On Deck for a Cause Benefits Maui
As Maui continues its recovery from wildfires, guests on all cruises to Hawaii are able assist through Holland America Line’s On Deck for a Cause charitable program. With On Deck for a Cause, guests are invited to donate at least $25 to participate in a noncompetitive 5k fundraising walk around the ship’s promenade deck.
Holland America Line previously partnered with the brands of Carnival Corporation to donate $50,000 to Direct Relief’s Maui efforts to get critical medicines and supplies to the island. Currently, each voyage that visits Hawaii is dedicating On Deck for a Cause walks to Direct Relief’s mission on the island.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority stated in a recent press release that it is encouraging travelers to continue visiting areas of Maui not affected by the wildfires, as well as the other Hawaiian Islands. Hawaii Governor Josh Green said in the release: "When you come, you will support our local economy and help speed the recovery of the people that are suffering right now."
