My son Zakari is part of a Grammy Award winning Marching Band. This year they have been invited to march in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C! This is such an honor for these kids, and they are all so excited.

Here is my problem: The cost per kid is about $1600. The Band Boosters are fundraising to try to defray the cost as much as possible. Parents are responsible for the rest. They are asking for a deposit, and monthly payments that I just do not have. I am so scared that I will have to tell my son he can't go because I just cannot afford it. This is a lot of money. On top of the trip costs, there is also insurance, and money needed for meals.

As a single mom of 4 kids, I am on a very limited budget. My parents are helping as much as they can, and so is Zaks dad, but this still is an overwhelming amount that we need to come up with.

If you can find it in your heart to help us out in any way at all.... we would be so greatful.

If by any chance at all, we exceed the set goal.... the remainder would be donated to the Grizzly Band to help offset the costs for the group. Thank you for reading this.
