“So, in honor of his 36th birthday, his fans, completely on their own steam, raised more than £7,000 ($11,000) for a totally legitimate and useful charity? EESH! Is ANYONE safe around this guy? What is it with this guy?! Will this guy ever quit it?! Good grief. “Derrr, I’m Benedict Cumberbatch and I have a good head on my shoulders and a fair amount of humility and my priorities seem to be in the right place and it’s a pleasure to watch me succeed because I seem to have the talent to merit my success and the projects I choose are categorically interesting and it just so happens that my fans are the type of people who instead of desperately searching for photos of me buying a caramel macchiato and drawing cumstains on my Seven For All Mankind jeans, they’d rather pool their resources and help other people in need. Derrrrrr!” The worst”—
I am dying laughing at this article. O.M.G.
“Watson is talking to Irene Adler, Sherlock’s love interest (played by Lara Pulver), about his partner, and says in passing: “For the record, not that anyone cares, but we’re not gay.” Watson’s right. Nobody cares what he says — the internet has already decided.”—
Lol. Nobody cares, Watson.
Not about clothes; about charity.
So, you may or may not be aware that the lovely lady running benedictcumberbatch.co.uk has set up a charity donation site in honour of the lovely Benedict’s birthday. The money raised will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Her original target was £250. Current total? £5,070.21. If you haven’t already donated and would like to, click here to be taken to the donation page. You can donate via Paypal, so international donating should be easy, I think.
For those of you not familiar with the JustGiving website, it’s a way for donations to be given directly to charity, so there’s no doubt about the money getting where it needs to go. If you’re a UK taxpayer, please PLEASE make sure to tick the GiftAid box.
Benedict is aware of the fundraising effort (he was told after the Cheltenham reading). Let’s see how much more we can raise before his birthday on the 19th. Minimum donation is £2, and every little helps (it all adds up in the end).
To those of you that have donated so far:
If you’re not able to donate, don’t worry. If you can, and do, then thank you.
Thank you for reading, have a lovely morning/afternoon/evening/night.
