My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.  [/p][p]Around 600 million people in Africa have no access to electricity, and no clean source of light, leaving them to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives.[/p][p]Many use homemade kerosene lamps which are a poor source of light; they emit toxic black smoke, eat up to 15% of a family’s income and are extremely hazardous.[/p][p]With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean, and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening, so people can learn, earn, and feel safe. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family.[/p][p]SolarAid go out to remote communities, and tell them about the benefits of solar lamps. They instil trust, build demand, and set up distribution networks for the lamps. All of this costs money. [/p][p][b]It costs about £4 to get a lamp to a family. If I can raise £1500 over a year, that is about £4 per day. Or to put it another way, every time I play a song, a family gets a lamp.[/b][/p][p][b]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/b][/p][p][b]P.S. Ukulele players - if you include your email address when you make a donation, at the end of the year you will be able to download the chords & lyrics to all 365 songs.[/b][/p]

Go man go! Light up the world with song and solar. If you need a uke song for Halloween, I wrote one that's fun to play. Check out "On Halloween Night" by Monuzzi on Google, Spotify, Itunes... etc. Rock on!
