Amazing, isn't it? :yahoo: Donations flowed in to this year’s Birthday Project from all over the world. :worldhug:


The final total includes $6,190.60 in donations to the Zone's Paypal account for the Birthday Project, and $844.62 given directly to the San Jorge Children’s Foundation in San Juan by Zoners.


Your generosity is so inspiring--even in the worst economic times most of us have ever seen, you still found a way to help the children of Puerto Rico, and to honor Johnny with your gift. :loveshower:


Thank you so much! to each and every one of you, :bouquet: for bringing this year's Birthday Project to such a wonderful conclusion.

That's outstanding! Many thanks to PTP and Theresa for getting this organized and to all the Zoners who participated in heart or fact. We've helped a lot of children with this and I'm proud to be a part of it. Johnny, thanks go especially to you for being such an inspiration to us all.

Bravi! :applause2:

What an outstanding gift from an outstanding group of people. :goodvibes: It's a privilege to be part of a community that goes above and beyond to honor a special man and in the process provide comfort and assistance to some of the world's youngest members. Excellent!

Special thanks to PTP and Theresa for all the work involved to develop, track, provide information for and manage this project! :chocolat:

:applause2: This is wonderful news! Thanks PtP and Theresa for planning this and keeping us updated throughout. I'm very proud to be a part of this project every year and the Zone community. I'm sure the donation will be well used by the foundation in helping the children of PR. What a grand way to celebrate Johnny and all that he gives us. Well done all!

Thanks to you as well, Theresa. It somehow escaped me that you were also organizing this! Sorry for the oversight.

WOW!!! Absolutely FANTASTIC!!! GOD BLESS JOHNNY for being such a sweet soul that he inspires us all to love each other more and from that love comes a desire to help others, in this case, precious children.

I'm SOOOOOO proud to be a ZONER!!! :applause: :loveshower: :snoopydances:

This is outstanding news of how a little goes a long way.
Near or far, the generosity from Zoners is to be congratulated.
The teamwork, in honor of Johnny's birthday, is proof that
we're a special family and act in the spirit of good will, kindness
and altruism.
Sound like anyone we know?
It feels good knowing that we're helping the children. :goodvibes:
Thank you Part-Time-Poet and Theresa and everyone that
helped make this Birthday Project a grand success!
