A fellow alumni needs your help!

Jacob needs your help!

You've probably heard of Jacob by now. He is profoundly deaf and has been since birth. He can't hear a thing, but he can feel the vibes!

He came to LSA after being rejected by other DJ schools and we found a way to teach him how to DJ using his Subpac which is the vibrating pad you can see in the photo. He can feel vibrations and beat-match like a pro using this device.

He's scored a gig in Miami at a festival but he's fallen on hard times, his beloved subpac has given up the ghost :( He desperately needs our help to buy a new subpac because it's the only way he can DJ and interact with music on a daily basis. He's skint so I thought it would be awesome if we all chipped in to help keep the DJ community diverse and inclusive for all. 

Make his dream come true and donate what you can!

UPDATE *** Thanks for your donations the main goal was reached within 24 minutes! We've extended the goal to include to official protective carry bag for him to use while traveling :)
