Wounded Warrior Project will help Hawaii’s veterans

Aloha on this Hawaiian Thursday. Today I wanted to share a project that hits close to home. Many veterans live here in Hawaii. Many of them are injured and need our help.

“The postings on this site are my own and don’t represent Wounded Warrior Project’s positions, strategies, or opinions.”

Thank you for your interest in Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP). WWP relies on the passionate support of many dedicated individuals who help raise awareness about the needs of injured service men and women by providing unique, direct programs and services to meet warrior needs. There are several ways you can be involved with Wounded Warrior Project’s mission. The best way to be involved is through monetary contributions, by hosting an event, volunteering or participating in Soldier Ride.

Hosting an Event:
The best way to get started with your idea is to visit the following link: http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org . Once there, you can find the information you need for a successful event through the Proud Supporter Guidelines and FAQs. First, we will require that you register your fundraiser with us so that we may approve your idea. Please feel free to email  events at woundedwarriorproject.org with any questions or concerns.

To learn more about our program, please feel free to visit our volunteer page at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org Take a look at our opportunities and fill out the volunteer form to join our network. When an opportunity comes available in your area, one of our representatives will contact you. If you are looking to volunteer with veterans right away, I would suggest referencing the website, http://www.volunteer.va.gov/apps/Volunte…. Using your zip code, you can contact the facility nearest you for volunteer opportunities.

Soldier Ride:
Soldier Ride is a Wounded Warrior Project initiative that provides adaptive cycling opportunities across the country to help wounded warriors restore their physical and emotional well-being. While Soldier Ride has inspired spectators for years, the experience is now open to everyone, allowing the public the opportunity to ride alongside our warriors as they convey a positive message of recovery. To learn more about Soldier Ride, go to www.soldierride.org.

Please take the time to see if there is anything you can do to help in this wonderful project.

Ian Lindsey Photography will have a showing with Puako Sunsets and more

Aloha everyone,

Health In Motion Massage Studio is proud to showcase the fine art photography of Ian Lindsey at our studio in Hawi on
Saturday, September 29th from 3 pm until pau. We are so exited to share with the community, this local artist who captures
our island home with such stunning and spectacular photographs. Come prepared to be blown away!

Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, Ian Lindsey was able to spend his childhood in a locale
that others can only dream about. He comes from a long line of Waimea ranchers and has learned
to love and respect the land and its raw beauty. His roots run deep into the earth where he finds his
inspiration and drive for capturing breathtaking images of nature.

Growing up along the Pacific, surfing and spending so much of his life in the water… Ian finds comfort
and intense enjoyment being in the waves and in the environment he loves so much. Living in Puako,
Ian enjoyed watching the sunset every day from his own backyard. Inspired, he picked up a camera
and began to capture this surreal beauty. Since then, Ian Lindsey has developed a style all his own,
which expands to much more than sunsets. With a hunger for more, he’s traveled around the world from
the medieval villages of Europe to the volcanoes of Central America.

“I love the way a camera allows you to capture light in the way it was when you were there, a moment frozen
in time. Photography allows you to put unique perspectives on things that would otherwise seem ordinary.
It has completely changed the way I view the world around me. I now find beauty in things that often get overlooked.”


Come early for live music by local talent Donnie B, who will be playing from about 3-5pm. We will also be serving light pupus and
refreshments all afternoon. Feel free to call us at (808)889-1919 for more information. Please bring all your friends and lets show our support!!

Much aloha and hope to see you there next Saturday,

Ambre Lindsey, LMT
