In an unprecedented show of support, love, and grief, fans of As the World Turns, Eric Sheffer-Stevens (Dr. Reid Oliver), donated another $3,000 to the efforts of the fan base for the non-profit organization, Doctors without Borders. DWB is a charity that delivers aid to people affected by armed combat, epidemics and natural disasters, internationally.
As legions of Sheffer-Stevens fans watched as Reid was going to be crushed by an oncoming train, (while his car was stalled on a railroad track, and unable to free himself when his seat belts apparently malfunctioned) the giving to the charity was overwhelming.
The group is now at $11,500, and they are very close to their goal of $15,000. Now that’s a way to honor your favorite actor and soap character! More on this Tuesday, when the fallout of Reid’s catastrophic accident plays out.
