Just no words.... :thud:

Just one more of the many, many times that JD has rendered me weak-kneed and speechless.

Love him so much! :heart:

Wow, I'm speechless! That's just the cherry on the cake....it's been quite a week what with celebrating the Zone's 7th Birthday, 8 years since the release of COTB, OST exceeding 1 billion at the box office and now a letter from the man himself..... :smiliewithhearts: I'm overwhelmed....

Thanks to our great Zone Team :thanks!: for making the Birthday Project possible and thanks to all fellow zoners for their generous donations and last but most certainly not least a huge thanks to Johnny for taking the time to write us that gorgeous letter and for the love, generosity, and happiness that he inspires in all of us ...the Zone is a great testament to all that he stands for. :thanks:

Every time we get a letter from Johnny thanking us for doing the birthday project I get the most amazing feeling, my heart thuds and I get goosebumps all over. :goodvibes: :cloud9: :goodvibes: :cloud9:

As ItD says, the possibility that he pops in now and again to see what we're up to is also a lovely feeling. :goodvibes: :cloud9: :goodvibes: :cloud9:

A huge thank you :bouquet: to the moderaters for getting this project together so that is so easy for us to participate in celebrating Johnny's birthday.
What a beautiful letter from a beautiful human being I feel so special as we all do that the most famous star in the world would take time to thank us is beyond belief and also brought me to tears...and to just sign it Johnny took my breath away. :cloud9:

Touching, wonderful. What an honour and how sweet. Thank YOU Johnny :love:
(Love love it that he signs "Johnny" :loveshower: )
It is so sweet of him, isn't it?

Thinking of Johnny making a reciprocal donation to Mercy Corps is just so amazing. I really have no idea what to say to such a gesture. Absolutely mind-blowing.

To re-iterate what alot of you all have said, to receive a letter from Johnny personally is simply amazing. He is such a kind and gentle soul and to know that he follows the Birthday project is pretty darn heartwarming! I myself couldn't contribute financially due to my own financial problems, but it's awesome that he's contributing because of this site. He is, simply put, an amazing human being!! :applause2: :yahoo: :heart2: :smiliewithhearts:

I have said it before but will again...for anyone who was unable to give due to these hard financial times...a gift from one of us, is a gift from all of us!

We are a community. Always and forever!! :smiliewithhearts:

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.
