Sunday's child helps raise Hawaiian children that need extra support in their lives. They do this by giving them tools and a vision of the world that will enable them to live productive lives and increase the likeliness that they will be able to fulfill their goals and remain in Hawaii. Sunday's child provides a sanctuary where children can learn about their potential through experience and education that allows them to develop the creative thinking and capabilities they will need to prosper in the world.

Sundays Child Foundation is a godsend to our community. I work with middle School & High School students in Kailua-Kona, and have been involved with this non-profit for approximately 4 years. Thanks to Lauren and the people of Sundays Child Foundation, our children have the opportunity to experience unconditional love at its best! Whether we are taking our kids on a zipline adventure, facilitating 'lifeplan' Mentorship training, or just taking the time to listen to our keiki & love them through difficult times, The Love that Lauren has for these kids and for the community shines through. Thank You Sundays Child!

I had a wondeful, meaningful experience with Sunday's Child Foundation, that day we were on a boat with the kids. They, we all had so much fun! It was valuable for the kids to have this special experience, bond with adults, other kids in similar situation whilst connecting with Nature. Lauren is just lovely - dedicated and passionate. Mahalo!

Sunday's Child has been a wonderful support for our family and especially our now 11 year old daughter who came to us through the foster system three years ago. For her, having the opportunity to do activities with other children she's known through the foster system and her very disconnected past of multiple homes, has made a huge difference. She refers to these kids as "my people" because for so many years, those kids without forever families were the only people she could count on seeing again. They have a strong sense of kinship and caring for one another. The joy on their faces when they see each other is so amazing. The fun they have together through Sunday's Child Foundation events has been so healing and comforting for my daughter and has provided chances to do things that, in some cases, we could not have provided for her. I am forever grateful.
