Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association’s Aloha Later initiative includes national and local celebrities spreading the message that visitors should stay home now, and travel here when the COVID-19 threat has diminished. Visitors can still help meanwhile by making a donation to help hospitality workers.

A benefit show aired on KHON2 last Saturday, and you’ll get another chance to see it live on television in a hana hou broadcast on KHII this Saturday, May 2nd at 7 p.m. Beyond the one-hour show, celebrities continue to send their messages of support.

Listen here to a message and song from Jasmine Trias, an early American Idol finalist who went on to a career as an international entertainer.

You can donate at www.alohalater.org, and help spread the word to friends and family who are not here in Hawaii.
