An interesting role rumor has popped up on the Google Alerts about a minister in Pennsylvania.  Samuel Childers is a minister, a soldier and loves to ride his Harley-Davidson — an unusual combination to say the least.  Now a movie is being made about his life.  Gerard recently visited Childers at his church in Central City.   He may play the “Machine Gun Preacher” in the movie.  Screenwriter Jason Keller wrote the screenplay about Childers, who got his unique moniker from his aggressive style of saving African children from warlords.  Read more…

Our two latest recipients in the Kids Kicking Cancer campaign for personalized autographed photos of Gerard are Andrea B. from Gates, TN and Kathleen F. from O’Fallon, IL.  Some have asked how we are picking the recipients, so here is an outline of the process.  All donation receipt submissions are stored in a database (including all previously submitted PayPal donations AND checks received).  The database is downloaded to Excel and we use Random.org to randomly select a line number from that Excel spreadsheet. To date we have had over 680 donations for a total of more than $26,000 donated to KKC.  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!

GerardButler.Net has been fully supported by Amazon.com commissions for close to five years (CafePress commissions go to our charity foundation), but those commissions are down with the economic challenges of the times.  While our hosting fees are covered, we still have expenses like domain registrations, postal mailbox, postage for contest winners and our newsletter service.  These expenses total close to $750.  Looking forward to 2010, we would love to cover those charges now and donate the Amazon.com commissions to charity at the end of the year.  If you would like to help support the website, click here.  Every little bit helps and thank you so very much for all your support n the past.  Without you, the fans, we would not still be here close to 9 years after we began. 😀
