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.

Thanks for posting the pictures Tami and the cake looks gorgeous. On the video, if it is the one as Sylvie says that Ruki took, then that is on this thread already for we got the day Ruki posted it on FB.
For Sylvie and Robin CA the cake is square and is done in white icing and in each corner there is a guitar, red and black, black and red with a blue clef positioned above guitar. Round each of the four edges there are musical bars (4) with different coloured notes on them and then in the centre at the top it looks like a piano (?) in glass or crystal and then further down in the centre is another set of musical bars with notes done in black and it is in a squiggly, drifting off, curving shape and below it is again in black "Happy Birthday Michael !!" and there is a black guitar to the side of the writing and I just wish we could all have got a bit !!!!! LOL

Great cake...............very thoughtful
So what does this mean for me to view the video? Is there a link that I can go to without going onto Facebook? That is really what I need. Just to view it without going onto Facebook. Thanks for your help!!!
Hi Tami and below is the link into Ruki's video of the cake presentation.

Hi Tami, I just wanted to let you know that the link to the video Sylvia gave you is a public one, which means you can see it without being registered on Facebook. I'm not on FB, but I did hear it. Hope that clears that up, take care sweetie and thanks again for sharing your pics and having such a great cake done from all of us to Michael! :D Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada
