A few weeks ago Alexander Skarsgard sent out a personal note regarding something very near and dear to his heart…Hammarby of course!!
What’s Hammarby you ask…well in short…it’s the Tall One’s favorite fotboll/soccer team back home in Sweden…
Hammarby Fotboll is a Swedish football club based in Johanneshov – just south of Södermalm, the southernmost borough of Stockholm city center. In Sweden, the club is often referred to by its nickname Bajen (a short form of a mock-English pronunciation of “Hammarby”).~Wikipedia
So long story short…Bajen Aid was formed because the team is going bankrupt…something we can’t let happen…the Tall One would be sad : (
Bajen Aid is a non-profit society trying to raise support and money saving Hammarby Fotboll from going bust. Hammarby (also called “Bajen”) is a bohemian and famous soccer team in Sweden which currently has a huge financial deficit due to relegation from the top tier last year. ~Bajen Aid
So the Tall One was on his way to Sweden for the Bajen Aid auction a couple weeks ago when I asked if I could put a few of the items I’ve obtained over the last 18 months up on EBAY! He said sure and that he had more to send. And he did…with the help of the lovely Riita from the SkarsgardNews team (as our translator went to the event to get our stuff but had an appointment…the Tall One was running late that day but he did meet her at brunch the following morning…hence the handsome man on the banner above…Tack J and POK! : )
Alexander received this framed photo at the Straw Dogs Wrap Party last year!
It was personally autographed by Alexander on October 2rd, 2010 while attending the Bajen Aid Auction in Stockholm, Sweden (see pix).
Now is your chance to not only own a piece of this movie before it’s September 2011 release date, but to own a piece of this movie signed by Alexander himself!
L.A. screenwriter David Sumner relocates with his wife to her hometown in the deep South. There, while tensions build between them, a brewing conflict with locals becomes a threat to them both. The wife’s ex-boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgard), a former high school football hero, sees her return as an opportunity to reclaim glory.
So in the spirit of Bajen…and Alexander…
Any questions or concerns…email me at JENNA@ALEXSKARSGARD.NET
NOTE: To curb a few questions early…
#1. This framed photo has been donated by Alexander, the winning bidder is purchasing the photo so NO…a tax receipt will NOT be given!
#2. The funds are being donated in Alexander’s name so YES…he will see final totals of auctions held and his management will be sent a copy of receipt of payment to BAJEN AID as proof! (For those who question where the funds are going…I wanted to make that clear!)
#3. Ask questions BEFORE you bid as the auction is NON-REFUNDABLE!! After I send the monies to Bajen Aid I cannot get it back…you’ll have to take my word that this stuff is what I say it is…from Alexander…from Sweden…via Riita and our J! We provide the pix of Alexander holding/signing the items as proof!
#4. YES YOU CAN HELP!! Please help us spread the bajenaid.se website link as far and wide as you can…they also have a twitter page…@hammarbysvanner
