As of this writing, 114 people have lost their life after the wildfires tragically destroyed everything in sight. There are still people missing in fact as families try to piece things together to just live.

I have only been to Hawaii (Oahu) one time. But I have never been to a place that was so beautiful and the people were so kind. It is seriously a breathtaking experience. So, my heart definitely aches for those affected by these wildfires.

My wife and I actually plan on going back to Oahu in September. When we first heard the news, we naturally thought about postponing our trip. After hearing from locals, especially business owners saying how much they depend on tourism we decided to keep the trip and also help out while we are there.

It truly is heartbreaking to see the devastation that has happened in Maui. If you have the means, please donate to one of the organizations listed above.
