The island of Maui, Hawaii has had a horrific event that will NEVER forget for thousands of residents. As of Sunday morning August 13, 2023, the death toll had climbed to 90 with still many missing to date. This is the worse wildfire devastation and loss of life in the history of Hawaii.

We ask all those who have the ability to give back to those that can do so and help in any way. We as a world are in a major climate change that is way beyond global warming beginning.

Furthermore, many other events around the globe that have unfolded since spring 2023 until now are sounding alarms with the world at a dangerous decline of stability as we once knew. Temperatures from now until 2026 will continue to break summer records and cause for major concern. We need to act and prepare for change now.
