Project Hawai'i, Inc.
October 28, 2014

I have been a volunteer with Magin & Project Hawaii since moving to the Big Isld 10 yrs ago. She is totally devoted to helping these homeless keiki and their families. If it weren't for her and Cliff, I don't know what many of these families would do. They work nonstop to raise funds to provide not only the necessities (food, clothing, hygiene items), but to also give them some joy in their lives; i.e., holiday parties/events, summer camps, etc. It is unfortunate that Magin and Cliff must work so hard to raise the funds needed to accomplish these goals and that many of the local community organizations/business, do not step-up to help them. Project Hawaii should be one of the top non-profits in Hawaii.

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.
