it's a wrap!

With great satisfaction it's time to bring Peace. Love. Cupcakes. to a close. For those who just found their way here and wish to contribute to a cause in David's name please go to Angels for a Cause. They are in the midst of a campaign to raise funds to sponsor a plane taking medical supplies to Haiti. They are asking for a $10 donation...I'm in!!!

I'd like to personally thank julee our very real, volunteer "virtual cupcake" accountant who graciously tallied and logged approximately 200 entries. julee, you heard your support team cheering you on from the sidelines didn't you? Please visit her "Prayer of the Haitian Children" post on her blog. I'd also like to call attention to an article beckyFOD wrote that gives you an idea of what 5,000 virtual cupcake dollars can buy. Check it out.
In closing I'd like to share a little something I wrote for David a very long time ago. It kind of sums up how I feel about the guy and what he means to me.

dear David,
whenever you sing, or thank a fan, or refuse to sign a body part inside the box, or an interviewer tries to trip you up and get you to say something bad about someone and you don't, God smiles, knowing he gave the gift of voice and song to the right person.

So that's how PEACE. LOVE. CUPCAKES. was born. A few emails, tweets and DMs later news went out to various fan sites. Time lapse from Jim's initial tweet about David singing backstage to Becky's when we were off and running....34 minutes!!! By Sunday pm we had over $2,000 donated in the names of our beloved jambajim and DavidArchie.


dear jambajim,

please accept this as a token of appreciation from David's sometimes goofy, always loving and ridiculously generous fans everywhere.


(now you know what David has to put up with, LOL!)

xoxoxo,
THE @DavidArchie FANS

julee note: To David's fans; Yesterday was one of the most joyous days I have had in Archu-land and it has nothing to do with David. Although the donations are in his name, this little spur of the moment project epitomized to me what we have become - a group of like minded people whose generosity and love know no bounds. This is just one of the many ways my life has been enriched because I am a fan of David Archuleta and I consider that to be a privilege. Thank you so much! You make my life happy!

becky note: Sometimes the spontaneous ideas that come from the heart are the most successful, fun and meaningful. David's good works and Jim's kindness paired with the telethon really inspired everyone to give just a bit more for those suffering in Haiti.

janey note: once again the most awsomEage people in the universe came together and made me proud to call myself a fan of David's. thank you EVERYYYone for an incredible day!!! and i'd like to give a one-armed archuhug to @jambajim for showing solidarity to the cause with his cupcake avi!

deb note: This "campaign" started out as a fun way for @DavidArchie fans to thank Jim for all his kind ArchSupport. But our collective compassion for the plight of the people of Haiti caused it to snowball into something much more. Thank you to everyone who so generously donated ... and sweated over a hot virtual oven.
