Most Birthday Wishes From Verified Celebrities On Twitter

United States Mr. S.

Like

Stamford, Connecticut, United States / July 14, 2011

Mr. S. started following more than 100 celebrities on Twitter, all of whom have verified accounts. He sent each one a tweet on his July 14th birthday, requesting a birthday wish.

Mr. S. mentioned in an attached link that for each wish he received he would donate $2.00 to the Norwalk Public Library in Connecticut. Eleven verified celebrities responded to his request in 24 hours. Instead of donating $22, Mr. S. kindly donated $200.

    I've only sought out birthday wishes from "verified" accounts of individuals - otherwise, corporations would use this for shameless self-promotion purposes. Besides, getting a personalized birthday wish from Kristin Davis means a lot more (at least to me) than a generic birthday wish from Pepsi. (And while it's not an exact science, I'd think that anyone with a verified account from Twitter must be well-known enough that he/she qualifies to be a celebrity.

    My big thanks go out to Record Setter for helping with this, as well as all the celebrities who've written to me both this year and last year. Also, I'd like to thank Robin Roberts of ABC News, who re-tweeted my birthday-wish request to her followers. If you'd like to help directly, you can send a check made out to Norwalk Public Library, to 1 Belden Avenue, Norwalk, CT, 06850.

    (Oh, and not to brag, but I actually donated $200.
    

    Also, actress Kristin Davis was kind enough to add her birthday wish later on - and agreed to make a donation herself!)
