camp-luau-invitationCamp Mokuleia is having a first ever luau fundraiser to bring local children, from Waialua, Waianae, Hau’ula, Waipahu and other areas to the camp. Reverend David Turner, the Executive Director, has been overwhelmed by the task of restoring the camp from damages of the last winter’s monster waves.

The Luau Fundraiser will be on Saturday November 26 at Camp Mokuleia from 4 to 8 pm. There is also a special offer to stay in the Lodge for two nights for the cost of one night to avoid driving back to Honolulu after the luau. The luau will also celebrate David’s 60th birthday and his eco-justice ministry to the community.

After 22-y of self-funding social improvement projects, I can say that if the wealth holders in our society would spend 40-60% of their income on social improvement projects, these islands would be a much nicer place. Whether it is building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my project teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, focused in the areas of conservation, agriculture, and energy innovation. For several years I served on the Umematsu and Yasu Watada Lectures on Peace, Social Justice and the Environment, bringing voices like Frances Moore Lappe, David Korten, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg Hodge and Dr. Steven Schneider to Honolulu. I've been a social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoken to audiences across Hawaii's business, government, and educational sectors. Mixing a friendly approach, a professional curiosity, and downbeat humor, in my presentations, shift happens. At, I write about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
