Pactimo works with Maui artist on apparel to benefit wildfire victims

Published August 22, 2023

DENVER (BRAIN) –  Pactimo is working with Maui artist Welzie to create a Love Maui Love Collection of jerseys and running shirts, with sales proceeds dedicated to supporting those devastated by the recent Maui fires.

"The destruction and loss of life is truly heart-wrenching," said Jason Williams, Pactimo's CEO. "Our friends at the Maui Sunriders Bike Shop lost everything. One of their staff barely escaped the flames on an e-bike. As soon as I started hearing stories like that, I knew we had to do something. After all, it's in the Pactimo's DNA to help people in need."

Pactimo reached out to Welzie to partner on a design. When describing the design for the collection, Welzie said, “It’s a whole bunch of sharks, different colors, all coming together to create one piece of art that’s happy. That’s like Lahaina, a little melting pot. That community is together, especially now, as we all work on getting our smiles back.

“For me,” Welzie said, “Love Maui Love represents the love sandwich we are getting from all over the world right now. It’s coming from all directions.”

Pactimo lowered the price of the garments in the collection to encourage purchases and will donate $60 from the sale of each jersey and $20 for every tee sold. Donated proceeds will be distributed equally to the Hawai'i Community Foundation's Maui Strong Fund, which is dedicated to provide food, shelter and financial assistance to those affected by the fire, and to two local bike shops destroyed in the fire: the Maui Sunriders Bike Shop and East Maui Cycles.
