Music teacher Timothy King is trying to replace the guitars, ukuleles, keyboards, bass and flute that were stolen from his classroom. Help Mr. King replace the instruments by donating here!

Thank you to all that donated! We dropped off the check today to Mr. King and had the pleasure of learning more about him and his class, hearing about some of the other support they have received, and meeting some of his students. He'll be able to start the kids on some new instruments after winter break!
A couple of donors and I will be dropping off a check for the full replacement amount this week. I'll post a picture afterwards. Thanks to all who supported this campaign!
Amazing! In only 19 hours, thanks to all of you, this campaign is fully funded! I am thrilled to be able to provide Mr. Tim King and Fulton Elementary the full replacement cost of the stolen instruments, with your support! Thank you for your tremendous generosity.
