FULLY FUNDED – two words that bring me so much joy right now.
One week ago on March 19, the news came down that the final performance(s) for the Aurora Indoor Percussion – a trip to WGI World Championships – might be in jeopardy. Long story short, all because of potential transportation issues. After a number of setbacks, emails, phone calls, and even more setbacks, a mutually beneficial solution was identified. Part of this solution resulted in the creation of a GoFundMe campaign, which set out to raise the funds needed ($800) in order to transport our equipment to and from WGI World Championships.
The campaign was made public on Tuesday, March 24 around 8pm. Why is that relevant? Because as of TODAY (March 26), at 12:30pm – just slightly more than 40 hours later – our campaign to send #AIP2WGI is FULLY FUNDED.
Thanks to the support of so many amazing people, these talented high school musicians will be able to finish their season as planned – performing at WGI World Championships for the first time. THANK YOU to those who gave, those who shared our cause with others, those who love music, and to those who just want the to see these students succeed.
