Horn player Rudolf Diebetsberger decided not to stop performing when he retired from the Stuttgart Philharmonic. Instead, he chose to perform at street festivals, cafés, and private parties to raise money for aid projects in India and Bangladesh. Diebetsberger donated over 50,000 Euros in 2010, so he is doing well with his goal -- giving 100,000 Euros to Anderi-Hilfe. I think he's in the 70,000s now. Once he gets to 100,000, Mr. Diebetsberger will actually retire. I imagine that will be a very satisfying retirement!
