Namaste’ Family Lava Emergency Fund

$3,595 of $11,111 goal

Created May 8, 2018
Shawna Namaste,
Aloha friends and Ohana....... as many of you are aware, our home of five years went from safe to uninhabitable with less than 5 hours notice last Thursday due to a sudden lava eruption in Leilani Estates subdivision. 
We are safe! 
We were even able to get back in to retrieve most of our valuables and music equipment. 
However...... our home most likely will not be able to be lived in anytime soon, our three jobs (we manage two vacation rentals and the recording studio) were instantly terminated (guests can’t get to the vacation rentals and our studio was in the house) and our lives have been flipped upside down. 

Still....... we are hopeful, and we have grown emmensely through this, but have no idea how to get through any day other than today. 

Our kids have graduation in less than two weeks! Zion was planning to go to Oahu for college in August (pending graduation) and we don’t know where we are sleeping tomorrow, Or what and where we are eating next. 

We had had been working steady and even had some savings for the first time in our families lives, four days homeless and without income and we are in need of a miracle. Any bit will help as we go from our current emergency status, into a complete rebuild of our entire lives and everything we have known. 

We love and appreciate you all.

Family, Thank you soooo much for your support. These donations helped us stay housed and fed while we stayed in Hawaii long enough for our kids to graduate, and covered our one way tickets to California.
Shawna and I are heading out on tour this saturday, following the call of Spirit. We know we are guided every step of the way, yet we struggle with fear and anxiety not knowing where we will call home at the end of this, how we will get our studio gear and family belongings from storage in Puna to wherever this unknown home will be.
We are praying for any assistance to lighten the stress, and ultimately we are trusting that what is meant to be is unfolding.
We have sooooo much appreciation for each and every one of you who donated, and/or shared our gofundme. Mahalo Nui Loa

Aloha family.... so many mahaloz for your support. We were able to get most of our belongings out, and through your kindness we were able to stay mostly housed for two weeks...... the girls graduated and due to air quality and lack of work and housing we evacuated to Sacramento. We are here now, and hoping to get ourselves a vehicle so we can get to the shows we have currently booked as well as looking for any and all opportunities to share music while displaced here on Turtle Island. Mahaloz for your generosity.
