Aloha Everyone! Thanks for making our organization so great! Without all our support from our dedicated volunteers we would not be able to provide such great opportunities for our keiki to gain the self-esteem and life skills they need to succeed! Without our donors, well, we'd not be here at all. Your support is life changing for these precious children. Since we rely solely on public donations, your support is THE Difference we need to succeed. Thanks to all for helping us to once again be nominated for another award! Our keiki are the winners with all of YOU supporting them. As the director of Project Hawai'i, Inc., I want to wish all of you and your families a wonderful holiday season. Thank you for keeping us in your hearts and minds through these hectic times. As you all know the keiki rely on US, and we rely on YOU. Mahalo Nui Loa with Aloha from Cliff and Magin!! xoxo

Aloha Cliff & Magin. It is great to be able to write this review for the agency and both of you. Your dedication is truly one of a kind. I enjoy volunteering at the events and helping where I can. Seeing the smiles on the faces of these children is a reward all in itself. I am happy to be part of such a wonderful agency. I invite anyone to see for themselves the difference this program provides for their clients. Going far beyond any expectations is to say the least. After volunteering for events and setting up parties one will really get the feeling of what hard work is. Why on earth anyone would do this over and over again being under supported both financially and volunteer wise...it is beyond me. But I know you two have the dedication and determination to continue your efforts. These children are blessed by having you both in their lives. I respect the work you put in to every event you have, and the efforts you put out to get the community support. I only wish the best for you both and this wonderful program.

I have been both a regular volunteer and donor for Project Hawaii since moving to HI over 8 years ago. Magin has continually done an amazing job of always being there for any child/family in need while simultaneously organizing and offering all her regular yearly events for these children-- Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, summer camp, etc. She manages all of these tasks while working with only donations and volunteers. Project Hawaii is long overdue for major recognition and financial assistance!

I have been with Magin and Christmas Wish since moving to HI five years ago. And I have never experienced someone so dedicated to their "cause" as Magin. As another reviewer noted, she will use her own funds if she does not meet her monetary goals for a particular campaign, i.e., christmas gifts, books, food. I also agree that she seems somewhat dis- organized but amazingly to me (since I am a very organized person) everything falls into place and works! She does so much for these homeless keiki, it is really heartbreaking to see how oftentimes the community does so little to help her cause. Many families would be much worse off it weren't for Magin and Christmas Wish.

Project Hawaii is one of the most Awesome non profits I have ever been associated with. From summer camps to Christmas to celebrating holidays and beyond they are always there. The amount of hours Magin and Cliff put in is absolutely incredible. They are the charity of choice for homeless keiki on the Big Island!! Storm Steiger

I am a mother of 7 homeless children who live in a tent and a car because we always have to move it is hard to stay in one place. Can't seem to find the words that it takes to say how hard it is to live like this with children. I have a lot of troubles and really don't know what I would do without the support Magin and Cliff bring to my family. They never fail us, not even judging us for the way we have to live. Keeping my kids happy is not always easy but they always seem to put a smile on their faces and in their hearts. We have been with this program for years. I know with out this program, my family would really miss out on basic life needs and opportunities. My children got to go to camp, go to the parties and Magin always answers my call of need. I call her for all kinds of stuff and she does the best she can to get me what we need. I want to thank them for being here for us and all the others. I read what others say, and it is true!! This program is life saving. These two people care so much and don't give up. I am one who really knows because we get the stuff they bring. We get the presents, the food, and all the program offers. They are really unique people and do care for everyone who comes to them. I am so happy to know that I have a safety net for all our needs. Someday my life will change, but I know that my children have better hope then me to make good choices and change their future. Thank you Magin, we all LOVE YOU!! You to Uncle

Project Hawaii's dedication to the children in Hawaii is beyond excellent. Their continuing help and support for our children deserves the highest honor possible. They have help so many many children never being discouraged always looking ahead as to ways to help these precious keikis.

On a recent visit to Hawaii I ran accross Magin and her group outside of a store selling candy to make money to help feed the children in Hawaii. I knew of the Christmas Wish Program and have received literature for years, but to actually witness the dedication to what their mission is was inspiring. Magin's hard work and dedication is unbeleivable. The countless children she has fed and sheltered is truly a miracle in the works. We must continue to support such an important and necessary program.

Magin, the founder of Project Hawaii, is one of the most giving, selfless people I have ever met. I have volunteered for 5 or 6 years now during the Christmas season to help the kids have the kind of Xmas all kids deserve. I have helped at the Xmas party for most of those years and if you could see the smiles on the faces of those precious children you would know how much good this organization does.

I have found their work to be grassroots and hands-on. I volunteered at an event years ago and since then have on occassion donated to this worthy cause. I trust my money is put to good use in Megin's hands as she is extremely passionate about her work.
