Oh Lord, not KEO!!! Better make sure the money donated is actually spent on the homeless and victims of the flood. They treat their clientele like trash. Heartless and demeaning. The place is filthy too. I’ve heard that their homeless shelter is worse than jail. Just ask around. True story!
Much aloha to you Priscilla and Mark for your very generous donations!
Thank you Mark and Priscilla for all your support to our beloved Kauai!
They may have gotten some (well-deserved) bad press lately, but they are good kids at heart and their contribution is certainly generous. I believe in the long run they will make a positive impact on the north(east) shore of Kauai.
Nice! and Thank you for your donation, So….Now how about not buying up more of the Kilauea properties and stealing it from the Kauai people, dont you already own enough of Kauai!
Amazing that some people use a disaster and good will from others as a forum for their personal gain. It is your right to say what you believe but it is others right to call you on self serving crap.
Living through the storm on the north shore and seeing how everyone has come together to help each other, I am impressed with the goodness in people. One thing that really stood out in the photos of the rescues and post assessment is that most people were smiling. This storm shows what can happen when we all work together instead of complain.
As a Kauai resident I want everyone helping to know that we all are deeply moved by the out pouring of all you are doing. Most people are giving what they can to recover from this devastation and will continue to do so until recovery is complete. Thank you for your sincere Aloha!
