Aloha UUers!

I’ve been in turbo mode this past week working on putting together an ʻukulele event to benefit Ukraine.

Please share! (See bottom of post)

Ukes For Ukraine Live Stream Fundraiser
April 9th, 2022 – 9am to 3pm/pau HST

Performances & Workshops by:
  • Tobias Elof
  • Victoria Vox
  • Neal Chin
  • Craig Chee & Sarah Maisel
  • Kevin Carroll
  • Keoki Kahumoku
  • Brad Bordessa (me! Your MC/host)
Donations benefit World Central Kitchen’s work feeding refugees in Ukraine. They have served well over 1,000,000 meals since the invasion has started and are doing amazing work. Please see for yourself: https://wck.org/news/news-1-million-meals-served-with-chefsforukraine.

There are still a lot of things in motion and scheduling that needs to be worked out. But timing is tight and I want to try and jump on spreading the word as soon as possible.

The stream will be live here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQPDCPu-J7Y. Visit the link and click "Set reminder" to get a notification email. Mark your calendar too!

Donations will be collected on the stream page via YouTube (100% of donations go to WCK – there are no transaction fees!). Donations are open now and will run through the end of April in case you can’t make the live stream. A replay will be available. The stream is free, but please consider donating what you can.

Please check out https://liveukulele.com/ukraine/ for more details and to see the workshop lineup (I’ll be updating this page as I know more details).

I would LOVE your help sharing this event on social media. Here’s a blurb and image you can post:

World Central Kitchen does a great service. They have been working throughout the world in this situation and other crises, such as natural disasters.

Quick update:

The schedule is now mostly locked in: https://liveukulele.com/ukraine/.

Herb and Jake can't join us live, but pre-recorded an exclusive performance that will be broadcast during the event!

We've already raised over $1,300! Thank you for your donations. That buys a lot of food that World Central Kitchen can turn into yummy meals! Keep it coming!

Please join us next week, Saturday, April 9th for free workshops and performances all day!!!
