As part of Kailua Honey’s core values, we believe in giving back to non-profit organizations that do good in our communities. Each year, we will select a non-profit organization to receive a portion of our sales of Kailua Honey branded merchandise, and a select few will receive 5% of all sales designated in their name even after this period has ended.
We know there are a lot of people who volunteer their time at small nonprofits that work with very little resources to do an enormous amount of good for our Hawai’i and we want to recognize and support some of the unsung heroes of these organizations. We hope you will join us.
2022: Kokonut Koalition
Kokonut Koalition is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting, preserving and rehabilitating the Koko Crater Stairs in Honolulu Hawaii. It is a small organization that is volunteer-driven but their efforts have enourmous impacts on hikers enjoying Koko Crater stairs. Koko Crater is a historical tramway built during World War II, and it is deeply treasured by the hiking community. Please join us in supporting Kokonut Koalition by purchasing a t-shirt or tank top. All proceeds during the month of February and March will be donated, and a portion of proceeds will be donated throughout the year. Please wear your t-shirt, go for a hike, and tag us on Instagram, @kailuahoneyoahu! Kokonut Koalition holds area cleanups and workdays throughout the year. You can follow them on Instagram to know when they are.
2021: Surfrider Foundation - Oahu Chapter
We are so excited to announce that our 2021 partner for our merchandise program will be the Surfrider Foundation Oahu chapter. To celebrate our birthday months of February and November, we will be running a special campaign to donate 100% of all proceeds of our merchandise sales to Surfrider Oahu.
The campaign will start on February 6 and will end on February 18. All purchased merchandise will be mailed out at the end of the campaign, meaning if you purchase your epic merch on Feb. 6, it won’t be printed until the end of the campaign on Feb. 18, so please be patient. The estimated shipping date is March 1, 2021.
What we’d like you awesome people to do is to wear your merch and tag @KailuaHoneyOahu and @SurfriderOahu on Instagram or Facebook while you’re having fun in the great outdoors, or better yet, while you mālama ‘āina.
What? You don’t know what mālama ‘āina means? It means to take care of the land. Here are some awesome mālama ‘āina activities:
- Start composting your food waste
- Plant native trees and avoid the use of harmful pesticides and herbicides, etc.
- Go for a beach or trail cleanup
- Say no to single-use plastics
- Keep a reusable shopping bag and reusable straws & cutlery in your car and use them instead of plastics
