Help out Girls Rock! DC

The fine folks at Girls Rock! DC just sent an e-mail asking for loans and donations of instruments and supplies for this years camp.

Girls Rock! DC is a week-long camp for girls 8-18 that "aims to create a supportive, inclusive and creative space for girls to develop their self-confidence, build community, stand up and rock out!" It's awesome. If you can help out, please do. We're donating a bunch of drums out of Swim-Two-Birds this year.

From their website:
