Guys I really need your help, please read.

This year, my high school marching band has been invited to march to represent Maryland in the Pearl Harbor memorial parade in Hawaii. This is an extremely high honor for us, especially being such a small-town band and the only Maryland band to participate and be crowned champion in Bands of America competitions.

However, transporting instruments and almost 100 kids and chaperones is going to cost about $150,000. Everyone has been fundraising like crazy, even seeking publicity opportunities by appearing in the local news. So far, we have about $72,000 raised. If we can’t meet our goal, not only will they not be able to go to Hawaii, but they will have to give all that money back to the sponsors and donors, meaning we can’t even keep it to fund our already dwindling instrumental music program.

We have until the end of this month to meet that goal, that’s not a lot of time!!! I need anyone who sees this to please reblog and signal boost this like crazy. This group has been my lifeblood for the past 4 years and the members and staff are like family to me. I want nothing more than for these kids to seize this life-changing opportunity. There is nothing like the support and camaraderie in this band and I hope it continues to be a tradition for years to come.

The donation page and more information can be found here.
