Friday Links: Maui Strong, Dick Van Dyke

Ukulelists have been raising money to support those affected by the Maui wildfire with Eddie Vedder and Jack Johnson auctioning off ukes, and Taimane playing a benefit. Plus, Jake Shimabukuro is donating profits from his Hana Hou Festival to the fund. You can buy tickets to the online stream the event here.
