I am happy to report I got a thank you letter from the San Jorge Childrens Foundation today. :cloud9: I had mailed them a check a couple of weeks ago and let Theresa know at that time. It made me feel so good and special to receive this and since it is given in Johnny's name is even more so.
Thankyou JDZ and all involved for the opportunity to do this :worldhug:

Thank you for reporting that you got a letter from the Foundation, flo. I'm happy to know that they're acknowledging our donations. And we still have three more days left in this year's project!

Echoing what Theresa said--thanks very much for letting us know that you got a letter back from the Foundation, flo. It's always reassuring to "hear back" and know that your gift got to the right place! :love:

Many thanks to you and all the generous Zoners who have given from their hearts to make this year's Birthday Project such a success!

Very true, ITD. And isn't it a wonderful feeling to know that we can make a difference in the lives of children who really need help. :heart2:

It is a wonderful feeling. ... I just donated... wish I could do more... but together we can make a difference.

I just want to say, I'm proud to be in this great and helpful community! It's so beautiful to know, that you give these children a little bit a better life and that with only a little effort from everyone of us!

Thank you so much for organizing and execution of this big project! :smiliewithhearts:

I'm so happy to be able to help such a worthy cause once again in Johnny's name. I donated yesterday and used a different credit card, not my pay pal from last year, it seems like the donation went through fine, but I noticed that I had put my e-mail in incorrectly and I have not received notification yet. That is okay, I just want to make sure my donation was received, is there a way The Zone can check? Thanks so much for doing all that you do, I am so proud to be a Zoner.

That's one of the great satisfactions of the Birthday Project, bluebird. I don't think there's anyone here who could ever dream of donating $5,000 as an individual to a charity . . . but when we pool our donations, we can do it!

And, somehow, we all have the satisfaction and pleasure of having given $5,000 to help the children and to honor Johnny. That's magical.

It sure does take all of us together to be able to give this gift in Johnny's name. I love the time leading up to Johnny's birthday...the generosity of Zoners and others is an amazing thing to see. :heart2:

As I read all the post on the eve before Johnny's birthday I can't but be proud of all the Zoners who donated. I am sure that Johnny, in knowing that his followers think with their hearts makes him feel very proud. In a world of paparazzi and gossip magazines, he has been able to mostly dodge that kind of publicity(Thank God) and to have such warm hearted "fans" must be a relief for him.

I am also curious as to what the final numbers will be after his actual birthday is over...such a wonderful gift to such a wonderful man . The gift of life to children in need.

Great job every one... :applause2: :toastingpirates:

Drinks all around!!

:smiliewithhearts: I have been fortunate to have participated in all the Zone's birthday projects in honor of Johnny through the years, and each year it seems to get better and better. I made a contribution about a month ago too when this project was announced, and I just gave $4.60 more, in honor of Johnny's 46th birthday tomorrow. I wish I could have given $46, but I know that together with everyone else's contribution, my little bit will add up and do so much good for the children. What a wonderful feeling that gives me! :yahoo:

Thank you, fellow Zoners, for your emotional and financial support to this worthy cause!

I waited until today to make my donation and I am just so proud of the Zone's continued commitment each year to do this in honor of Johnny's birthday. :heart2:
I am impressed to read of San Jorge's quick acknowlegements to some of the donations made thus far. I take this as a sign that they are very grateful for each and every donation made - no matter the amount. Thanks to everyone at the Zone for having kind and loving hearts. :worldhug:
