*Consumer Comment: Hawaii Athletes In Action - Honest, Upstanding & Awesome Organization!
Many of us agreed as the boys would be supervised. We gladly passed over our $800 deposit after saving it up for 3 months. Then we were told the cost would be $2000 - some parents were told $2500. I asked for a refund and was told it had already been spent on reserving the airline tickets and it was non refundable. So me, a single mom with two jobs had to fork over the rest. I had to take it out of my sons college savings.
I think Aunty Lua (Mrs Tuiasosopo) used our (parents) funds to pay for her trip, her husbands trip and the cost of her sons expenses.
I found out later from other parents the house in Utah was donated as was hundreds of dollars worth of food that we were charged for.
Mr. Eastman and Mrs. Tuiasosopo make promises they can not keep. They have promised all our sons that if they make grades they will find them athletic scholarships. After speaking with their high school coaches I have come to the conclusion this is impossible, that only a college coach can make that promise, not these two self centered, self inflated, arrogant people who think only of themselves and pretend to care about others.
I would highly recommend not dealing with this organization, Hawaii Athletes In Action out of Ewa Beach, Hawaii
