Howdy, my band is planning on touring this summer and in order to do so we are going to need a van and a trailer. Being a bunch of college and high school students, none of us have much money to begin with, so we are trying to find ways to gather the money we need. We make some money from playing shows and selling merch, but being a little known band in Kansas that doesn't play covers, the pay isn't so great. We've started giving blood plasma and are going to sell whatever valuable possessions we have (not much). I'd really appreciate any ideas or experiences you all have about raising money.
