Wat a day!

Noreen and her driver came in their packed blue van. Pastor T. and Jr. Pastor and I were ready. Box after box were carried into my yard. Noreen of Zori Zori Inc. told me they had a donation for the Slippah Project but the van was too full. I will go get um tomorrow.





Den...my Computa and phone went out. I was going bonkers. Finally, fell asleep and thanked God for the needed rest. Things worked out ok.

We'll be sorting and packing for the various Shelters and Public Housing tonight and tomorrow. "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! HO! HO! HO!"

Stephen, Volunteer and Tamara Martinez, Director of KPT and MWH Literacy Program.

My Twitter friend, Stephen, Antonio and I delivered Slippahs to the Literacy Office at KPT. The breakdown for KPT's distribution:

Linapuni School 300
HI Literacy Family Library 200
KPT Family Literacy 150
Solid Rock Church 200

Total = 850

Rep. Joey Manahan was at Linapuni Elementary to pass out the Slippahs!

Love and ALOHA,

Auntie Lynn

Hi Auntie! I forgot how bad morning traffic is! (less than one week out of school, and now I think I'm on vacation or something )

I'm leaving my house in about 15 minutes and headed straight to your place. See you in ... however long it takes me to get there. 9am? regardless, we'll have fun!

Yay keiki!!

PS - thanks from me too, tutusue! I wouldn't have known about this except for HIfilmmakers website that I was checking last night!

Ok...now that got me all misty eyed! Roy is a local attorney turned producer and co-founder of Island Film Group...not to mention a heckuva nice guy. His selflessness towards your project, Auntie, makes me proud to be part of the local film industry. <sniff>

Ya know what, Auntie? You've grown this project in only 3, short years...Christmas 2005 was the first. While this is the 4th Christmas, it's the 3rd year. See, you've worked 25% harder than you thought!
CONGRATULATIONS!

It was the Christmas Beach Celebration for the Leeward Coast. Various Agencies from the area were there to give out and assist their clients. It was a happy day with food, gifts and entertainment. We had just delivered to Paiolu Kaiaulu (Waianae Civic Center Emergeny Shelter) prior to going there! Aunty Rita, Director came to the truck. We gave her more boxes to distribute at the celebration!






The beautiful Leeward Coast!

Love and ALOHA,

Auntie Lynn
