For those who wish to participate in this magical holiday cheer, we ask that you fully accept the SECRET SANTA PHILOSOPHY. That goes for all types of support and sponsorship. Please click the button just above for our program guidelines. We love our children and respect their privacy and their wonderful belief in the magic of Santa.


Fill a Stocking

Stocking fillers are vital to the over all success of our mission and goals for the long winter break. Many keiki will go days without a meal and teens will go without basic life needs.

Also included in the stockings are games and educational activities that engage the brains of the kids while they are out of school .

Healthy Snacks and Meal cards are also included. If you would like to sponsor a fundraiser or collection for meal cards please connect with us.

Your $15. provides a child a stocking from Santa

If your group or club would like to coordinate a fundraiser for this program, we can customize your flier/poster and provide sponsorship stocking tags. In addition, we provide an e-letter that is perfect to add to your child's or others stocking to thank them for helping to fill a stocking

Donations to Project Hawai'i provide a hot nutritious holiday meal for homeless keiki and their families. A warm holiday meal for the family raises self-esteem and helps keep the family healthy.


We now provide meal cards that are far more useful to the families than the previous food boxes and far more helpful to the program's overall success. 

A family of 4 can be sponsored for $35.00

and a larger family for $65.00. 


Hygiene bags are provided as well which go a long way towards keeping the children clean and healthy.

Your donation of $12. 

truly makes a difference over their long holiday break! 

   Meals & Hygiene



Our biggest event of the year, Project Hawai‘i's signature Christmas celebration, invites 350 homeless children to come and enjoy what this holiday is all about for children everywhere.

This party is designed to raise the self- esteem and self-worth of homeless children and to help them enjoy the holiday season. 

Project Hawai'i provides each child a hot meal, hygiene bag, a stocking full of Christmas cheer, and a gift they have specifically asked for in their wish. 


Our homeless keiki get to participate in several activities designed to build basic life, educational, and social skills. These include arts and crafts projects, playing educational games, and of course a visit from Santa Claus and his elves!



Project Hawai'i will be providing approx. 1,500 homeless children with their holiday cheer. 

Please help us fill Santa's Sleigh with your donation today. 


It can be a challenge to find sponsors for the "less fun" items the children so desperately need, or for our teens. That is why we ask that each supporter sponsor a child's full needs rather than just the Christmas gift. The homeless children tell us they wishes for life's necessities such as socks, shoes, and clothes just as much as their wish for a special and meaningful toy.

Help Project Hawai'i provide the full support each homeless keiki needs this Christmas season.

More Ways to Sponsor a Homeless Child living in Poverty on our Islands

Companies can become a drop off location or place a Kokua Can at their place of business. 

  1. Being a company Drop Off Location would be placing a decorated box at your location and allowing our donors to drop off their items and coordinate with us for collection of donations.

  2. Kokua Cans are a WONDERFUL way to allow your customers to make a donation (even spare change). These can add additional funds to assure all the children are sponsored. (this can also add a tax deduction for you)

Benefits of hosting this option is added exposure and listing of your location on our website, emails and social media more often.

Kokua Can Poster

If your company was thinking of including us as your party recipient or hosting a drive for us, please contact us for those details. We provide several options that are beneficial to our over all goal.

We do not accept random TOY DRIVE options. That does not meet our needs of providing for the children. In fact that hurts our over all goals and we know that is not your goal. Please feel free to  fill out the partnership questionnaire above to get started.
