“ Small gifts are very important. If everyone waited to give until they could send lots of money, we wouldn't survive!”
Project Mexico Alumna
A drive is underway to find 500 Project Mexico Work Trip Alumni who will commit
to give $20 or more per month for the next 24 months. (Don’t worry – if you’re not

Can you believe that by simply giving

If you’re a Work Trip Alumnus, you’re part of our family in a very special way.
You know from experience how important our work is! While you were here, you hung
out with the boys (or got beaten in a soccer game!), prayed and received the Eucharist
together, and made a huge difference in the life of a Mexican family or at the orphanage
itself. Some of you came searching for answers and many of you renewed your faith
or took that next step in your walk with the Lord. Nearly all of you went away feeling
that you had received more than you gave.
Because you’re part of the family, we’re asking you to help in a very specific manner.
The economic recession has severely challenged us all; Project Mexico is no exception,
despite serious cost-cutting measures which we put into place several years ago
in anticipation of this downturn. We need your help
to get through this economic crisis so that we can continue to minister to the poor
and orphaned, and provide more people with the same life changing experience you
had on your trip! Now is the time to step up. All you have to
do is say “iCan Give!”
The "20.4.24 Campaign" is proof that the quote at
the top of the page is true - small gifts really matter!
This campaign will provide the resources we need to help us weather the financial
storm that’s expected to last another two years. We’re asking
you to get involved and join this core group of 500 Alumni.
What small luxury item could you forego to be one of “The 500”?
- One fancy coffee drink per week?
- One lunch out per week?
- Two movie tickets per month?
It’s really that simple! Sign up now by clicking here or on the "Click Here to Join Us"
Although we’re asking you to participate in this campaign simply for the greater
good of the St. Innocent Orphanage boys and needy Mexican families, there are some
pretty cool benefits in it for you, too! We’ve created a Facebook group for the "iCan Give
20.4.24!" Campaign where you'll be able to do all kinds of great
- Connect with old friends – and even make new ones!
- Share your favorite photos from your trip!
- Find long lost team members!
- Share your thoughts and read other people’s answers to questions like:
– Why I’m participating in the campaign
– My most awesome memory from my trip to Project Mexico
– What my trip to Project Mexico meant and how it changed my life
– My favorite story or funniest moment from my trip
And at the same time, you’ll be able to watch the
gauges rise as your donations begin to make a difference. You’ll be amazed
to see how much "The 500" can do by giving 20.4.24!!
