Happy Birthday Ben Browder!!!!!!


Most of us were introduced to this actor 15 years ago and are still following his career!! In the era of instant gratification and sound bites that is pretty amazing. There is still time to donate to Breast Cancer Research Foundation on the Ben Browder Birthday cause page. Your donation can be in honor of, memory of or in support of any individual you choose.

2 Days left to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation !!

 There are so many good causes out there and most of us have our favorites —- this charity was chosen to celebrate Ben’s birthday for a variety of reasons. The impact across the global fan spectrum, the personal connection (Ben’s wife had been diagnosed, doing fine at last report!), and BCRF is know for having 91% of funds raised go to the program. So give the gift of hope for a cure as the holidays near, make an end of year tax deduction, or give to make yourself feel better ( studies say giving releases feel good chemicals in the brain!) . If those reasons are too mundane how about our favorite actor is going to be 51 and pulled this off last August (thanks to @virkatjol again for the photo!)

The auctions have finished for 2013 yielding $1405.15  !!!  The overall total is $2196!!! Americans as you give thanks tomorrow make a donation in rememberance of someone, in thanks for a survivor, or in the hope for someone just diagnosed not just with breast cancer but any disease being fought. Discoveries are made continually and are shared to benefit us all!

The actor who portray’s Ben’s son in the upcoming Syfy film Dead Still posted a picture on Twitter with Ben. Another guy Joe Mex also posted this picture. The young boy posted on Facebook a quote from producer/composer Christopher Saint Booth : “Dead Still team: We have officially blown away the network with all our hard work on Dead Still. You guys rocked it as I Quote from the Network..This is the best production we have ever seen…. ”  

UPDATE—————– The Crichton Doll has arrived at his new home and winner Michelle is sharing :

The Scaper community lost a fixture last Friday. Lisa Dorman, Just Plain Lisa, passed away after a valiant struggle against cancer(s). Lisa has always been a big supporter of the birthday fundraisers, this year like many in the past she was amongst the first to donate. I, like many who attended the Farscape cons have known her for a decade or more. It is bittersweet to see her name now being “in memory of” on the honor list as people pay tribute to her. She was a member of the Nipplettes or as Ben called them , The Purple Boa Ladies, of the Farscape cons! Here is a picture of Lisa at this year’s Dragon Con —last night of which we Scapers’  posed :

TOTAL = $1632 !!!!!!!!!!

The last two auctions should bring us over the $2000 mark which still makes us pretty short of the goal we reached last year. I can only say again this research benefits us all. Other drugs and applications are discovered in the process. A twelve year old girl in Arkansas was diagnosed with a brain eating parasite of which few in the world have ever survived after receiving a breast cancer drug that had anti-parasitic properties she is back in school and is the 3rd American known to survive. So I ask you all to donate even if it is just the amount of your daily coffee or other drink of choice. It may help someone you know someday! Donate by 11 December !!!

This is a teaser of the last auction—a digital painting by the Farscape fandom’s own Spritelady and signed by Ben!

Ben fan Beth who created the doll has a fun page of adventures for the dolls (this is a public link–doesn’t require being on Facebook).

Ben started filming Dead Still this past week. As those of us who are long-time fans know he prefers not to talk much about the project until it is complete. When he mentioned it at Armageddon in Auckland the four of us sitting there were a bit stunned. Some other details are out but I am adopting Ben’s wait and see stance 🙂 In other words more later!

The charity auctions are doing well and we just passed $1000 mark. Last year’s total was $5100 so this is not an unreasonable goal. So donate your latte or beer money for a week! The fundraiser officially ends at midnight on December 11,2013. If you donated via Paypal and don’t see it on the scroll please contact me. You can also Paypal me and I will put it in via credit card with your name. The last three auctions are big ones! Monday will be Ben’s costume from Bad Kids Go to Hell (pants,undershirt,work shirt) donated by dizzy and a signed card.
