Project Grace featured on CNN's "Leaders with Heart!"

Inspired by the documentary film Motherland, Project Grace was founded for the purpose of offering persons in grief the opportunity to honor a loved one through service opportunities. On each trip our participants travel together for the dual purpose of honoring a loved one and serving a community in need. This program was named to honor Grace Caldwell Magill, the daughter of Anne Magill, one of the women featured in Motherland.

Since 2008, Project Grace has organized and led nine different service trips for grieving mothers, fathers and family members. We have danced with orphaned children in Tanzania, we have helped distribute food and clothing to the families living at the Puerto Vallarta dump in Mexico, and we have helped in the construction of a school in Nicaragua. Our goal remains unchanged - to help Project Grace participants find strength, hope and a renewed sense of purpose through dedicating their time and hearts to a meaningful endeavor. While immersed in a different culture, our participants soon discover that laughter, friendship, tears and treasured moments are all part of the Project Grace experience. We share stories, offer compassion and support to one another, and work together to provide tangible assistance to a grateful community.
