This Sunday is Ian’s Birthday! Thankfully we will be spending it with Ian at Creations…I will have the pleasure of meeting many fans and doing a Vampire Stalkers-Mystic Falls Tours Panel for all of you.
I cant wait to meet you and tell you all all about us and Mystic Falls! Another cool thing is since it is Ian’s Birthday we are offering 2 specials that will be great gifts for Ian all while giving you something cool in exchange.
As we all know Ian’s passion is his foundation. Ive noticed at many events that you guys like to bring Ian awesome gifts and we think that is so cool. Ian has stated in the past that it would mean so much if in exchange for gifts…if the fans would embrace ISF. Of course donations are always needed and mean a great deal to ISF and all of us volunteers.
The current big project for ISF is the animal sanctuary and we encourage you to head over to the ISF site and read all about it…as well as anything else that catches your eye over there.For a special surprise this weekend we will be accepting ALL the Bday cards and donations you want to bring for Ian over at the BOB table or during our panel on SUnday. Thankfully this is a great way to show your love for Ian and ISF all while celebrating his birthday too! SO instead of gifts we encourage you to make a donation (any amount is appreciateed) and drop it off with us, when you drop it off we will ask you to sign a birthday card for Ian and we will present it to him on Sunday. That way instead of tons of things going on the plane home with him…he will have 1 awesome card and hopefully a very nice donation to ISF. If you want to bring your own card with the donation that is great as well…
Now the cool thing is we are actually gonna give 2 prizes out to 2 lucky fans that donated to ISF. So its kind of like its yall’s birthday too!
1st prize is a weekend in Mystic Falls!
