Hi everyone, well this is my first attempt at starting a discussion so hope I’m doing this right... :D . A couple of weeks ago, I asked Gail when she thought would be a proper time to start thinking of what we fans want to do for our Michael’s 60th birthday. She said she was out of ideas, but suggested I’d start a thread asking fans for suggestions. I figure we have exactly 4 months, starting today,  to come up with something fun and get mobilised to achieve it. I’m no organizer, I just thought we could share ideas so let’s put our heads together and see what we can come up with! :D Take care and hugs to all, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada J

*The 2 most popular suggestions so far are:

 

- individual donations to michaelboltoncharities.com, mentionning they are made in honor of Michael’s birthday, of any amount you feel comfortable with.

-a collective wall-hanging made from personalized fabric squares sent by fans that will be stitched together. The 4 inch/10 cm squares (with small blank margin) only need have your signature and location but can be crafty as you are able. For

more info, ask here, or PM either me, or Amie Angeli who will be doing the stitching and presenting the finished product to our Michael.

 

**Note: The final deadline for recieving fabric squares is February 15th, so you don't have much time left. :D

**It would also mean a lot to Michael if fans donate to the Red Cross for victims of hurricane Sandy at:

www.redcross.org/

then E-mail Gail at boltoninfo@aol.com with your name and location, so she can add  them to the MBC donors list.

**If you feel strongly about sending Michael a card or personal gift, you may send it to:

Michael Bolton

c/o Michael Bolton Charities

P.O. Box 936

Branford, CT 06405

U.S.A.

*Note that the deadline for recieving cards and presents is February 20th 2013, whether you send them to either Gail or Michael Bolton Charities.

Thanks for the idea Mary/Meggie? Are you going 12/10? I know this ain't the place but.....Boltonnut from L. A. CA who loves life & Michael Bolton :))))

I am in for something like that too Robin CA for I think it is a terrific idea and remember Michael's favourite rose used to be the white !!! :)

Hey Robin, yes a few fans will be sending squares, but there's plenty of time for people to send them in. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Michael loves his fans, as well as his friends. I think a general outpouring of Happy Birthdays would make him very happy. He does one hell of an imitation of Rodney Dangerfield, and has one hell of a sense of humor, if that helps anyone. He is also the nicest, sweetest, GENUINE famous man that you'd ever meet..never full of himself, either, although he IS a perfectionist..and makes sure everything is perfect so that his fans get the best experience possible. Hope this helps..let me know.

Hi Patricia and believe you are a long standing fan of Michael's, as are the majority of us on here, and therefore I hope you appreciate that your knowledge of the man is also our knowledge but thanks very much indeed for coming in with your input and I think, without question or doubt, an "outpouring of Happy Birthdays" will definitely happen with personal birthday cards being sent to Michael but we also hope to possibly do something a little more especially in the giving of donations to his beloved MBC !! :)

Yes I've already done the charity Donation, and I'll be happy to send my card along with yours. Just let me know where you guys are sending yours, OK? And , in case you couldn't tell..I'm your TALL IRISH friend!! Thank you for respecting my wishes regarding privacy. These things can get blown way out of proportion, and I do not want that for me or Michael or my family, as I'm sure you can understand. Just keep me posted and I'll gladly send my card with everyone else's.. Thanks again..

Hi Patricia, sounds like Sylvia and you already know each other... :D To find out where to send your card, please write to Gail, our forum moderator at boltoninfo@aol.com and she'll E-mail it to you. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
