The boutique stores of LeSportsac are a haute couture fixture of Hawaii. On October 26, Mr. James Geiger of Kupono Investment, Inc. and owner of LeSportsac boutiques in Waikiki and Guam came out in support of the Rainbow for Japan Kids (RFJK) program by donating $25,000 towards this project to the Japan-America Society of Hawaii. RFJK brings disaster-affected children of the March 11 disaster in Japan to Hawaii for rest, recuperation, and physical/psychological relief. As it turns out, this is not the first instance of generosity shown by Kupono Investment, Inc. to the RFJK project. In December of last year, LeSportsac donated stylish Weekender bags to the girls who came to Hawaii for this program. 

As to why the company has been so generous, owner Jim Geiger said, “We are a Hawaii-based and Hawaii-staffed company. I’ve been here for over 30 years, we are a fixture of the community, and we want to show support to this great program as people of Hawaii.”
