Katharine McPhee checked in with her MySpace (@katharinemcphee) friends on Tuesday (November 18) with a bulletin discussing Thanksgiving, yourcause.com, and an appearance on ‘The View’. The ‘American Idol’ season five runner-up writes:
Hi everyone. I want first of all to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. I know I say it every year but we really have so much to be thankful for in comparison to a lot of the world. I know people are hurting and some are struggling financially and my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone. It sort of is a weird segue then into giving but some have asked about McPhee Outreach and what is going on this year.
Please go to yourcause.com and something that is very dear to my heart is there and tells how you can get involved if you choose. It is a project I have been working on for the past year. You will see that you can donate through an organization I am using. Global Compassion is not my organization but they are helping with passing the funds directly to the ground in Africa. Please know that every dollar goes directly to the project. On this project there is no “over head.” No one gets paid and that is why am working with them. Every brick is being paid for with each dollar. Do what you can. There are also books and back packs etc to be purchased. Please put in the note if you decide to donate, McPhee Outreach.
On another note, I will be on ‘The View’ tomorrow. I had waited to announce it because I was not sure it was going to work out in the schedule but it did. I am helping to promote David Foster’s new CD and DVD and PBS special. It was a great show and I love working with David.
That is about it.
All my love,
