THE BENEFICIARIESHugs Hawaii – Hugs mission: To strengthen Hawaii's families and improve their quality of life as they face the emotional and financial hardships of caring for a seriously ill child. Over the years, HUGS has grown to meet the emotional and financial needs of more families from across the state, helping them cope with the effects of a childhood illness. HUGS serve Hawaii children, ages birth to 21 years, who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness that ranges from cancer, cardiac issues, and liver and kidney ailments, to chromosomal defects. Project Shine Hawaii - Russell Tanoue’ s Project Shine Hawaii launched in 2001 and featured on KHNL News. A program that offers free makeovers and photo sessions to people fighting cancer and other diseases, victims of domestic violence, at-risk teens and teenagers rehabilitated from drug abuse. The first three participants of Russell Tanoue’ s Project Shine were Lessa Loftin, who has lupus, Leila Moniz who has been suffering for 10 years battling chronic disc disease, and Deborah Ardolf, a middle-aged speech pathologist who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, an incurable autoimmune disease. All participants say that their experience with Tanoue and Project Shine changed their lives forever. They felt special. They felt beautiful.  As Leila Moniz expressed, “He changed my whole life.”   Adolf adds, “I think that’s his gift, he’s able to dig down deep and get what’s really inside you.”  Their spirits were restored. That gift is something they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. – By Katie Young Yamanaka Since 2001, Project Shine Hawaii has contributed funds/support to American Cancer Society, American War Heroes, the Aloha Medical Mission, Feeding the homeless, HUGS, United Way, Community Helping Schools, At-risk Teens from Palama Settlement, teens against bullying, and individuals dealing with life challenging issues.
