Donations to Project 541 are now tax deductible. Woo! We can now move forward with everyone's favorite thing... fundraising! I know that fundraising is somewhat of a touchy subject for some. No one really likes to talk about it, but the bottom line is that it is necessary for the success of our mission. We are depending on you to help make this dream a reality. Below are a list of ways that you can help:
-Make a one time donation via Phoenix Community Coffee. 100% of your donation goes to Project 541. The link can be found on our website.
-Buy some coffee from Phoenix Community Coffee. $3.00/lb of your purchase goes to benefit Project 541.
-Uneasy about online giving? Mail us a check. The address can be found on our website.
-Donate your Frequent Flyer Miles. La Moskitia is hard to get to! 4 flights over 2 days gets expensive. Contact us and we will give you the info you need!
-Collect school supplies! School supplies are very expensive in Puerto Lempira, and always a hot commodity. Pencils, spiral notebooks, loose leaf paper, binders, crayons, markers, glue, ect.
-Tell your friends! This might be the most important way you can help us. We are a small ministry just starting out and we need to get the word out. Expand our network. Tell your friends, coworkers, waitresses, and dentists. We want everyone to know the name Project 541!
-Work for a company that has a heart for philanthropy? We would love to meet with them and tell our story. Corporate sponsors are very important to us. Can you get us that meeting?
-Pray! We can never have enough of that!
"There are talents inside us which allow us to excel in different ways than those that surround us. And these talents lie innate in every one of us. And it's only a matter of discovering their location, unearthing it, and holding it up to the light of the world announcing to it, "This is me. This is what I can do. What I can do." How one does this I believe comes down to my belief in 3 things. 1) We are inherently noble. 2) The universe believes in us. We cannot fall, simply land. and 3) We must not fear decision. When we take this fearlessness and apply it to that inherent nobility a courage awakens in us that enables us to move through risk, to take risks in order to more fully embrace our happiness, and more fully realize the people that we are."
Project 541 was established by Kayla Austin in 2013 as an organization geared toward empowering girls and women in La Moskitia, Honduras.
