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.
I sure will Thanks much!

I talked to Andrena this morning and she has the list of donations for Red Cross and MBC to send Michael (those who did this yesterday are all included). She has the cards and a few presents ready to take to his office as well. Sylvie and Sylvia she has both of yours ...she asked me to let you know. Gail
Gail, you have made my week, thank you so much! Please thank Andrena for us too and God bless you for keeping track and orchestrating everything you did Gail, much appreciated. Big warm bear hugs to you, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada xxx
That's great Gail!
Robin in MD :)
Thanks for letting me know that Gail and you don't know the sigh of relief I have just sighed for I was convinced it was lost for life has been a little bit of a disaster over last few days and even today on way back home had to get car into garage and have got to wait till tomorrow to find out how major it is and I thought the way it is going that package that Andrena has to pick up is not going to be mine.....so how glad I am to hear one thing has gone right....maybe life is on the up after all !!!! LOL. Thanks for letting me know and please thank Andrena for all she has done and is still doing !! :)
Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
Ok...I've just gotten off the phone with Tami, Michael's tour manager and emailing with Robin. All is set. Tami is taking the cake to the venue before the show and giving it to the stage crew. After the intro song the band is going to play Happy Birthday and bring out the cake and at that time the card will be brought forward and given to MB. All parties concerned seemed to think this will all work "perfectly". ..so we shall see!! I love it when a plan comes together!! Please post a reivew and pictures in the review thread when you can anyone going!!! Thanks everyone...I think we did it!!!
WHEW!!! That is wonderful Gail.. I am still hoping we can find a table for the card in the lobby. I am so glad this is going to work out..
Will tell Sally.
Robin will be ready with the camera!!!! :)
Looking forward to hearing all about it, Robin!
