Country star Tim Mcgraw is donating $43,000 (GBP26,875) to an array of
AMERICAN RED CROSS centres from the proceeds of his ONE BAND SHOW tour with the
DANCE HALL DOCTORS.
The cash, raised locally through ticket sales and select merchandise, will
be handed to Red Cross chapters in the cities where the tour stopped between
March and June (03).
The beneficiary chapters will use the donation for promote aware
awareness, emergency preparedness and disaster relief in their communities.
McGraw says, "We're living in a time where people need to stick together
and help one another. The Red Cross provides a critical role in disaster
response in this country.
"This donation is one way that we can help ensure that individuals and
families get the help they need when disaster strikes. I hope that our fans
will also be touched by the good work of the Red Cross and be inspired to
organization's work in whatever way they can."
