this is a repost from the ukulele market thread

Hey everyone,

My name is Kelen and I am a teacher at Aikahi Elementary School. I recently started a music club for K-6 students at the school, and many of them are looking to learn how to play ukulele. I currently have a few ukuleles that they can use, however, I was hoping to acquire a few more.

Does anyone have any old instruments, (does not necessarily have to be ukulele) that they would like to donate to the students of Aikahi Elementary? I also have students interested in guitar, percussion, etc.

Please let me know if anyone would like to make a donation; I know the students would truly appreciate it.

Although I was a geography major, and taught for 19 years, I cannot place where you are located. Would you tell me a country/state.city so shipping cost can be figured, please?

It would appear they are in Hawaii

Yes, as our fellow ukulele player mentioned, my school is located in Kailua, Hawaii.

Thank you for your response! I have many K-6 students interested in learning how to play ukulele, and I am hoping to acquire more so more students can enjoy this beautiful instrument.

I used to live in Kailua. I think I was the poorest guy in town. Just me and Mango Man. But seriously, not saying that you don't need a donation because I'm sure there is no funding, But...I'm thinkin these kids parents would put some towards this if presented right. How much can anyone progress during a class? It's just like with school band. The parent buys or rents a horn or so the kid can practice at home and really progress. Maybe you could give their parents a flyer that bullet points the academic benefits of playing an instrument. We could pitch in a discount coupon to staple on, perhaps even coconut grove in your town would also help this way. It would cost the parents about what they pay for a tank of gas and their kid would have an ukulele for the class and to practice at home and beyond. Ya? Email me if you're interested. andrew@theukulelesite.com
