Dear generous donors! I just want to thank you in advance. I just found out that such a place as this existed where caring people can help others in need. I live on the island of Maui. The home of one of the most devastating wildfires in recent history. Everyone has been impacted by the turn of events. As you may know, our island’s economy is predicated by tourism. And after the tragic events, people who have never been to Maui were saying do not come to Maui. It has impacted business tremendously here. Slowly, it is beginning to get busy again. Earlier this year, I had to fly to Texas to take care of my mother who wasn’t in very good health and wasn’t in a very good living situation. I had a strong feeling that I needed to go see her, and two weeks from me getting on the plane to fly, she went into the ER.
I couldn’t get a straight answer from the people who were living with her in regards to her health. I would always get that she was doing fine. but when she went into the ER, I found out that she had a bad heart, and kidneys & a bunch of other things going on with her that wasn’t being told to me by anyone living there. The house was cluttered, there was a hole in the floor and the place was roach infested.
We spent a lot of money traveling home and getting mom situated only to run into incurring a lot of debt due to a slowed economy. It’s been quite challenging and I will be the first to say we find ourselves about $20,000 in the hole right now, working to fight our way back to just break even.
We just need to get everything back to being manageable again. We need $20,000 but really we appreciate whatever anyone can spare. God bless you all for being such generous and cheerful givers.
