As Maui mourns and recovery efforts continue, there are many ways to continue to support the Maui community from afar beyond the aid efforts in the post below. Many small businesses on Maui rely on tourism and are likely already seeing losses in sales, jobs and activity. Please, support them however you can. I have provided a long, but by no means exhaustive, list below of shops and businesses that have an online presence and that can ship right to your door! Maui has so much to offer – this is just a snippet.
And if you have your favorite restaurants, coffee shops, shave ice spots or ice cream parlors – please, contribute to their staff funds, buy gift cards for future visits or merchandise from their websites. If you need some inspiration, some of my favorites are listed in my Maui Travel Guide.
A hui hou!
