George's Summer String Camp

$470 of $450 goal

Raised by 9 people in 41 months
To say that George is "musical" is to say that the sun is "warm." From the moment he wakes until the minute he goes to bed, he's drumming, singing, humming. I've never had to remind him to practice his cello; he voluntarily carries it back and forth to school, five days a week, in order to do extra orchestra practice.

He loves it. He's good at it. And we have a chance to encourage his talent even more.

George has the opportunity to attend String Camp at Baldwin Wallace University  this summer. String Camp costs $450 for a five-day camp as a commuter (resident camp is $525) and we are hoping to receive a $100 from the Fairview Music Association to help defray costs. Any money raised over his camp fee will be put toward private cello lessons.

Here's a video of Geo playing his favorite piece, Etude. He still needs some practice on Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suite #1 , but he's working on mastering that next.

We have a matching donor! But there's a catch...

George received a letter from a donor who is willing to match funds, up to $125. But here's the catch: this donor is matching what George earns by working.

We've created a list of extra chores that George can do to earn money towards his camp (washing the cars, washing the window screens, stacking firewood, cleaning the basement, etc.) Each chore has a dollar value. His donor will match each dollar he earns completing those chores.

I love this! It makes George an investor in his own success, and enables him to see the benefit of the work of his own hands.

He's already started on the list (his dad's van is the cleanest it's been since September!) and is asking neighbors if they have jobs he can do to earn money.

What an excellent way to motivate him!
