Paul McCartney Donates Signed Boxset To Julian Lennon Charity

Julian Lennon’s White Feather Foundation charity has been gifted by a signed boxset from Paul McCartney to raise money to help people who are dying from lack of clean water and sanitation.

The White Feather Foundation was named after something Julian’s father, Beatle John Lennon, once said to him if he should ever pass away. To let Julian know he was OK, John promised to send a message in the form of a white feather.

“Then something happened to me, whilst on tour with the last album, Photograph Smile, in Australia. I was presented with a white feather by an Aboriginal tribal elder, from The Mirning people, which definitely took my breath away. The White Feather Foundation was created for the purpose of giving a voice and support to those who cannot be heard. The tribal elders asked for my help, as I could bring awareness to their plight and to others who were suffering the same. Having had the White Feather bestowed upon me, I knew this endeavour was to be part of my destiny. One thing for sure is that the White Feather has always represented peace to me, as well as communication.”

The White Feather Foundation hopes to raise more than £1 million this year predominantly towards water and sanitation projects. They already have projects helping thousands of people in countries including Malawai, Haiti, Liberia, Somaliland, Chad, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kenya.

The Paul McCartney RAM boxset consists of 4 remastered CDs, 1 DVD, remastered Thrillington CD (the instrumental version of RAM, which Paul released under the pseudonym of Percy “Thrills” Thrillington), books, photographs and fascimiles of original hand-written lyric sheets.

At the time of writing, the autographed boxset is up to £1050.
