This year for Liam’s birthday charity drive 1dfansgive has chosen, after getting fan input, to benefit Doctors Without Borders in Liam’s honor.
Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation. We are committed to providing medical aid where it is most needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or gender and also to raising awareness of the plight of the people we help
Liam’s drive is at $3700.91 which is 37% of goal. To donate go here.
1dfansgive has set up two shops. One is for the US and one is for Non US. Each of the stores has tons of things with the designs below. Everything from T Shirts to mugs to phone cases. If there is an item offered on spreadshirt that you’d like to have with one of the designs below on it shoot thelarryagenda a message and Amy will get it up for you if she can. The proceeds of this merchandise goes to the drive.
A wristband for Liam’s drive can be purchased here.
Another person has offered to be a matching donor so there are five people (me, someone who would like to stay anonymous, ziamisthenameofmyship, laynefaire and liainpink) matching Loose Change for Liam donations up to $100 each month. That could be up to $500 extra for the drive each month!!!!! The first match will go in on 28 February while every month there after it’ll be the 29th. So remember to add Loose Change for Liam in your donation somewhere to have your donation matched. If $500 is donated in loose change each month and then matched by the 5 of us that will total $1000 for the drive each month. If it is done all 7 months between now and Liam’s birthday that would be $7000 for Liam’s drive which is well over half his goal! This means that if you choose to donate, for example, $5, your donation will be doubled to $10. If you donate $10, it will be doubled to $20, and so on.
I have offered to match any donations with the hashtag #songwriterLiam up to $250!!!
To participate Donate to Liam’s charity drive and make sure to include#songwriterLiam in the donation message for your donation to be matched! More info can be found here.

Also for every $100 in Loose Change Donations another beanie will up for grabs. More info can be found here.
