Then, if inclined, Join or Form a Team. You're doing an even Greater thing! Teams can raise more awareness and $.
Next :: talk to EVERYBODY you know (aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, teachers, bosses, employees, friends, not-so-friends ..) about supporting you in your efforts by sponsoring your hourly drumming (example: $20 per hour X 5 hours X 10 folks = $1,000 for our causes!) and get YOUR SPONSORS to register and talk to even more people.
