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 will be a detriment to the Zone.

Actually, when making a donation in someone's name, it is always proper to notify the person of the donation. The amount doesn't have to be mentioned, but if you are using that person's name, it is absolutely right to let them know. That makes this different from Johnny's situation. Johnny does not tell of his charitable donations because he is doing it himself, in his own name, and not in honor of someone else or in someone else's name. The Zone is not alerting the press or putting out public notice of our contributions, we are telling one man of a gift given in his honor and in his name. Period.

So while expressions of happiness on a project well-done are still more than welcome here, the debate is over.

Thank you --

I'd also like to give a big thank you to every member of the Zone.
Without you all, the birthday project would not have been the resounding success that it was.

I keep it simple Hurray for the $$ we raised together and if that makes a child happy than I am happy.

Thanks to all for sharing their ideas and for joining together to help GOSH.
