Hi David,I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. It's kind of strange, wishing someone you've never met and really don't know a happy birthday. I feel like I'm actually wishing a happy birthday to two people. David James Gandy, the world only male supermodel, and David Gandy the man from Essex. I don't profess to know either one of those men, these are just my thoughts, my observations, which could be completely off the mark. I first saw the Light Blue commercial in May of last year while watching ESPN Sports Center with my son. You popped up big as life on that big screen, and my brain said, 'huh, nice commercial, damn he's hot.' At the time, that was that, life moved on. But then, one morning, there was that darn commercial again, and I had some time on my hands, so I googled 'whos the guy in the Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue commercial'. And there you were. Well, there was David James Gandy the supermodel. I was blown away. I must have been living in a cave to have not noticed you before that morning. Yes, I thought, this boy pulled his looks from the good end of the gene pool. Because, damn, the camera loves you. I searched pictures, websites, liked your page on Facebook, much to my husbands dismay I may add. Following you even got me on Twitter. Yep, the face of the model drew me in, but it was the heart I saw in the man who has kept my attention. The more I read about you, the more I learned about you, the more I was impressed. Not with the model David James Gandy. But with the man behind the brand. Don't get me wrong you're a great model, but you're so much more than the brand. I think a lot of fans forget the man behind the brand. The man who gives his time to Style for Soldiers, because he understands that those service men are heroes. That they may need and deserve a helping hand when they come home. Just a simple shirt can do so very much to move a man forward. The man who supports Capstar Chauffeurs because he understands that a person needs to work, to feel useful, to regain a bit of life they thought may have been lost to the devastation of war. The man who spends his off days at Battersea giving unconditional love to lost and homeless dogs. I firmly believe you can tell a lot about a man by the way he treats animals. The kindness in your heart is seen in every picture of you with a dog. The smile we see from you when you're doing what you truly love, that smile, could light up the city London with the joy it conveys.We both share a fondness for quotes, and I found one that spoke to me about what I think you'd like all your fans to do to celebrate your birthday. It's as follows: Plant the seeds of Love in our hearts. Let them grow into trees of Service. That is the proper way to celebrate the Birthday. To celebrate of your birthday, not with overly fluffy messages like the one I just wrote above, but with a deed to give back to someone or something else in your name.I also made a video for you, to the song Simple Man by Lynryd Skynryd. The song is a prayer from a mother to son, it's what I believe that boy from Essex is in his heart.....a simple kind of man, the kind who loves and understands. I wish you peace and joy on your birthday David. Oh, from one mother to another, please tell your Mom, well done Mrs. Gandy, well done indeed.
