Paul McCartney's message for the Paralympics [Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 07/11/08 7:49 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
This week, a recorded message from Paul McCartney was shown on TV in UK.
About recording the message, Paul said, "I met leading rider Sophie Christiansen and was completely blown away by her skill, dedication and the fact that she had won a gold medal for Britain, so I felt I had to do something. My suggestion was simple why not create an ad that would highlight the work and call on the British Public to donate much needed money. It was the start of a truly amazing effort from all those involved most of whom gave their time for free."
