Johnny Depp for helping the Dine with water.

Wonderful news! This year’s Johnny Depp Zone Birthday Project raised $7,750 for Project Pueblo to help the charity provide water systems for families in the Navajo Nation in Arizona.

Project Pueblo has been working with Forgotten People, a grassroots, community-based Navajo nonprofit organization, to help Navajo families living in the area known as the former Bennett Freeze, a 2 million acre region within the Navajo Indian reservation of 8000+ families where only 25% have adequate shelter and only 10% have running water. Now Project Pueblo and Forgotten People have delivered the water systems to their new owners, and they have been kind enough to share news and photos with us!

The Zone received the following message from Forgotten People: “Dear Johnny Depp Zoners, Thank you each and everyone of you and Johnny Depp for all your great work and compassion for water haulers in the Navajo Nation, AZ! We are the Forgotten People working with Project Pueblo to install safe drinking water systems.

Please check out all the photos on Facebook. The supplies are coming in and we are getting them prepped to go onsite for Project Pueblo’s arrival on 9/9. You are all awesome! Wishing you many Blessings and our appreciation, Forgotten People.”



You can see photos of the systems being delivered on the Forgotten People Facebook page HERE. Photos of the seven recipients of Zone water systems are HERE — what a joy to see their beautiful faces and to know that they will now have running water in their homes.

Zoners are thrilled to see the Birthday Project donations being put to work in the Navajo Nation; you can follow all the exciting developments HERE. Many thanks to Sean Wycliffe and mangodroplet of Project Pueblo and to Forgotten People for sharing the news with us!

Project Pueblo’s work is ongoing — there are many more families who need help. You can contribute to Project Pueblo HERE.

    I can't believe that it has come so far that people have no water... this is the most terrible thing that could ever happen to anyone, as our bodies are made of 90% of water... there is nothing we are more dependent on.

    I absolutely am excited by the arrival of water systems to help those that received them. Just over 7 thousand to purchase those systems and for Johnny Depp to allow his name to be used for this project is nice.....HOWEVER with the amount of money Mr Depp has been paid due to us his movie fans, I find myself upset with the amount given towards this. Sorry but having enough money to care for his current family and way of life, plus enough to care for many generations in his lifeline, I would have hoped a lot more from him would have been given. The mere fact that he is signed up for the 4th Pirates...movie would be incentive enough to help a lot more people needing life sustaining water, at least in my minds eye. I do appreciate all those that donated to this project many blessings will come their way.

    Johnny Depp did a great thing for my tribe. Some people may think $7750 is not enough, but he did more than enough for our tribe. He could've made his movie, bought a couple bracelets, & went on his way; but instead, he took interest in our problems & our troubles & went out his way donating money & time to get this program running & noticed. He doesn't have to donate his life saving to us, we're not a charity case. Thee Bennett Freeze families need that money more than the rest of Navajo Nation..so thank you Johnny Depp for your time & efforts, & for helping our cheíís & nalís.

    thank you johnny d. the sioux up pine ridge way are in great need also....thank you so much

  11. This is pretty cool, and I recognize the need for what it is in this matter, but I gotta be honest, when I saw the amount of money roused, my first reaction was: "$7, 750! Is that it?! That ain't gonna put a whole of pipes into folks homes!" Hell, Jonny Depp makes that kind of money in one hot minute when he's starring in films, and the like. I hope that there is more to the story, in fact, like maybe Depp matched every donated dollar with ten of his own, or whatever. Peace.

    I like what A Yazzie said. Help of any kind should not be looked down on and called "not enough" it's more than what was had before and that is enough.
