Fundraising Team
Hi everyone! Our names are Marie Eriel Hobro and Cidney Kelly. We are a part of Wolf & Woman, a  documentary collective for women, POC, and LGBTQ+ creatives in Hawaiʻi run by Marie Eriel Hobro. In addition to the creative work we do, we also organize community events for youth. 

Weʻve been teaching photography to houseless youth (ages 7-20) from Pu'uhonua o Wai'anae, the largest houseless village on Oʻahu, for almost a year. This campaign was originally created to help these amazing kids put together a gallery show at Arts at Marks Garage. The gallery was incredibly successful thanks to the overwhelming support we received from everyone. 

Despite the hardships they face as houseless youth in Hawaiʻi, these kids have so much natural talent and it just keeps getting better. Theyʻre incredibly strong, hardworking, respectful, intelligent, funny, and positive. Two of our students also now aspire to become professional photographers. Outside of photography, some of them dream of becoming doctors, professional tennis players, and psychologists. We know that if they keep going in the right direction, they can do all of that and more. They truly are the future leaders that Hawaiʻi needs. By contributing, youʻre helping these kids develop their skills and knowledge in ways that will help them break the cycle of houselessness. While the funding for this campaign originally went to gallery expenses, it will now go towards art supplies and camera equipment.

These are the goals we need to meet to help the kids continue with this program: 

Our first goal: $1,000 for our gallery show and travel expenses *COMPLETED!

Our second goal: $2,550 for at least 3 quality starter cameras and memory cards

Our third goal: $5,000 for more cameras, memory cards, and tripods

Our fourth goal: $10,000 for more cameras, memory cards, tripods, and sound equipment

Our ultimate goal: $20,000+ for every student to use quality cameras, camera equipment, sound equipment, and lighting equipment

We are also accepting donations for cameras, tripods, lighting equipment, lenses, hard drives, SD/CD memory cards, card readers, laptops, picture frames, mounting materials, paint,  photo paper, and other art-related necessities.

We reached our very first goal of $1,000!! Thank you to everyone who donated and shared. Your support and kindness left us speechless. It brought tears to our eyes yesterday knowing how many people believe in these kids and want this show to happen.

Our next goal to reach is $2,550 and will help us have just enough to get three quality starter cameras for the kids. Thank you so much again for your support and kindness. Words canʻt express how much it means to us.
