    Phone Camera Photo Exhibit 

    Pardon my excitement, but I’m very stoked to be making this post.

    The Koa Gallery at Kapiolani Community College presents the Phone Camera Photo Exhibit at the Lama Library.  This show features original photography, taken EXCLUSIVELY with camera phones. So, take some of Hawaii’s best photographers and have them post up their best photos from their iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Nokia, Motorola, or Samsung phone and see the results.

    I’m also very excited because I was personally invited to participate in this show and I do have a couple pieces up.

    The exhibit will run from June 21st until August 13th at the Lama Library on the campus of Kapiolani Community College.  The Library’s Summer hours are Monday-Friday 8am-6pm; closed on Saturdays, Sundays, and State and Federal Holidays.

    The opening reception is TODAY at 4pm in front of the Library.

    Give It Fresh Today 

    Some of you may have seen LOFA’s post about this new organization helping out the community at large at the KCC Farmer’s Market on Saturday.  The organization is called “Give It Fresh Today” and it seeks to help feed Hawaii’s homeless community through the fresh fruits and vegetables available in through locally grown outlets.

    The premise is simple: most food donation and help the homeless organizations hold food drives and call for mostly packaged and canned goods.  Give It Fresh Today takes the helping hand a step further and not only helps the homeless and less fortunate, but also provides them with fresh food that will help contribute to their health and wellness.  This helps out not only the less fortunate, but also the local agriculture scene.  The fresh produce is provided by local farmers, keeping local food in local hands, keeping local money from leaving the island.  The more money stays in state, the better our economy gets, the better off everyone will be in the long run. It takes the idea of “keeping it local” to another level.

    This worthwhile charity sets up their tent every Saturday at the Kapiolani Community College Farmer’s Market from 730am-11am. So, please stop by and make a donation. Tell them atypicalLIVING sent you.

    For more information or to volunteer at the tent, email giveitfreshtoday@gmail.com

      I just wanted to clarify that we accept donations from the public-at-large, the shoppers at the farmer’s market and folks who want to make donations from trees and plants they have at home. The farmers do their part by raising the food, and some have chosen to make donations. Farms that have donated include Aloun Farms, Nalo Farms, and Ma’o Organic Farms. =)
