Hello, my name is Shelton Charles

I live in the Austin area in Texas and am asking you for help. As most people are aware there are a lot of expenses that come with going to college. The problem that has happened recently is that my father has been hit with identity fraud. For the past few months he has been hit numerous times with fraudulent charges that add up to almost $30,000. This has also caused my father’s credit score to take a tremendous hit as well. This has left me in a particularly bad situation because of the fact that along with computer science as my major in college, I hope to remain in the marching band. I have been borrowing an instrument from a friend for the entire school year so far, but when I go off to collage this will not be possible. The good news is that I have found an amazing instrument thanks to the help of my Band director. Sadly the timing of this identity fraud has made it near impossible to pay more than a fraction of the cost.

I am asking for a bit of help in regards to paying for this trombone.

I do have little else to offer in return for this service though I have chosen a few things I can do for perks of donating.

Thank you for your time
