There are only 17 hours left in Sasha’s fundraiser. In case you missed his story, Sasha is a 14 year old orphan. He lives in an orphanage in the Ukraine. He has been in an orphanage since he was 5 years old. While many of the children that come into care without some sort of disability are easily placed when they are that young, Sasha’s older sister decided she did not want to be adopted, and so Sasha couldn’t be, either (the government won’t separate siblings unless someone actively petitions for it, and there was no one to try for them!). By the time Sasha’s sister aged out (literally, at 17, they are sent away with just a small backpack full of things. Some go to trade school but most end up on the streets, either in sex or drug trafficking, or as criminals in general), Sasha was “too old” to be desirable to most people looking to adopt. 

Thankfully, Sasha’s orphanage participates in a hosting program, which gives these children a chance to come to the US, to live in a family setting, to get medical, dental, and vision care, to experience things they would never have the opportunity to experience, to learn a language that is extremely helpful to them in the long run, and, most of all, to find a family that will be accountable for them.

Now, MANY of these orphans, especially the older ones, don’t WANT to be adopted (like Sasha’s sister) for any number of reasons. But if they DO choose to be adopted, this is a great chance for them to find a forever family (either in their host family or with someone their host family knows). If they don’t, they at least have someone to be in contact with who cares about them who will call them, write them, send them things. It lets them know they are not invisible, that they are not worthless, that someone cares.

My IRL best friends are hosting Sasha. Of the hundreds of children available to be hosted, Sasha, of all things, wants to be a dog trainer, and, well, go figure, that’s what Megan and I do for a living. So Sasha will have a great opportunity to learn a little bit about what that looks like while he’s getting lots of TLC (whether he wants it or not!).

For just $5 (1 piece/$5), your name will go on the back of a piece of a puzzle (a dog puzzle! I’ll post a picture once we get started on it) for Sasha. The puzzle will go into a double-sided frame so we can all see how many people fought for this boy who has never had anyone fight for him before. Please consider making a small donation! There isn’t much time left!

We understand why Lea Michele released the version of Cannonball that she did. The song is an anthem, one that helped her deal with the loss of her boyfriend Cory Monteith. It’s all about picking yourself up and finding the strength to keep going and at the time it worked better as a power ballad with an intense bass and drum line backing Michele’s powerful vocals. However, the acoustic studio version of the song that she released on her YouTube channel today shows what could have been and we kind of wish it was what had been to begin with.

“Cannonball” was a great song, but it didn’t really sink in how great it was. It has a lot of raw emotion in it that Michele only brings to the acoustic. In the original song, it’s more about the beat and the music than the actual message. “Cannonball” is surprisingly versatile. It works on the level of being a musical motto to start your day with and it works on the level of being an emotional plea to yourself to find the courage and strength no matter how rough things might get.

The entire acoustic video is done in black and white and features Michele simply singing the song with others, smiling and laughing at points, and the whole effect is just so powerful.It says, “I’m a survivor. I’ve done what I do best: survive.” It says that she’s found, if not happiness, then at least a center of peace. It says so much more than her original music video, which mostly featured a heavily glammed up Michele alternating between angst and sexiness.

If you didn’t connect with the song when it originally premiered, this is the version of it to listen to. This is the version that really makes you feel just a small piece of the heartbreak that Michele was going through when she recorded it. This is the version to hope is included as a bonus track on the album.
