“Thank You” Letters – January 10th, 2011

The new year is in full swing and we’re excited about the prospects in the new year. We’re still climbing back after taking a hit from the economy in 2009 and 2010, so we’re asking for your donations, as well as your suggestions for new ways to raise funds. As you know from our site, we have a car donation program, as well as our “Raising Funds, Raising Voices” program. Our ultimate goal is to keep doing what we’re doing – bringing the healing power of music to sick kids all over the world – for many years to come. We bring these thank you letters to you each week to remind you of the recipients of our songs and of your generous donations. It’s really astounding that something as simple as donating a car could have such an impact on the lives of one or many sick children. Please take some time to read all of the letters we’ve posted to really see how much of a difference you are helping us make. And now, our letter of the day!
