This is 10 year old Velentino flanked by his school counselor, Ms. Garcia and his music teacher, Ms. Ramirez.
Velentino dreams of becoming a musician and with the help of The Wish List Project, he is on his way to making that dream come true. You see Velentino and his family are currently homeless, and paying for the costs associated with music lessons is not a priority right now. Keeping their family safe and fed are their most pressing concerns. But a young boy doesn't understand the realities of his circumstances, only that music makes him happy. And we want Velentino to be happy, so we were able to rent a saxophone for him to take lessons and join the school band. His teacher says he's "a natural" and we look forward to hearing Velentino play in his upcoming recital.
