SAVE THE KA'IWI COAST!!
Hi everyone, if I could have your attention for a couple of seconds I would be extremely grateful if you could donate or share this with others.
The Ka'iwi Coast line is a beautiful place and is one of my favorite places to go to on the island. Being born and raised here, I practically grew up on the beaches that makeup the shoreline. It is celebrated by locals and tourists alike for the many things the land has to offer–crystal clear waters, great pounding waves for body surfing, accessible fishing, tide pools to observe sea life, a popular hike to the Makapu'u Lighthouse, and on most days views of Moloka'i, Lana'i, and Maui.
With so much of our beautiful natural lands in Hawai'i (on O'ahu especially), being lost to construction developments at rapid rates, it hurts my heart that this place could be lost to privatized wealth and access to public land become stripped away. The goal is to raise $500,000 by August 30th, in order to secure the land to allow public use for years to come.
I know there are bigger issues in this world, but please, this land is my home and even though many locals, myself included, find it hard to live here due to high prices, we find our happiness and peace in the land around us. I would love to be able to share these beautiful lands with everyone for years to come.
I know the tumblr community can and has made huge impacts when it comes to social issues, so if you could kindly share or even donate a dollar, I would be extremely grateful.Thank you so much for your time!
