Sabine is at the event! She would have heard, and seen the announcement first hand. :) scream

 

Thank you, Pinkie, as well for keeping us up to date with all the twitter stuff. I'm afraid I'm not able to type too well at the moment so I've been unable to do a lot myself.

Alex's thank you speechhug...thanks also to Mariposa for finding it and to Mizzoh for uploading to YT.

I'm so proud for Alex he's obviously in shock about winning and so humbled by it.


ETA make sure you have the volume up because the sound is not that good and there is a lot of background noise.

Have added the transcribe under video so it makes it easier to see what Alex is saying.

Quote:
"I'm really lost for words. It's a great honor to be here. I'm not even prepared because I was thinking... I'm deeply humbled to be among all of you, especially the other fine gentlemen who have been nominated for this award.

"You know, when I was 17 and I got my driver's license and I stamped the thing .... the right thing to do and maybe it would make me more popular with the girls. I didn't really know what that meant or anything about it. And when I read the script for Three Rivers it became so apparent to me that maybe we could do something on top of the TV show.... That's what led to my relationship with Tenaya and Donate Life America. We formulated a plan and got to put it into action. You could find me any day whilst I wasn't shooting in my trailer tearing scripts apart... I don't know what else to say, but thank you so much, this means the world to me... Unfortunately Three Rivers came to a close. We actually made thirteen episodes and five are yet to air and they will.

"Three Rivers may have been laid to rest, but my support of this incredible organization has certainly not. Thanks to all very much."

Yeah I got a google alert from the main blog site this morning and watched the speech there. So touching. He was obviously amazed at the result. I was in tears and then laughter as I listened to him. I am SO proud of him and everything that is being done around the world to bring Donation into everyone's life.

Thanks, Mizz and Oz, for the photos. Look at that smile. I'm so happy for him. What a guy!!!

Once again, CONGRATULATIONS, ALEX!

ETA:  I so appreciate the transcription of Alex's acceptance speech.  It was hard for me to hear on the video, even with the sound turned up.

*cross posted from H-50 Fans*

Sabine was granted an interview with Alex as well. Tenaya had said she was going to try and make sure Sabine did get to interview Alex, but of course neither of us wanted to count our chickens before they hatched, so to speak. These Hollywood events can get pretty hectic, and there's usually a lot of different people vying for stars attention, so we weren't sure if Alex would have the time, or whether or not we'd be able to squeeze in past all the other press in order to ask him any questions. So it's wonderful that Tenaya did that for us, that she did make sure Sabine got the interview we'd been planning. I'll have to go send Tenaya a note of sincere thanks in a moment.

As for the questions, we had something I wrote up posted on the main blog, plus across most of the ML and Alex Forums, and Myspace etc, that included a special Email address for people to post questions to, and we received hardly any questions. I'm sure Sabine would have asked what ones she did get, but depending on how long she was able to interview Alex for, the rest will be ones we came up with ourselves. We agreed as well that our first priority was to be questions relating to Alex's work with Donate Life.

I haven't heard from Sabine yet. I was going to pass on my phone number to her before she left for the event, but I figured it wasn't fair for her to be calling long distance to Australia. I'm sure she'll have everything up, and posted as soon as she can.

The Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Donate Life also put together a little introductory/information gift folder for Alex. It included pictures of all of us, plus just letters of introduction saying who we were, why/how we got involved with supporting Donate Life, how Alex inspires us, fun bits and pieces about us, etc. I'm sure if Sabine was allowed to interview Alex he would have received the gift from us as well.

I included my story of why I decided to become involved with supporting Donate Life and Organ Donation. I can't post it anywhere in full because I didn't have permission from the families or people involved that I spoke about, so it's only being shared with a very limited number of people. Basically I spoke about a couple of people I had known/knew, one of whom was waiting for a Liver Transplant and was now suffering brain damage from Liver Failure, and another girl who would have eventually faced a Lung/Heart transplant, but who had died before she'd even had a chance for that to be a consideration.

This was the last part of the letter....

These are just two stories. There are others, other people I know facing the reality of eventually becoming an Organ Transplant Recipient. Or those who are on a waiting list, but whose condition has since deteriorated to the point where they will no longer be able to survive surgery. None of these people deserve to be sick, or die. **** doesn’t deserve to be a brain damaged former shell of herself; **** didn’t deserve to die. And neither do the tens, of hundreds, of thousands of other people in the world currently waiting for a life saving, life changing Organ Transplant.

This is why I support the work of Donate Life, and other similar organisations around the world, in their efforts to promote, encourage, educate, and raise awareness of Organ Donation, and to support the Transplant recipient community. And this is why I have devoted myself to working for the Alex O’Loughlin Fans for Donate Life.

I shared this with Tenaya as well. She said she wanted to pass it on to Alex so he could read it as well. I was so very honoured, and humbled that she was going to do that.

I capped his photos from the collage vid. Some of them are really fuzzy but I enlarged them a bit.

Great pictures! Alex looks wonderful! How could Donate Life NOT be thrilled to have such a bright, handsome and charming man as their Ambassador? Thanks to for the wonderful and hard work done by Sabine, Emerald, and everyone else associated with the cause. Tenaya Wallace is a treasure and has always been so kind to the fans!

Thank you so much, Nancy. It has been an honour to not only work for such a worthwhile cause, but to work alongside such a sweet, and integral person as Sabine Atkins. hug

Full Transcript of Alex's acceptance speech, this was the best I could do.

I'm really lost for words; it is a great honour to be here. I have nothing prepared, because I honestly didn't think it would go to me. I'm deeply humbled to be amongst all of you, but, you know, especially the others, all the fine gentleman…(indecipherable)

You know when I was seventeen and I got my driver’s licence, I stamped the thing that said Organ Donation, because I thought it’d be the right thing to do, and I thought it’d make me more popular with girls or something. I didn’t really know what that meant, or anything about it, and I when I read the script for Three Rivers it became so apparent to me that to maybe, to maybe we could do something on top of making a TV show. And that was probably my way in to…(indecipherable).

That’s what lead to my relationship with Tenaya and Donate Life America and now we’re (makes ‘tight friends’ gesture)…you know we like your plan and we’d like to put it into action (please note: closest translation I could get, may not be word perfect). And you could find me any day I was or wasn’t shooting in my trailer tearing scripts apart deeply; you know we have to tell these people’s stories…(indecipherable, I think he says something like ‘and focus on them’). And it became something else, (indecipherable – I think he says something like ‘where whenever I had’) felt deeply passionate about.

I really don’t know what else to say except thank you so much, this means the world to me. Especially Three Rivers (indecipherable), because we actually made 13 episodes, five are yet to air, and they will, they will air. They will air. Three Rivers may have sort of been laid to rest, but my support for this cause, and this incredible organisation (indecipherable) is certainly not. 

And thank you all very much.
