Hey everyone!!! This is Lauren A Rowell , (Alex's sister) I was asking Alex what he wanted for Christmas this year and he was telling me that he needed a new guitar!
Alex has been playing guitar since he was around 16 and he has gotten pretty great at it I think. Through learning chords online, taking lessons at school, writing his own songs, performing throughout Totus Tuus two summers in a row and at the occasional Tommie Catholic event this past semester at UST, he has slowly mastered his craft! His current guitar (which you can see in the video) recently broke but is still kinda playable? Or so he says... I feel like one of the strings are gonna pop and hurt someone. The bridge, which is part where the strings attached on the bottom, has cracked and it is more expensive to repair than the guitar is worth.
So the main reason I am doing this now is that Alex is actually on his way to Kolkata India on a mission trip with his seminary, and he doesn't have his phone, (I have it hehehe) and no access to the internet... SO! with your help! We can surprise him with at least a few more dollars in his pocket to fund his music endeavors! And if we happen to exceed this goal, that could also go to a new guitar case which I recently saw was duct taped and probably needs replacing as well. Let's be honest, Alex isn't Alex without a guitar strapped to his back! Hahah! Thank you all so much for anything you can donate! And Happy New Year!!!
