In 2003, the Messenger Institute was established for the sole purpose of completing and publishing The Project.  The biggest expense so far has been commissioning artist Mariagrazia Orlandini.  Other expenses have included materials, equipment, legal consultation and marketing.  Central Florida hurricanes caused a significant setback, but the dream continues to persevere.

If you would like to donate in honor of or in memory of a loved one, checks can be made to “The Messenger Institute,” or you can click below to donate.  If you use the on-line account, when you get to the Paypal site, click on “Special Instructions,” and put in the name of the person to be recognized; if no name is given, the site will simply list anonymous.  

When the Project is finally in the hands of the children everywhere, these names will be included in the final publication.
