Rupert Grint’s Birthday Wish: Donate to Teenage Cancer Trust!

Rupert Grint’s Birthday Wish: Donate to Teenage Cancer Trust!August 1st, 2012, 6:06am– There are only 24 days until Rupert Grint turns 24-years-old and this means that it is time for our annual Birthday Project. Every year, fans from around the world come together to make August 24 extra special for Rupert, and this year we have decided to do a project close to Rupert‘s heart and our own. Instead of sending Rupert a gift or a birthday card, we want you to use that money on a donation for Rupert‘s favourite charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust!

We have decided to make the entire month of August our “Teenage Cancer Trust Awareness Month” and we plan on promoting this cause on the site as well as on our Facebook, our Twitter and our Tumblr. But we cannot do this without your help – so please help us spread the word to anyone and everyone that you know. Every little bit helps, and we want this project to become a huge success!

As you all know, we had the chance to ask Rupert a few questions at the Olympic Torch Relay last Wednesday, and we took the opportunity to ask which charity was closest to his heart. You can see his response below:

We have made it easy for everyone to donate by creating a Just Giving page where all the donations go directly to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Our page can be found HERE! When you have donated you will be able to leave a Happy Birthday message for Rupert which we will pass along to him on the big day.

All you have to do now is DONATE! DONATE! DONATE!

UPDATE: We have received a statement from Teenage Cancer Trust about this Birthday Project and what the money donated will help achieve:

We are honoured that Rupert Grint and his fans have chosen to celebrate his 24th birthday by raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Every penny will make a massive difference to the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.

As the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the, we build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live. With your support we know we can achieve this.
Thank you.
