If you wondered about the birthday charities, Cumberbatchweb has an update on the Prince's Trust and the MND Association/ALS Association. Those got the most donations, but the other charities I knew of are in this blog post.
Batch of Kindness will be updating the site soon, because the Cumbercollective did so much that it'll take time to sort through everything. Over 86 countries participated!
Here's the larger image of the cake donated to a girls' orphanage for Ben's birthday on Pei's tumblr. Also see her Tweet for the orphanage.
Pei and Petra created an ebook ("Benedict Cumberbatch in Cupcakes") and the proceeds go to charity too.
Cumberbuddy has a lovely collage of Ben gifs that she posted on his birthday. Enjoy!Benedict wants you to know he feels very lucky 2b so loved & appreciated on his birthday & wants to say a huge thankyou for all the messages
