Keizo Gates is ‘outstanding’

With all the negativity about teenagers lately, I’d like to tell you about an

outstanding Kauai teenager, Keizo Gates. Keizo is a sophomore at Kauai High


Last August I ran an appeal in Project Kokua in the Honolulu Sunday

paper, asking for a volunteer to design a website for our philanthropic

organization, ASSISTANCE LEAGUE@ of Hawaii. Keizo was on 0’ahu visiting his mom

and he responded to my ad. He said he would do this because he wants to build

his portfolio of websites to get work locally to enable him to someday buy a


Keizo took the information I gave him, along with some photos and our

logo, and designed an outstanding website. Check it out at It is dignified, always in good taste, heart tugging,

accurate and useful. And, it was free. He charged us only his expenses

(registering domain name, etc.).

We think he is an outstanding young man,

and certainly a talented one. He spent a lot of hours getting it right. He made

some good decisions about what to use and what not to use. He linked us to our

national organization. We are impressed. I hope you are too. Such a volunteer

committment for this young man!

Keizo Gates is a young man Kauai can be

proud of.

With all best wishes,

“Dot” Mason

Chairman, Public


Assistance League of Hawaii.
