In the fall of 2019 while dropping off a donation of footwear from Nike to a shelter, I met a 12 years old boy named David, he asked me “can you bring a violin next time”? He had shared with me it's his favorite instrument, and his dream is to sing and make people happy with his music. I later learned that his interest in the instrument came when visiting a friend’s house in Kent Washington.
Aware of their living situation and economical status, I did not know how we were going to secure this instrument for him. With Mom’s permission I began reaching out to a church member in the music industry with this story, who told me do not worry, we are going to make this happen.
Weeks later, she was able to secure a violin and a carrying case.
"Life is not measured by what we own, but how we give" We were happy to be a part of David’s dream and look forward to making more dreams come true.
Finally, once in a while if the timing is right before school starts, I get to see David carrying his violin with a huge smile on his face heading off to practice.
