This is my 14 year old daughter, Vivien. She's one of only 3 oboe players in the band at Parkview High School.

Vivien has incredible natural musical and artistic talent, works hard to help her band mates and academic decathalon team members out, volunteers her time to help disabled little kids ride horses at a therapeutic equine center, is in all honors classes, and plans to get her first job next year at the local vet.

She periodically also refuses to clean her room, rolls her eyes and displays teenage girl agnst. Hey, she's a freshman, not an angel! 

Anyway. Vivien has a chance to go to New York City with the band this year. Catch: it's expensive. Like $865 plus spending money for non-included things like lunches.

This wasn't going to be a problem except I lost a client early this year (which cut our annual income in half), and then the head gasket went on my car, and then the front suspension went on my car, and oh, I got diagnosed with diabetes this spring, and had major dental surgery this summer, and medical bills kind of drowned us...

So. We really want Vivi to get to go on this trip, because it's only an every other year trip for the high schoolers and they won't go to NYC again in this 4 year period and we put down a non-refundable deposit.

I have almost 200 friends on Facebook. Maybe half of you know me fairly well, if not in person, then we've established a decent rapport online. I kow a lot of you are just as broke as I am. If you can send Vivien a dollar, that'd be awesome. If you can send $5 or $10, that's amazeballs. More - well, I'll write you a rant on the topic of your choice (folks seem to like my rants).

If everyone on my friends list sent $5 we've have this in the bag. That's how easy it could be. If you can help, we'd appreciate it - if not, I totally understand. Thanks, guys and gals.
