Take Over a Busy Street Corner to Promote Generosity

In 2018, GivingTuesdayHawaii leaders partnered with the Bank of Hawaii + First Hawaiian Bank to “takeover” two corners of the busiest streets in downtown Honolulu. They created a fun, lively atmosphere so people would get curious and gather to learn more about the work that nonprofits do across the islands. Partners included a well-known local chef who provided free food; a contemporary dance organization; and more. The bank partners and the Foundation pulled funds together so that attendees would have the opportunity to give $500 to their favorite charity by putting their business cards in a jar. Their local TV anchor pulled names and announced it live on the news throughout the day. In total, $15,000 was awarded to charities in Hawai‘i.
