I hope, however, that it's still possible to donate anonimously. I never donate money to any cause if that implies having one's name on a list of benefactors. It's just a personal thing. With the past projects having one's name added to the message attached to the gift was optional. :-? Yes, Anna -...

Thank you for sharing the letter from Johnny, and for your oh-so-very-adequate words, Natalie.

It is a privilege to be a fan of this wonderful, thoughtful, considerate man, and an honor to be a part of this extremely generous community. I treasure both.

I'm sad to say this thread has lost its focus. Instead of happiness at the generosity of the Zone community, it has turned into a thinly-veiled debate on whether or not Johnny should be notified. Part-Time Poet will do what she feels is the right thing to do, and we know she won't do anything that ...
