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.

Hi again Amie, as I've mentionned, I know nothing sweetie. I was just trying to determine if, at a glance, you could recognize it was a Red Cross blanket and it sounds like you can so it's all good. As I said: that was a brilliant idea! I feel for you girl: been there with the tattered fingers with a deadline. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada

Amie,

That is so very appropriate to give him the Red Cross Blanket as the backing. Michael will surely be very moved, by all the fans are contributing, can't wait to see the photo. You must feel honored too!

Thanks to you and everyone for all the hard work involved.

Ok guys, I'm getting a 3 foot birthday card sent to be signed in the lobby of the York, show for Michael's BD.  I have to give them what I want it to say by tomorrow...need your help...what should it say?    Here is the site the card is coming from  http://www.bigfunnycards.com/  ...which design and what should it say...I'm thinking the front should say Happy 60th, Michael    From all your Fans.

Then what inside????

 

Hi Gail, what a fun and brilliant idea! Lol Hmm, I have a few ideas... How about: “Warmest wishes for a very happy ‘back 9’”, or “We wish you as much happiness as you bring us”, or “Heartfelt thanks for sharing your gift”... Oh and Gail, maybe on top, it should say: “From the best fans in the world”, since Michael refers to us as such? Just a thought... Thank you so much for including us in this Gail, God bless you! :D Take care sweetie. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada

P.S.: This is almost too much fun! lol

I'm not good in writing so, I won't contribute but Sylvie, love your writing what could be on the card. Neat idea Gail. For those going Tuesday, enjoy, have fun&bring back reviews&photos.

That sounds fantastic Gail and absolutely terrific and thanks a million for doing !! :)    How about the inside saying something like :  "Thanks for the music Michael and for all the fun and laughter too !!   Hope your "back nine" prove to be the most wonderful, fulfulling and happiest so far !!" 

 

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.

P.S.   Forgot to say "Dogs With Hat Card" is the one I like !! :)
