      Thank you so much for everything you are doing for the "Grand Orchestre Septentrional" and Haiti. On Sunday night I was worrying we were not going to make it. Thanks God we did it. Thanks to all of you.

      From way back South, in Argentina, I'm also crossing my fingers, and I raised my pledge. As Ruth said, if we all add maybe 5$ each we'll make it. How exciting to be part of things like this!

      Wouldn't it be a little over $10 more from each of your backers to get you over the top?
      C'mon everyone!

      Wow! Less than 4 grand to go. I bet there are a lot of backers like me, watching the clock and ready to kick in more if needed to get you to goal.
      You're going to make it, Mr. Dow.

      This film needs to be seen, indeed!! It fosters compassion and respect for the people of Haiti and moves us beyond pity and a feeling of helplessness related to their history and recent events.

      The screening at the New Hampshire Film Festival was wonderful. I love the way the film weaves together the music and history, it's so engaging! Best of luck with your fundraising, this is a film that deserves the widest audience, it's of universal importance.

      Don't worry! When the Drum Is Beating s a great film, and will be well received, especially in Haiti. People always put politics aside for good music and a GREAT story!

      WHEN THE DRUM IS BEATING is a film I deeply support and love, and hope to see this story extended to broader audiences.

      Rock on Whitney!
