Clarence Lee Design is working towards local revitalization and social contribution for Hawaii.
Standing together as “1”, we can help Hawaii “111-HAWAII PROJECT”!
Clarence Lee Design is administrating an officially certified project endorsed by Hawaii Tourism Japan,”111-HAWAII PROJECT”. This project is about working together with local businesses to develop stronger branded products and revitalize the community by donating portions of all sales to local non-profit organizations who will help lead the positive ecological growth of our Hawaii.
Improving the Made in Hawaii’s branding to revitalize the community
Being on an island, there are many small-medium businesses in Hawaii with wonderful made in Hawaii products. However, due to lack of acknowledgement or exposure, there products unfortunately stay undiscovered. This is why we aim to revitalizing our local community by bringing various products into “one brand” and improving the value of the made in Hawaii products. It’s quite difficult for one small business to do major things, but with 10 or 20, we become a big single unified force. We want to make this a new movement to show the world how wonderful Hawaii is.
Raising the quality of Hawaii tourism via social contribution
Most of the business in Hawaii is dependent on environmental factors in both direct and indirect ways. How are we getting this many visitors in Hawaii? It is because we have the most beautiful and most unique culture here. I feel that it is our duty for those who have business in Hawaii to protect this. So we made a system where portion of all sales are donated to non-profit organizations when our products are purchased. Visitors and residents will become happy, while local businesses and also local community improves. We are aiming for this win-win-win situation such as this.
