From an article in The Ledger about the Shine a Light Gala (see sidebar–no, over on the right…yes, there!):
[…]Castro’s name came up during a meeting of the program’s advisory council to plan the fundraising weekend.
“I said, ‘Who do we need to have as our entertainment?’ and one council member immediately said, ‘Jason Castro,’ ” Hitchcock said. “He’s got a very strong Christian passion, and he was on ‘American Idol,’ and he really likes doing charity for children’s needs.”
Hitchcock said she contacted Castro’s manager, who said the singer is deeply concerned about the sex-trafficking issue, and Castro quickly agreed to perform at the gala.

To quote from PR Newswire:
Today, Malaria No More, a nonprofit organization determined to help end malaria deaths in Africa, will bring former American Idol finalists Jason Castro (Season 7, 4th place), Melinda Doolittle (Season 6, 3rd place) and Elliott Yamin (Season 5, 3rd place) to Washington, D.C. to meet with members of Congress to voice American support for the malaria fight and celebrate the contributions of the U.S. Government.
They will also be performing at a reception tonight.
And Malaria No More put up this video last week:
As Jason says in the video, malaria is a disease we have the power to eradicate.
