Mccartney To Host Virtual Dinner Party
Sir Paul McCartney has invited fans to an online dinner party - and is offering an exclusive song to anyone who donates money to charity.
The former Beatle will host the virtual bash, entitled Night of a Thousand Dinners, to celebrate World Environment Day and raise funds for the Adopt-a-Minefield campaign, of which he is an ambassador.
He is asking fans for a minimum donation of $25 (GBP13) if they want to download his new song Lifelong Passion (Sail Away).
MCCartney says, "The Night of a Thousand Dinners is not only a great way to raise money for a just cause, it's also a good way for friends and family to have fun together.
"With the growing concerns about world hunger, it should be a priority to clear arable land of landmines so that communities can once again grow their own food."
The virtual dinner party takes place on Thursday (5Jun08) on his official website, www.paulmccartney.com.
