Thank you so much, Deach. It's such a beautiful instrument that you so generously sent me. I'll remember this gesture as long as I live. But my own plan to pay it forward has not been forgotten. As much as I'd love to make a contribution to the musical community, I saw an ad while watching 24 that made me think and research a little. The foundation is called Malaria No More and although they are almost completely irrelevant to the ukulele community, these families in Africa are still loving people, I think they deserve some help.
I'm going to purchase a few "mosquito-nets" through the MalariaNoMore.org site. These are bed coverings that protect the people throughout the night so infected mosquitos cannot reach the innocent sleepers. This is just the beginning. Thank you so much, deach, and everyone. <3

Oh, and one more thing, for each ten dollar donation, five dollars buys a net, and the other five is broken up into research, communication, and shipping to, the families in need.

While I think it's great you contributed monetarily, do yourself a favor. QUIT DOING IT! You don't have a job and you continue to complain how you are broke. If you keep this habit up, you will always be broke. Help yourself first, then help others. Don't go giving your money out unless you have money to give out. If you really want to help, donate your time instead of your money. Help a local soup kitchen. Volunteer at a hospital.

The view from my high horse is nice, yes, rather, I think I'll stay up here.
