In honor of Colin Firth's 51st birthday (coming up September 10), several of us from Firth Sisters have once again arranged with Oxfam America to have a donation fund started in Colin's name as a gift to him. All of Colin's fans from ANY site, from ANY country, can contribute to this gift. Oxfam America supports the same causes as Colin does through Oxfam UK, and often works in conjunction with Oxfam UK, so your donation will help facilitate the work Colin supports.

EVERYONE who makes a donation ($15 minimum) will have her name listed on the Oxfam birthday card that goes to Colin. The deadline (August 25) is set for two weeks before Colin's birthday so that Oxfam can send us the list of donors, which we post for all of you to check to make sure your name is listed. Then, any donor who was inadvertently omitted can contact us and we'll inform Oxfam before the card goes to final print.

*** If you wish to be anonymous, check the box that says "Yes, I wish to give anonymously". Your name will only be seen by the admins of this page.

*** If you are donating from outside of the USA, make sure that you select "other" on the STATE/PROVINCE box.


No Firth Fan Left Behind!

Aside from our names, the following message will accompany the card:

Dear Colin,

Birthdays are a time for reflecting on where we've been, and who we've been. As you celebrate your 51st birthday, we'd like to say, for us, you are a man whose great compassion and generosity make the world a more humane place. This donation to Oxfam in your name is our way of honoring your life to date, and wishing you many joyous, healthy years to come. And MANY congratulations on your much deserved and long overdue Best Actor Academy Award!

With much love and respect,
Your online fan community

This is our seventh year doing the Oxfam Tribute for Colin's birthday. We do it to show Colin how much his fans love and admire him for who he is--and to join him in making the world a better place. Last year, brought our six year total to $33,571.00. Can we possibly raise $6,400.00 this year and surpass $40,000.00? I know if anyone can, Colin Firth fans can! Let's give it a go, shall we?!

LET'S GO FIRTH FANS!
Twenty dollars is only the price of one DVD.

For that amount, you can make someone's life a little happier and give Colin
a gift that honors him for all of the exceptional work he does.


**** Firth Sisters is auctioning off a gift pack with Colin DVD's and other Colin items, and some Eco products. All proceeds raised go directly to Oxfam. For additional info, please go to: http://firthsisters.proboards.com/index.cgi

Sirs:
It's too late to reach Mr Firth for his birthday; but it's important for him to know that he has the respect of so many, not only for his talented acting; but also for his humanatarian heart.
My donation to Oxfam America will be mailed today in tribute to Mr Colin A Firth for his fifty-first birthday.

Praiseworthy indeed that both Colin Firth and his wife Livia uses their public profile to support good causes like Oxfam, that's being a true star.

Sandra--- This gift goes to Oxfam, not to Colin. He is made aware of our donation though, through the card Oxfam sends. Colin has only thanked us, his fans, through his publicist.

I would like to donate but I want to know if you ever get a personal reaction of Colin Firth about your donations?
