Help me give my students better instruments that they can carry; Our old bass drums are way to big and heavy and cause back pain.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are hard working instrumentalists from a rural farming community and the arts is often the last on the list of priorities. These kids march and perform in concerts and recitals, adjudication events and community events, but often have terrible instruments/equipment to work with, due to their age and wear and tear.
My goal is to provide them with better supplies and instruments so they can audition and enjoy making music without frustration.
Also, better instruments and supplies will help the students shine and perform their best, and hopefully to achieve acceptance to District, Region and State level honors festivals.
Have you ever seen a Marching band without any bass drums? Our current marching bass drums are falling apart and too large/ heavy for my small students to support. Kids are developing more back problems from carrying them each year and I don't want that to spoil the band experience. Everyone knows the bass drums are the heart beat of the band so we have to keep them pumping!
These new, smaller marching bass drums from Woodwind/Brasswind are the answer to this problem.
Let's save the heartbeat!
Please help to keep them going by helping us purchase new smaller bass drums!
