Jewelers and jewelry designers are working to support the businesses affected by the Maui wildfires, including an incredible effort by Maui Divers Jewelry that raised more than $1.3 million for the Hawaii Red Cross.

Maui Divers’ fundraiser is an example of how the spirit of ‘ohana—or family—is key to Hawaiian life and business culture, says Cole Slater, CEO and creative director for the Honolulu-based jewelry company.

The wildfires that swept through Maui earlier this month, destroying thousands of acres of property as well as much of the town of Lahaina, are now considered the deadliest wildfires in the nation’s history, USA Today reported. At least 114 people died in the disaster, and an estimated 850 people are still missing, according to state and local officials.
