Hey you guys,
River's birthday was a month ago today, so I thought I'd give you a little update about what has been going and hopefully will continue to.

As most of you probably know, this memorial was created in memory of River on his 40th birthday on August 23rd. Helene and I stuck our heads together and wrote a little description and put up a few pictures of River on the site.

Now one month after we have received 16 donations for a total of $488.40. Our goal is to reach $1000, which we still hope to be able to do. As you can see we are only $11.60 shy of half our goal, so I hope someone will be willing to donate to reach that 'milestone'.

We now have 56 messages in the guestbook. All very sweet and caring, which warms both mine and Helene's hearts, and we couldn't be more pleased to know that so many people still care as much for River as we do ourselves.

Helene and I both contacted the administrators of a facebook group, but we were unable to get any help from them. They were not even willing to respond to our messages. This was some disappointment to us, seeing as we do not understand why they are unwilling to help us reach our goal. We believe that if they really love River as much as we do ourselves they would have been willing to help, but perhaps we are wrong about that?

I also contacted the administrator for the Brazilian fans website. I failed to receive a response, but in the many guestbook entries, I believe many Brazilian fans are mentioned, so perhaps that is them.

As Helene and I have both shared with you, we wrote letters to several people. River's friends, colleagues and family, which include Keanu Reeves, Joaquin Phoenix, Rain Phoenix and Flea. We have not received any response from any of those mentioned above and of those I did not mention we only received a response from one. This being Sue Solgot. She gave us many blessings

We hope that we will continue to have contributions from those have yet to participate in this and of course we would like to encourage you all to do just that!

Thanks everybody for making this thing for River so amazing and great

I think i will go for donating the same amount again around oct 31st, since that's a special day to remember River on.
Maybe some of you will do the same and join me to get a bit closer to the goal?!
To bad that you didn't hear from Rivers other friends and family, but still cool to get one responce. But how amazing wouldn't it have been if someone of his big celebrity friends would have answered and maybe donated a little larger amount to help us?!=)

I completely agree with, however, Helene and I just found the link for our memorial on Corey Feldman's website, so if you follow this link:
http://www.coreyfeldman.net
and scroll down a bit, you will find a note, in which he asks his fans to donate in memory of his friends and then the link for the memorial.
Our intention of contacting them was only to inform them of this memorial and knowing that he has posted this link on his site, means we accomplished that, so we are really happy about that and think that it was a really sweet thing of him to do, so the fact that we did not get a personal reply from him is quite alright.
But I agree, I too had hoped that they would donate.
I think it is a great idea if people would donate on the anniversary of his death as well. It think we should all do whatever it takes for us to reach our goal. It could be quite an accomplishment for all of us!

I just checked and it seems Corey removed since I looked, but basically he just asked his fans to donate in memory of his friend River on his 40th birthday. It was very sweet. Right now I wish I'd copied it, before it was removed. I guess I just assumed it would be there always

I have some very good news though!
We just received another donation of $100, which means that we have now raised $588.40. So nice. Thank you again to all those who made donations
