HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Singing sensation Barry Manilow
sent out the word to his fans, encouraging them to follow his lead and donate
funds to aid the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
In the aftermath of the destructive forces of Katrina, Manilow has offered
to help people triple the impact of their donations to those directly affected
by the natural disaster. For every dollar contributed to the Manilow Fund for
Health and Hope, the Fund will match it. In addition, dollar-for-dollar,
Manilow himself will match the original donation. The Manilow Fan Club raised
$150,000 in less than 48 hours and the pledges keep coming in!
Says Manilow: "We raised this money so fast ... It's shown us that
together we can really make a difference, so let's keep going!
All funds will immediately be donated to the American Red Cross. The
Manilow Fund for Health and Hope has no administration fees and is able to
pass on 100% of the donations to those who need it most.
