Happy 48, Johnny ! :flashingheart:


Thanks for your kind words!

I'm thrilled to see that the counter on our Mercy Corps donation page is already close to $1,000! :loveshower: Less than $50 to cross that first threshold.

Many thanks to all the generous people who have made donations!

That's impressive and heartwarming news PtP and Theresa, a speedy start towards that hoped for total by the time Johnny's birthday is here. Zoners generosity every year despite the financial hardships suffered by so many always amazes me and makes me so proud to be a member of this site. :heart2:

Thank you for once again giving us an opportunity to give to a worthy cause on behalf of our beloved Johnny. He is so quietly generous to so many, it is a privilege and an honor to donate on his behalf.

Quick update--our 2011 Birthday Project total is nearly $1,700!

($1,693, to be exact.)

Well done! And if you get paid in the middle of the month, that might be a good time to donate a few dollars to help Japan.

I do a lot of work for charities, and this is really worthwhile.

Have sent my donation through PayPal.

My friend Yukiko Saga and her family live in Komaki, Aichi, Japan and they were among some of the fortunate ones :-)
