March 26th, 2012, 6:28pm–Rupert Grint has signed t-shirts in support for Marie Curie Cancer Care‘s Great Daffodil Appeal which helps provide nurses at home for those terminal in their final days. The t-shirts, which an extra large and medium are available, will be auctioned off on Ebay. Rupert has a bit of a family appeal for the organization as his aunt is a volunteer for them. He also had this to say about the project:
I want to do my bit and help Marie Curie raise as much money as possible so that more people can be supported by their nurses at home during their final days.
For the extra large t-shirt you can bid on it here and the medium one can be bided on here. Good luck!

UPDATE:Bliss Magazine has made a list over “Lads we loved in 2011″ – and to noone’s surprise, Rupert made the list! Here’s what they said about everyone’s favourite ginger:
We’ve always had a bit of a secret crush on the Grint, but watching him get teary at the final Harry Potter premiere made us fall in full blown love with him. He’s basically the reason we’ve been Potter obsessed for the past ten years, so we feel that 2011 is the year to finally confess our love for our fave ginger…WE LOVE YOU RUPERT GRINT!
December 15th, 2011, 10:30AM– Rupert Grint makes sure to spread some Christmas joy in the name of charity.

They spent the morning with young fans and had pictures taken with them.
Earlier today, Tom Felton wrote the following on his Twitter profile: “Beautiful day in London! May even get to see my special ginger friend x”
The Friends Christmas Party does sound like a lovely and touching event. On the Great Ormon Street Hospital‘s website, it is described like a heart-warming event:
Every child will have the chance to meet Santa, give him their Christmas wish list, and take home special early Christmas treats and a gift.
As always, there will be a very special Christmas party for 1,500 patients and their families. Father Christmas will be joined by helpers and special friends, and there will be games, music, party food, dancing and much more.
Children too sick to attend the party won’t miss out, though, as Santa will visit the children in the hospital so that they know they haven’t been forgotten.
