Landfill Harmonic: The Recycled Orchestra

Landfill Harmonic
Last December, I shared the story of Landfill Harmonic with you. It is the beautiful and true story of 20 children living in the Paraguayan slum of Cateura. I posted the inspiring video of how they are collecting trash from the landfill to create musical instruments and have created their own Recycled Orchestra. And I told you that Landfill Harmonic is an upcoming feature-length documentary hoping to finish production this year.

A heartfelt & moving story of how instruments 
made from recycled trash 
bring hope to children 
whose future is otherwise spiritless.

Well, they have moved their fundraising to the Kickstarter platform and have already raised over $147,500 of their $175,000 goal. They only have 20 days left to finish raising the money, or their wonderful project will not be funded.

Of course, you know that I am going to promote and support this inspiring film simply because of the ingenuity of the community, as well as the hope and proof it provides that children can and will succeed if given the right motivation and support. Bravo to the family, friends, and teachers who work to make these children's dreams come alive despite their circumstances.

If you'd like to join me in supporting Landfill Harmonic, you can read all about their project, watch the trailer, and donate here.

Un abrazo!

    1. Gracias, Maria! Si todo el mundo donarían un dólar, ellos probablemente completarían su proyecto.
