Please Bear With Us As We Re-Build This Site From Scratch!
Did you know that the LOVE MY UKULELE CLUB is run 100% by me, Jamie Houston – that’s me in the photo. I live in Wellington, which is the capital city of New Zealand, and I have a huge passion for all things UKULELE!
My biggest challenge with the online community that I have created, is the cost of funding it. As I write this we are approaching Christmas 2013, and since launching the LOVE MY UKULELE CLUB in January 2013 I have spent over $5000 designing, building, creating, maintaining, updating, posting, outsourcing, promoting, responding, collaborating, troubleshooting and the list goes on!!! And most of this has come from my own pocket, along with some help from T-Shirt sales and other fund-raising.
The exciting news is that we currently have over 7300 Likers on our Facebook Page, and have a very popular Website that is almost 100% populated by great content from you, the members. We have an informative BLOG, a section that features your PHOTOS with over 250 submissions, and the newest addition is the VIDEO section, which you are loving, based on the massive number of views some videos are getting, and we are getting new submissions almost every day! We also have other social media sites setup and linked to our website. We have Pinterest, Twitter, Google Plus and YouTube. I also have lots of new ideas for 2014 and just wish there were more hours in the day. Among other things, we are planning to have a classified section for buying and selling ukes, an international directory of ukulele players and ukulele clubs, as well as a directory of teachers. How does that sound?
Recently, some of you awesome people have expressed a desire to support the CLUB, so I have put up this page so you can do just that.
I welcome any and all donations, big or not so big, and you can be assured that they will be used to continue spreading the spirit of the ukulele worldwide as this awesome community grows even bigger!
Thanks for being part of the journey with me 🙂
