WaikapÅ«, HI- Jenny Coon and Nicki Barsamian of WaikapÅ«, Maui have collaborated with Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice to launch their second children's book, "Huli the Hawaiian Chicken: Searches for Snow." On Saturday, April 10th, there will be a book signing event at the Kihei Ululani's shop from 12:00pm-4:00pm. A percentage of each sale will go directly to support IMUA Family Services, a local nonprofit focusing on providing resources and educational opportunities to Maui's most vulnerable population of children. Mark your calendars and bring your 'ohana to enjoy a new book and some delicious shave ice in support of your local community.
Coon and Barsamian established the WaikapÅ« Publishing Company with the launch of their first book, "Huli the Hawaiian Chicken: Dances on the Moon" in December 2020. The book was embraced by many and the question quickly arose, "Whatâ€™s Huli going to do next?"
Once the two decided on the next adventure, they approached David & Ululani Yamashiro, co-owners and co-founders of Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice, and asked if they would be interested in having their company and product featured in Huli's next book: "Huli the Hawaiian Chicken: Searches for Snow." David & Ulu loved the project and agreed to be a part of the colorful childrenâ€™s book!
"In addition to featuring a local business, we decided to also support a local non-profit that provides for families" state Coon and Barsamian. Therefore 3% of every book sale will be donated to IMUA Family Services, who have been serving Maui keiki and their families for more than 60 years. After connecting with Jeeyun Lee, the Managing Director of People, and Dean Wong, Executive Director, the decision was made. IMUA was the perfect fit.
Books can be purchased at all Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice shops and online at http://waikapupublishing.com/
