I noticed that Alice Tso's name was missing from the list of those helped. Oh dear.
FAN, according to Forgotten People's last post, it looks like Alice Tso is still on the list. In fact, there are seven people there now instead of the original five. Wonderful!

Oh good! Thanks, Theresa. Her condition and high hopes for the water touched me.

Re: Bonnie Whitesinger says Thank you on behalf of her mother Pauline Whitesinger

Unread post by Forgotten People » Mon Aug 27, 2012 4:04 pm

Dear Johnny Depp Zoners,

Greetings! My name is Bonnie Whitesinger. My mother is Pauline Whitesinger. We are from Black Mesa, Navajo Nation, AZ. I am thankful for the water systems that my mother will benefit. She has been without running water all her life. I am thankful for the Johnny Depp water systems. Please check out the link for a picture of my mother and the double kitchen sink cabinet being unloaded.

On behalf of my mother and my community, we want to invite Johnny Depp and the Zoners to come to our home for community gathering and ribbon cutting ceremony. We will share a photo diary of the Forgotten People so you can get to meet and know us.

Thank you for the invitation to your home, Bonnie. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that most Zoners don't live anywhere near Arizona, so we won't be able to be there in person. But we will surely be there with you all in spirit.

We are so very excited to know that your mother will be one of the sweet People who will receive a water system, thanks to our small donations and the hard work from the volunteers who will actually be installing the systems.

Bonnie, as Theresa has said we Zoners are scattered throughout the world so most of us don't live close enough to take up your invitation but I do hope that you will have some photos of the occasion that you will share :goodvibes:

:flower: Bonnie, I too wish I could accept your lovely invitation, but let me say that it is so good to hear from you and others that the water systems are being installed and that you all will benefit greatly from them. Bless you and if you could send photos, that would be lovely. :rose:

Re: Alice Tso's home make over - Never forgotten!

Unread post by Forgotten People » Tue Aug 28, 2012 7:00 pm

Greetings Johnny Depp Zoners,

Some of you were concerned that we forgot Alice Tso. Alice Tso is one of the people that got a Johnny Depp Zone water system to implement off - grid water systems with piped running water!

Alice lives in a 1-room house made of creosote soaked railroad ties in Grand Falls in the Navajo Nation. Here are some photos of her Home Make Over w handicap ramps.

Thank you Holten Church, Mesa Grande Academy, Jesse Rothstein, UC Berkeley Project Pueblo, and local folks for helping with Alice's home make over.

Thank you Grand Canyon Trust and USDA for her solar system. Installation is almost complete and soon Alice will be able to turn on her kitchen faucet and have lights.

:rose: Thank you for your concern :rose:
