QUILT TO BENEFIT RISING STAR OUTREACH
INSPIRED BY DAVID ARCHULETA
During the seventh season of American Idol, people across the world came to know and love the beautiful voice and talent of 18 year old vocal artist David Archuleta. For the past year, Archuleta has traveled across the United States, into Canada, and overseas to Malaysia, Singapore, the UK, and the Philippines sharing his voice and music with his rapidly growing fan base.
When not performing on stage, David uses his voice and spirit for another purpose. He works diligently to raise awareness and encourage participation in charities to benefit others. David’s inspirational message and giving spirit, have propelled many into positive action in support of his targeted charities. The organization “Angels For A Cause,” composed of David Archuleta fans works cooperatively or in teams to achieve designated goals.
One of David’s identified charities, RISING STAR OUTREACH (RSO), works to improve the lives of individuals affected with leprosy in India. Funding is currently being sought to build and furnish a new school for the children in the leprosy-affected colony. Fueled by desire for RSO to reach its goal, a team of “Angels For A Cause” members called “Hearts & Hands” have worked to create something very unique and special.
With contributions of supplies, embroidery, and construction efforts from team members nationwide, a “David inspired” quilted throw and pillow have been lovingly created. The two pieces include hand embroidered “fan chosen David Archuleta phrases” and were both autographed by David himself on August 8th, 2009. At this time, he expressed great appreciation for the efforts being made to benefit RSO. Both items titled “Gifts From The Heart,” will be auctioned and will also include the (soon to be released) David Archuleta Christmas album “CHRISTMAS FROM THE HEART”(currently available by preorder on Amazon.com).
Bids for the items can be placed separately on e-bay.com from October 1st at 12midnight ET through October 10th with the auction ending on October 10th, 2009 at 12 midnight ET.
ALL proceeds to benefit RSO.
