The Favela Brass Sticker Fund is Live!

We’ve benefitted from some extremely generous donations of brass instruments. However, at the moment we only have a very limited selection of smaller percussion instruments, and the children have now developed to point where we need a proper set of full-sized percussion instruments.

In order to raise the money that we need for the instruments, we’ve had 500 beautiful Favela Brass stickers printed and are now selling them for the princely sum of £3 each (or R$10 in Rio). The total price for all of the percussion instruments that we need is roughly £1,500 and we will buy instruments bit by bit as the cash comes in from sticker sales. In this way, once the stickers have all been sold, we will have the instruments that we need.

Our team will be selling stickers in person and at our events, and you can also buy them online via eBay. Stickers cost £3 plus 50p postage to the UK or £1 postage to any international address:

Anyone who buys a sticker will have their name included on our Favela Brass Sticker Fund wall of fame, and we’ll post on the blog each time we manage to buy new instruments with the money raised from the stickers.

Thanks everyone!
