My Personal Fundraising Page

Aloha Ohana!

As many of you know I am active in the Mankind Project, a non for profit organization supporting men to cultivate purpose-driven emotional intelligence, empowerment, service, leadership, and community for 21st century masculinity.  

It is through MKP that I became aware of Boys to Men Mentoring, a nonprofit organization that is committed to creating communities of dedicated men who are able to guide and support at-risk, often fatherless, boys on their journey to manhood.  Every week Boys to Men mentors show up at middle schools, high schools, and community centers to give teenage boys a community of men who listen, encourage, and empower them.  This community based mentoring approach gives boys a variety of positive male role models who show up consistently, tell the truth about their struggles as men, ask the boys what kind of man they want to be, praise them for their gifts, support them when they mess up, and encourage them to become the man they want to be.

This year I am supporting Boys to Men Mentoring Hawaii on their 100 Wave Challenge fundraising event October 27, 2018.  This is an annual surfing event in which hundreds of surfers pledge to raise a minimum of $1,000 each and attempt to catch 100 waves in one day to help raise money and awareness for the organization.  This is the first time Hawaii has parrticpate in the 100 Wave Challenge. We are hopeful it will both bring AWARENESS to the problem of fatherlessness and at-risk youth here in Hawaii, as well as INSPIRE community participation in supporting our youth.  

I grately appreidate any financial support you can diret to this great program. 

PLEASE FORWARD this page to others that you think will resonate with this mission and want to support Boys to Men Mentoring. 

Thank you for caring and taking an action.
