For Those Who Helped

November 17th, 2011

Just wanted to send out quick shout out to those who donated to the Pray For Drew 52 fund.

I really did appreciate all those who donated whatever they could. No matter the amount - some were very generous though - I was truly moved by the gesture all the same. It was awesome to see so many with open hearts giving what they could for a person they've never even met or known and whether it be by tangible or non-tangible means it was touching to witness.

For those who were unable to give, no worries. Times are hard or the cause wasn't yours but the main thing is that you care about something in the world and willing to give to that and that's all that matters.

As promised, I did offer to anyone who donated a free t-shirt or kim chee and that promise will not go unfulfilled. Even if you've donated privately with or without my knowledge, you're good for it. You just gotta ask.

I have kim chee freshly made ready right now and more prepared near Thanksgiving depending on the demand.

If you want the t-shirt you can choose either a chocolate or ash grey color in sizes M, L or XL. Sizes are limited so first come first served. I have custom slogans based on my private line of "kama'aina" you can choose from and that can be selected once I find out what you want.

It's something I promised I'd do for Da WWD! Hui so no shame to claim your prize. Just email me what you want and we can meet up somewhere for delivery. If the t-shirt is chosen, I'll email the details of the slogan and you choose from a half dozen different versions. We can meet up for the delivery of the shirt as well or if you want it mailed, I'll be happy to do that as well but ask that postage be sent back to me after you receive the shirt.

Everything is on the honor system and God is watching so I'm not worried. :grin:

Let me know what you guys want and Mahalo Nui Loa for caring and showing true aloha!

    So many folks in need. Not enough cash to help all of them. Worst part is needing to choose who or what gets the little bit of help.

    Why do so many folks seem to remember the needy only during this time of year? What about the rest of the year? That is what makes it so difficult.

    Bravo to everyone who is able to help anyone in need!

    We all try and do our part.

    How is Drew doing?

    I haven't gotten an update since they want to keep things private but I do know that Drew was in acoma for a month though. I'd like to keep posting updates but on behalf of the family's wishes I will respect that.

    If only we had pockets dat nevah could be bottomed out.

    I believe its about self-reflection. You realize dat oddahs don't have wat you got and you feel bad about it. Plus, da "needy" is publicized much more.

    Bravo to everyone who is able to help anyone in need!

    Rogah dat!


  9. M:

    BL, she walked past the front of my truck, I should have taken a picture with my phone. I get off at 3:30, I'll hang around at work till afta 4 tomorrow and I'll stop by. I'll call you first.

    I just ran out but should be making some more next week. Shoot me an email and no worries, I take kea.

    M - was she a really big (kinda dirty) lady? I think I saw her on Magic Island earlier that day!

    I for one prefer to help causes that feel closer to home rather than those backed by some large distant organization.

    BL - Not going to be on island much longer but will be back for christmas - can I get a raincheck?
