Dear Jason, Sherry, and Jimmy,
I just wanted to thank each of you again for all that you have done for my daughter, giving her one of the most memorable summer experiences of her life. All she can talk about is how she misses getting up early for camp (and this is a girl who does not wake up easily!), seeing everyone, playing and singing, etc. She has it in her mind that she wants to join a band now, and I don’t blame her!
In addition, I was genuinely touched by how your collective efforts with these kids have so much impact. As you can imagine, being on a bus, hotels, gigs and restaurants for four days with that crew gave me a lot of time to talk to many of the campers. Over and over, I heard how much the camp and tour meant to them, how it made them feel special, gave them new goals, new friendships, and new confidence in themselves. And in some cases, your efforts gave them a place to contribute back after graduating, and give them a place to go where they feel they belong. It’s not often, unfortunately, that our work as adults provides such impact to kids who are not our own. Your passion and commitment is truly admirable, and I know that each student on the tour has benefited from your work.
I also enjoyed meeting the other kids and the other parents on the trip. I hope that our paths continue to cross. Thanks again for a great experience.
