The Rainbow Stop Campaign
As a business man and resident in Kapolei, Hawaii, I met Senator Gabbard to present my idea to increase the enjoyment of the beauty of our Rainbows and give the State of Hawaii Tourism Authority a low-cost, year-round marketing campaign to promote travel to Hawaii.
After the initial design, planning approval and implementation stage, the "Rainbow Stops" will provide a way for residents and tourists to share the beauty of the Hawaiian Rainbow Phenomenon. Designated signs for Rainbow Stops will allow safe viewing of Rainbows. Many Rainbow photos will be posted on the HTA website with images of Hawaii shared all over the world-wide-web.
A signature petition has commenced, in person and online. This popular idea is a win-win for the State as residents are proud to share their love of 'aina with tourists, and they believe the low-cost marketing of rainbow-viewing areas will be a productive source of new reveneue for Hawaii.
Residents and visitors will participate by sharing their Rainbow pictures and stories--many will go viral. Millions will be encouraged to visit our islands to see our Rainbows in person! So, let's share our Aloha!
