A new cello for Elijah

Hi, my name is Elijah. I am an eleven-year-old cellist, and have been playing since the age of two. I would really like to have a beautiful sounding three-quarter size cello soon, but they're not cheap! I am one of eight children and I love to play the cello in our family quartet and as a soloist. My passion and dream is to perform on stage professionally one day. I'd love to enter competitions and contests soon. My parents don't have enough money to purchase my next cello. I would be so grateful for any help you can give me. Help me to make beautiful music. Help me dream!
