This year, hoping to do even more, Kate recorded an original song, "Christmas Smiles". So, this year, in addition to her tips, Kate will donate all her proceeds from downloads of this single made on iTunes and Amazon MP3 between Thanksgiving and December 25. Obviously, the more downloads Kate sells, the more money will go to finding a cure for children's cancer. Additionally, there will be a free charity concert held at Potbelly's in Buffalo Grove, IL. (the restaurant where Kate sings) on December 18th, with the restaurant donating to the cause 25% of all dinner sales between 5 and 9 PM that night.
It helps that it's a pretty good song, but I'd have bought a download regardless. How can you not? Download the song through Amazon MP3 or iTunes. To learn more, visit Kate's web site. And, although the download version is a full band and professionally produced, here's a video of Kate performing the song solo and unplugged.
