UPDATE: Deborah Ann Woll’s Auction for Choroideremia Charity

June 13, 2013

True Blood Memorabilia Raises Money for Choroideremia Research Foundation:

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in Season 6 of HBO's True BloodRecently, we let all you truebies know about a charity auction that is very dear to Deborah Ann Woll (vampire Jessica Hamby in HBO’s True Blood): the Choroideremia Research Foundation.

Choroideremia is a degenerative eye disease that affects Woll’s boyfriend, E.J. Scott. While Scott currently has some sight left, the estimate is that he may only have ten years left before he is completely blind. Within that time, the pair plan to have children. This, however, has it’s own set of complications:

“If we have a boy, he won’t have the disease. If we have a daughter, she will be a carrier but most likely won’t have severe symptoms. If she has boys, there’s a 50-50 chance they’ll have it. Our children can be healthy and happy with Chm. E.J. is. Still, when I think of him not seeing our kids, as they grow…”

Scott also has a bucket list and the pair of them have been working though it:

“We did the Grand Canyon on the way to Chicago. We did Europe. He was an extra on True Blood this season, and the cast has been really supportive, donating things for us to auction off on eBay to raise money for research.”

These auctions have been very popular. With the completion of last one, Deborah was kind enough to post this video of the drawing of the winner:

So you missed out on the last fundraiser? Or you name wasn’t picked out of the hat? Well, don’t worry, because E.J. Scott and Deborah Ann Woll have another one going right now!  The following details on the auction are below:

Fans Gather for Alexander Skarsgard’s Birthday Celebration

August 24, 2009

For the past two months, Sundays at 9 p.m. ET has been an hour of celebration. The airing of a new episode of HBO’s award-wining series “True Blood,” for many fans, has become a time of agonizing anticipation each week. This week, “True Blood” fans have another reason to celebrate — the 33rd birthday of one of the series most beloved cast members.  Alexander Skarsgard who, to the delight of many fans, plays 1,000 year old  viking vampire, Eric Northman.

Alexander, a star for many years in his native Sweden, showed us his zany side in the 2001 comedy Zoolander. Recently he stared in the critically acclaimed HBO “Generation Kill” and is currently filming the remake of the 1971 classic ‘Straw Dogs.” Skarsgard has many projects on the horizon, all of which bring more and more fans to this charismatic actor.

A group of “True Blood” and Alexander Skarsgard fans have found a unique way to celebrate their idol.

Tuesday Aug. 25, 9 p.m. ET. Fans are invited to a Virtual Birthday Party.

Fans organizing the party tell us there is no fee to attend. There will be no commercials or spam associated with the event. The party is fully funded by a small group of dedicated fans. “It is just a way for us to join in the celebration of Alex’s birthday. It makes us feel closer to him,” says L. Clisto. During the event, fans will share pictures and video clips of Alex’s career along with some fan-generated videos. Party guests are encouraged to send in and share all Skarsgard related information. “We couldn’t find many celebrations for Alex’s birthday, so we decided to have our own,” organizers say.alexander_skarsgard_true_blood_tails_for_whales3

What is a “Virtual Party?” Organizers say they more or less made up the term. It is away for mutual fans to come together and sing “Happy Birthday.” The group will be connecting through a webinar where computer screens and audio will be connected.

To participate, you will need a computer with an Internet connection and a microphone. If a guest does not have a microphone, they will be able to connect their audio via telephone service.  There will be trivia contests, prizes and lots of fun. Fans have begun to send in their ideas, virtual gifts (money is no object and the sky is the limit) and birthday wishes. Guests should be prepared to sing “Happy Birthday” in English and Skarsgard’s native Swedish.

If guests are so inclined, they may offer more than a virtual gift. Alexander supports Amnesty International, which is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally-recognized human rights for all. He is also an advocate for Tails for Whalesalex-deb, an international campaign to protect whales.  Although the party organizers are not asking for a fee of any kind, they will provide guests with brief information on these charities. Guests will also be offered the  voluntary opportunity to contribute to the “Alexander Skarsgard Birthday Charity Fund

The proceeds collected will be donated to the Choroideremia Research Foundation.   The birthday charity has been arranged with the editors of   www.alexskarsgard.net.

Choroideremia Research Foundation is an international non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to find treatment and cure for Choroideremia, a rare inherited degenerative disease that causes blindness. This is a condition brought to our attention by “True Blood” cast member Deborah Ann Woll, who plays newly turned vampire, Jessica.

The party is scheduled on Skarsgard’s birthday Aug. 25. It will start at 9 p.m. ET time and run for an hour. There will be games, discussions, virtual toasting and loads of fun.  Any fan wishing to join in on the celebration and raise a glass in honor for one of their favorite actors can receive party information by sending an

RSVP e-mail to  Tru _ Blood _ Fan @ Yahoo.com

Wherever Alex is on his birthday, there will be many toasting his name. Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah!   Remember, to bring your party hats, toasting glass and favorite clip of Alex.
