Sing 4 Hugs, Keali’i Reichel Free Performance – Sunset On The Beach

Sing 4 Hugs Waikiki On The Beach Free ConcertFirst lets start of with the meaning of the word philanthropy.  Philanthropy is the effort or inclination to increase the well-being of humankind, as by charitable aid or donations.  That being said, you’re not going to belive this but a local family, who wishes to stay somewhat anonymous, is putting on a FREE concert on June 5th 2010 at Waikiki’s Sunset on the Beach featuring Keali’i Reichel……FOR FREE!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! – Sing 4 Hugs, Keali’i Reichel Free Performance – Waikik’s famed Sunset On The Beach

When I asked Brett why he was doing this, his answer was typical for the kind of people he and his wife Dee (kids too) are.   Brett said, “That value of giving back has been a focus in our family since day one. We’ve been blessed in our lives and thought that by encouraging the kids to give back, that they in turn would learn how to be compassionate towards others not as fortunate, or whom are facing some of life’s many challenges that we all experience at some point in our lives”.

The real benefactors of the amazing example of paying it forward is the HUGS organization in Hawaii serving Hawaii families.   HUGS has for 28 years provided support for the children throughout the Hawaiian islands whom are facing a life-threatening disease.  “By bringing attention to this unique non-profit, we felt we’d be helping to aid in their continual quest to raise funds a real challenge for any non-profit” says Brett.

In a  statement Brett said “Thanks to the huge support of family and friends working on the event with us, Dee and I look forward to being part of this free concert for the entire Oahu community by Keali’i at one of Oahu’s most beautiful venues Sunset on Beach at Waikiki Beach on Saturday, June 5th at 6:30pm. Hey…how often can one invite the whole island of Oahu to one big party let alone with Keali’i there!  Be a supporter and buy a shirt supporting the event, bring a donation to give to HUGS and share the Aloha”.

:::::big sigh::::  How unreal is it that ANYONE among our citizens here in Hawaii has made such a public call to action to bring Aloha through music, dance, culture and gift….the gift of giving.

ALOHA Dee, Brett, Torry and Leila!
