Thanks to all of y’all who came out to the show in Jacksonville on Christmas night, we raised $300 for this school in Peru. High five! Give ‘em a little extra bump if you’re feeling particularly jolly this holiday season, too. HAPPY NEW YEAR! http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/free-education-in-peru/
