Why I am thankful for you this Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you for all the many ways you helped so many people throughout Hawaii and the nation this year.
Your support of the Grassroot Institute helped hurricane victims in the Gulf Coast who needed supplies. You helped us spark a nationwide call for President Donald Trump to lift the Jones Act — which he did!
You helped Hawaii citizens initiate transparency for Honolulu’s vastly overbudget and behind-schedule rail project by urging that it be subjected to a full forensic audit.
And you helped thousands of island residents who saw a new privately run local hospital on Maui become a reality, instead relying on the island’s teetering government-run hospital.
We are grateful for your partnership in striving for a Hawaii that leads the world in individual liberty and economic opportunity.
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!
