All donations will be gratefully accepted. Individuals and groups wishing to donate lei to honor the kūpuna of Kalaupapa will be able to drop off their lei at designated locations on all islands, contact us if you wish to make a donation.
In an effort to protect against transporting invasive species from neighbor islands to Molokai, and most especially to the Makanalua peninsula, we are requesting that only LEI LĀʻĪ (ti leaf lei) be made and donated from all islands (except Molokai).
We further request that individuals and groups prepare all lei as follows:
1. rinse leaves after picking
2. iron or FReeze all leaves before making lei
3. once lei are braided, place in freezer for at least 24 hours before dropping off for shipment to Molokai
Lei should measure approximately 45-inches before tying. If your group would like to donate a large number of lei, please contact us with your pledge. We appreciate your kōkua in this effort to mālama 'āina.
