The fans of As the World Turns, Eric Sheffer-Stevens (Reid Oliver) did it again! They hit their new goal of raising over $20,000 for the non-profit medical organization, Doctors without Borders, less than a week after ATWT had it’s final episode! This fantastic news now should by now come as no surprise. It seems after each time ESS fans strived for a fundrasing goal, (to deal with their grief over losing their beloved on-screen Dr. Oliver), they get it, and then set new heights for themselves. It has been an incredible and thoughtful way of honoring their favorite actor.
Eric Sheffer-Stevens himself gave kudos to the group on their accomplishment, and passed along this message to them: “I’m amazed by and extremely grateful for this movement to raise money for Doctors without Borders. The fact that the initial goal was surpassed in such a brief time, and the amended goal accomplished in an equally brief time, is a testament to the strength and generosity and good spirit of this group working together. I know that the point of the movement was to work together to channel collective energies and emotions for a good cause at the end of this chapter, and I’m humbled and moved that it was done in my name. My very best wishes to all. Eric Sheffer Stevens”
