Re: Fantastic news! A thank-you letter from Johnny Depp!

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 ...

Re: Fantastic news! A thank-you letter from Johnny Depp!

How wonderful! This community is an amazing place I think. We come together and share our love of a person's work. We end up learning all kinds of things we might have missed, and before you know it we are looking far beyond ourselves. It's one thing to be a world famous actor. It's quite another to...

Re: Announcing the Zone's 2011 Birthday Project for MercyCorps--Unite for Japan!

Can anyone tell me how much you need to hit $6,000? docplacer: go to the first post of this thread, click on the donate link and you'll see at the bottom that we've raised about $5400 so far. I would check with PtP or Theresa about the exact number because we also receive donations 'not' through Pa...

Re: Birthday Project 2011--Mercy Corps: Our Work in Japan

Wow, the above post sent chills through me. How very wise they are to define limits, to protect their children. I think all of us remain staggered by what happened in Japan, the sheer enormity of the disaster remains impossible to grasp. Such parallels here to our tornado devastations, and then the ...

Love hearing about how the culture in Japan is helping them come to terms with this massive ...

Re: Announcing the Zone's 2011 Birthday Project for MercyCorps--Unite for Japan!

Couldn't be a more worthwhile choice for this year's birthday project honoring Johnny Depp. Prior to my current career I worked in the field of international development for over 25 years and it's a small community, you get to know who does good work and who just spends people's money, and MercyCorp...
