Free Instruments for Kids

Hello friends! My name is Jasper, and the picture you saw is my partner Jimmy, a musician playing for children in a local elementary school. We both grew up in Taiwan and feel strongly about equal opportunity for children.

We want to raise funds to provide instruments for children so kids from less privileged families can have the chance to study music, develop interest and enrich their lives. We often don't realize it, but the opportunity to do and learn things that bring us happiness is often a luxury for people. We believe music will help children discover themselves through self expression. Music also guides them on a path of self-discipline and open doors to different cultural perspectives. In a world filled with conflict and misunderstanding, we believe music to have the ability to break down boundaries and draw people closer to each other. These are things that we hope every child can have regardless of their back ground.

Providing free instrument is our first steps! We hope to buy our first set of instruments-18 pianos, 18 cellos, and 30 violins. We are also working very hard to set up a music workshop that provides affordable music lessons and a desirable workplace for talented musicians. Our goal is to build a sustainable scholarship program that will support under privileged students. We hope that the scholarship program will support kids to come into our workshop for a more well rounded education, which will include ensemble improvisation opportunities, we believe that will encourage kids to imagine, create instead of playing what's written and being told what to do. In addition, our workshop would strive to fulfill the highest level of social responsibility by offering completely free learning program in rural area, community concerts that will eventually blend music with the local culture.

Please feel free to ask questions or tell us what you think! We'd love to hear from you!! We promise we will keep everyone posted both about our progress and about how we spend our money and what we spend on! Thank you so much for the support and love!! Let's make it happen!!

P.S. The Zip Code of 40351 is not Morehead, KY 40351, USA. It is for West District, Taichung City, Taiwan.


We arrived at the figure $20325 by (18 elec. pianos*$700/unit+ 18 cellos*$180/unit+30 violins* $75)/.89 (dividing by .89 because of the fee). We looked up the price from Amazon/Best Buy. Feel free to ask more questions if you would like to know more details about our plan (and the numbers)! Think of something? Just talk to us!
我們的$20325美金這個數字,是用18台電子鋼琴(一台$700),18把大提琴(一把$180),30把小提琴($75),算出來的。價格參考美國亞馬遜網站(Amazon)和百思買(Best Buy)。除以0.89因為會收手續費,5%給了GoFundMe網站,2.9%和$0.30/每筆捐款 給了WePay這個中間商,$0.30/$10 (我一開始假設一個人捐款是捐$10) 是3%,所以給WePay大約是5.9%。一共有大概10.9%的手續費。
