Student Artists Receive Mayoral Awards/Returns from Japan's World Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

HONOLULUToyotaHawaii.com – The last week of August this year, Toyota Hawaii flew 13-year-old Teah Laupapa, from Kapolei, and 12-year-old Emma Thain, from Koloa, Kauai, to Japan for an all-expenses paid trip to compete in the World Dream Car Art Contest. The two girls, along with each set of parents, toured the city of Nagoya, visited a Buddhist temple, and painted a lantern. Laupapa recalls, “I liked the fact that I got to bond with my parents through the experience and that we were able to learn so much about the Japanese culture. Both Laupapa and Thain received an award of “Best Finalist” for their respective creations at the World Art Contest in Japan. (All winners’ artwork can be seen “here.”)

Local Hawaii Artist Donates a Portion of Proceeds of iPhone Covers to HUGS

HONOLULU – Heather Brown, a local Hawaii artist, has added local non-profit HUGS (Help, Understanding and Group Support) to her list of non-profits she supports through her iPhone cover sales. Earlier this month Brown launched two new iPhone cases featuring her signature artwork in which she will donate 15 percent of the proceeds to HUGS.  HUGS provides support for the entire family, whose child has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

 

 “I chose HUGS because I believe in their mission statement, have had the pleasure of meeting some of the people that work with HUGS and I love to support great causes at home in Hawai'i,” Brown said about choosing HUGS as one of her non-profit beneficiaries.
