We hart Deach. We hart him so much so that wanted a way to say, hey Deach, you're pretty awesome. So I came up with this idea. Hey why don't we make a Deach T-shirt and give him half of the profit!

I asked him if he was down for the idea. He was very down for the t-shirt but instead of taking his half, he wanted to donate it to charity. Then he came back and said he's going to chip in an additional dollar for every t-shirt bought towards that charity.

So here it is, the limited edition, 'Deach Me Please' T-shirt that will be going up in the UU store for pre-order sometime today. The charity his share will go to is not quite a charity but a husband and wife couple that teach ukulele to middle school and elementary school children here on Kauai on a state grant for preserving Hawaiian Culture. Instead of giving them money, we've worked out a deal with Larry's Music in Kapa'a to get some Kamoa Ukuleles for the kids at wholesale prices. By doing it this way, we can give more than we could by just writing a check.

Our goal is to give a couple ukes to this program that really operates inline with the UU mission of growing the next generation of Ukulele players. The Lardizibals (the couple that runs the program) are really in it for the kids and we want to help them with their program. They told me that there are students who want into the program, but they can't take anymore because they're out of ukuleles.

color : Dark Heather (similar to the UU heather hoodie color)

Big Ups to Russ_buss for helping us out with the definition of Deach.

....

This is not entirely true. I really want to help these kids so I will donate a dollar for shirts 1-49. If more than 49 are sold, I'll donate $2 for each shirt. and if more than 100 shirts are sold, I'll donate $4 for each shirt. 100 shirts = $400 for the math impaired.

In addition, I have a special surprise for someone who buys a shirt in the month of October. Those of you who know how I am, know what I mean. wink wink.. hint: it's worth six UU points.

So please help out this good cause and support the forum.

Thanks!

Good action. I hope those kids spread the aloha like coodies.

Order in, but I wonder if it is not against the deach-osofy to ask for gifts. As I remember, He previously chastised the greedy ones with great wrath and anger. Well... not anger maybe. But snarky wrath. Oh yeah.

May the T-shirt bring many kids an ukulele and all of us much exquisite bald-bellied warmheartedness!

And something to wear for Halloween.

You have an incredible memory.

LOL at deach-osofy. deach-osofy has more flaws than a $15 factory-second Mahalo uke.

This is such a great cause, and such an awesome person! Who wouldn't be proud to have Deach's name plastered across their chest? Order in a week ago, and can't wait to see the curious looks I'll get walking around Brisbane wearing it!

I hope everyone who is considering it does get one. It could make a huge difference to those kids!

Haha, sorry for the wait folks, but don't fret (pun?)! I sent all the official orders for Deach T-shirts out yesterday (Monday) so they should be arriving on your doorsteps in about a week (maybe longer for the internationals). Hopefully they get there before Mr. Deach comes to town. When you get yours, please post pictures to share with us!!
