As The World Turns

ATWT's Eric Sheffer-Stevens fans reach $20,000 mark for Doctors Without Borders!

The fans of As the World Turns, Eric Sheffer-Stevens (Reid Oliver) did it again!  They hit their new goal of raising over $20,000 for the non-profit medical organization, Doctors without Borders, less than a week after ATWT had it’s final episode!  This fantastic news now should by now come as no surprise.  It seems after each time ESS fans strived for a fundrasing goal, (to deal with their grief over losing their beloved on-screen Dr. Oliver), they get it, and then set new heights for themselves.  It has been an incredible and thoughtful way of honoring their favorite actor.

Eric Sheffer-Stevens himself gave kudos to the group  on their accomplishment, and passed along this message to them:  “I’m amazed by and extremely grateful for this movement to raise money for Doctors without Borders. The fact that the initial goal was surpassed in such a brief time, and the amended goal accomplished in an equally brief time, is a testament to the strength and generosity and good spirit of this group working together. I know that the point of the movement was to work together to channel collective energies and emotions for a good cause at the end of this chapter, and I’m humbled and moved that it was done in my name. My very best wishes to all. Eric Sheffer Stevens”

On-Air On-Soaps says, “Way cool!”  And, you still have time now if you are interested in donating to the charity in Eric’s name by clicking on the hyperlink above for Doctors without Borders.

Michael, thanks for helping us get the word out to more fans than those we had access too. I feel really blessed to be a part of this group and accomplishing something that is so beneficial to a worthy organization. On another note.. our next project isn’t a charity, but we are trying to get the word out about Parrish Hurley’s new project. Parrish was part of the cast in Vermont Shakespeare Theater’s production of Much Ado About Nothing along with Eric Sheffer-Stevens. Parrish is very talented and he wrote the script for this pilot. Not safe for work, but… Read more »

Thank you Michael for helping us getting & keeping the word out about the DWB fundraiser we were involved in for ESS. It’s because of you keeping it front & center that we were able to reach more fans than were on facebook where we started it.
Alot more people will be helped following natural disasters because of this & the page will be open until August 2011 so if you haven’t donated yet you still can.
You definitely need to check out Parrish Hurley’s new project The 718, it is really good.

Thank you again Michael for staying on top of this and posting this wonderful news. I am so proud to be a part of this amazing fan base. It makes me feel really good to know that we have made a difference in so many lives of those less fortunate than us. And it definitely helps to ease the pain of losing the character that we have grown to love so much. I am honored to call the incredible people of this fan base my friends.

Thank you again Michael!

It has been a great time getting to know some great people and sharing the experience that was Dr. Reid Oliver. I look forward to seeing Eric’s future works, and am so proud of the work that was done in his name.

Thank you SO much, Michael, for your coverage on this campaign! It has truly made a huge difference. I am so proud of this group and all we have accomplished. First we raised $1,500 for the Vermont Shakespeare Company in Eric’s name in about a week’s time [and after some chaos concerning where to donate and how.. goodness], now we’ve surpassed our second goal at $20,000 for Doctors Without Boarders… it’s just amazing to me. This is a passion and giving group of people to say the very least. This fandom is such a beautiful place made up of equally… Read more »
