Hurricane Sandy Bracelet Sale At MHS
A group of teachers living in Haleiwa has launched a fundraiser for storm relief by selling “Sea2Sea” bracelets, and readers can buy them for $5 each at the next Mililani High School ABC Craft Fair, set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 8 in the school gym and parking lot.
“Some of us are from the East Coast and were directly affected by Hurricane Sandy,” explained Megan Dolan, a fundraising organizer who teaches at MHS. “Our bracelets represent us spreading the aloha spirit and helping out from one coast to another. All proceeds go directly to Waves for Water.”
Dolan is a native of Rockaway, N.Y., and her family home sustained major flood damage from the Oct. 29-30 superstorm that ravaged parts of the East Coast. Others in the group are from affected homes in New Jersey, but are living here and teaching at Mililani High and Ewa Elementary schools.
Though founded on clean water initiatives, the nonprofit Waves for Water (W4W) currently is focused on initial survival needs of storm victims, as it states on its website, serving “as a bridge connecting the global surf community directly to our brothers and sisters in need along the East Coast.”
