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.

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!
