Re my previous post - I promised to expand on this, so - this is how I found out about the gifts. I was reading melyanna_65's wonderful report about her visit to LFCC & amongst the replies was a comment from the young lady who sat next to Elijah on the Saturday. This is what she said:

"I was the girl sat with elijah when you met him on the saturday. i can not even begin to describe how much reading your report has made me smile. im so glad that you had such a good experience.

i would also like to say that i personally placed all of elijahs gifts into a box at the end of the day. they are being packaged and forwarded to him. i was there when he spoke to the organiser about this and i thought that maybe you would like to know that your gifts didnt end up in an unwanted corner or the nearest bin."


In another comment she said:

"it was amazing to be sat there all day. as you can imagine i didnt get a chance to speak to him much with him being so busy but it was amazing to see people such as yourself.

one of the best things about working for showmasters is being a part of making peoples dreams come true and being there to witness it in person. it really is a lovely sight to behold.

elijah was one of the best guests i have worked with. he was polite all day and gave me a hug to say thank you at the end. he was happy with whatever and didnt make any demands. such a lovely guy and i am glad you got the chance to meet him."


This reminded me of when I spoke to the girl who sat by him at Collectormania - she described him as "an absolute angel".

Anyway, I asked this young lady if it would be ok to quote her on my LJ - this is an extract of her reply:

"elijah had so many gifts that i personally packed them into a box. elijah asked Showmasters what would happen to them all and SM said that they would get the address he wanted them to be sent to and ship them out to him. elijah seemed pretty pleased with this so from that i guess he wanted to keep his gifts.

now what happened after that i do not know. i cant say if the same thing happened at other events or if it will ever happen again. of course none of us can know what happens to the gifts once they get shipped... but im sure it would be easier for elijah to go over them in detail in his own time.

i know that it means a lot to some people to know that their gift dont just get thrown away by the organisers at the end of an event. and in this case i can safely say they were looked after.
hope that makes some of you smile."


It certainly makes me smile - muchly!! :D

Many thanks to those who paid a visit to Allie & Marie:)

That is so lovely, and such a far cry from what Showmaster told us!

Bless Elijah, and bless you for telling us!!

Yes, from what SM told us, he must be the exception to the rule, bless him:)

It was so nice of her to let us know - although I've always had a gut feeling that he appreciated & kept his gifts:)

Hey not_alone! You really can´t imagine how you pleased me by this report...It is touching and warm to read about feeling of that girl who was so premium to sit next to him for all that day! And the more lovely is to read about her emotion from this day...he IS absolute angel!
I am not able to concentrate to anything, I wish to spend all these days with you via my LJ!

Thanks not_alone for the report. To be honest I couldn´t imagine Allie´s trabants thrown into a waste basket (and of course, not any other gifts).
That´s great that the girl shares her experiences with us.
Marie :-)

was sent here by yeuxdebleu

this is kinda long so bear with me.

my little elijah fan club sent him a gift back in 2004. things from all over the world were included in this gift. one being a rare beatles collection of music. we sent it to his PR people, not his manager. they said elijah would get it and they would let us know.

well, we never heard back and was very anxious to know if he had it, but didn't want to be a bunch of pests about it. they have things to do and can't be bothered constantly about something like that.

so last year at ELF i asked elijah if he got it. i described what it was like and some of the things in it. he looked pretty upset that he didn't get it...especially when i told him about the beatles music. ;-) the man actually apologized to ME saying how sorry he was he doesn't have it, and how difficult it is for him to get a lot of things sent to him. i mentioned the ladies names who we were in contact with and he recognized the names and reassure me that he would get the package. if he did, i don't know if i'll ever find out.

but i did get great news. i gave him a handmade doll at ELF. he signed one like it a few years before and really liked it, but the lady didn't want to give it up. she made a couple more and...

you know? this is getting long. instead of taking up more space, you can read about it HERE.

thanks for sharing this person's experience. it's good to know elijah values the things his fans take the time to make and give him. :)

Oh dear - I couldn't read the story about the doll - its a locked journal. I'd love to know what happened:) That is so bad of them not to send your gift on to Elijah. I don't think I'd ever feel happy sending anything to the PR people, just wouldn't trust them. I do hope he got his gift in the end:)

Oh thanks so much for this, dear friend! You have really made me smile and I'm so grateful to the young lady for replying and reassuring us about the fate of the gifts Elijah was given. It means so much to know that he appreciated the fact that people gave him things and that he wanted them shipped on to him.

*hugs*

It's lovely to know, isn't it?

Don't know about you, but more than a week later I still haven't caught up with my LJ etc - everywhere I turn there seems to be more pics and reports from London. Which is very nice:)
