As everyone has by now heard, Bill is very ill and needs surgery to remove a cyst on his vocal cords. Once the surgery is over, he'll have to spend some time without talking or singing, to allow his throat to heal.
We here at Tokio Hotel International want Bill to know that we're by his side and will be here to support him no matter how long that process takes. We want him to hear that his fans will still be waiting for him, and that our first priority is his health. So we want you to join us in an international get well video for Bill.
Send us a picture of yourself with your finger to your lips as though saying "shhhh!" and holding up a get well message for Bill, written in your own language. Please include a translation of the message into either German or English, as we are going to have all the messages translated into German for Bill. You have until April 11th to get your pictures to us. Please send them to email@example.com. Pictures should be in jpg format. It also needs to be taken in landscape format rather than portrait (that means the longest part of the picture needs to be across rather than up and down). As soon as we get all the pictures, we'll organize them into a video for Bill, so he'll know how much his fans wish him well soon.
[Edit DATE CHANGED TO 6TH April]
If you have any questions, you can check here on the forum, or you can email us here at THI: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can now announce that we will be posting the vid to various places around the internet and also sending it in DVD hardcopy to Bill via some very nice people at Universal.
Also, please don't forget the two e-cards that have been organized for Bill. There is one organized by THDA on MySpace. The link is here, and you need a MySpace account to sign. The other one is on LiveJournal, although anyone can sign it, whether they have a journal or not. It can be found here.
