This blog post comes with a heavy heart. Earlier this year, we tragically lost one of our blue line family members. Her name was Tiffany Enriquez. A mother, a friend, an officer, a fitness addict and a child of God. Our friends from the police department wanted to do something special in memory of Tiffany and this is it. The design and logo was envisioned with much thought and care in bringing it to life.
In memory of Tiffany, here are some words from her friends: "Tiffany was smart, athletic, loving, and family oriented. God was always first in her life. She loved her children, loved fitness and loved being an officer. We love her and we miss her everyday." ~Mel
Each face mask was made with both love and care. From being printed and packaged individually, we take pride in this piece of remembrance and will cherish the opportunity to keep Tiffany's spirit alive. Thank you to Mel and JD for your help and input. Thank you especially to the Enriquez family for the permission and trust in us to make these masks. #RILTIFFANYVICTORIA011920
We have some exciting news for you all! We have officially teamed up with Aloha United Way as a donor and partner to serve Hawaii's nonprofits and people in need. Portions of all our profits from Aloha Strong branded products, including t-shirts, face masks, hats, and other merchandise will go directly toward the Aloha United Way organization.
Who is Aloha United Way you might ask? They are one of Hawaii's top nonprofit organizations that help Hawaii in addressing food insecurities, housing and shelter needs, rent/utility access medical needs, childcare and eldercare as well as disaster/crisis response. During these unprecedented times, Aloha United Way is "actively working to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our community as Hawaii confronts COVID-19. Along with the severe public health crisis, our community is facing an extreme economic crisis that has no clear end in sight. The most vulnerable members of our community, many of whom already face health and economic challenges, will be disproportionately affected by the global pandemic."
100% of our donations will help Hawaii families in need, thus immediately benefitting our local community. If you would, like to learn more, please visit www.auw.org

Now, what is Aloha Strong? Our definition is this. It is a blend between culture and compassion. You give Aloha, you receive Aloha. It symbolizes a mirror, that rewards you of your actions and righteousness. Aloha, empathy, and compassion are the takeaways from our phrase, Aloha Strong: Give it, Receive it. Aloha Strong is the reminder to stay compassionate and to give love, where love is needed.
