Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard graciously posed for the their photos wearing their “Battle of the Fang” t-shirts. Stephen wore the “winning” shirt shown above together with Alexander wearing the non-winning (ok I don’t want to say the losing shirt..). Amazing fans contributed $70,000 for the battle of the fang! More amazing I feel are Stephen and Alexander for agreeing to the Battle itself and posing in their shirts. So cool to see them enjoying themselves! Huge thanks to The Nest and to alexskarsgard.net for the contest and for the pix!
SOS Children’s Villages issued a press release today on the fundraising efforts by Alexander Skarsgard. It does on mention the Battle of the Fang but Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer were both wonderful in their support to the charities for the fundraising contest. The release below is from SOS Children’s Villages. Again kudos to Alexander and Stephen for raising so much money for their causes. Another huge thanks to the amazing fans who made this all possible.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — SOS Children’s Villages, a global organization dedicated to the long-term care and prevention of orphaned and abandoned children, today announced that Alexander Skarsgard has helped raise over $35,000 for their programs.
Thanks to Mr. Skarsgard’s efforts, the majority of the funds were directly donated through the SOS web site. The auction of two True Blood television scripts on eBay – each one personally annotated and autographed by Mr. Skarsgard – brought in additional funds.
The donations to SOS Children’s Villages were the culmination of a good-natured, fundraising competition between Mr. Skarsgard and fellow True Blood cast member Stephen Moyer. Mr. Moyer’s supporters raised funds for the Gulf Relief Foundation.
“We are so privileged to have Alexander Skarsgard as a supporter of SOS,” said Heather Paul, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages – USA. “His commitment to SOS has raised awareness of the plight of orphaned and abandoned children. Through encouraging his fans to donate to SOS, we have raised thousands of dollars to help many in need, and we are grateful to Alexander for his contributions.”
Mr. Skarsgard’s career in the United States has most recently included a highly popular role as Eric Northman on True Blood. In addition to recently presenting at the Emmy Awards, Skarsgard is filming the movie Battleship, based on Hasbro’s popular board game, scheduled for release in 2012.
