Rivers to the Sea, Maui Surf Lessons, has been a part of Lahaina town for over two decades. Our once-vibrant town now stands in ruins, families left without homes, and the spirit of our island deeply wounded. In response to this unprecedented tragedy, we've initiated this GoFundMe campaign to rally people across the globe who share our commitment to supporting the local families grappling with the loss of everything they held dear.
For years, we've been a part of the Lahaina community, fostering a connection to the sea and sharing the joy of surfing with locals and visitors alike. The recent hurricane, a stark reminder of nature's raw power, unleashed winds that fueled devastating fires, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. The structures we called home and the families we consider part of our extended family have been torn apart by this disaster.
Our goal with this GoFundMe campaign is to harness the collective compassion of individuals around the world who want to extend a helping hand to those who have lost so much in the wake of this catastrophe. The funds raised will be channeled directly into aiding the affected families, offering both immediate financial relief and essential supplies to begin the journey of rebuilding their lives.
With the generous contributions we receive, we are committed to providing direct support where it matters most—on Maui. Your donations will enable us to swiftly bring financial aid and vital resources to those who need it urgently. As an integral part of this community, we vow to ensure that every dollar raised reaches the hands of those who have been most severely impacted.
You can play a pivotal role in this mission of hope and resilience. Share this page within your circles and consider making a donation. Your support will help us stand with our community during its darkest hour and will contribute to the ongoing process of healing and recovery. Together, we can embody the true spirit of 'ohana and show that compassion knows no boundaries.
The devastation caused by these wildfires is unlike anything we've ever witnessed on our beloved island. But out of the ashes, the strength of community and the power of unity will rise. Let's rally together, restore hope, and support Maui's families as they embark on the journey to rebuild their lives. Thank you for being part of this vital mission.
