VAKA #002 - "SOFA KING HAWAIIAN"
Based on the Saturday Night Live "Sofa King" skit - we added Hawaiian flavor using the royal crown of King Kalākaua as the central design element and using O.G. Hawaiian jewelry style letters. I originally made this shirt for a buddy of mine as a one-off, and then a friend of ours liked it and she wanted one. I figured there must be something to it so I am putting it up as the second VAKA shirt.
The VAKA 100 project is making 100 neo-Hawaii t-shirts and connecting with 100 charitable organizations that promote the VAKA ideals: Love, Dream, Work, Play. A portion of the proceeds of every VAKA 100 T-shirt sold is donated to a highlighted charitable organization to support it's good work building a stronger community. So if it compels you, buy it, wear it, share it and join the VAKA life! Thank you and aloha!
The charity we are donating with a portion of sales of this shirt is PBS Hawaii. PBS Hawaii's mission statement is "We advance learning and discovery through storytelling that profoundly touches lives." I grew up when we only had a handful for channels on TV and PBS was and is a positive force for kids and education. Props to them and props for you for supporting them and the VAKA project.
