Best Actor (and Person) + Generous Fandom + Super Cause = RA Birthday Cybersmile Fundraising Triumph!

He's so modest, he'll never admit he was the on-going inspiration, but we all know he was!

He’s so modest, he’ll never admit he was the absent, but ever-present  inspiration, but we all know he was!

On the heels of a massive, collaborative social media fundraising campaign – to honor RA’s birthday – The Man Himself took to Twitter with personal thanks. RA, I think may I say, the pleasure was ours!

<HUGE, THRILLED GRIN> And drumroooollllllllllll, please!

The Cybersmile Foundation fundraising total at just after 8 PM US Eastern time: a GARGANTUAN… waaaait for it:
*   £10,142
*  
(which is $15,908 US)
*   raised by 448 donations!

So we not only exceeded the £10,000 Dream Goal, but also the 444 donations (to mark RA’s 44th birthday)! And, still, people are giving.

With all my heart, I believe RA’s ‘troops’ are the best fandom/Army any actor could imagine, and the most fabulous community of people to have as pals! At your core, you have kind and generous hearts, and when RA asks for your help – and he rarely does – you step forward and volunteer like the loyal, devoted, compassionate, unselfish people who are this fandom. Even fans like Jade – who wrote that she’s on the brink of homelessness – and others on fixed incomes and tight, tight budgets, contributed. All of you are sensational!

Cut to the chase… RA!

With apologies to Joshua Horowitz, who did a “Happy, Sad, Confused” photo with the Hannibal gang at Comic Con, I hope THIS was RA’s face HAPPY face today when he heard the news:

(And maybe he’ll give us a Thrilled-Beyond-Words selfie later!)

This, I think, is a great moment for the RArmy… and you insubordinate fans who gave generously, but won’t call yourselves part of the Army <heh> (And yes, I’m talking about you, Yvonne Lustenberger, m’dear Twitter pal!)

So we did it, troops! Raise a glass of pinot noir, vodka, a Red Dragon Tini, your favorite tipple, or just grab a bowl of chocolate ice-cream. You all deserve it.

I file this post with great affection for you all, and am proud to be a part of this community more than I can express.

Cheers, Marcia

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RA! We Cherish You, Each Other & Want to Help Make the Web A Kinder Place!

It's your BIRTHAY, RA!

It’s your BIRTHDAY, RA! August 22 at last!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RA!

But we all know – that to you – your birthday is much more than chocolate ice cream and loads of cupcakes: your birthday is an opportunity for your “well-wishers” – aka the RArmy – to demonstrate how much we care. And this year, on the anniversary of your debut on Twitter, your cause is making the web a kinder place.

In a post on Weibo, RA said: “Let us in the online world, cherish each other, care about each other.”

Since RA announced this birthday initiative, the RArmy has stormed the Cybersmile JustGiving website and has done so with kind, generous hearts (and open wallets!): TODAY – just after 5 PM US Eastern Time – RA’s troops have given £7,880 ($12,367 US) from 348 donors!

And it’s HOURS until Midnight of August 22! If you haven’t yet, again, here’s the link to donate.

Please, everyone, let’s do what we can to celebrate RA’s birthday
in a way that will make a difference to
thousands of people who need a hand.

If you’re feeling especially generous, all the organizations RA supports do incredible work with few resources. To also lend a helping hand to RA’s other causes, go to JustGiving for the rest of his listYoungMinds, Anthony Nolan,  Childline, Shelter, Barbado’s, and The Salvation Army, and give as generously as you can afford.

Richard Crispin Armitage couldn’t make his birthday wishes to us clearer than his two tweets today, and – through implication – his post on Weibo.

THIS year, we can let him know that we wish him a very Happy Birthday (which rolls around Saturday, August 22), by supporting the one cause upon which he has focused in these posts: Cybersmile!

(Sorry, I HAVE to add the “cupcake thing,” for nostalgia, if for no other reason. RA joined Twitter on his birthday last year and this shot was his very first tweet.. So RA: completely unexpected and adorable!)

And if you’re wondering about how he recommends we express our birthday wishes, via donating to Cybersmile, here’s his second tweet:

What’s more, there’s an RA WEIBO POST: “Let us in the online world, cherish each other, care about each other.”
Sounds like a clear Cybersmile reference, to me. Doesn’t it to you?

Wish RA a Happy Birthday & Change Lives at the Same Time!

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, on Sunday, August 22, Richard Crispin Armitage made his world debut.

Last year, on his birthday – Friday, August 22 – Richard Crispin Armitage (aka @RCArmitage) made his Twitter debut, and the photo above was his first tweet.

What a whirlwind of a year it’s been!  And now it’s birthday time again!

RA’s birthday is coming up this Saturday, August 22.

Unlike last year when he was in The Crucible at the Old Vic, this year we won’t know where he’ll be on his birthday. So for this time around – like many times before – some will probably send special gifts or greetings to the offices of his representatives; some will also send birthday greetings on Twitter; and some – including many from both categories above – will also choose to wish RA a happy birthday by supporting one of his chosen charities. RA has made it clear that he appreciates his “well-wishers”/followers/admirers/fans/Army supporting his causes.

RA supports a number of organizations doing remarkable, much-needed good work. For his list, go to JustGiving, and – because it hadn’t been added to RA’s JustGiving page at this writing – you can also give directly to his latest cause, CyberSmile, through its JustGiving page (All individual groups’ JustGiving links are also below.)

Give as generously as you can afford. We know these causes mean much to RA, and – who knows? – he might even prefer that we spend our money there, rather than on snazzy fluorescent socks or tubs chocolate ice cream.
