Dear Mr. Armitage,
Once again we are commemorating the 22nd of August 1971, that day you entered the world. A very happy birthday to you from this fangirl
never well wisher, sorrynotsorry.
Once again, a group of us has participated in a fundraising event organized by Guylty in the shape of an eBay auction and now the final tally is in.
Amazing. Totally and utterly amazing! I’m sitting here speechless and not a little proud.
My little contribution came in the form of three items donated to be auctioned off (total proceeds of 186, 50 €) and I managed to snag one of Ani‘s lovely crafts for myself.
This news even garnered a
literal high five from Mr. Kate who has been extremely patient with me during the auction days in general and the “hot phase” in particular during our last three seaside vacations. The RA Birthday Auctions are now an accepted part of our annual treck up North to the Sea as much as waves, sand, seagulls and shrimp sandwiches.
We know that this sun will make a huge difference for LOROS, the recipients of this year’s auction bounty. Hopefully it makes you a little proud and happy to see what a group of people who have found each other because of you have achieved through creativity, hard work and community spirit.
As I said once before, fandom may be ABOUT you, but it usually isn’t FOR you. For a few days each August, we break that rule. This is for you from us with love. ❤
May the next twelve months bring happiness, exciting professional opportunities
*cough* production company *cough* and most of good health for you and yours.
Many happy returns of the day!
