07-12-10: Gerard in Machine Gun Preacher, Support Kids Kicking Cancer

Gerard has started work on Machine Gun Preacher in Michigan.  View set photos here.

Machine Gun Preacher is the a biographical story of Childers, a drug-dealing biker who finds religion and dedicates his life to helping Sudanese children escape the Lord’s Resistance Army in Africa. Childers founded the Angels of East Africa, a Children’s Village in Southern Sudan, for the children he saves from the LRA.  Read more about the production…

Special Note: As always, we discourage fans from planning special road trips to visit the movie set (there is never a guarantee you will get a chance to meet Gerry, especially while he is working) and to use common courtesy when in the vicinity of the production.

KIDS KICKING CANCER
In recognition of Gerard’s work in the Detroit area, we are running a small charity campaign for the Detroit-based charity, Kids Kicking Cancer, an organization Gerard has supported  for many years.
If you would like to contribute to the charity, visit their website.  For every $10 donated, we will enter you in a drawing to receive a Gerard Butler autographed Gamer poster or autographed Enniskarry Limo memo.  Send donation reciepts to events@gerardbutler.net (they do not have to be in $10 increments, if you submit a reciept for $30, you will get three entry numbers via email from us).

DO NOT DONATE TO OUR CHARITY FOUNDATION, only donation receipts going directly to KKC (through PayPal, Network for Good or by mail) will be accepted.

Donation receipts will be accepted until August 31, so if you mail your donation in, do it soon in order to recieve your receipt in time to submit it to us.  Drawings will be conducted on September 2.

Gerard made a visit to Haiti with Ben Stiller, Paul Haggis, Demi Moore, Susan Sarandon, Olivia Wilde and Sean Penn with the non-profit, Artists for Peace and Justice. View more pictures… | Read about the visit…

In an article he wrote for USA Today, Gerard says about his recent charity efforts with Kids Kicking Cancer:

Kids Kicking CancerEvery contribution makes a difference. Along with my support of Haiti, I’ve had a long-standing involvement with the charity Kids Kicking Cancer. Started by Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg — a martial arts black belt who lost his first child to leukemia — KKC teaches kids with cancer or cancer-related illnesses the healing, mind-body themes of martial arts training. They learn methods of relaxation, meditation, pain management, deep breathing and karate — all of which provide them with a sense of purpose, teamwork and unity. The children I meet as part of my work with KKC are such an inspiration to me. I get so much more back from these kids than I give. The power, the strength and the sheer joy in these kids — many fighting for their lives and in chronic pain — is incredible.
