“We were at my parents’ house having dinner on New Year’s Eve, and we got a call from my nephew across the street saying that our house was on fire,” Noemao said. I did.

The flame immediately swallowed the Bell Street house.

“We went home and the neighbors were there with a water hose. The house was on fire and we were able to enter the house and grab three dogs,” Mao said. ..

At the time of the flame, no one was at home. Fire investigators say the cause of the fire has not been identified.

The Mao family says they are still grateful to each other.

Both Noe and Kalama Mao are known for their generosity and willingness to help others. Now, members of the community are gathering to return the aloha.

The GoFundMe account raised money for the family and also donated a clothing brand on Oahu to help.

“Many people have posted on Instagram that this family is looking for clothes and donations,” said Drew Honda, owner of Sweet Enemy Clothing. “So I contacted them, and fortunately we had a store full of clothes and could share some.”

Sweet Enemy Clothing goes one step further by harnessing the power of social media and music to support Mao’s new journey.

“Facebook and YouTube will be live live from 7pm to 8pm. They will perform at concerts with Karey Mau, Scheit and Sam Tatfi. Hold live-related events and what people can do Is to make a donation, and 100% of the donation will be donated to Mao Ohana, “Honda said.

The Mao family says they are overwhelmed by the continued love and support of the community.

Mao Zedong says he also needs help finding a new pet-friendly home.
