To PTP and the other moderators,

I can say from reading through this wonderful post that putting something together like this is a very time consuming project. So my thanks to you ladies for taking your time to put this all together so that in turn, we here at the zone can all come together for another wonderful birthday project in honour of Johnny. Your choice this year is wonderful and we certainly can make a bit of a difference by joining together to do this.

Your time and thought for putting this altogether - well my thanks is greatly there for all of you.

Just finished leaving my donation for this wonderful birthday project. I teared up all over the paypal site. Why can't the rest of the world be like the Zone? You're all a bunch of sweethearts. It always amazes me when I think of how this man can inspire so many to do so much. Thanks for the opportunity to contibute. Susan

What can I say? I was one of the lucky recipients of Johnny's kindness this past month, although it did not take place in the state of Wisconsin. But that is trivial and hardly the point.

I went to see a celebrity and instead I saw the most amazing act of human compassion and kindness that I have ever seen in my life. If we all treated each other the way he treated us, the world would be a much better place. If we all just took the time to be with each other; if we had a smile, a kind word, and a gentle touch for each other, we could put an end to all this suffering and live in a world of peace.

So it is with great pride that I contribute to this year's birthday project. He is an inspiration and a wonderful example to us all!

Thanks to all the moderators of this board for coming up with another wonderful idea for the birthday project. A childrens hospital, in an area that seems to have taken Johnny to it's heart this year, is a lovely idea.

Thank you PtP so much for developing this project for us to honor Johnny and help such a worthy hospital. Thanks also to the other JDZ moderators/administrators who also worked on this.

It means so much to be a part of a truly tremendous community (the Zone) and to be able to donate in the name of such a caring actor, artist, talent, person--Johnny Depp. All the world should be more like Johnny.

I just donated, it took only 2 minutes and how good do I feel?

I feel blessed to be able to play a small part of this Birthday-donation project! This really IS the best place. Thank you all for all your hard work to make our contributions possible. This is absolutely wonderful and a perfect choice! You are :angel:'s! I receive so much joy being in such wonderful company (JDZ) on a daily basis. All the pleasure Johnny brings to me personally and a lovely opportunity to 'give back' to show my appreciation in such an honorable way.... Priceless! :hatsoff:

Thank you and the other moderators for your hard work in setting up this project. :hug:


Thanks for your thoughts, ITD. I agree that Wisconsin has given us so much this year, starting with those first days in Columbus, and American Family Children's Hospital seems to share that same warm-hearted hospitality and cheerful view of life, that good-neighborliness, that we saw over and over again at the PUBLIC ENEMIES filming.

Wisconsin has taken good care of Johnny and everyone who came to see him, and it will be good to take care of them in return.

It feels so great to know that as a group we can really make a difference, and make this world a little brighter. Thanks to the Zone and the moderators for giving us this opportunity.

I love to hear stories about Johnny's kindness and generosity, and I was one of the fortunate thousands (!) that met Johnny recently. His warmth warmed my heart, and my frozen hands!
:bounce:
What a blessing he is, and what an inspiration--to honor him this way is a pleasure.

Thanks for creating an opportunity to show Johnny that we "get it". His message of love is loud and clear! :cool:
