Matt Bomer Birthday Project 2012

Since Matt will be turning 35 years old on October 11th, I thought it would be a good time to start planning for it. This year, we’ll be creating a video with fan made signs to wish Matt a happy birthday. Since making videos is not my forte, I’ve enlisted my talented new online friend Dann to create it for us.

In order to participate, you just need to make a sign with a small message to Matt and take a photo of you holding it. Please include your name and country on it as well. For those a bit camera shy, you can also hide some (not all!) of your face with the sign. Please make sure the writing is legible, not too small, and that you’re in good lighting so he’ll be able to read it. And lastly, please don’t gush about how good-looking he is on your sign. I’m sure he would appreciate that!

The deadline for the birthday project is October 1st. That way, Dann will have enough time to prepare the video before the big day. We’re more than likely going to upload it to YouTube so Matt can view it easier, but it can be unlisted to protect everyone’s privacy. If you don’t feel comfortable sending in a photo, you can also leave your birthday wishes in the comments on October 11th.

In order to submit your photo, please email it to (deadline now reached) with “Matt Bomer Bday Project” as the subject. We’ll send you an email back to confirm it has been accepted. We also haven’t decided on what song(s) to use for background music, so if you have any suggestions, please let us know!

If you have any questions or concerns, you can comment here, or send us an email using the address above. On Matt’s birthday, I’ll direct him to this site and will let everyone know his response. ย Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing your submissions!

– Kelly & Dann

  • In case you want to get a better idea, here’s an example (non-birthday) video I participated in:

  • Cheri

    I’ve been thinking about M’s b’day as well. Would like to organize a “gift.” If he could tell us what charity(ies) he’d like his “gift” to be sent to, we could send checks to that charity with “Matt Bomer’s B’day” in the purpose line. I’m sure many of his fans would like to express their affection for him in a way that would do some good. Do you think he’d agree to something like that? Do you have a way of asking him?

  • My friend Laura recently auctioned off an autographed “White Collar” poster and Matt chose The Art of Elysium for the charity. I’m sure he would really appreciate it. I’ve kept the birthday projects quite simple so far, but have thought about doing a charity fundraiser instead. If there is enough interest, I would love to do that next year.

  • Daniela

    B-day project! Good idea, I’m working on it!

  • Laura

    I’ll of course participate, Kelly. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I’m that Laura referenced above. Cheri, either The Art of Elysium or Trevor Project. He almost chose Trevor but then decided that The AofE needed the money more at the moment.

  • The USA White Collar Forum has been discussing your birthday project for Matt. As soon as we figure out what we’re going to do, we’ll be sending our photos off to you. I listed the forum in the website box because that’s where you’ll usually find me. I’m one of several USA moderators but the White Collar Forum is my home base.
