A reminder about private messages from John. They're not John!
Please don't be fooled by fake Facebook and other accounts pretending to be John. If someone in online chats tells you they are John, they are lying to you. John has an official Facebook page, plus Twitter and other social media (see links below). He replies at random to some of the posts from his fans when he's able to, and does occasional Q&As.
A request from John
Many of you have given John gifts over the years, and although he appreciates your thoughtfulness, he's running out of space to keep them! Rather than buying him a gift, he would ask you to support one of his chosen charities.
All donations, large or small, will help these wonderful organisations.
