THE STORY:

THIS FUNDRAISER IS FULLY FUNDED. MAHALO NUI LOA TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED MAKE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS!

******************
This Mother's Day, we want to give each of the 70 homeless moms at the Ka Hale O Ke Ola shelters on Maui a Happy Mother's Day card, with a personal note of encouragement and well-wishing from another Maui mom, and $10. (Because when you have $10 in your pocket, you know you can make it until tomorrow.)

Donate here to fund the $10 gifts. To commit to writing a Happy Mother's Day card to a homeless Maui mom, please go to www.facebook.com/MauiMothersDayCardProject

There's a few things that I know. The first is that being a mom is a tough job under any circumstances. The second is that living in paradise can be challenging for any family, with the high cost of living it's easier here than most places to fall on hard times. The third is that the homeless children in our community belong to all of us, and the very best way we can support them is by holding up their mothers. And the fourth is that Maui moms are some of the kindest, most generous-spirited women you will meet anywhere. The Aloha spirit is alive and well thanks to them!

"When we as givers give we remember… I am needed. I am powerful. I am capable of loving my neighbors. There is enough. And when the receivers receive they remember… I am loved. I am cared for. I am not alone. I have not been forgotten. There is enough." -- Glennon Doyle Melton, Momastery

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting all of KHAKO's mothers and bringing this idea to fruition! It brings me such tremendous joy to see a group of women supporting and lifting up other women -- what an example we are setting for our children and our community. I am honored to contribute. 2 years ago
