Violin and Lessons for Christian B.

My mission is to help a dear, sweet friend of mine, named Christian Buchanan, get a violin and violin lessons. 
Christian is a 6 year old boy that was born with Tessier Cleft Lip and Palate. Due to the severity of his condition, Christian is also blind, as his eyeballs never developed. 

Christian is a VERY talented little guy whose ear for music is AMAZING! He is a natural! What he wants more than anything right now is his very own violin! 
Christian's wonderful mother, Lacey, dedicates all of her time to caring for Christian and his little brother Chandler. His father works hard to support them all. 
As we all know, raising children is expensive....especially when they have special needs. 
So I'd love if we could pull together and help out this amazing little family, by helping to get Christian his very own violin as well as a year's worth of lessons! Pictured is Christian holding a violin when we had him measured. We need to know what size of violin he would need. He was so excited! 

I truly believe the violin would be a perfect instrument for Christian. He learns everything by listening, vibrations and touch. All of these things apply to playing a violin. He can hear, and feel the music. The vibrations made as the bow crosses the strings, the feel of the strings along the neck and the tension of the strings as he uses his fingers to make each note. And of course....the amazing sound. 
Christian records everything with a little voice he would probably record his lessons so he can practice at home! 

Please help me make this little future musician's dream come true!
