I got one also. At first I thought it might be spam but then I realized what it was and felt very special. :goodvibes: I had sent a personal check. Many thanks to all of you on the Zone for making this happen. :worldhug:

I received the email also, but I'd already been sent a hard copy letter via regular mail the first week in June. The letter is on official Foundation stationery and states the amount of the donation, but is otherwise the same wording as the email.

PTP - I have received thank you/acknowledgment letters from London and Madison as well, never an email. Just assumed it was because I always send personal checks, no paypal. This email is a first.

Yes, indeed it is very kind of them to send each one of us a thank you letter!
I am saving the hard copy I got in my snail-mail box for my tax files.
PTP, that's swell of you to take care of the Paypal fees! :hug:

I just received another e-mail from Sonia of De San Jorge. It is in Spanish so I cannot read it. Did anyone else receive this?

If this is not the correct place for this question - please correct.

I get emails from GOSH all the time. They are newsletter/request for donations type emails. Perhaps if you copy and paste the text here, somebody can tell you what it says.

I just received the same email. It appears to be an announcement for a benefit 5K race fund raiser. Here is the text; perhaps somebody could translate:

Sonia te invitó al evento '5K CORRIENDO POR PUERTO RICO A BENEFICIO DE SAN JORGE CHILDREN´S FOUNDATION Y EL CAP' en Red Internacional de Filantropía y el Tercer Sector.

You are right SD, it's an announcement for a race in Puerto Rico in order to raise funds for two foudations (San Jorge children's foundation and other one dedicated to oncology in children). The race will take place on august 23th and to take part in the race every runner has to pay 10$. :cool:
Hope they raise lots of money with this. :hope:

How very kind and generous of you Part-time Poet.... organizing the project is quite a daunting undertaking in and of itself, but to absorb the Paypal fees as well, is truly commendable.

God bless you... may your generosity be returned tenfold. :smiliewithhearts:


My sentiments exactly. Thank you for your time and generosity, Part-time Poet.

Same here. I received the hard copy in the mail already and I have also gotten hard copy letters from London and Madison. I don't do paypal either. Always personal checks. And, while I DID receive the e-mail that shadowydog posted, I did not receive an e-mail thankyou. :cool:

Thanks for the explanation, part-time poet. It's appreciated.
