HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
A visit to the 9th Ward of New Orleans was heartbreaking for us. More than three years after Hurricane Katrina left horrific devastation in it’s wake and entire blocks remained untouched and unlivable. Helping the folks at Habitat for Humanity build a home for one long-suffering family was hugely rewarding, and served to remind us how the smallest of gestures can be life-changing for those less fortunate.Work Hard Play Hard, an awesome service group from University of Hawaii Hilo asked us to help them get up to the summit of Mauna Kea and remove litter and rubbish. Always a great experience to work with these guys, and it’s so refreshing to see a dedicated group of students working to improve their environment for the benefit of everyone who lives, works and visits Hawaii!
