(California) - Luis has loved the trumpet since he first picked one up and “it spoke to his soul.” Last year he bid on one at his high school music department fundraiser, but was outbid. Luis decided to try for a trumpet again at this year’s fundraiser and brought his life savings, $600. Sadly, the winning bid was $1,200 from another student’s dad named, Gian.
Gian knew Luis had been saving money for the trumpet and he decided to make sure he got one. After the fundraiser Gain gave Luis the trumpet! Gian says, “We let opportunities to do good pass us by and I thought, 'I'm just going to do this. And I'll figure out what to cut to make ends meet later.'”
