Can you believe how fast things are going? It's already April! This, of course, means that Georgie's 18th birthday is just less 4 months away!
And just like last year, we are putting together a Birthday Project. Last year we did a scrapbook with letters, graphics and quotes that you all sent in, and it became an amazing success! The scrapbook looked great, and as you remember, we got a Thank-You letter from Georgie.
This year is going to be a little different though, I really don't have the time to make a scrapbook like that again (and keep in mind that my friends actually help that time), so we are going to do something a little smaller.
The first part of the project is that we are going to make a video that consists entirely of smaller videos that you make. You can use any form of video editing program (everything from Windows Movie Maker to Sony Vegas Pro), it's up to you if you want to make a slideshow (only pictures and music) or a music video (clips & pictures from interviews and movie together with music). You are allowed to choose any song that you want, you have to have a song (and it doesn't matter is someone has used the same song), and you are allowed to watermark your video if you want. You all will be credited in the end of the video, either with our real name or an alias (that's also up to you).
The video can not be over 2 minutes, so you have to cut the song down. If there's anything you are wondering about this, feel free to contact us!
The second part is that we are going to make a birthday card, similar to the one we sent Kara Hayward on her birthday. For that we will need pictures of Georgie, so we want you to send us your favourite picture of Georgie (you can only send one!). Just send us the picture through any way that works for you, you can link it here in a comment or send it through Twitter/Facebook. Once again; remember that you can only send one!
The third part is not something you can help with. Last year we received some generous donations from a few Georgie-fans, it was meant to be used in a Christmas Project, but after discussing it we came to the conclusion that we will not be doing any Christmas Projects. So we are using the money now instead. We have ordered a custom made sterling silver necklace with Georgie initials (GH), I just talked to my friend who ordered it and she said it was suppose to be ready in 2-3 weeks, we will post a picture when it has arrived.
I hope you will take part in this special project for Georgie (she is turning 18 after all). If you are wondering about anything, don't be afraid of contacting us, leave a comment or check our Contact page for other ways to reach us.
