"Transforming Lives" Campaign

Dear Friends of Touch A Heart,

As 2022 comes to a close, we humbly thank you for your heartfelt support throughout yet another year full of challenges. As our community began emerging from the pandemic and our economy moved toward recovery, we found ourselves dealing with supply chain issues and rising inflation. Yet all of us at Touch A Heart have never felt more confident in our employment social enterprises, foodservice internship and apprenticeship programs, and overall mission—and that's because of your unwavering dedication and support.

One of our major projects this year was the creation of an awareness video about Touch A Heart. After months of hard work and collaboration, we're excited to finally share the video with you. It's a beautiful representation of what Touch A Heart and our ohana stands for as well as the impact we have on our community. We hope you enjoy watching the video and seeing what you've made possible.  When you click the link below, you can watch the video on our donation page:
We also know that there are many who've never heard of Touch A Heart and would be interested in learning about our work. Please share this video with your friends, family, colleagues, and other community members. We encourage you to use this as an opportunity to tell them about your personal connection and experiences as a Touch A Heart customer, volunteer, and/or donor.

We hope that you'll be inspired to share our video with others whom it would resonate with and join us in our efforts to transform lives, one heart at a time. By making a gift toward our Transforming Lives campaign, you can help us reach our $100,000 fundraising goal and send 20 interns through our foodservice training program next year. Please join our ohana and MAKE A GIFT TODAY. Donate online via the button below, in-person during our Kupuna and Family Meals pickups, or by mail at Touch A Heart, 98-820 Moanalua Rd., Unit 15-1, PMB #224, Aiea, HI 96701.

The people we serve all face immense barriers to employment, including addiction and incarceration, and are in need of our safe, judgment-free, and supportive environment as they rebuild their lives. Our goal is to first recruit, train, and graduate the interns after 8 weeks, then move them into our apprenticeship program where we can spend more time with them on job and life skills. In turn, they'll become part of our employment social enterprise team, helping with production of Kupuna and Family Meals and Baker's Heart products. This progression will allow us to increase our reach by expanding our team and providing opportunities for members to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Your support means giving the people we serve the gift of confidence, love, and acceptance, so that they can move forward in their lives as positive, contributing members of our society.

On behalf of the Touch A Heart team, thank you for your consideration and support. Any amount is truly appreciated. A little goes a long way when we put our hearts together, and we appreciate your generosity.

We wish you and yours a very happy holiday season and all the best in the upcoming year.

Robin Kumabe
Executive Director
