Harping for Harps is a fundraising initiative that began in 2014 to facilitate the purchase of student harps for music social projects in Brazil. To date, 5 harps have been donated and 2 new harp programmes have been established in the slums of Rio. In this campaign, the goal is to raise enough funds to cover the cost of a harp for another social project, supply music and harp strings as well as cover some of the extraordinary cost of transportation to take the harps to Brazil. Please click on Donate to see what a difference your donation can make! As a bit of a thank-you along the way, I'm going to be giving a short Facebook Live performance as we reach each $1000 level towards the $6000 goal. Take a look at the graphic below to see where we're at and please keep checking back. I'll announce when those performances will be so follow along on Facebook and Twitter and please share the campaign too! Let's have some fun as we help open a world of possibility for these kids in Brazil.

Dear Gianetta:
Such great work you continue to do.
I will continue to support you as I can. It is so grand and worthy of admiration.
Take Care

Jeremy

Thank-you very much, Jeremy for your continuing support. It’s easy to get discouraged sometimes so I really appreciate your words of encouragement.

I know Gianetta’s passion for the harp. She is so natural as a teacher and as a musician, and her enthusiasm is felt by everyone who meets her. Some of these kids have so little and this is a chance to make a difference in their lives. I hope we can get behind the project.

It really is incredible to be witness to the children’s discovery of so much potential in their lives! And it is only possible with the support of a community. Thank-you so much, Bill.
