What We Are Doing For Those Affected By The Maui Wildfires
MAUI WILDFIRE & DISASTER RESPONSE FROM THE CREW OF KEPOIKAI II
September 1st, 2023
To Our Friends & Ohana,
As the wildfire relief effort continues to impact our ohana in Lahaina, Maui, we wanted to take this opportunity to raise awareness and funds for those affected by the devastation that took place in early August 2023.
Our friends and ohana in Maui are hurting! At least 2,700 structures have been damaged or completely destroyed, many individuals have perished, thousands have been evacuated to temporary shelters, and hundreds of families and small businesses have been directly impacted by the catastrophic wildfires on Maui.
Our hearts go out to the many families and friends who have been directly impacted by the Maui wildfires and we praise the first responders for their valiant efforts.
Starting September 1st, 2023, we will be donating $1 for every passenger we take out on Kepoikai II. We’re also going to be collecting donations from our friends and ohana to help those in need. We plan to be 100% transparent about the funds we’re donating and where they are being donated. We’ve decided that we want to make sure our donations are going to small organizations and businesses that were directly impacted by the fires. Each month we will be donating to a new cause so that we can help as many people as possible. Below is a breakdown of the organizations that we plan to donate to through the end of the year:
- September 2023 – Maui Strong Fund
- October 2023 – Maui Humane Society
- November 2023 – The Maui County First Responder Relief Fund
- December 2023 – Extended Horizons
Every little bit helps and as part of the Catamaran Kepoikai II ohana, we are so grateful for your compassion and generosity as we work together towards helping those who lost everything!
** ZERO ADDITIONAL FEES + 100% OF PROCEEDS DONATED EACH MONTH. **
We will be keeping everyone updated on everything related to our efforts on our social media channels. Please Follow along for updates!
Mahalo nui loa for your support!
