We have changed the organization we are raising funds for to Maui Food Bank. Maui Mutual Aid is an excellent organization with great community support, but we realized we needed to go with a 501c3 organization with an event of this scale. We are happy to be helping the people of Maui during this time.
On August 8, 2023, wildfires fueled by a dry summer and hurricane winds spread across the island of Maui. On August 9, the city of Lahaina fell victim to the flames, leaving residents with no choice but to run into the sea to escape the fire.
With fires still burning in outlying areas, the fight is not over for emergency responders. For the survivors returning to find their lives in ashes, however, a new struggle is only beginning.
Moments like this can leave us feeling helpless, but Second Life is known for its ability to come together in support of those in need. We are asking you to do that again today.
The Maui Wildfire Relief Donation Drive will be held from Saturday, August 19 to Saturday, August 26. This will be a 100% donation event, with ALL proceeds going to Maui Food Bank, a verified organization providing food to the hungry in Maui.
This is an EMERGENCY fundraiser. Please be prepared to come together and work as a group to make this happen on such short notice.
