It’s that time of the year again! Phil’s birthday is four months away so the drive is up and running. It can be found at bit.ly/PGPhil33.
DKMS and blood cancer
While we have loved supporting Make A Wish (and may again in the future), this year we are fundraising for DKMS. Their mission is to provide a matching donor for every blood cancer patient in need of a blood stem cell donation. While fundraising for this cause is super important you can also help make this happen by registering. You can request a swab kit to register as a potential blood stem cell donor on their website.
Thank you to anyone who supported the project whether it was donating, sharing or creating. We were actually in the top 1% of just giving fundraisers in June which is a fantastic result. You are all amazing!
I also want to give a massive shout out to Moody for taking the reigns this time around. You did a fantastic job.
All of the winners were chosen by entering the participants’ usernames into a random generator.
A special shout out to all the amazing phandom creators who signed up to commission fanworks in exchange for donations to the drive! Your work and participation is so valued and appreciated. And on that same note, congrats to everyone who was lucky enough to win a fanwork during our livestream with PhandomWatch!
Dan’s birthday drive is still open here so please keep donating and sharing the drive!
Again a huge thank you to everyone who participated in any way during this drive, we sincerely appreciate it.

Thank you so much to everyone who showed up to the livestream with @phandomwatch over the last 28 hours! We had a blast running it, and we raised over £900 for YoungMinds in honour of Dan over the last 28 hours! And that was with JustGiving being down for over 10 hours! Please continue donating and sharing the drive! We are 71% of the way there! bit.ly/PG-Dan28 <3

For Dan’s 28th birthday drive we want to give the phandom’s wonderful creators an opportunity to showcase their talents through commissioned fanworks by donation to Young Minds.
Creator works include:
Fiction & Prose
Illustration & Graphic Art
Fanwork related services (beta reading, britpicking, etc.)
This is a way for creators who aren’t able to donate to contribute to the drive. Creators will be able to offer one or more works over as many forms of fanworks as they want, and specify the donation amount per commission. Creators will also be able to choose how they want their works to be commissioned (as in, first come, first serve, raffle etc).
We welcome all phandom creators, and the sign-up period starts today, May 26th, and closes on June 3rd.
We have received a lovely letter and certificate from Make A Wish UK as a thank you for raising £5,600.43 for Phil’s birthday. Please have a read of the letter and thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.
