In the wake of emergencies and natural disasters, social media provides an avenue for those looking to raise money or contribute to a need.

Following the heavy rains and flooding that have inundated Kauai and East Oahu this week, dozens of fundraising efforts have sprung up on the popular fundraising platform

Here are some of the notable relief campaigns online.



Aloha School Early Learning Center

The campaign, started by Ashley Guerrero, is looking to raise $20,000 for the Hanalei School which was flooded with two feet of water.

Anahola Taro Patch

Aletta Gonzales is trying to raise $5,500 for Jon Pia, owner of the Anahola Taro Patch, which experienced massive flooding. The money will be used to rebuild infrastructure, including fixing water lines, debris removal, as well as rebuilding the farm’s kitchen and small walking bridge.

Kauai canoe clubs

Rocco April, vice president of Hui O Mana Ka Puuwai and secretary of Kauai Outrigger Association, is looking to raise $200,000 for the Hanalei Canoe Club and Namolokama Canoe Club, which he said have lost canoes and equipment.
