From Java on the Rock

IMPORTANT:  IndieGoGo campaign for Fukushima Kids here.  $1730 raised so far! Campaign continues till the end of this year, Dec 31, 2013. We aim to raise $13000:
Java on the Rock is my favorite cafe located on makai (ocean) side of Alii Drive in Kailua Kona, Hawai'i.  They have a coffee farm and roast their own famous and award winning Kona coffee, which is really popular and tasty.

Gen and I would like to walk to this place as often as we can from our house(takes about 30 minutes). It is our morning exercise and all the walk is so pleasant looking at Kailua Bay coming downand Hualalai Mountain going up.  What I like most is the sandy floor where you can put your bare feet in, in addition to the view and location where you get to see turtles and dolphins often.

The owner (Andrea, Bruce) is kindly inviting Fukushima Kids to Java on the Rock for a breakfast and we mean to do that on Dec 27, only 9 days from now.

Fukushima Kids are arriving to Kona in 3 days (Dec 21) and we are getting busier and busier. Here is an event to welcome the kids and we would like to pack the hall of 300 people at Hualalai Academy.  If you happen to be here in Kona, please join us to meet and cheer up the children from Fukushima.
We are still trying to raise money to pay for all the costs including airfares, food, lodging, transportations and activities of 8 people for 2 weeks. Hawaii is an expensive place, but it is worth the effort as this may be a life changing experience for the children.

3 boys are from the Kayak club in Fukushima and I am asking canoe clubs in Honaunau, Keauhou and Kona to sponsor the canoeing experience for the children.

I am very grateful and happy to be able to organize all of those activities thanks to the generosity of many people in Kona.

Mahalo mahalo!
