Ukuleles for Ukraine

SAN DIEGO -- Ukuleles for Ukraine, a California based non-profit charity, has released a new selftitled documentary based on their 2015 trip to Ukraine to supply children’s homes with clothing, school supplies, medicine and musical instruments – specifically providing music lessons on the ukulele to encourage the creativity of children across the homes in central Ukraine. “The purpose of this documentary to encourage people to volunteer and impart their skills. If families watching are inspired to adopt a child, that would be a secondary benefit. We are raising funds to continue donating instruments and giving music lessons, plus achieve our goal of installing computers to enable a 21st century standard of education,” said Quinn Boylan, founder of Ukuleles for Ukraine.

The non-profit raised over $5,000 from individual donors and corporate sponsors and coordinated the donation and delivery of over 150 ukuleles and other musical instruments.
