Help Ryan Repair His Bass for His Bday

Our dear Ryan's birthday is coming up, and some of you may know it's been an especially challenging couple of months for him. A recent cherry on top includes a nasty split in the front of his double bass that he purchased not too long ago. It's repairable, but as you can imagine, not cheap ($1500). He will also need to get a large humidifier to prevent further damages (probably no less than $200).

If you'd like to get him something for his birthday, please consider donating to this secret campaign. I thought we could surprise him on his birthday in a couple days with a little bit of assistance from his friends.

If you'd prefer to donate through Venmo, please send it privately to @celiawilliams32 with a note referring to the donation. 

Even if you can't donate, we appreciate you and any good energy you can send our way. Here's to a new year!
