LAUREL HOLLOMAN FANS DONATING TO SAY “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”
May 1, 2009

Never mind that the countdown to Laurel Holloman’s May 23rd 2009 birthday started on the (now defunct) Our Chart TeeLu Threads the day after 2008’s event (with some incredible artwork and photos that defy you to keep certain parts of the anatomy – which will remain un-named here – 🙂 – dry)…Devoted fans of The L Word actress are ramping up again to do another fundraising drive to help  Ms. Holloman’s favored charity, Doctors Without Borders. (see prior post: https://msqueer.wordpress.com/2008/11/24/the-birthday-gift-that-keeps-on-giving/)

In a remarkable show of what can be accomplished by online social networking, message board and chat communities, fans of Laurel Holloman have already raised $22,000 for the humanitarian Doctors Without Borders.

This year, to encourage all who contribute whatever amount,  manager of the official LaurelHollomanOnline.com, Angela K. has posted this announcement:

“the site is donating a number of signed photographs including: 1 photograph of Laurel with Jennifer Beals signed by both; 1 photograph of Laurel with Rachel Shelley signed by both; 1 signed photograph of Laurel; 1 signed photograph of Rachel Shelley; 1 L Word CD signed by Kate Moennig. Everybody who donates during April, May and June, however big or small the donation, will be entered into a draw for the above prizes. Please give to this very worthwhile charity, and wish Laurel a happy birthday.”

Organizers are requesting that supportive fans help to spread the word on message boards and relevant websites. Secured donation can be made at:

The Birthday Gift That Keeps On Giving! Laurel Holloman Fans Rock!
November 24, 2008

It all started with a handful of dedicated Laurel Holloman (actress portraying Tina Kennard in The L Word) fans wanting to show their appreciation and admiration for her off-camera work in support of humanitarian causes. So they got together and started an online campaign to donate $10,000 to Doctors Without Borders, one of Laurel’s chosen charities.

Word spread like wildfire through chat rooms, electronic bulletin boards, message boards and “threads” on TLW and ShowTime websites as well as others. The goal of $10,000 was quickly surpassed and by the time Laurel’s birthday came around, there had been better than $14,000 raised.

Contributions continued to come in from all over the world, and by early fall some of the organizers sent the word out to ask about a holiday “push.”  This would be an especially significant gift in that The L Word will be airing its final season of first-run shows starting this January, 2009.  The response was again overwhelming. In the past few days, generous fans topped the $20,000 mark at the official donation site

TLW Laurel Fans Still Supporting Doctors Without Borders
August 5, 2008

Here’s a video made by one of the regulars on the Our Chart thread that was originated to create “Project Laurel” which began with honoring actress Laurel Hollowman (see post below) of The L Word with a birthday gift to her chosen charity, Doctors Without Borders.

An extraordinary effort through numerous online chat rooms and message boards, and fan threads on Our Chart,  raised $14,000 in less than 60 days, and the figure is still growing as the next phase of “Project Laurel” has taken fundraising efforts into the work place with people collecting at their offices and businesses and sending those contributions to Doctors Without Border through the http://www.firstgiving.com/laurelhollomanonline charity site.  To date the figure has just surpassed $18,000!

More projects are underway, including tables at local fairs and events staffed by volunteers who want to see the gift in honor or their favorite actress continue. Now that’s Fan Power!

Thank you, Hereden for this touching and heart-stirring creation! -MsQueer
