- Do a good deed for Damian!
In honor of Damian Lewis’s February 11th birthday fans are asked to perform an act of kindness in January or February (something special and extra) on his behalf. This can be a donation of time or money to a worthy cause or just being there to help someone in need – anything you’d like to do would be great.
Damian is an ambassador for the (non-denominational) Christian Aid organization and a special opportunity has been created for anyone who would like to support this charity in his honor. Just make an online donation in any amount (US$, €, or GB£) and write “Damian Lewis fan club donation” on the first line of the billing address so that Christian Aid can send a card to Damian Lewis to inform him of the donations made by his supporters.
