Although I do not have a direct connection to Legal Aid, I have a deep fondness for Hawaii and a true wish for all people who are in need have access to the help they require, legal or any other means. My donation is one way I can make a gesture to help the people of Hawaii.
I first visited Hawaii in 2016 and in the weeks before the trip, I read some of the history of Hawaii. When I arrived in Honolulu, I felt an immediate embrace by Hawaii's energy. That sensation has never left me and I plan to continue to give what I can to help improve life for the people of Hawaii and the land as well.
I also appreciate the work done by Legal Aid organizations. I know the law is a complicated world and for attorneys to give their expertise is a noble gesture. Since many hurdles in our society require the aid of a lawyer, I think it is one of the areas that should be an essential service, available to everyone.
