Kokua … Aloha In Action


I love the Hawaiian word ALOHA, especially after learning about  the deeper meaning of Aloha.  Next to aloha, there is another Hawaiian word that I truly like, and that is KOKUA.  To me, Kokua means  “aloha in action” . And here’s what the dictionary says about it:


Help, aid, assistance, relief, assistant, associate, deputy,helper; co-operation; to help, assist, support, accommodate.

I have been very busy lately (actually not just lately but almost always).  There are many events, projects and activities on Maui that I want to write about to show my KOKUA.  The thing is I can’t find the time to focus and write a full post for each of them (this busy working mama’s plate is full).

However, these events, projects and activities are all with a good cause  and I will feel bad if I neglect to share them with you. So I am just going to lump them all together here on this post and hope that you will be able to attend and support at least one, better yet all these.

    I feel like you, Liza. I’ve been very busy too! Happy to start the new year with a bang but also not able to contribute my time to all the wonderful kokua events. My gifts will go out in other ways…

    Interesting, I didn’t know that’s what Kokua meant. Aloha in action, I’ll definitely have to remember that. By the way, Happy 2013.
