Richard Armitage’s Birthday Fundraising Success!
22nd August. What do you think of on this date? In 1642 the English Civil War began. In 1902 they founded the Cadillac Motor Company. But we’re missing something… Oh right – it’s Cybersmile Ambassador Richard Armitage’s birthday!

It’s been wonderful to have Richard come on board as an Ambassador this year and he has already made a huge difference in highlighting cyberbullying issues and raising awareness in a wider community of internet users and beyond. The die hard Armitage fans are a fantastic bunch and as well as helping to spread the word about Cybersmile and contributing to our work, including being active members of the Support Community, they have outdone themselves in collecting donations to help us continue the fight against digital abuse.
We are delighted to announce that, to date, this collective effort has raised a grand total of £11,422.78! That’s $17,340.48 to our American friends and €15,618.28 for anyone using the Euro.
.@CybersmileHQ In response to the generosity this weekend, I’d like to say a huge thank you for all the fundraising effort (birthday gifts)
