    i am going to make this short, i am not a man of many words...

    you folks have many students that can not afford a decent trumpet or even a rental, and i have a jean baptist and a carol 100, both almost new

    i just received a new carol 500T and can easily part with the older two...

    if you have a student that can not afford a decent horn with whom you have great faith, it would be my pleasure to give it to you for you to give it to them

    PM me.

    all the best,
    smokey

    If no bites, consider a local primary school. They would appreciate any support I am sure.

    You're a gentleman, God Bless you.

    I just started at a new position with special needs students. Very poor home situations and would never be able to obtain an instrument at any cost.

    If these are still available, I would be happy to pay the shipping to put them in their hands.

    Yep, that's the one I had in mind - but it sounds like a local worthy cause may just benefit from some amazingly selfless generosity.
