Got Heart?

July 24th, 2012
By



You would tink I have enough on my plate wit Da Baby, da blog, finishing up da house, printing jobs and just finished up my 19th year of volunteer coaching earlier this month..... wat more can I pile on?

Oh yeah, I wen volunteer to try help fundraise for an organization I have no connection with.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Cause they needed the help.

One of the hardest things to do is to give - or ask - when you have no connection to the cause whether it be directly or indirectly. Sometimes it's just a feeling. Sometimes it's something you care about. Sometimes you just like try and help as in dis case wea I'm trying to pitch in any way I can.

I have absolutely zero connection to the American Heart Association (AHA) and I don't have any direct family members with heart conditions nor know anyone that does but the annoying little voice in da coconut shell kept telling me to check it out. Actually in a roundabout way, we all have a common connection to AHA.... you got a heart right? :wink:

Let's be honest hea. Fundraising sucks. Asking for donations sucks even more. Da worst is getting nothing for something and not even a receipt for tax purposes. Oh wait, there's worse. Those pesky stand on da median, sign holding, traffic distracting, no shame no like work for it, can't tell if it's legit fishnet beggars. :roll:

Hea's how the American Heart Association breaks down your donation - the legit way:

- $500 will allow us to teach more than 2,500 children how to avoid obesity and live longer
- $250 saves lives by helping to distribute 8 innovative CPR Anytime kits to the community
- $100 allows one hospital to teach its patients and health professionals about the risks of stroke
- $50 gives 50 people educational materials that teach them how to personally reduce their risk of heart diseases and stroke

For more about the American Heart Association Hawaii branch, click hea.

How can you help? With a donation of course! :grin:

Donations can be made online via a secured link but the minimum for online donations is $25 but by no means is that the minimum you should feel obligated to contribute. Feel free to donate as little - or as much - as you like. Wait, let me rephrase dat. Donate as much as you're comfortably able cause we all got bills to pay, ohana to take care of so even if it's like $5, no shame cause at least you wen try give and DAT'S wat it's all about.

If you do want to give a lesser amount, a check can be sent to my work address (email me for info).

And like I mentioned earlier, getting nothing for something is not everyone's cup of tea so I'm hea to change dat. In da spirit of fundraising hea's wat you can get - sorry, its all I can afford:

$5 - 25 will get you your choice of either a custom "kama'aina" t-shirt designed & printed by me or a mid-sized poke container of my world famous kim chee.

$30 - 50 will get you either da shirt or a biggah container of kim chee.

For those who rock and donate $55 - 75, you get both da shirt and da big container of kim chee.

For those who really rock and donate $80+ you get da t-shirt, big container PLUS an I owe you for any size kim chee ANYTIME you want it (1 week notice please cause I only make 'em fresh).

Surah, I end up losing money but at least you AND the American Heart Association going make out and das all dat mattahs.

Help me to help the American Heart Association by CLICKING HEA to donate. It'll take you to the official AHA Hawai'i website wea you can join da WWD! Hui and click da "GIVE NOW" button if you choose to donate online.

Remembah, any amount is good as it goes to a great cause and you get to score too! Please pass this on to your ohana and friends cause I going need all da kokua I can get to hit my goal of raising $1000.

btw, I nevah fo'get those who donated to "Pray For Drew" and I'll get those out real soon. :grin:

Mahalos to all!








Free Shirt.... But You Gotta Earn It

Howzit Howzit!

Just wanted to share how you can score a free t-shirt!

But you gotta earn it.

And gotta register by da end of today cause I stay rolling on Hawaiian time and nevah commit till just now. :oops:

Register for the American Heart Association Heart Walk (click da link) and show up for da walk on Aug.11th which starts at 7:30am and pick up your shirt at the registration booth which opens at 6:30am.

You can choose to do either a 1-mile loop of Kapiolani Park or run a 4.5-mile circuit of Diamond Head and strollers are allowed so you know we'll be there! :grin:

Click hea American Heart Association Heart Walk to register and did I mention dat it's free? Both da t-shirt (if you register and attend da walk) and da walk itself are free! Now wea da heck you going get free stuff and help your body at da same time?

Just a heads up though dat wen you register for da walk (look for da "JOIN OUR TEAM" button on da right), da form kinda looks like you gotta donate but you don't have to - any donation is a SEPARATE link/page from da walk itself so no panic out like you have to. It's a plain and simple registration and yes, I do have my "own" page to help gather donations but more on dat latah.... like latah tonight so check back eh?

If you no can score da free t-shirt or attend da walk, check out tonight's blog on how you can help out da Wassup Wit Dat! Hui fundraising effort!

So no fo'get, register for da walk and/or check out tonight's blog on how you can be part of da WWD! team...... and score more "free stuff".

No joke..... F-R-E-E!








Painful Or Hilarious?

July 22nd, 2012

Earlier tonight aftah taking my dog out to use da bathroom, she ran across da street to my neighbors house cause they had shmall kine pah-tay. "Uncle" is always calling me ovah to drink and tonight wasn't any different.

So I thought.

Normally there's da "regulahs", his grandsons, sistahs, aunties, uncles and friends but tonight he had a couple oddah people I've nevah met before. Keep in mind dat he's about 90 years old and still pah-tays like it's 1999.

Tonight someone busted out an iPod player and anoddah Uncle had his iPod with ovah 4000+ "old" songs. He said he had a lot of 70's music but I told him it sounded like da 30's wea someone died or something. :lol:

No get me wrong, I LOVE da "oldies but goodies" kine music wit da feel good beats and rhythms (kinda sad dat I probably know more of those lyrics than today's kine) but not da kine "acid era" melancholy mood kine. You MLC'ers know wat I mean.

Aftah a few hours of partaking in refreshments, all da "old" people started jamming like they were at a sock hop and one particular Uncle stole da show. Now let me say dat I nevah get da best video cause by da time I ran back home to grab da phone, I was only able to record Uncle's second wind.

Buuuuuuuut you decide - Is da Japanee Hula painful or hilarious?


Wassup Wit Dat!

But we all had a great time laughing at and with.............. old people and all. :grin:

GOOOOOOOD Morning!

July 19th, 2012
By



WARNING: If you no can handle graphic details... no read 'den.

Aftah parking da bike dis morning, I make my way out of da garage towards my building. As I exit, da garage walkway "merges" to da buildings own walkway to a form a singular path. An "older" wahine was approaching towards me from da building, I slow up to let her "pass" (as you read further, full-on pun intended). I fall behind about seven feet so as not to intrude on her personal bubble space.

Da walk to my building is only about 20 seconds away and not halfway there I hea,

BBBBBBBLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAATTTATATATATTT!!!!

HEH? Did da wahine just.................... FUT?

Wassup Wit Dat!

It wasn't da kine sonic boom kine or da little "oops" kine. It was da nasty, okole cheeks stuck together, moist, flappy, rolling thunda, check yo' BVD's kine fut! And I was right behind to hear/smell it all!

Ugh.

I immediately held my breath and she kept walking for a few seconds then turned around and said, "Good morning".

Double Wassup Wit Dat!

We entered the building shortly aftah and like nothing happened, she went along her merry way.

I couldn't believe it, you just can't make dis kine stuff up. But then again, if it wasn't for moments li'dat, WWD! wouldn't exist now would it? :razz:

Hope your day goes on......... fut free. :lol:
