Say you didn't celebrate Cumberday -- aka Benedict Cumberbatch's 36th birthday this past Thursday.
Or maybe you did, and perhaps on Friday you had a sugar rush and/or hangover to nurse. Maybe you spent your day Tweeting or sharing the day with other fans.
What matters is that he heard (and was gobsmacked, frankly)... and so did other people, who kindly sent Benedict's thanks back to us all.
His birthday charity has clocked over £9,027.71 as of 20-July-12, says Hypable. They've got the birthday video made for Benedict by fans. Benedict's response was on Twitter, and here's Naomi's email update as well.
And another post about the birthday charity from 19-July, which includes a video interview from Cheltenham Music Festival. Which is where Benedict found out about this whole effort by his fans.
For every one of you who spread the word, and put time and money into this -- especially Naomi of @Cumberbatchweb! -- you rock. Thank you so much for all you did!
P.S. Rumor says Benedict may play The Master in Doctor Who. Another 2012 source says the same. I'm not seeing a more recent article... your mileage may vary.
