Facing the Atlantic is the most thrilling fundraiser we have done so far. It was exciting to follow the journey of Bertie and James, with all its ups and downs and we couldn’t have been happier when they set foot on Barbados after 63 days on the Atlantic Ocean.
The fan support for this fundraiser was just amazing and we can’t thank you all enough for that. The combined activities of AllStephenMoyer, The Vault and SimplyMoyer raised a total amount of approx. $21,000.
All the support from the fans for Facing the Atlantic has not gone unnoticed by Stephen Moyer either.
We are very happy to share the video that Stephen made with his “mate” Bertie Portal sending a personal message for all the fans who participated in the fundraiser and showed their support.
A Special Note: Steve wanted us to tell you all that he has been trying to send this video to us for weeks now and has been valiant in his perseverance with many tries. He was finally successful today. All this done while acting in and directing episode 8 of True Blood. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that he is thinking of his fans even when so busy in his own life.
Thanks so much for this, Steve (and Bertie). As always….. you’re the best!
We’d like to share with you part of the email exchange we had with Stephen about the video and the fundraising:
finally – FINALLY – I have had to reload the whole bloody thing.
can’t thank you guys enough for everything you and everyone on your respective websites have managed to raise…
Bert is gobsmacked by the level of commitment you put in…
I’m at work, and have just spent the entire last hour and a half trying to load this again, so now I’m off.
many thanks again
see you all soon
There is a glitch in the middle of the video where we were discussing how much money you lot had raised which I didn’t realise hadn’t recorded until I was back in the US… bloody annoying
