    just want to thank all for your suggestions & advice

    i did not get even 1 PM and that was a big surprise for me. i had hopes to make this personal, my gift to a teacher and their gift to a student. personal. and secretly hoping to hear some news now and then. making it even more personal.

    about Joplin HS: i checked and there is a matching funds program for them so i will send them a check that will be worth double - i already feel i am getting a bargain, but i will call them tomorrow to verify that this will go to the music director and if possible to go for a trumpet player but if not okay. but it says without clarity that it is being matched by UAE. if that is for the country [UAE], i will cancel this donation. tomorrow will tell. sorry. if anybody knows, please let me know.

    about Haiti: i will also call Jeanne tomorrow. thanks for the heads-up

    and to Bill D. it is my pleasure to send you 1. i hope it is enjoyed. please PM me your addy

    again my thanks,
    smokey

    just a note: i have sent a request to a friend to get some quality trumpets. i do not know if my idea is feasible. i am trying. i just keep thinking that if it can come to fruition it may make a bunch of kids, HAPPY!

    i'm asking a lot so that means that success is less likely, but if you don't ask, you will never know

    if you don't hear from me you can guess that my request could not be fulfilled

    best,
    smokey

    I went to this web site and could find nothing related to collecting donations for Joplin. Are you sure this is the right place?? I am willing to donate if I can find out how to do it.
