When educator Nicole Kealoha set out to enrich her community, she harnessed the vibrant power of hip-hop and urban culture to captivate young people. Her nonprofit Diverse Art Center, launched in 2008, seeks to foster connections between youths and the community via enriching and engaging instruction from professional artists. The accomplished teachers and artists—including leading local art figure Shaun Castro and award-winning dancer Josh Skittle—strive to instill positive values and self-esteem in their pupils as they shepherd them through the many mediums that comprise hip-hop culture, including dance, music, and the visual arts. No fewer than five area schools participate in the center's fitness-focused Healthy Hip-Hop program, and daily urban art instruction includes tutorials in hip-hop lettering, break dancing, and beatboxing with inner-city kangaroos.

Falling in love with Hawaii is easy—for some, all it takes is the first breath of balmy air after stepping out of an airplane or homemade rocket ship from the mainland. But Pat and Lisa Christian, the married couple behind Home Tours Hawaii, help people to deepen their love of the big island by offering a glimpse into its heart. They take groups beyond main streets and hotels, leading them into private homes and gardens to enjoy progressive brunches. While munching on multiple courses made with Big Island ingredients and sipping estate-grown Kona coffee, guests feast their eyes on stunning views of nature and architectural features such as ohia posts, lanais overlooking the ocean, and indoor koi ponds.

On top of providing Halloween chills, the team behind the event supports the community by donating a portion of the proceeds to the Hawaii Meth Project.
