Quilt Auction to benefit Rising Star Outreach (RSO)

16 September 2009



Recently DA Honeybees and other David Archuleta fan sites were asked to help spread the word about a new charity auction. We are happy to do our part. Sherry Gilbert is working with Hearts and Hands, a group of Angels For A Cause fans, to promote the upcoming auction of a quilt throw and pillow. The handmade items were signed by David Archuleta; proceeds from the auction will go to Rising Star Outreach. The lovely quilt and pillow set is called “Gifts From The Heart” and features heart shapes on denim and plaid squares. See larger images by clicking on each thumbnail below.

Sherry Gilbert says, “I’ve been involved in charity work for various family members…so what propels me to want to help David Archuleta and honor him? Of course, there is his music and talent, but more than that, it is his genuine character and humble spirit that have been an inspiration….It’s a privilege to give back a little to help others, and at the same time to honor David, for he gives so much of his time and of himself.”

Sherry Gilbert’s press release below provides all the details. On the YouTube video about this special charity auction, you’ll see pictures of David as he signs the quilt.

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 colony for leprosy patients. Fueled by desire for RSO to reach its goal, a team of “Angels For A Cause” members called “Hearts & Hands” has worked to create something 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. David autographed both items 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 12 midnight ET through October 10th with the auction ending on October 10th, 2009 at 12 midnight ET.

ALL proceeds to benefit RSO.

Please help “save the day” for children suffering from this curable condition.
