Amazing! Johnny is truly an example of generosity, kindness and compassion for a world that is in such need. We hear of so many wrong people doing hurtful things in the world, but Johnny Depp is a very "right" person. It's a great honor to be a fan and to be part of the Zone. A blessing! Again, thanks to all who put this wonderful project together!

You know it's weird. It feels like we're all standing in this enormous room, a big circle of us all holding hands: the Zoners, Mr. Depp, Mercy Corps and the people we're reaching with our donations. Who know how our monies will touch some person, some child. We are all connected. Can't ask for more from life. :angel:

I'm absolutely stunned!! I don't know why I'm stunned....he said he was going to do it. But he really did it!!! I'm blown away!!! I think it's because I never dreamed that my measley donation (in light of all that is needed to help Japan) would ever inspire Johnny. This feels totally backwards. He inspires me....not the other way around! I'm amazed, I'm touched, and I'm deeply honored!

Thanks to all who were involved in this project! :heart:

Wow, to receive another letter from Johnny was already amazing, and now this, just wonderful. For us (oh :cloud9: .. to consider Johnny one of us :love: ), most of all for the people who are supported of course.
Thank you Theresa, thank you Johnny, thank you Mercy Corps for letting us know.
Just wonderful :lilyrose:

:lilyrose: Thank you Theresa for sharing with us this touching letter from Mercy Corps.
It's a source of pride and affirmation that acts of kindness, like the Johnny Depp Birthday Project, is accumulative. To quote an old saying, "What goes around, comes around" and it's certainly a good feeling knowing that we are all connected in kindhearted spirit and part of the same altruistic circle with Johnny.

:applause2: This is all so wonderful! Thanks to all who were able to donate this year and to the JDZ admins who orchestrated this years B-day project. Time and again Johnny shows us why we adore him so much. :loveshower: It's nice to play even just a small part in such a worthy cause and in the name of someone so talented, beautiful, and generous.

Thank you, Theresa and PTP, for being conduits of grace and mercy to so many lives and in honor of such an incredible humanitarian! What a privilege it has been to be a part of such an amazing community and global effort to reach out and help others alongside you all- and Johnny. It was very kind of you to share the letters from Johnny and Mercy Corps., and even though I'm sure folks would have given even if Johnny could/did not respond, it just shows even more what a thoughtful person he is because he did respond. Obviously his feelings for his fans are sincere and mutual! It's like you said, fireflydances, we are all working together (even if we find ourselves like the widow in the Widow's Mite story)-along with Johnny- to try and make this world a better place. May we never give up trying. :love:

I have to admit, I am not even a little bit surprised.

This is the man we admire and respect and his donation in response to ours just demonstrates one of the reasons we all feel that way. What produces that wonderful butterfly-in-the-belly feeling is the knowlege that Johnny has the Zone on his radar. He responded to the birthday project when we donated to GOSH as well, but this one seemed more personal.
Needless to say, this is one project that we have to keep going. Who knows what could happen in furture years!!!

I certainly got a kick out of the Mercy Corps letter - they seemed appropriately giddy over contact with "the main man!" Looks like JD-OCD has struck again!

What a moving letter! Depp never ceases to amaze.

"in honor of the efforts of The Johnny Depp Zone."


This is priceless, we donate in honor of Johnny and he donates in honor of us :lol:
isn't that just typical? what a guy :loveshower:

Thanks for sharing Theresa and thanks again for the Zone for making this possible and to all the zoners who donated.
