In a message on the Grove for Gerard Butler webpage, Alan Watson Featherstone, Trees for Life’s Executive Director wrote: “I’m deeply touched by the tremendous support of the fans of Gerard Butler, who have donated trees for what is by far the biggest grove we’ve yet had sponsored in the Caledonian Forest. Well done and thank you to everybody.”

04-10-08: US Charity Convention Update

We are pleased to report that the preliminary total is in for the donation that will be made to Kids Kicking Cancer on behalf of the 2008 US Charity Convention held this past weekend. Many thanks to Tracey for getting us the total so quickly. The tentative total raised is (drum roll, please…): $30,451.92!!

There are still a few donations coming in from various sources and a minor issue with the hotel bill, but both those can only bring the total up. THANK YOU SO MUCH to the members of the committee, everyone who participated in the event and donated items to the raffle!!! Thanks as well to those, both attendees and non-attendees, who threw in “a little something extra” for the charity. Your kindness, generosity and support has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated.

04-09-08: US Charity Convention, More Videos and Nim’s Island News

2008 US CHARITY CONVENTION

The party has ended and most everyone has returned home from what can only be described as ONE FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!! Congratulations to the DC convention committee, chaired by Dee and Tracey, for a wonderfully planned event!! Thanks to the many, many companies and individuals who donated items for the raffles. There were so many wonderful things to choose from and the movie-themed baskets were just AMAZING!!

Thanks as well to Gerry for graciously signing so many items for the raffle and sending word of his heartfelt thanks to the fans for all their support and admiration for the fine work they do for Kids Kicking Cancer and other worthwhile causes.

Early estimates are that this convention may have exceeded the successes of our three previous conventions in funds raised for Kids Kicking Cancer!!! We are beyond excited and awaiting the final hotel bill and bus rental charges before coming up with the final tallies so keep checking the site for the total amount raised from Saturday evening’s event.

One of the major announcements of the evening was the news that the fine work started by the MAG Tarts for this event will continue for many years to come. Their non-profit, started to benefit the convention, will become the non-profit arm of GerardButler Dot Net and Dee and Tracey have graciously agreed to continue to serve the organization so that other events and the website can benefit other charities nationwide through the groundwork they have set. The MAG Tart legacy and all their hard work will live on!!!!

Fan photos from the convention are coming in and being added to the gallery. Please contact Gieselle if you have any you would like to submit!

MULTIMEDIA
Thanks to Dave for sending us the link to his video from the Nim’s Island premiere. Here’s what he had to say about it:

So i attended the movie premiere of Gerard Butler’s latest movie Nim’s Island. The premiere took place at the Graumann’s Chinese theater on Hollywood Blvd on March 30,2008. Gerard was great, he came over signed autographs for his fans. At one point Gerard is signing and a fan asks Gerard to sign. Gerard having seen this man before and believing he sells the autographs, Gerard proceeds to tell the fans in attendance to all give the man a slap before they leave. It was very funny. Right after that Gerard proceeds to sign an autograph on a sign some fans had made and he also poses for a picture with the sign that the fans had made. As i’ve stated before Mr.Butler is one of the best actors, not only for his work but for taking the time to interact with his fans.
