This September marks a momentous milestone for our favorite leading lady Rose McGowan – her 40th birthday!
We feel that for this special birthday, Rose deserves an extra-special gift to mark the occasion. Here at Rose-McGwan.com, we will be honoring Rose by raising funds for a cause very close to her heart and by compiling a unique booklet consisting of your fan art and birthday messages. Please read on for details on how to contribute!
After having tragically lost her father, artist Daniel McGowan, to Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2008, Rose has been working tirelessly to raise global awareness about the debilitating disease. As an Ambassador for The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis (CPF) and the Chair of the Daughters of PF, Rose’s personal mission has been to inform as many people as possible about the symptoms of the disease, raising awareness in an effort to eventually find a cure.
We at Rose-McGowan.com are working together with the CPF to raise funds in Rose’s honor, as a birthday gift for her this year. With Rose having positively affected so many peoples’ lives throughout the world, let’s take this opportunity to give something back this year!
You may donate through our FirstGiving fundraising page. Please donate any funds you can, large or small, and we can all work together to truly make this a birthday to remember!
Fan Art & Appreciation Booklet
We’ve also decided to compile a unique Fan Art & Appreciation booklet as a souvenir for Rose from the staff and visitors of Rose-McGowan.com, to accompany your donations to the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis. To get an idea of this, you can read up and view photos of our 2009 birthday scrapbook, which was a great success.
What we’re needing from you, is to email us some of your drawings and artworks with an accompanying brief description of each one, why you did the artwork and how, as well as a brief birthday message to Rose herself to go along with the donations to CPF.
Artworks can obviously feature Rose; perhaps drawings of her Bostons (and Sasquatch!); maybe even something sentimental that Rose herself is a fan of – we all know she has a penchant for Old Hollywood stars – just an idea! So send along a birthday message/poem, maybe even a photograph of yourself with some of your Rose memorabilia – whatever you think she will appreciate, so she knows just how much respect, love and support we have for her and her work!
All entries must include your name, and where you are from as these will be included in the booklet as well.
The book will be delivered to Rose in September, so rest-assured that the lady herself will get to see all of your beautiful artworks and messages.
A list of those who have donated will be given pride of place at the very beginning of the booklet, so Rose will see exactly who has participated in the donation drive. If you donated and are on Twitter, you may include your Twitter handle as well.
Please send along all artwork and accompanying messages to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: ROSE-McGOWAN.COM BIRTHDAY BOOK. The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2013!
Remember to be creative and have fun!
Now, let’s show Rose that we really mean HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY!
