As some of you may have heard, Jane Henderson, HeadCount’s Director of Artist Relations, was among those seriously injured in the incident at SXSW last week.
The good news is that despite 3 broken vertebrae, Jane has been released from the hospital. While her recovery will be long and difficult, we feel blessed that there was no damage to her spinal cord and she will eventually recover fully.
Her spirits — and ours — have been lifted by the incredible outpouring of support from our friends and partners. Our board member Bob Weir even dedicated “Queen Jane Approximately” to Jane at a RatDog concert Friday night. And, one of our volunteers set up a fund for Jane’s recovery that’s already near half its goal.

Many of you have been on emails with Jane or worked with her directly. If you’ve had the chance to meet her in person, you know she is a powerhouse young professional whose sincerity, dedication and sense of humor come across in every interaction
We greatly appreciate the support, and Jane does too!
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there
