Thinking about a Christmas gift for Alex? Dedicate a rose to him and
support his charity of choice: Donate Life!



In August, the German Alex O'Loughlin Fan Club held a fundraiser
benefiting Donate Life in honor of Alex's birthday. Not only was he
extremely delighted about the support from his fans, he also matched
the total amount of their financial contributions.

On January 1, 2011, Donate Life participates in the famous Rose Parade
in Pasadena, CA, with their float called "Seize the Day!". It will be
decorated with the roses dedicated to individuals who have given,
received, await the gift of life, or have distinguished themselves in
their work for raising organ donation awareness.

We think dedicating a rose would be a great way to honor Alex's
continued work as Donate Life Ambassador and a Christmas gift, we are
sure he will be delighted about.

By the way, the 6th World Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation
will be taking place in New Delhi, India, at the end of November.
Another reason to dedicate a rose in Alex's honor this month!

We hope that fans from all over the world will join us in dedicating a
rose to Alex as a Christmas gift. One rose dedication costs 30
Dollars. There is also an option for you to send a card about your
dedication to Alex's business address. The Donate Life Float website
will send you a digital certificate within 1 - 2 weeks (please make
sure your email address is entered correctly!).

From November 1 until November 28, we will be collecting the names of
everyone who participates. If you are the member of a fan group,
please also tell us the name of the group. If you split the cost of a
rose dedication with other fans, please let us know the names of the
other fans as well.

At the end of November or early December, Sabine will write another
article containing the names of everyone who participated. This
article will be sent to Tenaya Wallace at Donate Life Hollywood.

We can't guarantee that Alex will express his appreciation again in
the form of a Thank You note, but we will try our best to let Alex
know about the support from his fans.

In the screenshot are the instructions in English, German, French and
Spanish about how to fill out the order form for ONE rose dedication.

Here is the link to the order form for rose dedications:

(click the image to enlarge it)



If you want to participate, please dedicate your rose to Alex by
November 28, 2010.

The Donate Life Float website form is already set up for the amount of
30 Dollars, you DO NOT have to type in an amount!

Please do not send cash! The Donate Life Float website requires your
email address to send you the confirmation and the digital certificate
for your rose dedication.

Please take your time, making extra sure that all the information you
provide is correct, in order to receive the confirmation and digital
certificate for your rose dedication. Click the Submit Button only
once.

Please send your names and the names of your fan groups to Sabine's
email address: sabine.atkins@gmail.com

If you need help with filling out the form or have questions, please
contact Sabine at sabine.atkins@gmail.com

Thank you! Vielen Dank! Muchas Gracias! Merci Beaucoup! Grazie! Obrigado!

I think this is a wonderful idea, and I'm going to donate now. So often we send gifts or cards to Alex for his birthday or Christmas, and who knows if he ever actually gets and uses them? I think he would love this idea, and it will be doing a lot of good for Donate Life. Their float last year was beautiful and won an award.

Makes TOTAL sense......

I doubt any of our gifts ever got to be enjoyed, the man was just too separated from all of us to use anything.  At least this accomplishes something.

Sabine's write up for the event, including a lovely message of support the Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Donate Life received from the coordinator of the Rose dedications. Thank you to everyone who supported us, or participated.  hug

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sandra Madera, who coordinates the rose dedications for the Donate Life Rose Parade Float is very impressed:

"Who would have thought that a television show would have sparked a culture of donation across the globe? That's exactly what Alex O'Loughlin has been able to do. Even though Three Rivers is no longer in production, Alex's commitment to the cause of organ and tissue donation has inspired his fans from all over the world to raise money and dedicate roses to him on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float. It's moving to read the dedications and to realize that he has inspired his fans in this way."

This is great! Again, I think this is a wonderful way to honor Alex, and probably more meaningful than a card or gift he will probably never see. I remember with fondness too the days when we could actually send gifts are cards that got to him. Now...how much does he actually even see? Less than 1%? I'm sure most of them are sent on to different charities. I love supporting a cause so worthy and so close to his heart.
