Aloha for Japan | Hana Hou! Magazine

After photographing fundraiser events throughout Honolulu for Japanese Tsunami and Earthquake Disaster Relief, such as Kokua for Japan, Lei Day for Japan, Aloha for Tsunami Victims, and A Prayer for Japan, Matt and I were thrilled to see the final 12 page spread that ran in Hana Hou! Magazine.

Kokua for Japan | Hana Hou! Magazine

Legendary and local musicians came together to play for the Kokua for Japan Benefit Concert at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in April for the Japanese Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Disaster Relief. Thousands of people gathered for the fundraiser where over a million dollars was raised for the people of Japan. Matt and I enjoyed listening to the stellar lineup of rockers as we photographed the event for Hana Hou! The Hawaiian Airlines Magazine's Japanese Issue.
