THE STORY:

Remember...

...when you were a small child? Did you have a warm bed, healthy food, a loving family?

Can you imagine being abused, homeless, hungry, neglected? At age 6, this was Mason's reality.

At age 11, Mason joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui. At the Club, he found mentors, a caring 'ohana, and life-changing academic and character-building programs. Mason began to thrive.

At age 16 Mason's world was rocked once again. His dad was back on drugs. He told Mason he couldn't care for him any longer. Mason was on his own.

But this time, Mason had a safety net in place. He turned to his Club 'ohana for support and advice. They rallied around him and ultimately helped him to find a loving foster family.

Meet Mason today. Strong and confident, yet humble and endearing, Mason is a role model and leader. He graduated from Baldwin High with a 3.7 GPA.

Earlier this year, Mason won the Maui and Hawaii State Youth of the Year titles and competed at the Pacific Region competition. "Mr. Aloha" was a crowd favorite! It was Mason's very first trip to the Mainland and, yes, he went to Disneyland!

Mason will be a freshman at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, this fall. After graduation, Mason plans to return to Maui to teach and mentor high-risk youth. As Mason puts it, "although I'm considered a kid in the system, my life has never been better."

Whether you call Maui home or just love visiting our island Paradise, you may not realize that there are thousands of Masons falling through the gaps everyday. Please help us reach those kids so that they, too, can have healthy, happy and productive lives -- and make positive contributions to our community. 

Help us to build great futures for more deserving kids like Mason! It's one of the most rewarding, and important, things you'll ever do. Mahalo!
