Christmas Story 


Secret Santa Opportunities

Project Hawai'i supports the full SPIRIT and HOPE that Christmas brings to a homeless child. 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 here for our our program guidelines. We love our children and respect their privacy and their wonderful BELIEF in the MAGIC OF SANTA!!! 

Sponsor a Child Guidelines:

1. Fill out the form below with the age and gender of a child you would like to sponsor in the message box. Be sure to include the island you are on as well


2. We will send you a keiki wish list. Typically this will include their most needed item, their wish list item(s) and a new outfit and shoe size. This will typically range between $20-$50. per child PLUS #4.

3. We will also send you the proper drop off donation sites/and deadlines.

4. You will also be responsible to sponsor the cost of their stocking $15. and meal/hygiene box $25.  To make this donation online donate here, or simply bring donation with the child's wish list items. 

It is really difficult to find sponsors for the "not so fun" stuff the children desperately we ask that each family sponsor a child FULLY rather than just purchasing the Santa gift for many children. When talking to the homeless children, they always mention their hopeful wishes for life's necessities such as socks, shoes, and clothes just as much as their wish for a special and meaningful toy. Please FULLY support a homeless keiki this Christmas season.

Your Donation Make the Difference

ONE MORE IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  If you are shopping Amazon... there is a serious risk that the package won't get there on time for Christmas!!! Even with "free Prime" shipping, last year we had 65 children NOT receive their gifts until after Jan. Please do not let this happen to the children again this year. If you cannot sponsor early enough, please do not use delivery services to get your purchase. And... those who do ship from AMAZON, or ??? Please mail all items to PROJECT HAWAI'I, INC. (I will provide you the proper mailing addresses for either island.. .this saves TIME and helps with delays.)

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


Fill a Stocking Program: $15.00* Donation

Our Fill a Stocking Program will provide your sponsored child with a stocking filled with their most needed items for their age group.

For more details, please click here.


Wish to Host a Stocking Drive? Click here for more details


These items 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 go without basic life needs. So we fill their stockings with ....

* Teen Stocking Gift Cards: $10.00 from Walmart or Target

* $5.00 Mc Donald Gift Cards (you can request  a list of other restaurants in your child's area)


Feed A Family: $25. - $65.00

Our Feed a Family program allows you to assure these children will have a hot nutritious holiday meal. A family of 4 can be sponsored for $25.00 and a larger family for $65.00. 

Your donation truly makes a difference over their long holiday break!

We no longer do "food boxes", we provide meal cards that are more useful for the families and far more helpful to the program's overall success. 


WANTED:  Companies who wish to host a Keiki Wish Board, Collection Box or Kokua Can....

 Your company can truly make a difference this holiday by placing a 

                                            Keiki Wish Board in your store, office, or business location.

This allows the community to choose a keiki, purchase the items listed, and then return to your place of business. Purchasing the items from your place of business would help benefit your store as well.

Make it even easier and host a Kokua Can 

at your desk, register, etc., and allow the community to put their donations or spare change to help towards our efforts. 

We will place your company location in our newsletters, emails and do all the local advertisement to let our donors know where to pick up their keiki tag. 

Companies are also listed on our website with links, and for a $50.00 Donation, you can add your name on our holiday event t-shirts worn by volunteers all season long.
