KOKA and KHON Announce Updated Laulima Giving Program
HONOLULU, HAWAII – March 4, 2013
KHON2's holiday giving program is getting a makeover after more than 20 years of helping struggling islanders have a brighter christmas through the Lokahi Giving Project.
We are excited to announce a new chapter, name and logo for our holiday giving program.
With the holidays just around the corner, KHON2 is once again gearing up for it's annual holiday collection drives across the state. While our core mission, values, and fundraising drives will remain almost entirely unchanged - one thing will be new.
KHON2 has created a new name for its holiday giving organization. It's called the Laulima Giving Program, meaning many hands working together.
In order to achieve KHON2's goal of assisting struggling families, working together is imperative. That's why we've partnered with an established and proven island charity, Keiki O Ka 'Aina Family Learning Centers, who has been serving island families for more than 17 years.
"We're looking to work with the elderly, the working poor, with people who are struggling, maybe people who have had a catastrophic event in their life," says Momi Akana of Keiki O Ka 'Aina
Keiki O Ka 'Aina will be working with other social service agencies to find the most deserving families needing help this holiday season. But they're counting on YOU to help provide those needs.
"There are lots of things that we could get from businesses, there are things we may have to purchase on our own or get from donations from our viewers, but we're looking at getting lots of people working together, laulima, everyone holding hands, we can do this together. It's a kakou thing," Akana says.
The Laulima Giving Program represents a new chapter for KHON2's giving program that we're very excited about!
