    Default Survivor Girl Ukulele Band - Album Kickstarter!

    Minnesota's own!! I recently met Laurie Kallevig for the first time up north at the Silver Creek Ukulele fest. Laurie's life work is teaching girls in Calcutta who have escaped sex trafficking how to play the ukulele - and with that, she changes lives. Laurie is doing a Kickstarter to support their album project.
    DO NOT MISS the just added 'taster track' of "Twinkle, twinkle" (in the text). It takes my breath away...

    Please share with your uke club and consider supporting this amazing project. You can pre-order the digital download for just $10.
    My personal preference is the $60 level which gets you two signed CDs, two uke bracelets, and a lot of love and gratitude...

    Just signed up for the $60 option, and I'll take this to our uke club this Sunday! What a wonderful project -- and a chance to touch the lives of others in a potentially life-changing way. Let's make this happen, UU!

    Much more interested in playing the ukulele than making violins just now...

    I just decided what I'll be including in some holiday gifts. This will be a great addition to give to some people, (and a copy for myself, LOL.)

    Wow. Very impressive. I think the sound of the tabla drum fits in very nicely. I made a pledge.

    Thanks for spreading awareness for this project. I pledged when the Kickstarter page first went live. Survivor Girl Ukulele Band does important work.

    You all are the best!
    Thank you for your generosity.
    Laurie is indeed an astonishing, gutsy woman.
    She and these girls deserve our support.
    Halfway there! (It's all or nothing with a Kickstarter!)

    Hey, uke people!
    The album looks to be about 70% funded, with 9 days left to go. A Kickstarter is "all or nothing".
    Become part of the group that makes it happen for these girls and this amazing project!
