4. Donate

Listed with the packages are recommended donation prices. These represent the actual cost of the supplies. We are not asking for payment for the supplies because we know that some kupuna are unable to afford it.

However, we encourage you to donate if you can. This project needs the funds to be able to sustain and service other kupuna island wide. If possible, please consider donating either the full price of the package or a fraction of it. Mahalo!
