Support those affected by Hawaii wildfires

On August 8, wildfires broke out on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Flames were fueled by Hurricane Dora, which despite being offshore, still brought hurricane force winds to Maui and the Big Island. The fire destroyed nearly the entire town of Lahaina, taking thousands of structures and nearly one hundred lives.
