Latter-day Saints in Hawaii net funds for Haiti relief effort

A group of Mormons in the Kaneohe 2nd Ward, Kaneohe Hawaii Stake — in an attempt to heed the First Presidency's call to help the people affected by the disaster in Haiti — of their own initiative conducted a unique fundraiser on Jan. 18.

Eight Latter-day Saints, including children, participated in the Martin Luther King Jr. parade along Waikiki Beach. Working in partnership with the Hawaii chapter of the Martin Luther King Coalition and the Hawaii Red Cross, the members used hand trucks with lined garbage cans and fishnets to collect donations along the parade route. In the one-hour walk, the group collected $3,700 from spectators. The money raised was given to the Hawaii Red Cross for the Haiti relief effort.
