Lynna Nguyen Photography

Happy Summer from Red Balloon!

This week, we have an exciting press release to announce with all of you! In the midst of all the excitement, Lynna Nguyen graciously did our summer photoshoot in time for the press release. Lynna is a young Bay Area photographer but don’t let her age fool you; she’s one of the most talented photographers we’ve worked with and has an innate gift for natural lighting to make the ordinary seem extraordinary. Her photos were a gift to Red Balloon so we are so thankful for her and will hopefully have her join our media team soon!

We’re back and refreshed from our six month absence! Thank you to all of our supporters for being so amazing and encouraging and we embark on our newest adventure. A couple things to look forward to:

The Aaden Project,
a branch project off of Red Balloon to increase minority representation in the national bone marrow registry. This is a partner project with The Asian American Donor Program and The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship

George Mark’s Children House,
the nation’s first pediatric palliative care located in San Leandro, CA. We’ve been in contact for a potential collaboration as they are developing their own music therapy programs for their patients

New Red Balloons benefits and clubs
across the nation including Wisconsin, New York, Texas and California

2011 Benefit Show
might find a new home in the Bay Area! Details will soon be revealed!

It’s a very big year for us. Although it’s different from what we had envisioned, we’re doing our best to be flexible and leaving behind a positive impact on the lives of children across the nation. Thank you all again for your love and support!

Vivanista is also having a video contest with Red Balloon in the running!

This video submission has been my personal dream for years. I decided it’s finally time to make this dream a reality. We’ll be saying goodbye to you at our November show, but saying hello to over 1000 pediatric patients in local children’s hospitals throughout Northen California. This is truly what I wanted Red Balloon to become.”
