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 email@example.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:
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.
I have a copy of that phone call and I sound like I'm 12 no wonder they asked how old I was !!!!
Do you believe I still have an old Black rotary phone we sold most of our antiques not long ago we had to make some room for the new little BOY bub due in May.
But that is one I kept :)
Gosh and I forgot how heavy they were I couldn't imagine sitting down and holding that earpiece to your ear for too long LOL!!!
Love Dianna xxx
Dianna... Congrats on your soon to be new addition!!!
The old phones are heavy aren't they??? My son has an old one that we used to let him play store with...lol How about the super long coiled cords that you could walk from room to room with???? Hysterical!!! Now all our phones just die if we don't charge the phone batteries....ahh..the new technologies and innovations. lol
Good times Dianna....
