As war wears on, her efforts to help her friends and neighbors are all driven by her spirit of aloha: the understanding that everyone is connected and that joy and pain are shared. There will be 3 sittings: 10am, 11:30am, and 1pm. We will be giving away a Nanea doll to one of the girls that attends. Space is limited and reservations are required. Donations welcome.
