Announcing the Zone’s 2010 Birthday Project!

One of the Zone’s favorite traditions is our annual birthday gift for Johnny Depp, called “The Birthday Project.” Each year we choose a charity which is connected to Johnny’s philanthropic interests–particularly his interest in helping children in need. We pool our modest contributions and make a Zone donation to a worthy cause in honor of Johnny Depp, as a way of celebrating and thanking Johnny for all the joy he has given us over the year.

This year, Haiti’s children desperately need our help. A massive earthquake struck the island nation on January 12th, killing 220,000 people and leaving more than a million homeless and hungry, many of them children. So the 2010 Birthday Project will benefit Save the Children’s Haiti Emergency Relief for Children!

Currently Save the Children has more than 800 staff members on the ground in Haiti. Since the earthquake, Save the Children has distributed food to more than a quarter of a million Haitians, provided access to clean water and sanitation facilities to more than 221,000 people, and provided classroom tents and supplies so 41 schools could reopen. You can read much more about Save the Children‘s work in Haiti on our 2010 Birthday Project forum.

The Zone has a dedicated Paypal account for contributions to the 2010 Birthday Project; if you would like to join in our gift, you can make a donation by visiting our 2010 Birthday Project Forum and scrolling down to the Paypal button. If you would like to donate by check to Save the Children, directions are directly below the Paypal button on the announcement post.

Let’s reach out to help children in Haiti, and say “Happy Birthday” and “Thank You” to Johnny Depp!
