GoFundMe For A Lurker's Son
« on: March 04, 2016, 12:00:46 PM »
Hello. My son has been accepted to IUP, into their prestigious music program. He is one of only 8 trumpets accepted. He wishes to be a music teacher, so he can share the happiness and fulfillment he received as a student. I am proud of him, and find this a noble pursuit.

The one piece of advice he was given by the professor at his audition was to "buy a professional grade trumpet". We have purchased his previous trumpets for a few hundred dollars off of eBay, when I was working.

I had surgery in January, and have been unable to work since then.  My wife is holding two jobs to make ends meet, but there isn't a lot left over.

We have started a "GoFundMe", in the hopes of raising money to help us purchase a professional trumpet for him.  We know nothing of trumpets, but he has the advice of his teachers, the professor at IUP, and is using his knowledge of trumpets. He is not greedy, and knows the value of a dollar, and status symbols mean nothing to him.  He just wants/needs an upgraded trumpet so he can do well at college in his chosen field.

Any donation is very much appreciated.
