Accepting nominations for the last puka drive of 2017!
Email me if you know someone going through something that could use some puka love and healing from the community.
What is the Puka Project?
The Puka Project is a community project created by Puka Perri to bring our island ohana closer together to support one another.
At Puka Perri, our business and kuleana is crafting one-of-a-kind healing puka necklaces. We want to spread the puka love and healing to those that need it most, but we realized we couldn't do it alone.
So we started The Puka Project, Maui's first ever Puka Drive. This community project gives everyone the opportunity to do something small and simple to create something big and powerful.
Each month The Puka Project will sponsor a Puka Drive for a chosen ohana member that is in need of some extra love and healing. Drop boxes are placed around the island where you can gift a puka shell and send good vibes (small cards are provided if you wish to scribe your good vibe).
With the shells we collect, Puka Perri will string a supercharged puka necklace that will hold healing mana from each person who participates. The necklace symbolizes unity, strength, and love and will remind them of the support that is always with them. What a healing gift from the heart it will be!
To Participate in the Puka Drive...
Find a puka on the beach or pick one from your collection.
Bring it to one of our drop locations during the drive dates.
