Thank you for suggesting :
It's hard to know where to turn, to truly give and feel confident in an organization that will benefit Maui and her people now when they need it most.

Those that have enjoyed the islands of Hawaii, and there are many, PLEASE give generously, to keep the "Spirit of Aloha Alive." MAHALO ~

Our Prayers go to Maui and her people, for strength and a will to rebuild, restore her history and that her people will and can return to their roots. I also pray that predatory purchasing will be stopped and not allowed by taking advantage of this devastation to Maui and her people.
