Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! 

Please help me support OpSAFE International by making a tax-deductible donation through my Sing for America fundraising page. The process is fast, easy, and secure.

OpSAFE International is a non-profit organization that was founded by Jonathan Wilson with the vision of providing psychosocial support to children and families who have experienced mass trauma such as war, flood, earthquake, and tsunami. OpSAFE has already reached out to over 40,000 children in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Japan, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, and Ukraine. I met Jonathan, who also founded CRASH Japan, when I volunteered to join their team in Ichinoseki, Japan in the summer of 2012, in response to the March 11, 2011 triple disaster in the Tohoku area. Jonathan’s vision to train and support the local churches to be ready to respond effectively in times of crisis was proven effective. Since he shifted his energy to develop OpSAFE, OpSAFE's vision to work in partnership with local churches has been assuring lasting influence on children who need care at their own pace. 

Between now and April, I’ll be rehearsing with the Sing for America Chorus for our Annual Benefit Concert at 7 p.m. on April 7, 2024, at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Our Gala Concert this year "De Terra ad Astra (from the Earth to the Stars)" features guest emcee Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) and Livingston Taylor.

I hope you will be able to attend our Gala Benefit Concert on April 7. Please use the code "SFA146" in the coupon box at City Box Office for a $10 discount off the $45 ticket price and your purchase of the ticket will be also donated to OpSAFEHere is the link to BUY TICKETS

Even if you can't donate right now, you can help me reach my fundraising goal by sharing this page on social media or email. Please use the link showing on the right side of this page.

Thanks so much for your support!

Together, we can make a difference.
