Greatest Ukulele Gift of the Year
I'm not sure if the link below will work for you, as I'm not sure what the FB permissions setting is, but I'll repeat the story.
Earlier in 2013, Alan "Ukisociety" Brandt sold his custom Tom Guy maple tenor (the one he's playing in the above video) to raise money to adopt a child. The ukulele changed hands several times during the year until the last buyer, Edwin Gilkison, noticed Alan's name inside and, after finding out why Alan sold it, gave it back to him.
Hats off to Mr. Gilkison, Official Ukulelia Hero of 2013. What a loving gesture.
