Now that I have caught your attention via a photograph of Anthony Head hugging a cute doggy I would like to tell you about something: This year is the second year of the ASHBD Project and, more importantly, Anthony Heads 60th birthday, and as such, we have to beat last years total amount raised for charity and amount of messages from fans. So far, we aren’t beating it, so please, read this post, consider your options, and take part in any way you can.
For those of you who don’t know what ASHBD is, it’s a project for fans in which we make a video of messages from fans (like a birthday card) and we donate money to a charity Anthony supports (like a birthday present).
Messages: You can send in either a video message or a written messagefor the video to email@example.com the recorded messages must be under 45 seconds per speaking person (but if you go a little over don’t worry, I’m fine with giving people a few seconds extra so they can say their part) and written messages must be under 50 words (again if you go a little over it’s no problem) and if you are unsure about your English skills, don’t worry, I’ll check spelling and grammar and fix any mistakes in written messages before putting them in the video. If you need any help with your message, either written or recorded just message me, here or at the E-mail above.
Donations: This year we decided to ask Anthony Heads partner which charity to donate to and she suggested the Doris Banham Dog Rescue, a charity they are both a patron of. This charity saves 100s of pound dogs from destruction every month. They take them to rescue places with non-destruction policies. If a rescue place cannot be found in time to save the dog’s life, they pay for a temporary boarding place until they can move the dog to rescue. Last year we raised £702.26 ($1083.98) for Dogs Trust. We are hoping to beat that total this year as it is Anthonys 60th. You can donate through our Just Giving page and the total will be added to the video which will then be sent to Anthony on his birthday.
If you feel like you can’t do either of the above just spread the word, and remember, anything, anything at all, be it a 10 word message or a £1 donation will be gratefully accepted and Anthony will appreciate it, I assure you. (no, honestly, I met him in Cardiff this year and he kept on thanking me for last year. Video proof here, it’s near the end)
