My name is Blake Moore, and I am the General Manager of Teralani Sailing Adventures. I am asking today with a heartfelt plea for your support in a time of dire need for the victims of the West Maui / Lahaina Fire.
As you may already know, a devastating fire recently swept through the Lahaina area of West Maui, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. Many of our dedicated employees have tragically lost their homes and possessions as a result of this calamity. The impact on their lives has been profound, and they now find themselves in desperate need of basic essentials such as shelter, food, and hygiene necessities. What you may not realize is that many folks are without transportation as it wasn't just homes that were lost, but an entire town. Cars, houses, grocery stores, convenience stores, power... it's all gone.
Your donated funds will be distributed using an accountant so there is full accountability that can be shared with donors as we distribute. Initially, we will make necessary purchases for food and clothing. in the weeks ahead we will supplement rentals for displaced employees for the working community of West Maui.
In light of this dire situation, we have established a relief fund aimed at providing immediate assistance to our affected employees and their families and friends who have lost everything. The donations we collect will be used to offer temporary shelter, meals, and essential hygiene products to those who have been displaced by the fire. Our goal is to ensure that they can regain a sense of stability and start rebuilding their lives amidst these challenging circumstances.
Your generosity and compassion can make a significant difference in the lives of our employees who are struggling to cope with this tragedy. Any contribution, no matter how small, will go a long way in providing them with the support they need during this difficult time.
To contribute, please donate here so there can be full transparency and accountability with your donation(s). Your support will not only provide immediate relief but also serve as a beacon of hope for our resilient employees as they begin the process of recovery.
We deeply appreciate your consideration and willingness to stand with us in support of those who have been affected by the Lahaina Fire. Together, we can make a meaningful impact and demonstrate the power of community in times of adversity.
Thank you for your kindness and support.
