Lyco Taiko
Hello there! Thank you for checking out our campaign! Lyco Taiko is an organization that promotes the art of taiko--Japanese festival drumming--in Central Pennsylvania. While we have been expanding steadily in the Williamsport and surrounding areas since our beginning in 2015, we are looking to purchase more equipment and take our educational efforts further across the state. To that end, we need your help. Taiko are expensive--especially the large ones--so we're looking for some assistance. Any gift or advertising will be a tremendous help! ありがと ございます

Update time!

Thanks to some very generous donors, we're already at 10% of our goal. That's incredible news!

It might be a good moment, then, to go into a bit more detail. In particular, I want to talk about why there aren't more specifics on what the funds are going towards, and why this is broadly called an "expansion" campaign.

1) As we continue to grow, our needs change.
--So in the past, it was pretty easy to say "we need money for drums", hence the "equipment drive" in 2016. Now that we're looking at doing more presentations, clinics, and residencies across the state, becoming a larger entity is starting to make more sense. With that comes other expenses, such as (potentially) an office space, employing more than one person, etc. So the ultimate application of the funds is fluid.

2) What we spend the money on is in part influenced by how much we raise.
--Larger drums cost more money, so whether we buy a large drum (known as an "odaiko") or several smaller drums ("chudaiko") is based on how much we can manage to raise.

What I can promise you is that, regardless of what end the money is put towards, the result is going to be a more robust organization that can better serve the state of Pennsylvania and the local communities of the Susquehanna Valley. I hope you're interested in taking part and being involved! Any donation or promotion is welcomed and appreciated.

Cheers,
Urie Kline
