Benjamin’s Gift of Music has officially made its goal to raise $80,000 toward a music therapy program at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital! The hospital is set to open later this year in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
You made this possible!
Thank you to everyone who helped! A big thanks to all the wonderful people who organized a fundraiser. Thank you so much to everyone who gave a gift – of money or of a quilt. Thanks to everyone who spread the word. This was a big goal, and there were times we weren’t sure we’d get there. Looking back now at the heaps of generosity and kindness so many people have shown, I’m not sure why we ever doubted.
Someone would be very proud
If you knew Benjamin, you know exactly how tickled he would be right now. He loved music – and he also loved helping people, including fundraising for great causes. This music therapy program puts all those things together to help kids who are up against similar challenges to his. It would delight him.
I’m planning one more post – when the hospital opens and we get to see Benjamin’s Gift of Music in action. In the meantime, thank you so much for making this possible! It is a wonderful thing.
