I have wondered about that, too. I'm not sure he does understand the degree to which he is the impetus for our good works. Maybe he's too modest to see that. :blush:

Thanks Natalie, for sharing this with us.
And thank you Johnny.

:goodvibes: :goodvibes:


Sharing such a wonderful letter from Johnny Depp is a joy. I'm very happy to be able to bring it to you.

And :thanks!: to JD a thousand times over, for his great kindness and inspiring example.

part-time poet wrote: A lot of work goes into the Birthday Project, but the rewards are sublime. We raised enough money to provide 296 birthday parties for hospitalized children--that's more than 24 celebrations a month for a whole year! That's a lot of happy people whose pleasure was made possible by Johnny Depp.

Or our donation could provide schoolbooks and supplies for 148 young patients who wanted to keep up with their studies while they were in the hospital.

Or we could provide meals for (hold on to your hat) 1,440 family members who wanted to stay in their child's room for lunch or dinner rather than leave for the cafeteria.

That's a lot of day-to-day good done in Johnny's name. A lot of comfort. And it makes me very proud of the Zone--of all of you.

These examples of what this amount of money can be used for makes it all more concrete. Thanks for that, PtP, that was very enlightening! :cool:

Well I must be going completely barmy - I remember reading that letter and honestly thought I'd replied here, but I can't find a post from me unless I missed it! :bawl: Perhaps I was just too overwhelmed at the time to do anything :perplexed: :lol: It's so beautiful and humble, Johnny really is just a wonderful guy with such a big heart... :cloud9: And that video is awesome, I'm SURE he's referring to the Zone! :heart2: :heart: :goodvibes:

Thank you so much, Johnny and Johnny Depp Zone :thanks!: :grouphug:
* So...directly from the beautiful lips of Johnny Depp - THANK YOU VERY MUCH, Johnny Depp Zone! *

Johnny's thank you was as breath takingly beautiful, as is he. I am so happy and proud to have played a small part in Johnny's Birthday project, I am almost speechless. By this, maybe he really does know how much he inspires us all.
I also want to say Thank you to Part Time Poet & the Zone for giving all of us this opportunity to help so many others, especially in Johnny's name. You are absolutely amazing yourself!

I am overwhelmed at this point.
We all contributed a little which combined, amounted to a lot of help for those in need. I appreciate Johnny taking the time to send such a gracious Thank you letter, I'm not even expressing myself very well......

Thank you Johnny for being who you are, you are so loved. You are a such gracious humble person. We appreciate you everyday!! I am overwhelmed at this point.

God Bless you Johnny and you're family. Love to you all always.

PTP, thank you for listing how many ways the contribution will help. When I read those details.......all I can say is WOW! I try to help.....not often do you know how it really will be used and you feel somewhat removed from the cause you are trying to be a part of. Not here. Sincerely, thank you. I am so moved.

this is the first I am hearing this :blush:
I am just curious when/where he said that and what would he prefer
we identify ourselves as? I want more than anything to do
what Johnny wants....thank you :angel:

"Hate" may have been too strong of a word, DeboraZane....I don't want to stray too far off the topic, but FYI -- here's the AOL Unscripted video clip where Johnny talks about fans.



:-O I'd never watched this before. OF COURSE he is talking about us!!!! It's so obvious!! :goodvibes: :goodvibes: :goodvibes: :goodvibes: Everytime I read the thank you letter I get teary-eyed all over again :bawl:

:cloud9: Johnny's acknowledgment is just the icing on the cake! What a moving and thoughtful letter--to think that he said that we inspire him with our kindness! His humility and thoughtfulness know no bounds...

Hugs all around!!!!

I am new to this site, so I was not able to get involved with this wonderful project. How delightful to hear from the man himself. Johnny has such a beautiful soul and that is why I love him so much. And what a sweet letter! That fact that he took time out of his busy schedule to thank all of you for the magnificent donation does not surprise me. He will always make time for those he cares about. WOW..he never ceases to amaze me!! I love you Johnny~ :love:

Hugs,,Susan
