Paul McCartney’s Charity Work
In 2000, McCartney released A Garland For Linda, a tribute album to his wife, who died of breast cancer. Proceeds went to The Garland Appeal – a fund to help cancer patients. In 2001 he played a big part in organizing the Concert For New York City.
In 2004, he donated a song to aid the “US Campaign for Burma”, in support of Burmese Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. He performed on Band Aid’s charity single and took part in Live Aid.
McCartney performed at the Live 8 concert in London on 2 July 2005 with U2. He is a patron of Adopt-A-Minefield. In 2003, he performed at a personal concert for the wife of a wealthy banker and donated one million dollars to charity.
Along with his daughters, Mary and Stella, Paul is a Patron of the Vegetarian Society. He said “As Patron, I am more than pleased and proud to be associated with the Vegetarian Society and to show my support for its work. If you think about it, what could be better than enjoying great tasting food that is not only good for your health, but also far better for the planet and the creatures that live with us upon it?”
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
