Being one of those fortunate individuals doing well in hard times, I consider it my privilege to be able to contrubute to those in need. But I am very, very choosy about how I do it. I am a Rotarian and most of my contributions go through the amazing Rotary Foundation that responds to immediate emergency needs in astounding time and manner with their Shelter Box program and many other ways, without spending a single dollar on administration.
In addition, having been a Zoner nearly from the beginning, it has been a real treat to contribute to the annual bithday projects. And to have Johnny recognize those contributions and respond as he has the last few years, is just icing on the cake. I have to believe that there is no other web site devoted to a performer, that achieves the visibility and attention of that performer, like we have here at the Zone. It is also my strong belief that this is the result of the genuine respect shown to Johnny by this site, as well as the birthday projects that have earned his personal recognition.
May we always retain that respect and continue supporting causes near and dear to his heart as well as our own. I congratulate all Zoners, not only for what we give in dollars, but what we give in spirit, respect and love to both Johnny and to each other.
