Hawaii Wildfires Tribute

Wildfires on Hawaii’s Maui island and Big Island have killed at least 106 people, forced thousands of residents and tourists to evacuate, and devastated the historic resort city of Lahaina.

The blaze which devastated the town of Lahaina is one of the deadliest US in over 100 years, according to research from the National Fire Protection Association.

Authorities have warned that the effort to search for and identify victims is still in its early stages. Dogs trained to detect human remains, called cadaver dogs, have been called in to help identify victims in the wreckage of buildings.

I cannot change the world and make everything disappear, however i can show support. So in my own time with a few other community members, We decided to fly around Hawaii and make a heart.

I’d like to thank @Harold_Lantos for setting up this event plus other members that joined us for our tribute for those who lost their lives during these terrible times. If it is in your heart, please pray for all those who are suffering and cannot leave Hawaii during these crazy times.

Another Member contributing and there route.

If you’re interested in making your own heart of Hawaii. Please message me for more information

Beautiful tribute. I hope this search sees more light, and I wish it and everyone involved good luck.
Side note: I was flying into Honolulu the other day and I saw a bunch of c130s circling the island, that explains it lol

I saw someone making the heart pattern around Maui when I was flying into OGG from SFO a couple days ago. It was a really nice tribute to see live.
