THE STORY:

Murder ripped my friend's life apart. I want for one night to fill her world with magic. So I am hiring an orchestra to play a piece of music written just for her. I need money to hire the orchestra and to rent a venue. I’m trying to have the money raised before April. All I need is $20 from 100 people to get the $2000 to hire a small orchestra. 

I first met this friend 20 years ago when she was only 10 years old. She was extraordinarily kind, sweet, and cheerful. Two years ago, she discovered her mother stabbed to death. The prosecutor called it the most gruesome murder he'd ever seen. A few months after her mother was killed, she learned from the police that the man who murdered her mother was her own husband. He was later convicted. She has lost so much. Beauty has been ripped from her life.

I want to bring magic back into her life. I only know how to create magic through music. So I wrote a piece of orchestral music for her. I already contacted the orchestra and they said they are willing to do it. All I need now is the money to hire the orchestra and to rent the venue. I am asking for donations to make this possible – to transform her life into a fairy tale for one night.  Any leftover money not used for the performance will be given to my friend as a gift. 

Thank you.
