  1. The Ebay auction of the autographed Gerry Butler items netted a total of $1,519.02. Thank you to all who participated!

    This total was divided equally three ways, one-third to The Shade Tree, one-third to Angels of East Africa, and one-third retained by Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation. Checks are being mailed today, each in the amount of $506.34, to The Shade Tree and Angels of East Africa.

    Thanks to your support and generosity, along with Gerry's, in this year of 2013 we have been able to donate the following monetary gifts:

    The Shade Tree - $5,862.16

    Angels of East Africa - $7,040.97

    This is a total of $12,903.13.

    To all the generous donors, thank you! You have outdone yourselves once again. To Gerry, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity in donating and autographing the items for us to auction. Rising Phoenix CF appreciates all of you and thanks you with humble hearts. We ask for your continued prayers and support as we move onward in our charitable endeavors!

  2. On behalf of RIsing Phoenix Charitable Foundation, its officers and volunteers, I am happy to announce the net proceeds from the funds raised during the 8th Annual Gerard Butler Fan Convention and Charity Gala in Las Vegas, Nevada.


    $6,534.63 has been remitted to Angels of East Africa

    and *$5,355.82 has been remitted to The Shade Tree

    THANK YOU, all of you, from the bottom of our hearts for your extremely generous contributions and for your continued support of Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation and the charities it supports!

    (*$346.89 of the $5,355.82 represents the net proceeds from the Ebay auction of the Beowulf 'britches' from March)

  3. Congratulations, Stuart! I got all teary-eyed again over your story and the video!

    Thanks to your Laura for helping get all that together, and Holly and Dayna for their efforts, too!

    We were so hoping to get you there in "pairson" but understand completely about not being able to attend this year.

    Yes, how awesome that Gerry was able to give you a shout out in the video! Congrats, again, it is well deserved!

    Hugs and love,


  4. AH! Real life! It looks like the GALS have been making a really good dent in some charities! That is amazing!

    I haven't been on a board or anything in so long, I've forgotten how to act, I'm sure it will come back to me, though. I hope Song Bird logs on today! I miss her :wuv:

    ha ha ha!! Yep, I'm still around!!! Wow, long time no hear!! How the heck are you girlfriend?! I've missed you too! I need to get up to Nashville and have dinner with you sometime soon.

    We have a LOT of catching up to do!!



  5. I think we have given sufficient time to get any misdirected donations to the right place.

    I am pleased to tell you that a check from GALS Charitable Foundation in the amount of $520 has been mailed to The Shade Tree Shelter!

    Thank you all, once again, for your generous contributions!!!!!

    A gift of thanks and appreciation will be sent to SUSAN GIBSON.

    Once again, a huge thank you to all who donated on behalf of Gerry's birthday. I feel it's safe to say that he would be touched to know that this amount was raised and "paid forward". :)




    It appears that I screwed up the donation address to paypal!

    It is 'donation@galscharities.com'

    (donation, not donations)

    I am SOOO SORRY!!! If any of you paid to the incorrect address, please check your emails and see if you have a refund email from Paypal.

    And then, PLEASE try your transaction again, to donation@galscharities.com.

    Again, my apologies!!



  7. Well said Cheryl. I know that it is a tough time of the year in ANY year....but in this economy it is even tougher.... yet if we all just donated a little it could help a lot!




    Only a few more hours left!!!! 10 bucks to get the opportunity to own one of the 'thank you' gifts is well worth it, in my opinion!



  8. Want to give Gerry a gift for his birthday, but not sure what or how?

    Why not satisfy that urge to gift Gerry by making a donation to GALS Charitable Foundation?

    GALS Charitable Foundation is collecting donations to Celebrate Gerry's 42nd Birthday!

    The fun starts now and runs through the end of November!

    100% of all sums collected (after the electronic transaction fee)

    to be given directly to The Shade Tree.

    You can make your donations by clicking on the GCF link (above) and select "Paypal" button to donate.

    Or go through your Paypal account to: donation@galscharities.com

    (Please reference ONLY Gerry's Birthday in the payment memo section.)

    After all donations are collected, ONE generous contributor (making a donation of at least $10.00) will be randomly selected to receive a "thank you gift."

    Said thank you gift may include a beautiful 8 x 10 glossy print of Gerry, mug or tote bag!
