HAPPY NEW YEAR!

By on 1-04-2010 in Blog

I hope that twenty-ten brings you all you could ever want. 2009 was a very special year for me. It was a  year filled with love, friendship, laughter, and inspiration.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone, from the bottom of my heart, for making my Birthday charity: water campaign such a huge success. Together, and in just 22 days, we raised $92, 568, bringing safe drinking water to 4,628 people, 928 families, and 19 communities!

Words cannot express how overwhelmed I am by this achievement. Please just know that my heart is smiling as I write this.

When I started this campaign my original goal was to raise $25,000. Through your generosity and compassion we crushed that goal. And while this achievement is so very appreciated and fills me with pride, there is still much work yet to be done to ensure that people in developing nations, have the opportunity to live healthy, productive lives with access to safe drinking water.

My hope is that our achievement doesn’t stop here. My hope is that you will be inspired to start your own charity: water campaign. You can give up your Birthday. You can run a marathon. You can give up a Holiday. Or… you can start a campaign… just because.

One person can affect the lives of many.

Thank you, my twitter warriors that tenaciously spread the word. Thank you, all the anonymous donors. And thank you:

  4. Great job, Alyssa.

    I’m going to give up my birthday for this cause as well.

    I usually don’t get any presents, not even from my parents, so this way people will *have* to give something.

    Ha!

    So really? The joke’s on them!

    Thank you for inspiring me to conspire against my friends. In the end, the charity wins.

    Happy New Year.

  5. I thank you for bringing this to everyone’s attention!! By you doing that, gave folks a chance to help. You have a lot of gr8 followers! But I praise you for leading the way!!! The Father will surely bless you for this!! Always will admire you!!

  6. You are very welcome, Happy New Year to you and your family. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to be part of something so much bigger than ourselves. I am sure your example will spark other great deeds. I know Kirstie Alley will be doing her second Aquathon in May and I am going to be part of that again. We raised enough for 2 or 3 pumps with the first one and should be able to bring even more fresh water this year.
    So important to have clean water and yet for us, something we don’t have to think about in our lives.

    Bless you!
    Teeco71 (Tommy)

  16. What an awesome job…. congratulations! Also, I really enjoy your tweets!

  17. Hi Alyssa,
    First of all I wish you a great new year, lots of love, happiness, luck and health for you and your loved ones. Then I want to mention that this all happened thanks to you, taking the lead in such a great cause. Every little bit helped to reach this. I admire you, you are such a great, beautiful, smart and careful woman, really an example to look up to for all of us…

    Big hugs.

  18. The Beveridge family started a tradition several years ago of not buying Christmas presents for family members other than young children. Instead each family spends the money to help someone. Things we have done in the past include purchasing playground equipment after hurricane Rita, getting computers for an adoption agency that couldn’t afford them, donating winter coats and boots for local school children, making a rental trailer electrically safe for the small children living in it, donating a water buffalo for a family in Africa, donating hair to Locks of Love, purchasing small wood working tools for a community college and yearly doing “surprise Santa” (giving Christmas to a family who otherwise would not have one) to list a few. We really enjoy sharing on Christmas want we did to help others less fortunate than us.

    Benjamin Franklin said “A good conscience is a continual Christmas.” To me this means Christmas giving is something that should be done year round. I have opened myself up to looking for opportunities that may present themselves. Some of the opportunities are as simple as helping someone who is short on funds buy groceries for their family or donating items you no longer need to an animal shelter for their yard sale. It is amazing to see how a small act of giving grows and grows.

  19. I was my honor to be able to help if even in a small way, thanks for making this possible and for been such and inspiration to me!

  20. Alyssa – You have entertained me throught the years – but this brought tears to my eyes – a celebrity would appreciate so much what we all did together for your birthday gift by helping others – I am proud to be part of this moment – you lifted my spirits – you not only love people but animals too – you mentioned something in one of your twitters – you said the most important thing you can do for yourself – is take care of yourself – and lady I will heed your advice- God Bless – Carrie Walker

  21. “One whisper added to 1,000 others becomes a roar of discontent.” J Mcnaught

  22. I had tears in my eyes as read this and scrolled down the HUGE list of amazing people not to mention anonymous! Honored to be a part of it! Anything can happen if we let it and this is an acheivement I will never forget. Thank you Alyssa and everybody else who donated too. You inspire me everyday! Love and hugs!

    Laura. xoxox

  23. Oh my, that’s some list you got there, I see what you have been doing all over Christmas, must of taken ages. xD

  24. This campaign has been a huge success and im very very proud of being part of this ENORMOUS list! We can always make a difference when we all gather for such a beautiful cause.
    Alyssa, i want to thank you for bringing me the opportunity of helping people and changing lives, you’re truly an inspiration and an amazing person!
    Thank you everybody for donating, you guys rock!
    As Wiston Chuchill said”We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give”.

  25. Dear Lyssa,
    I think you were a gift from God to us and you have proven him well. With all the good and kind work it is true God Bless You Very Much.

    Love, Steve

    God bless.

  31. Hello Alyssa Milano

  33. Imagine a world where the simplest of needs were available to all. Where indifference and petty disputes are set aside, and humanity becomes truly united. You have taken a great stride in this direction, and so shines a good deed in a weary world. It may be true that the overwhelming success is due, in large part to your prestige, still, you really are a beautiful and amazing woman. May others follow your golden example.

  34. LOL- thanks for the mention in that long and wonderful list, thanks for the thanks, and thank you for the inspiration.

  35. Dear Alyssa!

    I am writing from Europe, from a small country, from Hungary. My name is Pali. (sorry but i don’t speak so good english).
    It is a wonderful thing, what you did for the water in the world, and that you helped other people and other countries. Some parts of Hungary we have problems with the drinking water, too. Our country is not as poor as many countries in Africa, but the quality of drinking water doesn’t reach the minimal limit value of the European Union in some regions of Hungary.
    So thank you for your water campaign, its a very great and important thing! And thank you for your films and for your series. Charmed is my favorite series, and you were/are the best in Charmed. You often helped me with your films, and with charmed when I had problems, (I have many problems in my life, but I don’t want to bore you with this…)
    You are a very good person and a beautiful angel, and stay as you are, the world needs you!

    Thanks for everything:

    Pali
    from Hungary

    Thank you for your generous donation to the Haiti relief cause.

    Your financial gesture is very appreciated by not only the disaster victims, but all of us who share the deepest heartache for the people of Haiti.

    It is inspiring to be reminded of people like you and all who have donated.

    My sincerest “Thank You” to you and everyone who reads this message and has donated.

    Chief Mike
    Dewey (OK.) Police Department

  47. Of all the websites that could come up when one Googles one’s name, I can’t think of many I’d be more honored to come up on. Thanks SO much Alyssa – not only for me, but for all those people you helped with this project.

    What a long list – each one of those people took the time and effort and money to show that they appreciate what you care about. I’m so glad to see that you care about such valuable things.

  48. Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year 2010, Alyssa. Have a Great Year! Have a Great Decade!

    LETS GO METS in 2010!!!
    LETS GO JETS IN 2010!!!
    LETS GO ISLANDERS IN 2010!!!

  49. hola soy jose esactamente not where this written and almost no English just want to say you’re a girl and excellent post I’m from mexico I hope to get in touch then luck in everything you do

  50. Доброй ночи или доброго дня, Алиса!
    Честно скажу, я смотрела Зачарованных периодически в течение 4х лет. Не понимаю что именно меня притягивает. Однозначно, великолепная игра актеров, особенно Ваша, Холли и Шенон с Роуз, может то, как вы играете сестер, как показали отношения, чувства. Реально сериал похож на жизнь. За исключением магии. Спасибо!
    У Вас талант!

  51. This will be your year; for love, work, and happiness

  52. This acknowledgement is so much. Too often this isn’t the case, not that it should make a difference in whether or not help is offered but I find this genuine and beautiful. People are so busy this goes undone and from someone is this position… I thank you Alyssa, you are a kind person. This was a wonderful campaign and a wonderful idea. Thank you. Please be well

    You’re a great person and I wish you all the best.
    I can keep going with keep you complements, but I think everyone knows who you are and what you do.

  63. Hello, Alyssa!!!
    My name is Catherine…I’ve already written…
    I want to congratulate you on the excellent international women’s day…
    With a small delay…=)

    “All harmony, all marvel, she,
    Above the world and passionless:
    She rests serene shamefastedly
    In her triumphant loveliness;
    She looks around her left and right:
    She has no rival and no peer;
    The beauties of our pallid sphere
    Have vanished in her blinding light.”

    You beautiful woman…You are doing a lot of good deeds…
    I sincerely glad that in our a cruel time is people, who can sympathize and help others…=)

    Love,
    Catherine.

  65. Alyssa,
    I just wanted to thank you for sharing your birthday with me and for letting me be a small part of it! You are a beautiful person with an amazing heart! I wish there were more people like you in the world! I know our part is not over so I am going to continue to make a difference, small or big, every day in every way that I can. We all need to start giving a little and helping one another, not abusing or terrorizing each other, or sitting idly by watching others suffer. We need to make this world a safer and healthier place all the way around!

    Thank you for being you!

    Peace, Happiness &
    Love Always,
    Josie xo

  66. please respond! im goin 2 write your real adress

  67. Hello Alyssa, I started watching you on TV series like “Who’s The Boss” and “Charmed”. and I think you are an amazing Actress as well as an amazing Person, I’m glad that I found you on twitter

  68. WOW! I am writing on Aylssa Milano’s blog! I love Charmed! It is my favorite show! I havent seen them all and I’ve only been watching it for 2 years! I love Pheobe! I want to write in a paper someday! Hope ur enjoy this year!

  69. Marry me. Seriously. lol You have been my only dream girl for my whole life. I know you get that a lot but I mean it. To look at you takes my breath away. I know I won’t get a response and if I did I doubt it would really be you. I don’t even know why I’m writing this. I guess I’m an endless dreamer that wishes the impossible is tangible.

  70. I love that you believe in give water to many places with-out. Over time, wars and conflict starts over water. I’ve not really followed your charity work, because i do my own as well. It’s just so shocking to see a you doing all these things to help people and still have time for the TV shows and such. I was happy to have meant you once before when we were just children in Brooklyn, and now in a new Romantic comedy. I hope your marriage works out,after all we all deserve to be happy and happy for the ones we love and adore.

    PS: Thanks for all funny incite on women and dating (from Charmed), i use what i learned daily. Although i don’t think it works, because i’m still not married..lol..

    Your Truelove
    V.R
