Mahalo #ProjectMahalo

Since becoming a Mom, I’ve discovered the joy of giving. There is nothing better than watching your child open something you’ve bought for them or playing with something you made for them or even the look on their face when you give them a special treat. When you become a parent you give without expecting anything in return (except for maybe a little gratitude).

Being able to give and not expect anything in return is an amazing feeling. It’s a way to say “Thank You”, thank you for being you, thank you for being in my life. There are so many ways that you can do this for the people you love. I’m sure you could come up with some right now, but in case you need a little help, here’s some things that I try to do.

Saying “Thank You” out loud may seem like an obvious one, but how many times have you walked into the kitchen and seen your spouse unloading the dishwasher and instead of saying thank you, you think “finally” or “it’s about time”? Instead say Thank You and see how it changes your daily routine!

Giving without expecting anything in return is a major part of Hawaiian culture and a core value of King’s Hawaiian. For Hawaiians it’s not just about giving, it’s a way to say “Thank You”. It’s a way to bring joy and happiness to the people around you. For this reason King’s Hawaiian has started Project Mahalo.

Mahalo means“Thank You” in Hawaiian.

King’s Hawaiian wants you to visit their Project Mahalo website and vote for the charity that you feel best shows the Hawaiian culture of Mahalo. There are four charities you can choose from

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
  • Family Caregiver Alliance
  • Meals on Wheels Association of America
  • One Warm Coat

Each charity will receive a minimum of $10,000 and the charity that gets the highest number of votes will receive $25,000

Mahalo is the Hawaiian word for thank you. You can say thank you to these wonderful charities- Big Brothers Big Sisters, Meals On Wheels Association of America, Family Caregiver Alliance, and One Warm Coat by voting for them on www.kingshawaiian.com/project-mahalo.

All charities will receive $10k, but the winner with the most votes will receive $25k.

    Your words… ” how many times have you walked into the kitchen and seen your spouse unloading the dishwasher and instead of saying thank you, you think “finally” or “it’s about time”? Instead say Thank You and see how it changes your daily routine!” really stuck with me. I find myself in this exact spot far too often. I need to say thank you more and I am going to make a conscious effort to do so.
