Saying Thank You for a Cause with Project Mahalo

king's hawaiian

Thank you is one of the first phrases I taught my kids to say. P’Diddy could baby sign Thank you before any words came out of his mouth.

I am a very firm believer in showing thanks to everyone around. Sometimes I even think to myself, am I saying it too much? That is a dumb thought because you can’t say it enough to those who deserve it!

I realized lately that I learned this from my mom. She just moved half way across the country to live with us and do you know what was on her list on her first day here? To go to the store to buy Thank You notes to all the people back home that gave her gifts or helped her on her journey here. She now has hand cramp for writing so many! Don’t you love receiving a hand written note in the mail say Thanks? I see it less and less these days and it makes me sad.

A couple of weeks ago was Teacher Appreciation Week at school and everyday my boys brought their teachers a different token of their affection. Believe me when I say, they loved making/buying those gifts probably more the teacher liked receiving them. Isn’t that what Giving Thanks is all about?

King’s Hawaiian Project Mahalo believes it is…that giving without expecting anything in return is how we should live. It brings joy to everyone around you. Right?

Maholo means Thank You in Hawaiian and King’s Hawaiian wants to say 25,000 of them. They are partnered with four awesome charities who are all going to receive at least a $10,000 donation. Vote now for your favorite one and they will receive $25,000! How awesome is that?

I voted for Big Brothers and Big Sisters because I have a friend who participates with that organization and I love hearing her stories on how she is helping her young brother in life.

Go Vote at Project Mahalo! And comment below that you did – you’ll be entered to win a $100 gift card and $100 goes towards one of the four Project Mahalo charities too! 🙂

You can say thank you to these wonderful charities- Big Brothers Big Sisters, Meals On Wheels Association of America, Family Caregiver Alliance, and One Warm Coat by voting for them on www.kingshawaiian.com/project-mahalo.
