Although Johnny’s birthday is June 9th, we will be accepting donations throughout the month of June for his gift. We understand that your wallets may be a bit tapped out right now because, ahem, you have been spending your money at the movie theater seeing a certain pirate flick. Understandable!

:-/ So true, so true! Not to mention all the 'Pirate' stuff! :blush: Thanks, ptp, GREAT IDEA :idea: and thanks for the extension through June!
I'll be sending in a donation soon; I'm thinking at least $44.00 the first time. A dollar a year for each year that precious man has been on this planet! :cool:

Wonderful idea ptp. Cant believe its been a year since the last Birthday Project.

Ok I'm a dunce :dunce: can any one straighten this out for me.
If I make a payment via the paypal account will the money be converted into dollars first and then be reconverted back to pounds for GOSH? or is it just a straight debit from my account? Does anyone (Bank/paypal) charge commission on it?. Basically I'm asking is there any benifit in paying a direct cheque as opposed to via paypal. I want to get the most benefit to the project in my payment.

Fabulous idea. I made a donation to them right after Lily-Rose's illness, and they sent me a wonderful thank you. Such a great idea. Thank you for letting us all be a part of it.

Happy to have made my donation to this great Birthday Project! I know this is a cause so very close to Johnny's heart and I'm sure he will feel very proud to have inspired this wonderful and worthwhile donation.

Happy Birthday Johnny!

This is exciting...sent my donation in...thanks again Ptp for the paypal account.

Johnny will be very happy I think...and the zoners are a wonderful bunch of fans, he would be proud of us to make his birthday a day of giving to others.

Another thank you to the Admins and Mods, who make this always a place where Johnny can be admired, enjoyed and respected...
