Tom Welling Birthday Project

 
OPERATION BIRTHDAY CARD
 
Status- Urgent!
 
 
Mission Objective: 
 
To wish Tom Welling a very happy 31st birthday, and at the same time show this talented actor a little fandom love. 
 
Mission Parameters: 
 
Well, it’s really simple. Send a birthday card. That’s it! Or maybe, a postcard with a personalized greeting. Whatever works best for you.   It’s not complicated. Make it a serious card, and write him a little note. Or find a funny card, and just sign your name.  Make some SV artwork on your computer, print it out, and stick it in an envelope.  Like I said, its so simple!  It's up to you to find the best way to wish the big guy an awesome B-Day!  The address to the Smallville studio is provided at the bottom of this message. It appears that the show will be filming until almost the very end of April, but that is fast approaching.  So, we’ll need to get this mission underway with strike force like speed. 
 
Unfortunately, due to the time crunch, there’s no time to try and gather up the greetings in one place, and send it in one big package. So, it’s up to all of you to join in on the mission, and send something yourself, directly. It’s just the cost of a card/postcard, and the postage to get it from where you are to Vancouver, BC, Canada. 
 
And please, for those of you located outside of the USA and Canada, please consider joining the effort. You might have to get that mailed ASAP, but just think how cool it would be for him to get a birthday card from Australia? Or Brazil? Or Japan? Or France?
 
One request though. It would be nice if we could show that this is an organized effort. To do so, I believe all that’s required would be for all of us to include “OPERATION BIRTHDAY CARD” somewhere on the outside of your envelope. Let him know that we’re all in this together.
 
Feedback is totally welcome, and the more we can spread this message, the more mail the poor SV staff has to handle. Also, it would be really great to get an idea of how many people have decided to join us. So, if you could leave a message and let us know that you dropped something in the mail, we’d appreciate it. If you want to keep your participation anonymous, consider just sending an email or private message.
 
I think for those of us who came up with this idea, we just really wanted to do a “Big” thing for Tom’s birthday, just this once. I know other actors on the show have had their birthdays celebrated by their fans by doing charity fund drives. Which is great! But all we’re asking is for you to send a card. And somehow, I think we’d all agree that the simplicity of the gesture seems most fitting for our Mr. Welling.
 
 
Signed
 Valerie, Carol, Iliana and Pep
 
The Address for your cards:
Tom Welling

Oh, I am so on board! What a wonderful idea! And since I just bought a photo printer with my digital camera, I think I'll make something. I'm not artistic or anything, but I could certainly make a card out of a screen cap where Clark looks particularly heroic. Thanks for organizing this, guys!

Oh man, you have a squid layout! Is it a standard LJ one? What is it called? It looks so cute!
jeannev
Mar. 30th, 2008 04:31 pm (UTC)
It is one of lj's choices, and its just called "Ocean Squid". I think its a lot of fun!

So, can we count on you for a card? ;)

Tom's birthday project
Question;If you are sending a regular size B-Card from the US,do you need more than a .41 cent stamp for it to get to Canada.
jeannev
Mar. 30th, 2008 07:51 pm (UTC)
Re: Tom's birthday project
Yes. I believe a regular sized card to Canada would need .69

It's a great idea. Of course I'll send him. I'm from Greece and it would be really nice for tom to see a card from so far away. There are a lot of tom welling's fans here so i'll tell them to do the same.
thank you!
jeannev
Mar. 31st, 2008 01:45 pm (UTC)
That would be awesome [b]christina[/b]. Thanks so much! Just imagine a bunch of birthday cards coming in from Greece. How could that not make him smile.

I really appreciate the support for this project, and for Tom!

I have a question to ask
I'll send my card 2morrow. Is it the right way to say this....

I wish you to have a lot of energy to do even more things in your life and your career.

I'm not sure if it's right. I'm from Greece and my english are not PERFECT! How can I say it??
jeannev
Apr. 3rd, 2008 05:58 pm (UTC)
Re: I have a question to ask
Thats a wonderful thing to write.

I would recommend wording it this way:

"My wish for you is all the energy you'll need to accomplish the things you want in your life and your career"

But I wouldn't even change it. Saying it exactly in your own words is charming and from the heart. :)
