Love Deb XX
Thanks very much Debra for starting this thread and finding out the information you have concerning the donations for I was under the impression, following on from a question I asked in the thread when the reply that was posted stated, that Jennifer and Juliet would be presenting Michael with the cheque when he performed next at the RAH and below is the link to that thread and if you go to page 14, the last page, you will see my question and the response so for something else to have been done with the donations and as you say, for us not to have been informed isn't, in my book, quite correct and I should like to know what monies have already been sent and to what charities and considering I donated it would have been very nice to know that a thank you had been received from one of the charities apart from, as I say, knowing what monies have already been disbursed when I was still under the impression that all monies were being held in the bank account.

Thank you Debra!!! I appreciate your honesty. I remembered what happened to me and the fierce words used on me when I mentioned that I only donated to MBC for this very reason of transparency that you are talking about. It is no wonder the second event never took place. Good for you for expecting to know WHERE your HARD earned money has gone and for the other dedicated fans that donated. I HOPE the FACTS are published on the forum and that you Debra receive ALL the answers to your questions for they are more than fair to ask. There is something to be said for established charities.....such as MBC.... as the proper venue for people to donate their hard earned money. That was all I was saying last year :)

Just to add I think it's good this is getting resolved for those who contributed.. I remember the strong words used here then too Kathy R and they were uncalled for.. I also said at that time I only donate directly to the MBC and then these problems are not an issue. When it's someone's hard-earned money anyone that donated money had a right to ask what happened to it and why it took so long to get it to the proper charities. I don't blame anyone for asking as I would have too long before now if it had been my own hard earned money. Just my 2 cents. It's great for anyone to donate but best to just send it to the MBC directly..

Hi Debra, good to read you posting sweetie! Well it sounds like at least you are getting some answers from Jennifer about your questions so that’s good. I just wanted to give you a few links I’ve found on the U.K. 1st fan reception.
First ever U.K. Michael Bolton fan reception
in the “general chat” section and in the “off topic” section:

Tickets on sale now UK fan reception
U.K. fan reception, thank you
I didn’t read through all of them and I know there are more, but I believe Jennifer mentioned the total in the last link I’ve given you. Not sure about completed total but thought I’d let you know. I hope you and Sophie get the info you’re looking for. Take good care of yourself Debra and don’t be a stranger okay? :D Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Thanks Catherine for letting everyone know there is a response on fb :)
Sophie Tennet I totally agree with Mum (Debra Tennet). I think that everyone that gave you their hard earned money for 3 great causes should know when it is going and how much of it is going to each one!! Everyone that went to the fan reception and people that donated from else where did not expect that nearly a year on they would still be waiting to find out how much will be going to help each of these charities!! I can't believe you expected people to give you more money to come to another fan reception this year when last years money has not gone any futher than a bank account. I think you owe everyone involved the truth of what has happened!! Thank you
