Lahaina Fire - Our Commitment & How to Help

Lahaina Fire - Our Commitment & How to Help

To our partners, customers, and everyone affected by the Lahaina Fire

Fueled by strong winds and a dry summer, fire has swept across Maui, starting in the tranquil town of Lahaina, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. We at Melomys have watched with heavy hearts as these communities grapple with the scale of this disaster.

Office of the Governor Tweet on August 9th, 2023 "As Hawai‘i residents start to organize resources and solicit donations to help the victims of wildfires devastating West Maui, we are alerting residents to use caution when choosing where to send their money and donations."

Among those affected are several of our treasured partners in Lahaina. These individuals and businesses are more than just partners to us; they are family. Their safety and well-being are of paramount importance to us. In these trying times, we want to extend our deepest concerns and well wishes to them. We are actively reaching out, checking on their status, and offering any support that we can provide.

The environmental disaster calls on us at Melomys to stand together in times of crisis, to lend a helping hand to our neighbors, and to contribute to the collective effort of rebuilding and healing. While Melomys is small, we are stepping up.

From now through September 30th, Melomys will donate 5% of profits towards Maui United Way to support those impacted by the Maui Fires. We understand that the road to recovery will be long and challenging, but we also believe in the resilience of people and that we can come together to make a positive impact.

We invite you all to join us in this endeavor. Whether it's by supporting our products, spreading the word about the relief efforts, or contributing directly to the cause, every action counts. Together, we can help our communities rise from the ashes, stronger and more united than ever.

To our partners, our customers, and everyone affected by the Maui Fires, we want you to know that you are not alone. You are in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in every step we take toward supporting the relief efforts. We stand with you, today and always.

How you can help

When donating money for fire relief, it is important to research and find reputable charities and organizations that are helping those impacted by the fires. Make sure the charity is legitimate and that your donation will be used towards providing aid in the form of food, shelter, supplies or other ways that will help those in need. Be wary of any online solicitations or donations through non-secure sites. Additionally, double check to make sure you are not donating to any fraudulent campaigns that have been created with the sole purpose of taking advantage of headlines and a tragic situation. Here are some verified options:

  1. Maui Fire Relief Fund
  2. Maui Humane Society
  3. GoFundMe
  4. CNN Impact Your World
  5. Redcross
