Aloha the Peters

After moving halfway around the world, the first friends we met on our own were the Peters family.  They showed us what aloha was and though they moved to the Big Island shortly after we met, we have remained close and they are a huge part of our Hawaii Ohana.  
Their 2 beautiful daughters are the same ages as our girls and they are all like sisters.   Josie and Telila were both in diapers and clinging to Sina and I when we met, while Clara and Sania started playing together like they would be friends forever just after they turned 4.  This is one of the nicest, most generous families you could meet, and their home is right now on fire from the recent volcanic activity on Hawaii.  
We are beside ourselves with helplessness.  Their family is SAFE and together but the home that they own and love is, as of an hour ago, on fire from lava.  LAVA.  
We would like to raise money to help them rebuild, and to take away the feeling of helplessness that the true power of nature can bring.  In a world (and year) where so much seems wrong, we want to use any good will others may have toward us toward them. Please share this post and donate anything you can to our friends who are truly more like family.  
With sincerest love and aloha,
The Tarvers family
