Thank You!

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who generously supported our relief efforts for our beloved Lahaina Ohana. 

 

Your kindness and generosity has truly touched us and we are very grateful for your support.

 

Through a true spirit of aloha, we can lift their spirits and provide comfort during this difficult time. 

 

Aloha is all about love, compassion, and unity, and it offers hope to those who have suffered loss. 

 

By standing in solidarity with Lahaina Ohana, we show them they are not alone. Your gift will provide the critical resources and support needed to begin the long process of recovery and rebuilding.

 

We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for us in our mission.
