‘Chords of Strength’ Gifting

Spread ‘Chords of Strength’ around the World – Adopt an ArchAngel for COS

UPDATE: As of July 29, 11.59pm US east coast time, COS gifting will be closed and we will not consider giftee requests submitted after this date.

UPDATE: We still have about 25 fans from Asia and Latin America who are in need of this amazing book. To gift, please email davidbeyondborders@gmail.com and let us know how many books you’d like to ship out, and we will reply with the giftees’ names and mailing addresses. Alternatively, you can make a donation to our PayPal account davidbeyondborders@gmail.com, by clicking on the “Donate” button below. You do not need to have a PayPal account to donate – VISA, MasterCard, AMEX and major credit cards are accepted.

We will then use your donation to purchase the books on Amazon and ship them to the giftees.

Please Note: If you donate to our PayPal account, please leave a note that your donation is for COS gifting, so that we will distinguish it from SBL gifting. Thank you!

David Archuleta’s new memoir “Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance” will be full of the phenomenal, positive influence and inspiration that we have all come to love in David, and that we know extends far beyond his music alone.

From our conversations with fans, there are many fans out there, especially outside North America, who find it difficult or impossible to get the book, either because it will not be available in their country and they cannot afford the high cost of buying it online and get it shipped to themselves, or even if it will be sold at their local bookstores, the price still exceeds their budget.

“David Archuleta Beyond Borders” (DBB) is launching the “Spread ‘Chords of Strength’ around the World – Adopt an ArchAngel for COS” campaign.

Calling for sponsors

If buying the book is not a problem for you, we appeal to you to “Adopt An ArchAngel”, by buying an extra book and shipping it to him/ her. DBB will screen all requests to be gifted the book, to ensure that they are genuine and come from really needy fans.

If you’d like to do your part to spread the goodness of David’s spirit that we know please email davidbeyondborders@gmail.com with your name, country, and your sponsorship budget or the number of books you’re willing to gift. See the end of this post for indicative costs of buying and shipping the book to various regions around the world, in US dollars.

We will match you with a giftee that suits your budget.

Calling for giftees

If you find it very difficult or impossible to obtain the book by yourself, especially due to financial reasons, maybe we can help you! Please email davidbeyondborders@gmail.com, give your name, mailing address including country, and answer the following questions:

1. Why are you not able to get the book yourself?

2. Pick a chapter title from COS and write about what that means to you.

3. Tell us how you are active on one of David’s fansites or tell us the name of another fan who knows you well and can be your character reference.

4. Type out this pledge, “I, (name), in all honesty and truth pledge that I genuinely am unable to get the COS book myself and am therefore asking to be gifted.”

You must answer all 4 questions before we will consider your request to be gifted. We will then match you with a suitable sponsor who will gift you the book.

Please only submit a request to be gifted if you really cannot get the book yourself. David Archuleta is a truthful, honest person and we as fans ought to be truthful and honest like him too. 🙂
