Both Dominic Keating (Malcolm Reed) and Linda Park (Hoshi Sato) will celebrate birthdays in the beginning of July and the two stars are encouraging fans who want to send gifts to donate to charties in their names instead.
At his official website, Keating requested that if fans wanted to honor his July 1st birthday, the make donations in his name to the Save the Children fund. Keating provided links at his website to the Save the Children branches in Australia, the UK, and the US. The drive for Keating's birthday ends on June 20th.
Fans who make donations will have their donation notifications included in a scrapbook being made by dkfaye at Keating's website. The scrapbook will also include birthday cards sent to the actor.
Linda Park's charity of choice is UNICEF, which fans can donate to in her name up until four days before her July 9th birthday, according to Park's official website. Fans have two options: they can either send a donation to UNICEF by July 5th, or they can purchase a UNICEF Teddy Bear to send to Park. Park will then auction off five of the teddy bears, and donate the rest to children in need. Fans can visit this link to donate in Park's name at UNICEF.
