1st place at national festival for sponsored Altai throat-singer

Viktor and Carol

A week ago, I got an urgent e-mail from our Altai partner Svetlana. Viktor, one of our gifted young throat-singers had been invited to a national festival in St. Petersburg. It was his chance to shine.

Trouble was, he had no money for travel. I couldn't help personally because my own personal resources have long since been maxed out on this project; the need there is so great. Fortunately, donations made through GlobalGiving had just been disbursed, and we were able to send $130.

Yesterday, Svetlana e-mailed again. Viktor had placed first in the national contest and was on his way home by train. Photos are promised when he arrives back in Altai after the 3-day journey.

As you are doing you "joy-to-the world"s this year, please consider a recurring donation that will enable our young throat-singers to continue their schooling. Or maybe a generous year-end contribution to rebuild our Altai emergency funds.

Thank you for your continuing support.
