Over the past couple of days, some 50,000 of you have stopped by to watch a boys’ choir in Wuppertal enact an extraordinary video for International Children’s Day. Of these viewers, more than 600 have spent an extra minute and some of their money to donate to the International Children’s Fund by clicking the link beneath the video.
We have no idea how much money was donated. But, in an indifferent world, hundreds of you have shown concern for infant mortality – a concern that Gustav Mahler put at the heart of his first symphony (below). We are greatly moved by your compassion, and very, very pleased to have helped this important cause.
Here’s the link again, if you want to keep on giving: https://www.icfaid.com/pages/DonateNow
