Announcing the details of this year’s “Dram 4 Sam” charity drive…
Each year, fans of Sam Heughan always ask how they can wish him a happy birthday on April 30th. Five years ago, we asked Sam how he’d best like his fans to honor him on his special day and he suggested a donation to charity would be the most appreciated. It has since become an annual event for fans to come together the last two weeks of April to support two of the UK-based charities that Sam himself has supported: Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (YTAS) and Bloodwise UK (supporting the fight against blood cancers).
From April 15-30th we will have our annual “Dram 4 Sam” charity drive. We raised over $19k last year (we’ve raised over $100k combined since we began in 2013) and we are hoping to surpass that amount this year.
Anytime between April 15-30th, fans are encouraged to donate to one or both of Sam’s chosen charities. You can donate an amount as small as $2 (the price of a soft drink) or any other amount you wish (maybe the price of a “dram” of whisky). Donations are accepted year round to both these charities via the links below, but our D4S event raises the single largest amount of money.
The links to donate can be found at the end of this post. You will need a credit card, as JustGiving is not set up for PayPal just yet.
****PLEASE BE AWARE, JustGiving is a UK-based site for donating directly to charities and when you donate via the website, it will process as a foreign transaction. IF you are based outside the UK, your bank or credit card company MAY flag the transaction thinking it is being made without your knowledge. Please contact your bank or credit card company directly PRIOR to making a donation, if you think this may be a problem. Thank you in advance for your generosity.****
