“An important project for our community, local businesses and Hawaii.”
The presentation was conducted at KUPU’s office in Kakaako surrounded by a panoramic view of the ocean. Laron Miyashiro first talked about the 111-HAWAII PROJECT and its activities. John Leong then shared his activities of his non-profit organization KUPU, and expressed that the 111-HAWAII PROJECT is “a very important and wonderful project for our community, local businesses and Hawaii”. The meeting was a friendly conversation between the project and KUPU. “This donation was a very valuable result of visitors and locals purchasing our products little by little for a year. It is not much, but it is full of priceless aloha spirit towards Hawaii. I would like to present this to KUPU on behalf of all those who supported the project to raise the value of Made in Hawaii” expressed Kuni Yamamoto, and presented the donation.
