Homeless in Paradise

Diana Kim is working on a book about the homeless in Hawaii. Shedding light on their stories which will help more people understand the myriad of reasons behind homelessness, especially in the islands.

Her Kickstarter campaign not only will fund her book but also fund waterproof USB bracelets for the homeless. One of the biggest dilemmas facing homeless in Hawaii and elsewhere, is the loss of personal belongings including identification which is a major barrier to receiving help. The USB bracelets would contain all of that information and be easier to keep track of.
