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 very, very much indeed for posting the pictures of the card Sally.....it is beautiful and love the script writing that they have put on it and I do hope you get plenty of fans to sign it and thanks go to you Gail and to both you, Sally and Robin and anyone else who will be involved, for doing this on behalf of us all.....thanks !! :)
For Sylvie and Robin CA what the card actually says now is........
On front at top......"Happy 60th" and then toward bottom "Michael" and this print is in bold black block lettering.
Inside the card and written in beautiful script and covering practically the whole of the right hand side of the card are the words......
"Today we get to say what it means to be your true fans
Today we say thank you for the music
Today we wish you complete health and happiness
Today we wish all your dreams continue to come true
Today and ALWAYS love and best wishes
We are cheering from the gallery wishing you many holes in one
With warmest wishes for a very happy "back 9"
and then centred as it would be if you were signing a card the word "Love" is written with below that centred on the page are the words; "The Best Fans in the World"
