    Hey Fahkah’s!! :) 

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG 

    OH MY GOODNESS!! 

    ITS ME!! 

    Hail Hail!! - WOO-HOO!! 

    THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!

    It’s really for me!?! :) 

    I am still in shock!! 

    I thought this was a joke at first!! 

    I kept thinking - they chose me?? They chose ME??? THEY CHOSE ME!!!! YEEESSSS!!! 

    You Guys Are Legends!! :) 

    So much Awesomeness!! 

    This is heaps cool!! 

    Without a doubt, this is such a surreal experience. 

    It feels wonderful to be included in this amazing alumni of recipients. 

    When I first learned about the Holy Grail a few years back I was excited, I thought it was a brilliant idea, and I couldn’t wait to help donate to these acts of kindness; plus, cmon  following the “chosen ones” is so fun! 

    I love reading the threads about each person getting their Holy Grail!!! I never imagined it could be me!! I am super happy!! My mind is blown!! - Serious!! 

    Pearl Jam means a bunch to me - I have been an enamoured fan from early on - which isn’t easy on the other side of the planet from Seattle. It started with the music & lyrics, bootlegs, live shows, reading and hearing stories - the musicians with what they stand for... then I got into the merchandise, collecting, trades, sharing & helping other fans - its all a bit nice. The people you meet on this all encompassing trip are all like long lost friends, and the sense of community here is strong. Some feel like family. I am pleased beyond words this exists. Life is complicated and chaotic at times, but when it gives you these special moments it feels immeasurably spectacular. I wish I could give everyone a fat hug for this and yes I am smiling bigtime!! THANKYOU for your generosity!!

    My Holy Grail is the 1996 Pearl Jam Merriweather Poster “the mermaid” and I am so pleased to say I love it!! When it arrived I didn’t know what to do I was so beside myself!! Unwrapping it felt incredible!! I cried on seeing it (**in a non weirdo happy way - just saying) It’s Gorgeous!! I adore it even more now it’s in real life!! The artwork is exquisite and the colours pop - the detail is extraordinary!! The poster has always somehow eluded me but regardlessly I have admired it for years ... I chose it to be my grail because I love the idea of the mermaid. I have liked the ocean ever since I was a kid, I enjoy the feeling of being free and at the same time intrinsically connected to nature when I swim. 

    This poster I promise to treasure always, and it will remain as a significant crowning jewel of my collection, that I will continue to feel a great fondness for every time I look at it for years to come.

    THANKYOU so much to all that helped make this happen. Thanks for thinking of me and giving me this memory. I will speak of this with great pride and enthusiasm forever. 

    THANKYOU so much also for helping with a donation to - “the Quinlan Foundation” - an epic group that I hope everyone who isn’t already familiar with them, can take a few minutes and read about them, share with others about them, and get onboard! They are lovely people, (like you all are) and they are doing so much good it is to be commended!! 

    Finally I want to give a heartfelt THANKYOU so much for this Holy Grail! 

    You guys are all Gems!! If Pearl Jam ever remembers Australia in their tour schedule again - come for the show then swing by my house and take a gander at this freaking astoundingly perfect poster!! 

    Thanks again Everyone!! 

    Sending peace & love in bunches, 

    Bel.
