Today is Giving Tuesday! It is a a global day of giving we celebrate on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and kick off The Big Give Christmas Challenge! So it’s time to be thankful for all the good stuff in our lives and focus on our holiday giving.
Damian Lewis is the proud patron of two charities, Cure EB and Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation (HvH Arts). In the photo above, you see him with two formidable ladies: On the left is Debbi Clark, the founder and CEO of Sir HvH Arts, and on the right is Sharmila Collins, the founder and CEO of Cure EB.
And here I am kindly inviting you to consider giving to these two charities this holiday season. I am sharing information about both as well as about how to donate via The Big Give Christmas Challenge. Please note that timing is key because donations will be DOUBLED by generous fund matchers for a week starting today!
I find it beyond impressive when families turn their tragic losses into good for many others in memory of the loved ones they lost. Ride4Hugo, a campaign Damian’s family run in memory of Hugo Yaxley, Damian and Helen’s nephew, who tragically died in a car accident in November 2020, and also in memory of Helen, who passed away only 5 months after Hugo’s accident, is an extraordinary effort aimed to do good for so many people.
Fan Fun with Damian Lewis is eight years old today!
YES, eight years!
I vividly remember the conversation I had with Lewisto in the last weeks of 2014 about whether it would be worth keeping an online fan diary about Damian Lewis. Being the rational guy that he is, Lewisto suggested I do it only if I was confident I could commit for at least two years so it would be worth the effort.

Helen McCrory was a class act not only in her acting career but also in life and death. The way she chose to live, bravely, focusing on her family, work and charity rather than on her illness is a lesson for us all. Her personality and life deserve a big celebration and we are thrilled to share with you the way Damian has kept celebrating Helen all year long.

And Damian making time for these charities, attending their events and working to raise funds for them is always a TOP MOMENT of the year!
