Grattis på födelsedagen, Alex! Yes today is Alex’s birthday! It was a lot of fun wishing him an early Happy Birthday yesterday on the phone interview. He’s still in New York filming for “What Maisie Knew” and I’m sure he will have fun today. He is so amazing to support the LA Food Bank as his birthday cause this year! I let him know how much was raised yesterday and the total donated by his fans then was $3767! He was very thankful to the fans for helping him raise money for this wonderful cause! There is still time to donate:
This year’s Alexander Skarsgard Birthday Charity is the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. We are all aware that with the status of the economy tens of thousands of people across the country have either lost their jobs completely or have seen their hours cut back. While thousands of people look to places such as the food bank for assistance, the food bank has also suffered decreases in their donations. This year we ask only that you donate what you would have spent on a card and help us help those who need us most. If you can donate more, we are sure the food bank can put all donations to good use. As most of our followers know, we love doing our best for charity. Putting food on someone’s table, helping nourish and sustain a family for at least one meal, is a wonderful gift. As an added bonus, we (meaning Jenna) will take everyone’s name who donates and sign it on one HUGE card that we will ship to Alex for his Birthday. We can guarantee that he will see that card and it will be something he can stand in his bedroom and know that his fans not only love him, but that his fans do good things in his name.
Now for the rules: We have a team page set up on the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank website for credit card payments. Payments made here go DIRECTLY to the food bank and the site will tally all the donations so we can keep track of how we are doing. For international donors and those who prefer a Paypal option, please click on the DONATE button at the bottom of this post.
IMPORTANT: Paypal donors will need to put “Alexander Skarsgard Birthday” in the comments section so we can add those to the total manually. There is a drop down + sign that says “is this gift in honor/tribute of someone”. Paypal donors must click on that and enter “Alexander Skarsgard Birthday” . (screencap image below)
Ok Skarsfam, lets hit our goal of $20,000, save some trees, reduce Alex’s carbon footprint, give HQ a mailroom break and raise some money!!!

Please feel free to leave Alex a birthday wish in the comments section and I’ll send them to him (via his manager I don’t get to email the viking directly yet…) It was fun to hear the local radio station say Happy Birthday to Alexander Skarsgard -the dj was not the regular one and she was “the blonde vampire guy on True Blood” (as if we need reminding!) Here is a cute youtube video of some kids singing Happy Birthday in Swedish :
