As a passionate educator and environmentalist, Laura has created a legacy of care through both words and actions. Laura's friends, family, and supporters continue to share inspiring testimony about her positive influence on their lives. As many have attested, Laura's sustained commitment to appreciating and protecting our environment is especially powerful.
In honor of Laura, please consider joining the Laura's Legacy group at Kanu Hawaii. Kanu Hawaii is a nonprofit grassroots organization with a mission to "pursue a vision of a better Hawaii" through "island-style activism," in which participants practice Gandhi's call to "be the change we wish to see in the world." An embodiment of Laura's values, "Kanu Hawaii is a movement of people drawing on island strengths to make Hawaii a model of environmental sustainability, economic resilience and compassionate community." With the click of a mouse, you can join others in making commitments to tangible actions that will have a measurable positive impact on Hawaii and the rest of the planet. For example, 2281 people to date have committed to "using a reusable water bottle and not buying bottled water." Such efforts can keep Laura's legacy present in our daily lives and help to spread it far and wide by raising consciousness and putting Laura's ideals into action. If all of Laura's fans made just a commitment or two in her honor, our impact would be significant.
In the meantime, the investigation into Laura's disappearance continues. If you live on Maui, please consider posting and/or distributing the latest Laura Vogel MISSING poster in local shops, libraries, parks, and other public places.
