BENEFITING: UKULELE KIDS CLUB INC
At the beginning of August, 27 middle school students from River Valley MS in Jeffersonville, IN were given the gift of music with the donation of ukuleles from Kala Brand Music. Now the group, self-named the Ukulele Cool Kids want give this gift forward in two ways. One is to give the gift of music and joy to the community by playing for free in area parks, walking bridges, coffee shops, nursing homes or any place that will have them. Second if anyone in the community enjoys the music of the Ukulele Cool Kids, they ask that you donate to their page on CrowdRise that collects money for the non-profit Ukulele Kids Club. The UKC ( theukc.org ) is a nationwide program that provides ukuleles to children in hospitals as a way to spread the healing powers of music. The Ukulele Cool Kids take no money for their music, they only ask that if they bring a smile to your face that you donate and give a smile to another cool kid.
