Well that certainly made my day!

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.


Well said!!

A beautiful letter from a beautiful man. Just lovely. :loveshower:


It's certainly heartwarming, isn't it? :smiliewithhearts:

I'm always amazed that Johnny can find the time to write to us, and to give a donation to Mercy Corps is such a touching gesture. It's clear how much he loves Japan and cares about the people there. :japan:

I agree PtP, that's what makes the letter so very, very special. The fact that he took time out of his very busy life to just drop us a line to say thanks.
It means so much :heart2: :heart2:

Today I received a very nice letter from Mercy Corps regarding Johnny's donation. Although the letter is addressed to me, since I was the one who set up the fundraising page, the contents are for all of the members of the Zone...for a birthday project well done!

Hello Theresa,

I work closely with Minda Seibert, who I believe you've been in contact with regarding your awesome Johnny Depp Zone fundraising efforts for Japan. Your group has done outstanding work for Mercy Corps, and we are continually grateful!

It's my great pleasure to inform you that Johnny Depp has made a generous donation to Japan "in honor of the efforts of The Johnny Depp Zone." Thank you so much for helping connect Johnny with Mercy Corps! The office is abuzz with the news, and we've been so excited to let you and the group know. This is an amazing development!

We unfortunately can't give many more details due to donor confidentiality, but you can rest assured that this gift was a very welcome boost to our relief work. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions about our work in Japan or in other tough places around the world.

Thank you again, Theresa, for all you've done to fundraise with The Johnny Depp Zone and for helping provide an avenue for even more contributions...from the man himself! We are thrilled to have your community as part of our circle.

Best wishes,
Carlene

Theresa, WOW! That's a lovely letter and wonderful news that Johnny came through as promised and so quickly. It's beyond amazing and endearing that he mentioned us. I can just imagine how excited the Mercy Corps office was! And thank you and PTP for your continuing efforts to honor Johnny with such inspiring and worthwhile projects. I'm proud to be a small part of this community effort. :applause2:

And Johnny, you're a person beyond words. I salute you and thank you.

Wow. :thud:

What a beautiful gesture. Johnny never ceases to amaze me. I wish I could be eloquent about this, but it's so stunning that I can't find words.

What a great guy.

That is a truly wondrous thing. Theresa, Part-Time-Poet and Johnny, you have together created a magical reunion of wishes, resources and hopes. The Mercy Corps is the blessed beneficiary who can now go out and really change lives.
I love you all.

You're a good pirate, Mr, Depp, and a good man!!

You continue to inspire me.

Again, thanks PtP and Theresa for their hard work in bringing this all about.
