When David Archuleta’s first CD was released, the U.S. WalMart versions featured a bonus track — Works for Me.
Unfortunately for Canadians, WalMart stores in this country didn’t carry the bonus-track version. So fans on this side of the border either had to travel to the States, rely on American friends or do what I did — contact Team Archie.
They couldn’t have been more amazing. Although they didn’t require it, I made a donation to Team Archie to cover the CD they sent to me. But then I was so touched to find out that volunteers made special trips to WalMarts in the U.S. to buy the records then mail them out to “giftees” that I donated again … and again.
They do wonderful work to share David’s music legally and internationally, but their requests for CFTH are way ahead of donations right now.
Here’s a message from Team Archie:
“We are running a Gifting Campaign for David Archuleta’s music. A lot of his fans either do not possess a credit card, or have other financial limitations, or limitations based on location (many international countries do not sell his album or have itunes stores) and may end up acquiring his music for free rather than purchase them. We would much prefer that all of David’s fans receive his music legally so that he will benefit from royalties as well as sales figures. Free downloads do not count towards his commercial success, and we all want him to do well, right?!”
