Wednesday is Keiki Day and you can buy a special edition of Star-Advertiser for $1.

The annual event features a fundraising and proceeds will go to Parents and Children Together(PACT), a family service agency that assists more than 16,000 people annually.

The program includes early childhood education, domestic violence prevention and treatment, child abuse prevention and treatment, mental heath support, youth development and economic and community building.

PACT is encouraging students to submit original stories, poems, essays or artwork for the Keiki Day Creativity Contest.
