Just a quick update and a bit of celebration :happybday: . . .
the Zone's 2007 Birthday Project has now raised a little more than $4,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital!
:yahoo:

That's truly amazing! :thanks!: to all our donors.

There is still time to make a contribution . . . the Birthday Project runs through the end of the month. If you happen to get paid on the 1st, as many of us do, and you'd like the chance to give another $5 to the children when the paycheck comes, I think July 1st will count, too. :goodvibes:

Well done, Zoners! And a very happy birthday to our inspiration, Johnny Depp. :lilyrose: Without Johnny, this never would have happened.

You're welcome . . . it's very encouraging to see what Zoners can do when we all work together.

:thanks!: to everyone who has donated this week. Many were repeat donors who dug into their wallets one more time to help the hospital. What big hearts you have! Thank you so much.

Great Great Great !! I am sure it will go for improvements or additions or some kind of needed services for these kiddies.


What a lovely way to thank Johnny for the tremendous gift he gives us.

Happy Birthday Johnny !!

Amazing total so far! Well Done Everyone! Your generosity has just inspired me to donate again. I really hope Johnny gets to know about this, I am sure he would be so proud of his fans! I know I am proud to be one.

This is such great news! I'm so proud of the Zone and everybody that has been able to contribute in whatever amount.

Last year, was Johnny's 43rd birthday and concidentally the amount raised last year was...$4300.

:idea: In the last few days of June, do you think we could aim for $4400 as a goal?
To that end, I could put in a teensie bit more. Just a thought.
I know that whatever the final amount, many good things will come of it.

I think we have an excellent chance of meeting that goal, e_phemera.

Many thanks to everyone who has donated in the last few days--you are fantastic! :angel:

Thanks, PtP, for extending the term until July 1.
It is our "mariage" anniversary day, and taking advantage of this opportunity, I donated again, only a little bit though. :cool:
