Happy New Year from Team DeKay

Happy 2019, everyone!

2018 was a great year for Team DeKay – and for Tim! We got to see new work from Tim with his recurring role on HBO’s Here and Now, as well as a guest appearance on Ballers. Second Chance was released on DVD. Tim once again performed for A Christmas Pudding, as well as reading for LA Theatre Works’ recording of The Little Foxes.

And, of course, there was Tim’s participation in the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. He came to us to help him raise funds for breast cancer initiatives, and with a raffle, tiered donation prizes, and fan work commissions-for-donations, we managed to help Tim raise just over $2500! Thanks so much to all of those who participated, whether through donating money, donating prizes, or spreading the word through social media! πŸ’—

Also, the fan works commissions-for-donations and the tiered donations ($25 or more for shout-out from Tim in an Instagram video; $100 or more for a chat with Tim) ARE still available through the end of the year, so you still have time to donate for those! Let’s help Tim get the rest of the way to his goal – he’s so close!

Thanks so, so much to everyone who donated to Tim’s campaign, as well as to everyone who donated raffle prizes and fan works, everyone who helped us signal boost on social media, etc. You’re all awesome! πŸ’—

RMWP Update

Thanks so much to everyone to donated to Tim’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign!Β  We’ve helped Tim raise over $2,200 so far – that’s awesome!

The raffle entry period ended on November 30, and we’ll be doing the drawings very soon! I’d hoped to have it done already, but a few big things happened in my life over the past few days (good things), and they’re time-sensitive, so they’re taking a good bit of my time at the moment. We also have to sort everyone into various lists/groups, depending on whether they wanted to be entered into raffles for all of the prizes or just certain prizes.

While the raffle may be done, we are still taking commissions-for-donations for fanworks! In other words, you can still donate and request a fanfic, fan art, or both. Check out this link for more information and “costs” – keep in mind that 100% of your donation goes to Tim’s campaign. We just use the amount of your donation as a reference for how many pieces of art you can request and/or how long your fic will be.

The tiered donations still remain in effect as well. If you donate at least $25, you’ll get mentioned in Tim’s next shout-out video, and if you donate $100 or more, you’ll also get to chat with Tim himself! You still need to email your donation confirmation (screenshot or forward the confirmation email) to us to qualify!

Both the fanwork commissions and the tiered donations will continue until Tim’s RMWP campaign closes at the end of the year. Let’s try to get him to his goal – we’re so close! πŸ’—

It’s #GivingTuesday – Tim’s RMWP Campaign

Today isΒ #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving to and supporting important causes.

As you know by now, Tim is raising funds in the fight against breast cancer through the Real Men Wear Pink campaign. We’ve been focusing mostly on the raffle prizes so far, but we can’t lose sight of the fact that your donations are going toward breast cancer research, patient services (like free rides to treatment and free lodging), education, and much more.

Breast cancer affects people of all genders, but more folks are beating it with each passing year thanks to advances in treatment, earlier detection, and increased awareness – all of which are funded in part by donation campaigns like these!

Please consider giving to Tim’s RMWP campaign – any amount helps! And even if you choose to participate in the raffle and/or request fanworks, 100% of your donation still goes to Tim’s campaign! Let’s see if we can get Tim to his goal! Thank you all so much! πŸ’—

Tim’s first RMWP shout-out video is here

Many of you have probably seen this already on social media, but I wanted to post it here as well!

Today, Tim posted the first of his Real Men Wear Pink shout-out videos for people who donated over $25 to his campaign and sent us their donation confirmations!

There’s still time to enter – click here to go to our page about Tim’s campaign! After you’ve donated on Tim’s campaign page, forward your confirmation email to us or email us a screenshot of your donation confirmation (pink at teamdekay.org), and you’ll be entered into the raffle for some awesome prizes!

If you donate over $25, you’ll automatically qualify for a mention in Tim’s next shout-out video – and if you donate over $100, you’ll get a call from Tim himself! (You can also choose to commission a fanfic or fan art if you’d prefer that over the raffle entries; we’ve had a great response to this option so far!)

Thanks so much to all of those who have donated so far!

Real Men Wear Pink update

We’re now two weeks in to helping Tim with his Real Men Wear Pink fundraiser, and we’ve raised over $1000 for breast cancer awareness and research! Thank you so, so much to everyone who has donated, to those who have offered raffle prizes and fan works, and to those who are helping spread the word on social media. We truly appreciate it!

RMWP total

Just a reminder that if you want to participate in the raffle, tiered donation prizes, or fan work commissions-for-donations, you need to email your donation confirmation to us! Instructions are on our RMWP page. If you’re having trouble getting your confirmation to us, send us a message her or on social media.

Also, stay tuned for the first of the tiered donation shout-out videos, coming soon!

Our raffle runs until November 15, but Tim’s RMWP campaign will still be active until the end of the year. Raising funds for this important cause doesn’t stop just because October is over! We’ll likely continue the tiered donation prizes (depending on Tim’s availability) and the fan works commissions-for-donations through the end of the year as well.

Real Men Wear Pink

We’re proud to be teaming up with Tim and the Real Men Wear Pink campaign to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness! And when you donate on Tim’s page, you can also earn chances to win some great prizes, including a one-on-one chat with Tim himself!

We’ve set up a page here on the site with all of the details: Real Men Wear Pink.

There are three different ways to participate, including a raffle, tiered donations (again with a chance to chat with Tim), and fan creation (fanfic or art) commissions for donations! 100% of your donations will go to Tim’s RMWP campaign – the prizes are just a bonus!

We’ll be posting more about this (and updating the page) over the coming days and weeks, so stay tuned for more information. And if you have any questions, please email us or use the contact form!

Thank you for your donations and for helping Tim raise money for such a worthy cause!

Tim in “A Christmas Pudding”

It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, but Tim posted some great news on Instagram today. “A Christmas Pudding” has returned this year, and Tim will once again be a member of the cast! And with yet another White Collar reunion of sorts, the cast also features Sharif Atkins and his wife, Bethany (who is a White Collar “Harvard Crew” alum herself)!

The show features stories, songs, and more – and you’ll have two chances to catch it this year if you’re in the southern California area. The first show is on Friday, December 15 at 7pm at Westwood Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, and the second show is on Saturday, December 16 at 7pm at St. Augustine By-the-Sea in Santa Monica, CA. Admission is $25 (or $5 for kids under 16), and the show benefits PATH (People Assisting the Homeless).

Here’s Tim’s Instagram post with the flyer for the show. Hopefully some of you are able to go see Tim, Sharif, Bethany, and the rest of the cast!

Great cause, great cast, great night filled with Christmas stories and songs!

“The Raven” Reading for Astor Benefit

Astor Services for Children & Families has posted the video of celebrities (including Tim!) reading Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” for their Ghostories Fundraising Benefit on YouTube. The benefit featured in-person readings of other stories by White Collar‘s Hilarie Burton and husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural), with Griffin Dunne and Mary Stuart Masterson, as well as the collaborative video reading of “The Raven.”

Tim does a hauntingly beautiful reading of the first stanza of the poem. The video also features Willie Garson, Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, Matt Dallas, Normal Reedus, Paul Rudd, and many more. Check it out!

Thanks so much to Astor for posting this, and to all of the actors who donated their time and voices to a great cause!

Gallery Update and Birthday Reminder

We still haven’t seen any photos of Tim from this year’s Every Child Matters 5k yet, but I was finally able to get HQ versions of most of the photos from last year! I’ve uploaded them to the gallery, as well as adding a few new shots. (There are still a few LQ photos; HQ versions of those weren’t available, but since the photos were different, I kept them in the album.) Among the new photos are two group shots for you to play “Where’s Tim.” πŸ˜‰ Click on the image below to go to the gallery!

Also, just a reminder that we’re still taking birthday messages for Tim! Email them to birthday@teamdekay.org by tomorrow, and we’ll post them here on his birthday, as well as emailing him! You can send anything – message/poem, photo or fanart, video, etc. Thanks so much to all of those who have already submitted birthday greetings! πŸ˜€
