Cutie on a Scootie

Hey Everybody,

My name is iwalani.  I live in Oakland Ca, Well just moved back to oakland. My wife and son are in Southern california. I am a preschool music teacher and I literally just moved back on June 6th to start back work at the Berkeley School in Berkeley Ca.

It was hard leaving my family in So.Cal but I know its only to better our future in the years to come.  I am excited to come back to The Berkeley School as the co-director of our summer program and music teacher!

I am making this Go Fund Me out of an urgent need for SAFE transportation to and from work. I just moved back and I don’t have a vehicle. With everything going on and trying to maintain the rules of social distancing, I am seeking support so that I can get a scooter!

A little 49cc, street legal moped vepsa-ish scooter! 

My dream is to have the scooter purchased on or before June 15th, 2020

The scooter would be to get to and from work. I live in East Oakland  hills and work in North Berkeley. I’ve been on the bus and Bart for a long time now but everything is different now. 

Here is sample of what the scooter looks like.

All funds will go towards:
Purchase of the scooter
Storage compartment
Registration and Insurance

I am asking for your help in getting this cutie, a scootie so I can safely social distance and get to and from work to serve the children in my best capacity.

I am so eternally grateful for those of you who show up for me and support me in all of my endeavors. It is my honor and joy to teach, share, and express with children and I am so thankful to have people who believe in me and my mission to impact millions of children's lives. This scooter will help me in my mission to reach the children I work with, safely! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Much love & Stay safe ya'll
