Title: Hawaii’s Endless Waterfalls


Location: Waipio Valley, Hawai’i (The Big Island), Hawaii, USA

Description: The valleys on the Hawaiian Islands have a seemingly endless supply of waterfalls. Some of the longest waterfalls, when measured as total drop from top to bottom, live here and resemble this example from the boyhood home of King Kamehameha I in Waipio Valley.

For a while I am going to ask for your assistance in helping those in Nepal rebuild their lives. Average citizens don’t have insurance and I would not trust the inept and corrupt government to help where it is needed most.

I am going to focus on two non-profits I know have ties in the country (read: employees with families who understand where funds can help the most) for my pleas for assistance.

The first is Planeterra, a non-profit run by G Adventures. The second is the Paldorje Sherpa Foundation run by Sherpa Adventure Gear. Both of these charities are run by their parent company, who covers all their overhead so that 100% of donations go to those in need. Both of these companies do the right thing and care for the people of Nepal greatly. Both have funds set up specifically to help quake victims.

Please consider donating today.
