Every April since 2014 Heughligans, Outlander fans, and Sam Heughan supporters have come together to celebrate Sam Heughan’s birthday in a unique and special way. This year is no exception, in fact we have even more to celebrate this month.
The administrators of Heughan’s Heughligans are happy to announce that beginning April 13th, we will kick off the 3rd annual “Dram 4 Sam” charity drive. As our way of thanking Sam Heughan for his incredible and dedicated performance as Jamie Fraser in the Starz series, Outlander, we will give him the best birthday present yet…donating to two of his chosen charities: Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (YTAS) and Bloodwise.
Here’s how it works:
From April 13th to April 30th we are asking all fans to donate the price of a “dram” to one of these charities. Maybe you’re a coffee junkie like me, or are a fan of whisky…whatever your choice of drink, we are asking you to forego it for a week (or two!) and donate the equivalent amount to charity. This may seem like a small amount, but when combined with the hundreds of other fan donations, it really adds up! Last year we raised a total of $12,862 in 17 days, but this year we’re hoping to beat that amount. Which leads us to our challenge…
As a way of celebrating the recent milestone of 20,000 members on our Facebook page, we are challenging our members to raise $20,000 ($1 for each member!). #20k420k
So, log onto one of the following sites beginning April 13th (Dram 4 Sam donations will begin being tracked that day) and be generous with your “drams!” Donations in honor of Sam’s birthday will be counted until April 30th (Sam’s birthday) at midnight PST. Minimum donation amount for both sites is $5.

Be sure to write your birthday message in the comment box on your donation form and label it #Dram4Sam , #D4S or #20k420k. Look for more reminders and blogs in the coming weeks and make sure you join our Dram 4 Sam event page on Facebook to show your support. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR DRAM 4 SAM EVENT ON FACEBOOK
