We've Heard From Aunt Dahlia!!

As most of you know, the idea for the binders for the LOCI actors was suggested by Aunt Dahlia. You can imagine our joy when we received a lovely e-mail from her congratulating us on the success of our project! Check it out below!

"Oh. My. Gosh.

First I'll start with the binders themselves. Wow! They are wonderful!! The time people took in creating their letters is so amazing. And the care Susan and the rest of you gave the letters and binders is just so touching. I'm amazed by it all. The cross-stitches, the evidence sheets, the goodies you put in all 3 binders, just fabulous! I loved seeing Rodgers' photo next to Antje's beautiful opera tickets! It was so much fun to witness everyone's creativity and to see the project come to its fruition. THANK YOU so much to Susan for taking the time to snap photos of the contents and to Hannah for posting them online.

Next up, the letter. First of all, let me just say how extremely ecstatic I am to know that the actors actually received their gifts. I know some contributors were worried they might not ever even get to the actors. I'm so glad for everyone's sakes (especially to "the crew") that we know they were received and most of all, appreciated. He wrote a wonderful letter, even taking the time to let us know Vincent and Kathryn would be delighted too (just in case we were never to hear from them). It's fun to read the trivia about him being the one to propose the Ross/Rodgers relationship. Again, I just love that letter he wrote.

I can't believe he sent you Ross's Major Case button!!! That is amazingly wonderful. Every time you watch a Ross episode you will see it! I think you 5 ladies need to make it The Sisterhood of the Traveling Major Case Button!

And last but certainly not least . . . what?! Susan delivered the binder to Vincent in person?! Thank you to Susan for writing the account of her evening out for all to enjoy. What a night! I'm so glad she was able to get it to him and that she and her patient spouse were rewarded with a meeting (and a kiss for Susan as the cherry on top!). It is satisfying to know he received it and loved it (how could he not?!). Thanks for the photos too. I see some genuine smiles on his face and being a fellow lefty I always liked watching Goren write on the show and I love the photos where he's signing the photos. All I can say is wow. Wow!!

So again, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your hard work and your creativity. You created something great! Stand up and take your bows, ladies, I'm giving you a standing ovation over here.

Take care ladies and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Best wishes to you all,

All my thanks,

Aunt Dahlia "

Thank YOU, Aunt Dahlia, for a great idea. We loved it, went with it, and we are SO glad we did!!

We've Heard From Eric Bogosian !!!

Yes, it’s true! Eric Bogosian was kind enough to acknowledge receipt of his binder with a lovely thank you letter and some exciting gifts for the binder crew! Check out his letter below!!

Here’s an example of one of the “call sheets”...

And a picture of the sweatshirt he sent us.

Needless to say, we are thrilled with his response! It isn’t often a star will take the time to recognize and thank his fans. What a kind and gracious man!

Thank you, Mr. Bogosian !!!

Once again, we’d like to express our gratitude to all of you letter writers, artists, and donors who contributed to the binders. Your participation, donations, and encouragement made it all happen! Thank you!
