Thank you to everyone who has reached out from all over the world to make sure we are ok. Although many of us have lost everything, we still have each other and fond memories shared on the water with you! For that we are grateful. We are completed devastated by the footage showing the destruction of our beloved Lahaina town due to the fires. My name is Iwa. My husband and I own and operate Makai Adventures and Kainani Sails. We currently employ a total of 10 people, not including ourselves, and now everyone is out of work. I’ve started this fundraiser because many people have asked what they can do to help. At this point we are all still overwhelmed and trying to process what this will mean for each of us. In the meantime, I’m hoping to fundraise $1000 for each of the crew members who have lost their home and $500 for each crew who has been affected. Any excess funds will be distributed evenly among all crew. All funds will go straight into the crew’s pockets as they are each faced with making difficult decisions to decide what is best for them and their families. These fires haven’t stopped yet. And they are not only in Lahaina. Please continue to keep Maui in your thoughts and prayers.
