My name is Jarrod Somaoang. I am from the small town of Lahaina, Maui. Recently, a massive wildfire destroyed the entire town. Though some areas were spared, many were not. Many of my family, have lost their homes and jobs. My family's neighbors, family's friends, have lost their homes or have perished due to these fires. I currently still have a family member missing and unaccounted for, as our search and hopes continue that he is safe. I also want to help many other families in Maui. (2) other fires happened at the same time. Many of those people lost homes and loved ones too. Lahaina unfortunately, suffered the most catastrophic damage. My goal is to raise as many funds to help everyone I can on Maui. We are one people. The Aloha spirit lives strong in our people. Through all of this tragedy, Lahaina will rebuild with that same charm and Aloha spirit it always had. Memories are now forever cherished, and loved ones lost, are never forgotten. Lahaina Strong! Maui Strong!
Thank you all for all your support and love.
