Help me buy a trumpet!

Hi! Please consider donating! I am a senior in high school and I planning on majoring in music education once I graduate. I love spreading the joy of music and could not think of something more giving and rewarding of me than teaching music. However, I am still playing on a beginner’s trumpet. This may seem alright, and honestly it works fine, but when it comes down to it... I am going to need something that will not only last me through 6 years+ of college, but also through my teaching career. My family and I all have jobs, but the money we make goes to necessities like food and paying rent (and other stuff everyone else does). As you can see in the pictures, my little beginner trumpet has been through a lot and I’ve stuck with it! But this chapter needs to come to an end and I will need a better trumpet for college. It would mean a lot of you donated *just from Indiana, USA (don’t want to be too specific)
