Since my divorce seven years ago, my children & I have been through some really tough times.

Despite all the challenges we have experienced I have tried to keep my children as stable as possible by keeping them in their schools with their friends & working hard so they can participate in the various activities that they love.


For my son this meant drum lessons…which I was only able to pay for, for a short time. Since that time he still loves playing drums & took percussion classes his last year in Middle school.


This past summer I emailed the Highschool Band Instructor & asked if there might be a way he could participate even though try outs were over & he has had only a little experience.


Well he was invited to come to practice the next day & the next thing I know he is on the drum-line playing the 5th Bass. He was ecstatic & I was so happy to see him excited about something. I mean really excited about something Big!


He is now part of something he loves, working as a team, with kids he admires who are helping him refine his skills & it has turned his world around.

He is a different kid & I have never seen him so happy. I dived in head first telling myself to just have faith…it will work out somehow….without thinking or knowing at first about any of the expenses because I wanted a confidence building experience such as this for him.


This coming Spring his band will be going to San Diego on tour to perform at festivals, various venues, visit historic sites, participate at Clinics at the local Universities & Colleges in Sand Diego.


He has never wanted anything so badly.


We have already been given a generous boost by a very kind family member to get us started but this is the remainder we need to come up with.

Anything over that as we continue to try other fundraisers will help him with food on the trip since they are only providing one meal per day or can be applied to another student who needs funds.


If you can find it in your heart to support him in this endeavor we will be so very grateful.


Thank you, April Elizabeth
