Loving Fans Donate to Actress’ Favorite Charity
April 28, 2008


Fans of actress Laurel Holloman, who has starred in 5 seasons of  Showtime’s The L Word, are working on a unique birthday gift to present to her. Through numerous online chat rooms and message boards, fans of the actress are working together to “present”  Ms. Holloman with a substantial donation to her favorite charity, Doctors Without Borders. Donations are fast closing in on the $6,000 mark. Each time a target (set in $2000 increments) is reached, a new target is set at $2,000 more.


Donation site is


Doctors Without Borders Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural and man-made disasters, and exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries. A private, nonprofit organization, Doctors Without Borders was founded in 1971 as the first non-governmental organization to both provide emergency medical assistance and bear witness publicly to the plight of people it assists.


Online donors can leave a message along with their contribution if they wish. Organizers of this fundraising drive hope to see the donations continue to come in after the actress’ birthday on March 23rd, but are definitely excited about this generous way of letting their favorite performer know how she has impacted their lives through her work while benefitting the lives of others. -MsQueer
