Mandy Moore posted a message to fans on her official forum on Thursday (September 1), sharing her thoughts about Hurricane Katrina and providing an update on her music and film projects. Moore writes:
Hello there. Hope this finds you all very well. First off, I’m apologizing once again for my lack of communication with you guys. There just hasn’t been much to update you on. But more importantly, I can’t even begin to tell you how much my heart goes out to all the victims of Hurricane Katrina in the gulf coast. For some reason, I haven’t been able to manage to tear myself from the TV — as if watching the constant stream of coverage will somehow help make it all better. Not to sound like a broken record, but I recommend visiting redcross.org and making any kind of donation. Seriously.
