OHANA - my sister and her family are the definition of Ohana. They take care of family and friends in so many ways. My brother-in-law is a firefighter on Maui and was Hawaii's state employee of the year! My niece performs at local Luaus as an award-winning Tahitian Dancer and was the state champion for wrestling. She is currently studying to get her EMT to give back to the community. My sister has worked in the hospitality industry on Maui for over 30 years. They are active in the local Canoe Club and ingrained in the Hawaiin Culture.
They need help to purchase absolutely everything they lost and rent an apartment while they focus on helping friends and family and getting started on rebuilding. They would like to be the first to rebuild so that they can help their neighborhood and community in any way they can.
Keep in mind milk is $12 a gallon and gas is over $8 right now and in short supply.
Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated. I can't send physical items. They have to purchase items that they can get locally.
If Maui has provided a memorable vacation for you, this is your chance to give back to those who made that vacation great for you!
We thank you and will keep posted on the progress of the massive rebuild that will happen as soon as they can get started!
