Boxabl’s Maui “Go Fund Me” Efforts Falling Short

The effort to send 250 Boxabl tiny houses to help shelter those who lost their homes in the devastating wildfire in Maui appears to be falling short of its goal.

As of September 8, 2023, 15 days after the GoFundMe page started, only $57,330 of the $10,000,000 has been contributed. Of that, $50,000 was donated by Piolo Tiramani, one of Boxabl’s founders.

Without his donation, it means that the remaining 65 donations contributed only $7,330 for an average donation of $112, even though the company has a huge marketing and promotional effort for money for Maui.

Galiano Tiramani, also a co-founder of Boxabl, candidly expressed his sentiments on Twitter, saying, “We’ve made numerous attempts to connect with FEMA without success. We can’t afford to wait. We’re taking matters into our own hands.”

Unfortunately for Boxabl, it looks like they aren’t able to connect with contributors either.
