FAQ and Info
(updated 11 March 2013)
What is the purpose of this blog?
We are raising money to donate to the charity, Stand Up To Cancer, in honor of Martin Freeman. We will reach our goal by his next birthday (8 September 2013).
Who runs this blog?
We all met as part of the New Baker Street Regime - a blog for all BBC Sherlock fans.
How did you get this idea?
There was a blog dedicated to raising money for Benedict Cumberbatch’s birthday to donate to a charity, and we thought someone should do it for Martin as well.
How much are you trying to raise?
We are starting with a goal of $500.00, but hopefully we will break that record and be able to set a new one.
Who is Martin Freeman?
Martin Freeman is one of the best actors to ever walk the face of this planet. Some of his fans say he is made of jam, kittens, and rage. Others say he resembles a hedgehog. He has played Arthur Dent, John Watson, and (coming soon) Bilbo Baggins.
We love him in everything he does! He is very talented and intelligent. (You really should know who he is, he did win a BAFTA)
What charity are you donating the money to?
We have chosen the charity Stand Up To Cancer to fund cancer research. You can donate to our group using this link: [x]
We are also trying to win a Celeb Lottery Challenge for Martin and Stand Up to Cancer. Voting is done through this site: [x]
More info on both of these can be found in this post.
Are you just raising money?
There has also been talk of making Martin a “Happy Birthday” video. We might also be collaborating with another blog to send Martin pics and letters on his birthday. It’s still being planned out! Keep checking the blog for updates.
