Two Weeks to Go!

Hi Everyone!

Wow! There’s a lot going on these days!! The TwitChange auction benefitting Operation Once In A Lifetime is going strong and you folks have made a huge difference and a major impact! I am so proud of my friends and fans for their support in the campaign-whether it be it with a bid (amazing!), a desire to support OOIAL with a donation, or just cheering on and tweeting and retweeting to get the word out-I appreciate everyone’s efforts and enthusiasm-we’ve made a lot of people take notice! Keep retweeting and sharing the campaign with all your followers!

In case you missed it yesterday, there was radio play for “In Time” that got a wee bit of attention.. and the DJ that played the song liked it so much, he’s going to feature another song on his show next week!   The initial contact with that DJ came from you all-and I’m grateful for all that everyone is doing to share “In Time”!

There are two weeks left in our first street team mission and I just want to say that I’ve really been amazed and humbled by all the efforts being put forth to share the flyers and the music from the album! I really do have the best fans and friends out there!! If you aren’t on my street team-there’s still plenty of time to join in on the very first mission-consider getting in on the fun today! Remember to go to the forum on my website (www.ryankellymusic.com) and post up how you’re getting the word out so you can be eligible for the random drawings being held after the mission ends.

Since there are just a few days left in the mission timeline, let’s all ramp it up just a little bit.  Here’s something easy you can do to help spread the word.  Let’s feature a “song a day” anywhere you can!  You can do this in two ways:

1) Go to my reverbnation page (www.reverbnation.com/ryankellyofficial) -under each song is a “share” you can click on and choose where you want to share the song-pick your favourite song for the day and share it on your facebook, on twitter, on myspace, on your blogs-anywhere and everywhere!

2) If you are on my facebook music page (www.facebook.com/ryankellymusic) – click on the “band profile” tab at the top of the wall, and pick your favourite, and click the “share” button.  This allows you to put the song right on your wall and it shares it in the newsfeed to all your friends and family!

Let’s start sharing a “song a day” today!!!

I can’t say enough how much I appreciate every one of you and all the support you show for myself and my music–you all give 110% to everything you do and I’m so grateful to you for sharing every step of this journey with me –it gets more exciting everyday!!

Chat soon-

Ryan, What a Grand Idea! I shall start sharing today. :) I have been doing as much as I am possible to do right now in spreading you to people. a lab technician that I introduced CT to, and she did look you all up, I told her about you and your album, I am sure that she will look you up too. It possibly won’t be within the next two weeks but I am going to see if I can put up some flyers, when I go back up to Stanford again within the next month or so. You really are awesome. I go to sleep every night listening to you and CT too. I listen to you all night long, as long as my MP4 stays charged up and doesn’t die on me.

Just left you a “report” in the Forum! Since I am @ home recouping a knee injury, I have had lots of time to surf on my laptop and to participate at several levels! . I am so happy that the auction is going well, I will be donating in your name! I also got the idea to create an “ad” for you for “In Time @ Valentine’s Day “on Twitter. Hoping for all my Tweethearts to retweet!
I love the comments from @Twitchange, and the other celebs. “Thunderous Celt”? a NEW title for the former “Dark Destroyer” and “Pleasuredome”, lmao! O I think I like “Heathcliff” too, so literary! We teachers appreciate that!
Take care, and enjoy the ride, my Friend!
Cheers, Maggie <3

Thank you Ryan for your post….great idea a Song- a – day! I have been posting them to Twitter and elsewhere

Thanks for the suggestions. I am going to try them, but may mess up as I am not so good on this computer posting, paste,etc stuff. But I am willing to try to do any thing possible to help you or make you happy. The following words are not mine originally, and you probably have heard them before ,.but they do express my heartfelt wish for you:
MAY YOU ALWAYS BE BLESSED
WITH WALLS FOR THE WIND
A ROOF FOR THE RAIN,
A WARM CUP OF TEA BY THE FIRE,
LAUGHTER TO CHEER YOU,
THOSE YOU LOVE NEAR YOU,
AND ALL THAT YOUR HEART MIGHT DESIRE.
And I would add: May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and bless you as much as you bless others.
with my sincere love & appreciation, NellieBelle1936

Ryan! Its Saturday night here in NJ, and the @Twitterchange auction is done…what a rush to hear the actual numbers in donations and bids!. I am so proud to have been involved in some small way. Hoping that our ReTweeting may have been instrumental in keeping Twitterers aware of the OOIAL benefit auction, and the opportunity to make a donation. The updates kept us excited for the success of the event! Another good job in your name, Ryan! You may become famous for your charitable work as well as your terrific music,( even though that would probably embarrass you)! Looking forward to see who the lucky winners are! Take care, Cheers! Mags <3

As you can see on my Fb page, Ryan. I started posted your songs. I just can’t say what some of them do to my thoughts and heart when I hear them. Cuz,well you already know because I told you personally how certain ones affect me. Besides I promised you I wouldn’t CRY, but shh you won’t tell that I do anyhow when I’m alone. LOVE YOU Mi CORAZON <3 into eternity and that's not a threat but a PROMISE!!!!!!!!!!!! MAY GOD BLESS YOU & ALL YOU DO!!!!!!!!!!!!! *2 *

Ryan–You are such a thoughtful young man and I bet your parents are very proud of you. It seems everything in the universe lined up just right when you came into this world. Like the lady in an earlier comment, I consider you my adopted son. When I talk to family and friends about you, I always say, “My boy Ryan….” And I also pray for you every time I go to Mass. I worry about your flying in airplanes so much!

I am glad you donated blood. I had my second bout with cancer two years ago and had to have 8 blood transfusions. I deeply appreciate all the people who donate blood. I would donate blood myself, but they won’t allow it since I have had cancer twice.

I hope you guys enjoy your trip to Australia. Do be careful, though. And when you and George do those promo tours, I hope you make it back to St. Louis. You have a LOT of fans here in St. Louis!

You are just a good kid and a great guy. We need more like you in this world.

See you this fall.

So glad to see your personal website up and running again. I can’t help but repeat myself over and over how over the moon I am that you are back. I am looking forward to seeing you perform again as only you can and for more great music coming from you personally. Hope you are home to stay.
