Birthday Project final weekend--an update

Just a reminder that this is the final weekend of the Zone's 2008 Birthday Project . . . we'll be wrapping up the charity campaign right after Johnny's birthday :cake: on Monday, and sending our donation to American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin.

Are you ready for some great news?

:yahoo: I am thrilled to announce that the 2008 Birthday Project has now raised $5,000 . . .
:yahoo: an amazing total given that the majority of us are, like the original Pirate Lords, skint-broke. But that shows what we can do when we come together as a community.

:hatsoff: We are now poised to make this year's campaign the most successful in the history of the Zone. :thanks!: so much to all of our generous donors! Your gift will help take care of hospitalized children and their families--it's a fine way to say :balloons: to Johnny Depp.

If you would like to join in the 2008 Birthday Project, it's not too late! Just check the announcements at the top of this forum for directions on how to donate.

Thanks again to all of you for your generosity. :worldhug: There is no better way to honor Johnny Depp than by comforting a child in distress.

May your birthday gift to Johnny bring you much joy in return.

:loveshower:

Thank you for the gentle reminder! I have been meaning to donate for weeks. The Pay Pal connection was so easy to use ... even I could do it.

Thank you, Johnny, for all the hours of enjoyment you have given me.

And a big thank you to The Zone!

I'm embarrassed I've put this off for so long - tendency to procrastinate. :blush: Taken care of now. :cool: Thanks so much PTP for the opportunity to unite with those who are like-minded not only in all things Johnny, but also in caring about children as he does. What a privilege! :worldhug:

A :loveshower: to everyone. It made me so happy to read about the latest total. You are all such nice people here on the Johnny Depp Zone and have such big hearts! I'm sure when Johnny hears about the donation made in honor of his birthday, it will give him a very :heart2: to know how much his fan's :love: him, and how much the donation will help his young friends in the American Family Children's Hospital in Wisconsin.

A special :hug: and a :kiss: to all of the people on the Zone who thought of such a great idea!

Wow! :bounce: How wonderful!!!
Thank you, Part-time Poet, for the great update.

By the way, may I ask a question?
(My apology if I missed any information.)

Untill exactly what time on Monday do you accept the donation?
I am up to place my second donation on Johnny's birthday.
As my Monday is almost your Sunday because of the time difference, but I was just wondering when I can do it.
Keep breathing.
Keep moving forward.
Be happy.

We'll keep the Birthday Project open all day (and night) Monday for those who wanted to wait until Johnny's birthday to give. Or like you, want to give another donation on his "day."
