Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? The Kāko'o Maui Fund.
Sponsored by the O'ahu based non-profit Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, the Kāko'o Maui Fund is providing resources that can be deployed quickly and efficiently on the ground to Hawaiian communities impacted by the Maui wildfires.
Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement is working in close collaboration with state and county leaders, nonprofit organizations, and community members to get an understanding of the quickly evolving priorities. Funding will support evolving needs, including shelter, food, financial assistance, and other services as identified by their partners doing critical work on Maui and they hav secured matching funders to incentivize small dollar donations and to support their communities. Donations received will go to Maui-based relief efforts for Native Hawaiian organizations, small businesses, 'ohana, and cultural groups.
If you don't need anything from us, consider supporting Kāko'o Maui Fund directly. If you DO find yourself in need of anything from us, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
Thanks to Emily for the nomination!
