Everyone here at JDR thinks that it's time for us to celebrate the many different ways that Johnny has shown his caring and appreciation to fans, as well as helping bring attention to charitable and non-profit groups that could use some help and funding.

SO that's what will be posted in this new forum.

Help us out, if you remember a charitable act or kindness that he's done over the years. please post a link to the article. As well as a kindness towards fan, visits to hospitals, schools, etc. Please link to it here.

Thanks!!

What a great idea Karen! I found this organization, Donate for a Mate--apparently Johnny participated with them while filming POTC in Australia. Here's a FB link of about 10 pics:

Remember this group? I still wear my bracelet that says "Get in and get you hair wet". Seven years ago The Kid lost a young friend to cancer that she adored and looked up to, so this group is close to my heart.

The always humble, always sincere Johnny speaks about Jack Sparrow and why he still visits kids in schools and hospitals.

In case anyone doesn't know, Johnny travels with a Capt Jack Sparrow costume so he is always ready for the good Captain to pay anyone a visit.

I remember the bracelets as well! And also how Johnny has been visiting kids in hospitals for several years, and often out of the eyes of the press. He doesn't sell the pics or call the media to let them know he'll be there. He is someone that truly cares about others....

And remember the time Johnny recorded his voice for This American Life to help a young man with SMA . If you didn't see it or hear about it, read & watch the video below:

The fact he doesn't hesitate to help others, is another example of his big heart...

He doesn't broadcast any of his visits or his charity donations either like some stars.

He has a beautiful soul and a heart of gold. I love this guy !

I don't even recall this one, but it's very sweet. This one took place when the first AIW came out:

The full story is at the link, but just a couple of parts that again, show Johnny's big heart.

"After anxiously waiting, Colleen said the two had “the shock of our lives.” Not only did Depp walk out, but he was accompanied by film director Tim Burton, who was responsible for directing “Alice and Wonderland.”

The Make-A-Wish group was given the opportunity to ask Depp and Burton questions, and Courtney said Depp joked about how the group’s questions were so much better than the media’s, who he had been speaking with about his new film for several days.

After the group meeting, both Burton and Depp shared time with each individual. Courtney met Burton before meeting her Make-A-Wish choice.
“Tim Burton … that was great,” said Courtney. “I was more nervous about meeting him. I asked him questions about animation, and every time I asked a question, I thought I sounded so stupid.”

But it was Depp, the big Hollywood actor, who put the teenager at ease.
“He’s so down-to-earth,” said Courtney of Depp. “He acts like he doesn’t know he’s a gigantic movie star.”

Courtney said she feels Depp isn’t real personable in his movies, but in real life, he acts like an average guy.

“He looks so different in person – so much younger than I thought he would look,” said Courtney. “I was expecting this bummed-out hippie guy, but he just looked like a normal guy.”

After talking with Depp, Courtney realized the two shared a common interest – music. Both Courtney and Depp play the guitar. The movie star even talked a little about his own family to the star-struck teenager."

The full story is very sweet, so check out the link:

Very true; and when media is involved, it's not because the story was sold to them; media was alerted through other sources wink.gif
