My dear old friend Paul Moore has for several years now run a program in Israel that brings Arab and Jewish children together to make music. He does it on a shoestring, often supplementing the program with his meager earnings as a full time novelty musician. His program is called Ukuleles for Peace. If you click the words "Ukuleles for Peace" anywhere in this post it will link to the website.
This year Ukuleles for Peace was invited to bring their orchestra of children to Vancouver for the Olympics. Unfortunately, the financial crisis made getting the funding impossible and the group was unable to participate.
I just sent $20 to Ukuleles for Peace from my PayPal account as a donation. Join me, please.
