"I had to write to let you know how successful our eBay auctions have been. Since starting on May 12th we have just reached a fantastic £10,000. Not bad in five months!!! Our ICT room is now built, furnished and will be officially opened on 14th November. A huge thank you for giving us the idea, and for all the addresses, as all our successes have come from your directory."

"I just thought you might like to know how much we raised from the shoe auction. The total was £10,941.41. Thank you for all your help with this."
"You'd recently posted Daniel Day Lewis filming in the UK, so I wrote away, never imaging anything would come back as he is notoriously private on set and doesn't generally sign anytime. I received my There Will Be Blood 8x10 back personalised and signed my the man himself, I've checked against IP sources and it's genuine...and therefore my best auto. DDL is my favourite actor."

"You may recall I contacted you earlier in the year for some advice concerning the work we do for the Birth Defects Foundation Charity
. I am delighted to tell you that as a result of using Star Directory we have had a staggeringly successful response netting more than 400 personally autographed teddy bear T shirts, many of them hand decorated and with personal notes. They range from Sir Elton John and Sir Cliff Richard to Tina Turner, George Clooney and Archbishop Desmond Tutu!"

"Thanks so much again for all your work. Please don't spend any more time on June Fulton, Mary Germaine and Virginia Gibson. The info that you have got for 9 out of 12 is amazing. My friend has been sending copies of his book to these starlets over the last few months (they are all in the book) and has had some wonderful replies from them."

"Just wanted to say congratulations on the new site I think it is great. I think the site provides great value for money, it's well laid out and the search facility is so quick and easy to use plus the amount of extra addresses you have provided is tremendous, I have already found some more addresses that I had been looking for."

"I bought your Star Directory quite a while ago just to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy charity that I am secretary of locally. We are holding a charity auction here in Aberystwyth this year. Thanks to you I am awash with autographs!! I was thrilled to get Kirk Douglas's in which he has signed "Caring and Sharing" - nice man. Ian Botham sent me a signed book and Bernie Eccleston donated two Formula 1 Play Station games for the auction. And there are still more autographs arriving through my door."

"Your website is awesome!!! Today I received another signed comic book. This one by Adam West. He personalized it especially for our school. I also received Tobey Maguire's autograph from the "in production" address for Spiderman II and a autograph from Jackie Chan. The mail time on all of these was 3 weeks. You have no idea how excited we are about the celebrity autographs that continue to come in."
"I've been so impressed with your website. Anything I have wanted I have been able to find, or through your Address Request system you have found it so promptly. I sing your praises to everyone. Thanks for making a difficult task (finding good addresses) easy."

I purchased the Star Directory when it was at Edition 4 to help build up my own [autograph] collection and have since bought the recent one which has helped me to raise a fantastic £813.88 from just three auctions on eBay for Sheffield Children's Hospital, Chrystal Radio

"It is only recently that I have started sending items away to be signed and I am amazed that the majority of my stuff has been returned signed. I am also astounded at the fact I have only received about 4 pre-prints since I started using Star Directory (or my Bible, as it is affectionately known) last year."
