After last week’s heartbreaking Maui wildfires, Pactimo reached out to local Maui artist Welzie to partner on a design that would inspire and foster a sense of community with those who were forced to endure a tragic loss of life and property.
When describing the design for the collection, Welzie said, “It’s a whole bunch of sharks, different colors, all coming together to create one piece of art that’s happy. That’s like Lahaina, a little melting pot. That community is together, especially now, as we all work on getting our smiles back.”
Proceeds from the collection – $60 for every jersey, and $20 for every tee, will go to the Hawai’i Community Foundation’s Maui Strong Fund, which is dedicated to providing food, shelter, and financial assistance to those affected by the fire, and to two local bike shops destroyed in the fire; the Maui Sunriders Bike Shop and East Maui Cycles.
