I am now officially a part of the Ukulele community. :cool: Today I gave away a Ukulele. It went to my Granddaughter for her 13th birthday. Giving away a Uke is a great way to spread enthusiasm for these little instruments. In this case the Uke was a Kala Ukadelic (Texas Flag). A great little starter Uke for her.

I hope to give away more as time goes on.

Good stuff. Always great to make the world a better place. Hope she enjoys it, and you get to play together.

Good for you! I've given 3 of my adult children ukes and they are not only all hooked but have spread the love to others...it just keeps growing. Another plus is I have more people to play with.

Ah, OP, that's absolutely great. . . it's a small but deep work of charity, even if the recipient has material goods, since people may not recognize that there are joys in making music. In a way, you've given a blessing and hopefully you'll end up hearing music that itself is a blessing!

It's hard to say who gets the most joy out of it, the givee or the giver!

While I think sharing your passion and gifting a uke can be a wonderful thing, please consider how receptive the recipient will be.

Just because grandma's passion is knitting doesn't mean the grandchildren are going to be interested in receiving a "knit your first afghan" kit.
