April 3rd, Criss Oliva's birthday, will soon be upon us once again. This year would have marked Criss' 39th birthday.
Because of the September 11th attacks, many fans find themselves
in a position where they must "conserve" funds as much as possible, yet would still like to remember Criss in some way. With that in mind, this year's rememberance will be a simple one, kept as inexpensive as possible - Balloons to Heaven.
This year we are asking fans for a $2.00 donation which will buy a helium filled balloon with the above Memorial Card attached to it (each fan that donates will also receive a card as a keepsake). Also, if you'd like, you may add a personal "note" to the back of the card which I will happily add for you.
The balloons will be be taken to Criss' gravesite on April 3rd where a few will be left and the rest released.
If you are interested in participating please send e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org with "Balloons to Heaven" in the subject line. Information as to where to send your donation will be sent to you.
