“Aim for the moon.
Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
Like us, you might have heard this quote a few times before… We kept running into it last month, when we announced our goal to raise € 25.000 during the month of June.
Even in ‘normal’ times this would have been a big goal. The campaign, leading up to Worldwide Music Day’s seven hour music marathon, brought in about € 10.000 from friends all around the world. We are deeply grateful for this great show of support, given the uncertain times we live in.
We also had to conclude that we had aimed too high.
But on the final day of the campaign, friends reached out from ‘Children at the Sea’, an arts project for children in asylum seekers centers in North Holland. Their program had ended, and they wanted to donate their remaining funds to Musicians Without Borders. The amount was € 15,000 – and so, against all odds, we reached our goal!
Thanks to all donations, we won’t have to put our work on hold. We can continue meeting with our young participants online, we can prepare new programs with our partners, and we can find new ways to keep the music playing.
Let’s keep reaching for the sky, setting our goals high, and find out where dreaming big gets us.
Thank you so much for your support!
