Students in the Melody Payne Piano Studio are participating in a Practice-A-Thon to raise money for victims of the devastating flood that destroyed so many homes in Louisiana in August 2016, and we'd love for your students to join us!
You are welcome to use this Practice-A-Thon packet to raise funds for any organization that is accepting flood donations. 100% of the proceeds from my studio's Practice-A-Thon will go directly to the immediate family and extended family of my piano student who lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Many of you have heard about her when I've spoken about Skype lessons. She is my young Skype student.
My student's grandparents on both sides of the family lost their homes, vehicles, and most of their belongings to the flood. Their homes had approximately five feet of water, and many of their belongings could not be salvaged. They need financial help rebuilding their homes and lives. The thumbnail images are her grandparents' homes. You can see how high the water line was on the sides of their homes.
This download includes my studio's Practice-A-Thon information, plus a generic version that you can personalize for your own studio.
Open the PowerPoint, add text boxes where you want to type, and then type your personalized studio information into the text boxes. Add your logo and contact information if you like. Then you can print the pages you need and distribute them to your students.
The Practice-A-Thon can be held at any time, and can last as long as you wish. When you are finished with your studio Practice-A-Thon, if you would like to donate the money to this Louisiana family, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to assist you with that.
Please join my students in helping this special family rebuild their lives. My 11 students who participated in my studio's Practice-A-Thon raised over $1200 for these families. Will you join us in helping someone in need? Thank you!
