Awards for community leaders

Hawaiʻi Children’s Action Network will honor exemplary community leaders who have made a difference for Hawaiʻi’s children and families.

Exclusive shopping day

Select stores at Ala Moana Center will offer exclusive discounts to event attendees and donate a portion of the proceeds to HCAN.

Win unique experiences

Event attendees will have the chance to win unique experiences for the whole family, from private surf lessons to high-end dining.

All proceeds will go directly toward transforming the lives of Hawaiʻi’s children through HCAN’s research, advocacy, and leadership development.

48% of Hawaiʻi families struggle to afford basic needs. Overall, Hawaiʻi ranks only 24th in the nation for children’s well-being. Recent research like the Aloha United Way ALICE® Report has shone a new light on the problem.

  • Less than half of our keiki go to preschool.
  • Among 4th graders, only 33% are reading at grade level.
  • Our keiki have the highest rate of tooth decay in the US.

With your support, our children and grandchildren can have a brighter future. Founded in 1997, Hawaiʻi Children’s Action Network works to ensure all children are safe, healthy, and ready to learn. We are exclusively dedicated to advocating for children through:

  • Impactful research about children’s well-being.
  • Collaborative coalitions that advocate for change.
  • Empowering parents to be community leaders.
