02-10-11: An Unbelievable TEN Years with Gerard Butler!


WOW, we can’t believe it, but it’s true …. Gerard Butler Dot Net is celebrating its TEN year anniversary!
We can’t believe it’s been 10 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, Danielle Robinson (thanks guys!!) and the film professionals who send us project news and updates!!

Every year so many of you want to wish Gerard a Happy Valentine’s Day, we at GerardButler.Net strive to make those wishes also benefit those in need. Instead of sendings cards and gifts, we ask that you use the same amount you would have spent on those things and donate it to Kids Kicking Cancer. Over the last four years, GB.Net has raised over $60,000 during this campaign.  This year’s campaign will run until March 15, 2011.  Click here to donate and leave a Valentine’s message for Gerry!

All the career achievements have now been transferred to the new platform.  Most can be rated and reviewed right on their individual pages.  We didn’t include the ratings/reviews option for the stage work or some of the minor films in which Gerard appeared.

Finally, GB.Net’s 8th Anniversary is coming up this week, but we don’t want to forget founding admin K’s BIG 4-0 Birthday, which was yesterday, February 7!  This site is all YOUR fault, but we love you anyway!  Hope you had a fabulous day!!
