    Merry Christmas!

    I've sooo busy with moving, working 12 hr. shifts and trying to set up the delivery foa the Leeward Coast. It's ALL GOOD.

    Something is wrong with my camera and I can't upload the pictures taken at MWH. The Celebration was awesome. Kids and adults were fed, given slippahs, books, stuffed animals and toys. The Smiles ~ Priceless.

    Love and ALOHA,

    ALWAYS good to hear that, Lynn - thank you for creating this annual Christmas gift for all of us to enjoy, thanks also to Blaine for his efforts to make it work and to make it grow, and to your entire team for once again showing us how to make the improvements that we want to see in our shared world.

    Congratulations, Auntie. There are so many tents along the beach in Nanakuli. I'm sure they appreciated your kindness.

    Tutusue, It was everyone who was involved far and near.

    And now betta late den neva. LOL

    The Report of the Christmas Celebration of MHW.

    Ok....here we go.

    On December 21, 2009

    We went to Mayor Wright Housing.

    The Hot Dogs, Chile, Cheese, Buns, Snacks, Jalepenos, were donated by Sharon Black and KauKau Wagon Foundation.

    This year we coordinated the Christmas Celebration with the Mayor Wright Housing Tenant Association and Family Literacy Program. Over six-hundred received ukapila stuffed animals, videos, books, toys, and slippahs.

    Our volunteers included Securitas Employees, Pauline Young, Jacque De Fretias, Tana Toetu and myself. Military Spouse, Vonnie. And my Hanai Son, Lomi. Tenants of MWH volunteered as well.

    The line was L O N G. It stretched from the one end of the building into the Tenant Association Office out the back. Christmas Music filled the air. Everyone was happy from little ones to the elderly. Seeing my fellow neighbors of years past once again brought memories of time gone by. Here I was again...bringing Slippahs and goodies to them. This is where it started, Five years ago.







    Love and ALOHA,

    The Leeward Coast Delivery.

    We arrived at the break of dawn at our meeting place in Maile. PK, my brother-in-law Rick, my boss Pauline, co-worker Jacque, Military Couple Vonnie and James. Although Lomi wasn't with us, he played a big part in this year's delivery. And my dear readers, I don't know what became of the pictures. I don't make excuses. What I will do is tell you of the delivery.

    From the end of the Leeward Coast we began. Rick our messenger going out into the camps and letting the people know we were there. One by one they came out. Some expected us on Saturday and scolded us for not coming. LOL They stood in line patiently by the truck and waited their turns as we distributed the Scotts Slippahs and also the Shirts for the men. One Local Man tore the wrapping from the package of the shirt and put the shirt on and said "Wat...I look handsome now?" And he stood proud with his chest out and walked away smiling.

    At another site down the road, a man with one leg came up to me. "Auntie, Auntie, remember me?" How could I forget. I looked down at his right foot and saw the green worn slippah from last year. I smiled and got a Scotts and gave him a honi honi and told him I'd be back next year!

    The tents were many. Children less which is great. The restrooms which were pilau and unfit for human use is all fixed. Really. It was the first thing I checked. And used. It was CLEANED.

    Yes, it is dangerous to go out as we do. Anything can happen. Which is why, Love and ALOHA must ALWAYS BE SHOWN!! We are not there to judge or to say anything that can hurt anyone's feelings.

    To see faces light up is what it's all about.

    Our mission is not through. It's far from being over.

    I think a size 11 or 12 would have been okay yeah? Cuz das my kid's sizes. I used to buy cheap slippers for them because they would lose or break the other side within one or two months. I think I'll buy the more expensive slippers now so I can donate them to your project when it's time.

    I'm not going to celebrate until 12:01 tomorrow morning. I had a bad vision all my life that I wouldn't make it to 50. The vision changed a few weeks ago and I'm waiting to see if it's true.

    But Size 11! Great!!

    The MWH Annual Slippah Christmas Celebration will be held on
    December 22, 2010 (Wed. at 6:00 p.m.)
    Since we began, Kaukau Wagon has sponsored this event and will be sponsoring it again.

    I apologize for the site being down. It is working and accepting donations. We are asking for can goods, toys, stuffed animals, and clothes too. 100% goes to the Keiki and their Ohana. This Foundation started here on HawaiiThreads.com. It is our Foundation. It is our Story of Miracles.

    Let the Magic of Christmas begin!!!
