Spirit of Easter provides for the homeless

While most families go to church and then have brunch or a family get together for Easter. . .we usually wake up and decorate eggs. . .take a dip in the ocean. . and then  have a wonderful Easter Dinner that our Grandmother cooks for us. . .

This morning was a bit different.  Instead of waking up to decorate eggs, I notice that my mom was packing toys in bags.  She had us load them into the van.  Everything happened so fast.  The next thing you know we were near the Wai'anae Boat Harbor.  My mom had us label 28 toys with boys and girls name on them ranging from 6 months to 15 years old.  All of a sudden, my mom's eyesight became blurry because of the vog so she asked me to look for the lady in charge.  To my surprise, it was Twinkle, who is  the leader of Pu'uhonua o Wai'anae Village.  Like our mom, Twinkle is very caring and have lots of Aloha to give anyone who comes to her for help.  We wanted to pass out the toys to the children but we didn't  want to interrupt their Easter festivities and our mom wanted to make sure we do what we usually do on Easter.   

On behalf of our 'ohana, we would like to thank our family and friends who continue to help us with our community service projects. We are truly blessed.
