Aloha We are Clinton & Kacie Aurio, the co-owners of Faith Hope Aloha. Our companies vision is to Live full, extraordinary lives in Jesus Christ. We are on a mission to share Faith, Hope, Aloha everywhere we Go and to everyone we meet. Our Heart is for Hawaii and for our World.
Many have asked us, “How did you come up with your company name? How did it happen?” We laugh and remember it was a few years ago when we discovered it. Both of us were having the worst day, arguing and complaining over everything. So then Clinton says, “Okay, if we can’t agree on anything, lets look at what God says to do in the Bible.” He opened up to the "Love book" in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13. He began reading it out loud, “Love is patient, Love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not rude, it is not proud, it is not self-seeking…Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth…these three things remain: Faith, Hope, Love, but the greatest of these is Love. He spoke out saying, “Here in Hawaii, it is Faith, Hope, Aloha!” We both came in agreed that that would be our company name! This is where it all begins.
We remember, it all started with A small dream. We loved wearing other local brands as well as surf brands but still had an empty feeling in my soul. I wanted to wear clothing that I believed in and valued most. Personally, since I believe that God knows the best plans that He has for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, to give us a hope and a future. These encouraging truths led me to seek Him. From His leading and from His Words (The Bible) is where I would gain my sayings, inspirations, colors and pictures. Then the time came for us to celebrate my birthday and valentines day (LOL to all couples:). Clinton would ask me, “Hey what do you want for your birthday? for valentines day?” Thats just the way we roll, so I would tell him, “I just want to make my own shirt…I just want to make my own trucker hat!”
Our very 1st Faith Hope Aloha item was our “Hottie Pink Camo Trucker Hat.” Stepping out in Faith, gaining Hope and living the Aloha Spirit is the very essence of our journey. Our first trucker hat became a hit overnight as I got calls, texts and emails for orders. We would continue to create more apparel items such as tank tops, racerbacks, t-shirts, tote bags and bumper stickers. As I glance back in July 2013, we have started with one small dream and it grows with each inspiration and project. We value our relationship with God and we value our relationships with People. Our clothing reflects our lifestyle and our hearts desire to be a positive force wherever we Go and with each person that we meet!
