The blog hasn’t been up for 24 hours and I’m already asking something of all of you… bad form? I hope not.
Anyway, as a member of the UM Chapter of FCMENC (Florida Collegiate Music Educator’s National Conference), I’m taking place in a fundraising effort organized by the Shropshire Music Foundation. This foundation is organizing a fundraiser called “Practice for Peace,” the proceeds of which will go towards instruments/music instruction for students in third-world countries. The fundraiser is just like a walk-a-thon, only for practicing. Sponsors pledge a certain amount of money per minute, and for each minute I practice in the month of November, they donate their amount to the Foundation’s efforts. That’s right, I get to improve at my instrument, AND help a good cause!
But I can’t do it without the sponsors! If you’re interested in sponsoring me for the month of November, please feel free to email me. Even a penny a minute is worth something, and you can choose a maximum amount you wish to donate, in case I spend more time than either of us anticipated! You can also choose to make a flat donation.
