Aloha Prague - Help send us to perform!

Hi Everyone--It's Kate McLennan and Noel Tardy, the duo Spirit Runners Music! We are incredibly excited and honored to be invited to perform at the first ukulele festival in the Czech Republic from August 29th through September 1st, 2013.

This is a cross-cultural event designed to be both entertaining and educational. It features performers from all across Europe and the Czech Republic. We are the only performers from the USA and we are very excited to represent our country!

Our music partnership developed due to both of us being cancer survivors. Our mutual love of music as a healing modality, and our passion for ukulele music forged a friendship and a richly diverse musical sound.

We birthed Spirit Runners Music as a resource for people facing health challenges and their loved ones.

Even though we are endorsed by the KALA Ukulele company for this festival, that does not cover airfare, ground transportation, lodging or food expenses.

We are asking friends, family, and kind strangers to help fundraise our way to Prague, Czech Republic. Any donation would be much appreciated!

We sincerely thank you for your time and consideration for reading this letter. We hope you can support us and perhaps share this with a friend. We know for a fact that when we make it to Prague we will be carrying you in our hearts with many thanks.
