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:
then E-mail Gail at firstname.lastname@example.org 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:
c/o Michael Bolton Charities
P.O. Box 936
Branford, CT 06405
*Note that the deadline for recieving cards and presents is February 20th 2013, whether you send them to either Gail or Michael Bolton Charities.

Hi Kathleen, I've sent you a friend request, so if you add me as a friend, I can send you a personal message with Amie's address. Take care and thanks for contributing! :D Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Cool Kathleen about your square. Boltonnut from L. A. CA who loves life & Michael Bolton :)
i think all these ideas are fabulous! I dont know which one i want to pick! Perhaps all of them..I'm not a millionaire - as most of us out there aren't,,but I'm sure we could all donate "something" to each cause..and the quilt is by far, the easiest!
Hi Lillian and welcome to the forum. If you can contribute anything to one of Michael's favorite causes, I'm sure he'll be thrilled, whenever you do it. However, If you'd like to donate in honor of his birthday, there's not that much time left, nor for the fabric square. Amie, who's putting the wall-hanging together, told me something like February 10 could be the cut-off date, but I put in February 1st so she'd at least know how many squares she'd have to work with. If you want to contribute, you don't really need to make it fancy: just the right size with your name an location is all we need. Take care Lillian and hope you do join in! :D Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
WELCOME to the forum Lillian and great to have you on board for Michael's 60th and as far as the donations are concerned just go onto internet and type in Michael Bolton Charities and up it pops and it to make a donation couldn't be any easier and of course, it is "simple" if you already have a paypal account for donations are linked through that too. Just remember to mark that it is for Michael's 60th birthday or/and send an e-mail to Andrena informing her at email@example.com On the donations to MBC Andrena has said and Gail has placed in the description for thread, a cut off date of 20th February. Good luck with the square if you decide to do that too Lillian !! :)
Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
Welcome Lillian to the best MB forum!!!! Visit and enjoy yourself and hope you post often!!!
