Last year, I was selected as a member for the first time and got to travel to Hamburg, Germany, where we, as a band, were placed as international champions for the 29th time.
This year, I have been selected, again, and I would love more than anything to go. Unfortunately, my mother is a single mom who teaches for a living and must provide for my two brothers and me, so she is struggling enough financially. Also, the family member who helped fund the other half of my trip flat-out refused to chip-in in any way, whatsoever. I am only a graduating senior in high school, so I am unable to possibly get a job to fund it due to time constraints. So, my options are rather limited.
I am not asking for the whole trip to be financed by any means. I am just asking for some support, and I just hope that the kindness of friends, families, and strangers is enough to provide this support.
