Day 1 was epic and incredibly emotional. I am overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity that has been shown to me.
Within 4 hours of launch, nearly $3500 had been raised! I was particularly moved by a donation from a professional violinist whom I have never met before and a whopping $2503 contribution from one of my former students in Los Angeles. Wonderfully enough, the perk that was selected was a year of Skype lessons, and I am looking forward to fulfilling it!
As of the time of posting, $3995 had been raised. That means $11,005 remains, putting the per-day goal at an average of $314.
Huge love goes to day 1 sponsors:
Lisa Bartholow Hanson
and the 5 wonderful Anonymous contributors.
I do not take any donation for granted, and I thank every one of you who has donated, forwarded a link, shared a status or retweeted my plea.

Next week: a video of Henri! For today, this is a picture looking straight down his extravagantly curved face.
You deserve all of this. And more.
I am really touched by that. Thank you.
