It is an honor and privilege to belong to such a compasionate and caring organization. I am so proud of everyone here on the Zone. I feel so good about contributing to such a worthy cause in Johnny's name, he will be greatly touched and so will the kids and families in Wisconsin. Thanks so much PTP for putting this all together.

Congratulations to all the Zoners who have contributed and made this the best birthday celebration in Johnny's honor yet! I will be sleeping on :cloud9: tonight, knowing my small contribution combined with everyone else's, has made a big difference in helping needy children and their families.
Yes, we're headed for an all-time Zone record, heidi1. Last year we raised $5,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital, and we've already equaled that this year.

Zoners have very big hearts . . . I know for most of us, money is tighter this year because the cost of living has risen much faster than our salaries. That makes this gift even more special.

That is so exciting to hear, Part-Time Poet! Thanks so much to you for your contribution on organizing and keeping track of this project.

I believe that this is the shortest time period too, that the Zone has raised so much money so quickly for Johnny's Birthday Project! Zoners are truly an amazing group of people, and a force to be reckoned with!!!

A tip of the hat to you, fellow Zoners! :hatsoff: You are proof that :angel: :angel: :angel: are here on earth!

I donated to the Los Angeles Childrens Hospital for many years through my work where we pooled our donations. After I retired, I missed the opportunity to help the "little ones" and did some "charity work" on my own. Since I have found the Zone, I have been delighted to once again be able to pool my resources with others and together make a REAL difference in the lives of children. Thank you for giving us this opportunity and many blessings to you for the joy you give us, the little ones, and Johnny. :loveshower: :worldhug:
I have nothing to do and all day to do it in.

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.
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."
Awesome! I plan on donating on the Big Day as well !
