Donor CB writes: A good cause. My heart easily melts when children’s growth is concerned… If each one of us can only give $1000, even if ‘we cannot afford,’ then the goal is reached. Let’s think BIG!

Deneen, hearing Christine Steyer’s performance of the new aria “Red Is a Trick”, searched us out in order to send a generous check and wrote: I left Saturday with such a happy heart after hearing you sing! …Phenomenal!!!!

The text of “Red” comes directly from young people responding to gun violence in their neighborhoods. Be inspired when you hear it here.
