I just want to say mahalo! It is exciting to see your generosity to the islands, and we are all looking forward to the good things that will come from this
How ’bout another 50$ for the endangered species on land . . . Hawaiians who getting taxed outta their habitat.
Very generous! Mahalo!
It’s a drop in the bucket. This meta data harvester has been colluding with political parties. Elections. Public health. Fact checks are in fact someone’s opinion and not actual facts. Same PR campaign as bill gates. Don’t forget he sued native Hawaiians for the sale of their land because he now owns the pilaa ahupuaa. From mount to the sea.
Now not only did he take Hawaiin land now he can control the sea . Wake up people . Research how he “bought” the 1400 acres and the family who it belonged to.
Most of that money will be given to do nothings and the rest will be given to undergraduates and graduate students labor at the bare minimum.
