Comment to donate for Richard Armitage’s 45th birthday!
It’s past midnight on August 22nd in the UK, where Mr. Armitage was born, so let the post begin.
I wish Mr. Armitage all the best for the next year of his life, and hope he has a very special day! Over the years, his person and his work have meant a great deal to many of us, and my continued participation in that tradition is meant as a very small thanks for the joy many of us have experienced in the Armitage fandom.
In honor of the occasion, I will make a donation of $1 (US) for each person who comments on this post from now until I close comments (probably around midnight my time on Monday night). A person is someone with a unique handle, email and IP address who leaves a comment here at my wordpress blog, or tweets to me in response to this tweet. Limit one comment or tweet per person. I will not accept comments from people who have been blocked. There is no limit on the donation, but if comments exceed past expectations I reserve the right to complete the donation in installments. When I have made the donation, I will publish proof on this page. I will leave a message on the JustGiving page but will not be sending separate notice to Richard Armitage.
As in years past, the money will be donated via JustGiving to Childline.
You may also want to give to one of Armitage’s other JustGiving charities. And Guylty is still taking bids and donations — there is now a premium for raffle among donors available — in her birthday fundraiser to benefit Save the Children as well.
Your comment does not have to have any particular content, but if you’re looking for something to say, you might share what you’d make Richard Armitage for a birthday dinner!
Again, happy birthday to Mr. Armitage and happy Armitage Day for the rest of us.
