Just two days Remain to Donate to the Michael Fassbender Fundraiser
On another note, I did some research on how common it is for fan communities to raise money for charities in honor of their favorite celebrity's birthday. I came across two to note. For one of the band members of Kiss, the fans raised nearly $6,000 for a musician program to sponsor 24/7 music in cancer patients rooms. And late yesterday on Twitter, it was announced that for Kristen Stewart's April 9th birthday, her fans raised an amazing $10,000 for Alzheimer's disease. I tweeted my congratulations to them, and my tweet as re-tweeted by about 40 Kristen fans, with an audience reach of nearly 100,000 people. The Stewart fans showed me an expansive enthusiasm that I hope this fandom has one day. But in the meanwhile, it is a small band of Fassinators who seem willing and able to participate in our fundraiser. And that would make it all the more sweeter if we could meet our goal of £1000. As you see, it is a fraction of what other fandoms have raised.
