Katharine McPhee asks fans to ‘Dream Big’ to treat malariaPosted: January 19, 2012
A couple of years ago, Katharine provided the financing for a school in the West African nation of Burkina Faso. She plans to travel to Africa sometime after Smash finishes its first season of taping in March.
“The woman who runs the school actually came down with malaria and was very sick for several months,” she recently told USA TODAY’s Christie Garton. “I’d love to go back and see the see the school in person and meet her.”
The “Dream Big” campaign, which is raising money to treat children with malaria, will run through Feb. 16.
