02-10-10: It’s Our Anniversary!

That’s right, Gerard Butler Dot Net is celebrating its 9 year anniversary! We can’t believe it’s been 9 years since three friends decided to create a place for people to learn about a little-known actor who played Dracula and Attila.  How time flies and how things change!!!  We couldn’t be happier to still be here and still supporting a man we have come to call “friend” through all his success and hard work.

Of course, we wouldn’t be here without the countless hours of help from volunteers who help manage our gallery, news and newsletter.  We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the countless contributions from fans across the globe who send in their pictures and news finds.  We couldn’t do what we do without the continued support of Gerry, Alan Siegel (thanks guys!!) and the film professionals who send us project news and updates!!

In those nine years, we have raised over $300,000 for a variety of charities.  Our Global Birthday Celebration events in October brought in $12,000 for a variety of charities in the US, Scotland and Japan.
