Project 7 – Hawaii

Ask yourself this question: Do you believe that it is important that “everyone around the globe has access to fundamental human needs for a healthy life”? If so, Project 7 has your answer on how you can fulfill their mission.

Project 7 develops “products for good,” that give back to seven areas of the world : Feed the Hungry, Heal the Sick, Hope for Peace, House the Homeless, Quench the Thirsty, Teach them Well, and Save the Earth.

Tyler Merrick, founder of Project 7, understands that everyone has their own commitments to work, school, and family, which is why he created Project 7. Project 7 allows individuals to make, “little purchases that make a big impact” to help provide good for the world Merrick said.

“We bring the causes to you,” Merrick said. “You can change the world, simply by what you buy.”

You can participate in providing good for the world by purchasing any Project 7 product at any of the ten participating 76 Hawaii stations listed below. Project 7 products range from water, gum and mints, to coffee. And when you use your Kama`aina Rewards card with your purchase, you’ll receive points on your purchases that you can use for future purchases at participating merchants.

Summer Driving Tips


It is now officially summer! Even though we may not experience four different seasons as severely as other places in the world, the Hawaii summer season still brings the hottest and driest days of the year.

Because cars in Hawaii are exposed to extreme heats more than others, especially in the summer, it is extremely important to make sure that your car, truck, or SUV is in good condition.

Here are a few tips on how you can prevent any situations caused by the summer season while driving:

  • Make sure you have your battery checked if it is more than 3 years old. Extreme heat is more detrimental to a car battery than the cold.
  • Also have your car’s hoses, belts, and tires carefully inspected. Parts made of rubber material are more prone to failure with extreme heat.
  • Be sure that your car’s cooling system is filled to the appropriate manufactory recommended level of the right mixture.
  • Lastly, make sure not that no person or pet is left in a parked car exposed to the heat.

Enjoy the summer season and remember that prevention is the best solution when it comes to preparing for summer driving!

A Better Commute

Is this how you drive?

It should be no surprise that traffic in Hawaii is very bad. USA Today ranked Honolulu the second worst city with traffic in May, with Los Angeles being the worst. According to USA Today, Honolulu has the fifth highest population density with 1586.7 people per square mile.

With commuters spending an average of 27 minutes in traffic, there are many external factors that can contribute to a more stressful and hectic drive, to or from work.

Kama`aiana Rewards Program helps you become a more pleasant driver by giving you credit for future purchases for things you already bought. But in case you need a little more help there’s an app for that.

76 Gasoline has created ways to make your commute a little more enjoyable. Whether it is to give you peace at mind while on the road, help you become a more pleasant driver, or keep your children occupied, 76 has the solution for you.

Discover Wealth in Health


Gas station convenience stores are home to some of the best snacks when you have the munchies or just looking for a quick snack while you’re on the road. But in case you’re trying to steer away from the fatty, sweet and salty, there are healthier options that you can find in any gas station convenience store.

Kama`aiana Rewards program helps you get points for things you buy at participating Hawaii merchants, even the more nutritious choices.

According to Live Better America, here are some healthier alternatives to the typical chips, candy bar, and soda:

1. Seeds – Most gas stations sell sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, also known aspepitas, which make for a high-fiber, nutritious snack when portions are kept in proportion.
2. Nuts – Think like a squirrel and look for cans of peanuts, walnuts, almonds, cashews or macadamias to nibble on. If possible, choose a low-sodium variety in a small handful.
3. Cereal – Single serving boxes of whole grain cereals make a great crunchy snack. Or, add some…
4. Dairy – Look around the dairy section for cartons of milk, cheese sticks, low fat cottage cheese, or single serving containers of yogurt.
5. Fruit – Some gas stations may carry a limited variety of fresh fruit, such as apples or bananas. If not, dried apricots, raisins, dried cranberries and prunes (dried plums) are all a good snack option.
6. Jerky – While you wouldn’t want to eat it every day due to its high sodium content, beef/turkey/venison jerky is a relatively lower-calorie, higher-protein snack option.
7. Milk – Half-pint cartons of low fat milk are a good way to quench your thirst and increase your calcium and vitamin D intake.
8. Juice – Look for 100 percent fruit juice for a tasty and vitamin-C rich way to hydrate.
9. Water – Need we say more? Drink as much water as you wish!
