100 The fundraising was an enormous success, thanks to the many members of Giza Death Star and subscribers of The Solari Report who made it so, including the lead match do- nors who, at each phase, sent a strong signal that inspired wider support. Our full accounting is on the crowdfund website. We raised $33,869.48 from 137 do- nors and enjoyed one dinner in Oklahoma and a lunch in Kentucky. Many members and subscribers came from far and wide. Along the way, Kathy Churay managed our MailChimp and Jon Rappoport recorded an audio on the importance of music to bring us together in a higher mind. When we ordered the organ and paid the deposit, we expected Joseph’s organ to arrive in several months. Alas, our organ master ran into significant problems faced by a growing business. The delivery period stretched to over a year. Waiting was a painful process. The actual delivery was cancelled and rescheduled several times—wreaking havoc with the schedules of all involved. This was spiritual warfare! It per- suaded me, again, that something quite pow- erful was happening. Over the last two years, Joseph has given me several CDs of organ and harpsichord music and has introduced me to numerous composers and compositions. My travels through the cathedrals of Europe have offered me more opportunities to hear world-class organists play. These experiences have rein- vigorated and expanded my understanding of music and its healing powers. I never thought—when I suggested to Chuck and Joseph that we do a crowdfund for a digital pipe organ—that the journey would transform the way that I view the world and the importance and power of culture. As an investment banker, I have designed and led approximately $25 billion of transac- tions. Some involved financings that top Wall Street financiers opined could not be done, landing me on the front page of the top news- papers and in the top business magazines in the country. Some were critically important endeavors that helped me make an enormous difference in good institutions and good people’s lives. The Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Pipe Organ Crowdfund is the smallest “deal” I have ever done. However, of all the transactions I have created and closed in my life, not one has taught me more or touched me more deeply. I am profoundly grateful to the donors for their confidence in Joseph, Chuck, and me to “get ‘er done.” When I told the Solari team that we were going to do this, I underestimated the work that I would add to their plates. They did a tremendous job without complaint, capturing the wonder of this unique project. Our culture is rich with extraordinary intellectual and artistic creations from gener- ations of our ancestors, enriched by creations and contributions happening each day all around us. It is within our power to nurture both creator and creation. You are a creator—and now is a time to gather your power to create and also inspire the creators around you. You, too, have the power to lift up our field. On behalf of the Solari team, I wish you the joys of creation as we move through the final quarter of 2018 and into a new year— and a new chapter in our free and inspired lives!
