fortunate because the funds we raise go to the Hawaii Island United Way

We wanted to do something special to kickoff
the HIUW campaign so we came up with the
HIUW Rice Bucket Challenge

The way it works is that someone nominates you to
participate in the challenge. You then have a working day
to either donate $120 to the Aloha United Way, that’s $5 a
paycheck, or dump a bucket of rice on your head.
In West Hawaii, everyone was going to
be together for E Imi Pono Day

We asked for a couple of volunteers at the end of the
day’s activities

Dr. Marty Fletcher, Director UH Center, West Hawaii and
David Tsugawa, English faculty bravely volunteered

We talked them into taking the challenge and dumping
the bucket of rice on their head.

It was great fun!
David Tsugawa, English Faculty took the
challenge…
This was
so much
fun…
Marty Fletcher, Director of the UH Center,
West Hawaii took the challenge…
I cannot
believe I am
doing this …
Where’s the Rice Bucket Now?

Marty took his rice bucket to Hilo the following Monday for the
Admin meeting where he challenged Vice Chancellor Jason Cifra

Jason opted to do the ice bucket challenge and passed the rice
bucket on to Chancellor Yamane

We’re still waiting to hear what she did with the rice bucket

David Tsugawa passed his rice bucket on to West Hawaii Student
Services

Most recently, a rice bucket was seen in the hands of Kate Sims
and the UH Center Library & Learning Center

We also heard Vice Chancellor Joni Onishi has a rice bucket in
her office
