Maui Matt

Donation protected
Matt’s friends are looking for support to help him overcome the loss of his home due to the Lahaina fire.

Matt is someone who is not scared to embrace different walks of life. He is living in Hawaii to be close to family, something crucially important after losing his twin brother all too recently. Matt will not ask for help, but times call for his family and friends to reach out and seek support from those that can give a little to someone deserving of such.

I am sending this request for donations to serve two purposes. The first is practical. Let us help Matt live, work, and be a part of his Hawaiian community while his house is rebuilt (a years-long process where he will need to pay his mortgage and rent). The second purpose is to show him that the world is small, communal, and caring. We kindly request donations or posts showing support.

Thank you,

-Andrew (Matt's best friend since we were 8)
