MESSAGE FROM LUCY LAWLESS - 05 APRIL 2011

Here's a new message from Lucy about her birthday and the AUSXIP Charity Auction which is held in March in time for Lucy's birthday! Thanks to everyone we have raised $9600 for Starship this year! Unbelievable.

thank-you everyone for your kindness and best wishes on my birthday.
I never truly understood that the online auction was a birthday present to me. I was extremely blown away when I got it for the first time! I was quite mute.

Thank-you all (especially Mary D) who organised it. The Starship people are going to be shocked and delighted. I know that will buy some incredible piece of equipment that will help heal a child or ease suffering. You are very generous and I send warm blessings on you all from afar. ( I just took a few minutes out to pray in your direction!)

I had a lovely, lovely birthday. When work was unexpectedly postponed, I caught up with Madeleine Sami and Ladyhawke for brunch at Alleluia Cafe on K Rd and then went out to play tennis very badly with pals in Mt Eden. The rest of the day was spent with my family. My sister made the most gorgeous lemon cake I have ever seen and which we devoured over two days. Thanks, Jos!

Now I have to get back to work. on Sparty. My internet has been down so I have been trying to do research on my little iPhone. Not very good. I am so excited by the new direction for my character. Bizarre stuff! Michael Hurst and I are psyched about what we're about to do. Wish I could say what, but it would ruin the surprise.
Up and at 'em!
Lucy

MESSAGE FROM LUCY LAWLESS - 30 MARCH 2010

Hi folks,

I'm beyond stoked with the figures I was tallying last night. Beyond stoked. Here are the prelim figures for Starship & ROC Outreach Fund.

Starship Foundation
$ 11,917.74 NZD (that figure will rise with some late sales and some donations)

ROC OutReach Fund
$3,240.82 USD

Lucy sent me a message about the wonderful support for the auction.

Holy cow! My god, that is a lot of money! You can be sure that that will go right where it is vitally needed. Thank-you Friends, from the bottom of my heart!I have never worked on a show with a fanbase as giving as the XWP gang. I guess it was the nature of the show and its message that formed such a community.

I am a day wiser today. I had a wonderful birthday and I just realised that that was truly a birthday present to me! Gosh, now I feel all redfaced. I know you all work so hard for every buck you make and I never want to cajole money out of my beloved fans for any reason. I appreciate all you have done for me in my life and career and I truly ask for nothing more from you. But you make these things happen anyway.
On behalf of all my collegues at the Starship Foundation, our great love and thanks to you, dear Friends, dear Nutballs, old Pals!

Thanks to Mary, Christa, Roger and team for making it all go.
I am so touched.
Love always and everywhere,
Lucy


LETTER FROM RENEE O'CONNOR  - 13 JUNE 2009

Hello Mary!

I want to acknowledge the organization and implementation you provided for the entire charity auction, and especially for the Outreach Fund. It is an honor to be a part of it!

I hope each person who made a contribution can see how their generosity is as far reaching as Peru! Please read the letter attached from Arthur, who plans to provide all of us with updates on the school's progress. I have an inspiring friend, Chris Howard, who has the goal of eradicating poverty on the global level. I will continue to get involved with his projects around the world, as it is my desire is to see these models of communities enable themselves in an enriched sustainable way.

Again, thank you so much for contributing to the love and gratitude in my heart as well!

my best,
Renee
