Donations Given in Celebration of a Birthday

Have you found it difficult to answer the question, “What do you want for your birthday?” One of our team members came up with a brilliant solution to that dilemma! She decided to celebrate her 40th by using Facebook’s fundraising feature. She set her goal at $200 and was delighted and surprised to realize that over $600 was raised! She designated the funds for a special project that will help SWAN manage our program’s details, enabling us to serve more children. “I am honored and grateful to everyone who helped make my birthday celebration special by giving to this amazing cause. Smiles on children’s faces are the best kinds of gifts.”

Children Become SWAN Heroes

When Valotta Music Studio’s owner, Nadine Valotta-Badasarian, heard about SWAN’s mission and the vulnerable children we serve, she saw an opportunity to teach life skills to her music students. In doing so, she taught them how to be heroes. Each Valotta student was taught how to give a home recital for the purpose of raising funds for SWAN. The children learned their music and invited relatives and friends to their homes. They faced their fears and performed. Twelve children participated in the challenge and raised over $550.

Here is what Sam had to say about his SWAN Concert Challenge, “I was very nervous to play in front of a group of people but I didn’t care because I knew it would help other kids get music lessons like I do
