A Peacemaking Project by Isa H.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Helping victims of domestic and relationship abuse feel a little more at home by providing them essential items of comfort, health, and luxury.

Thanks so much for posting two projects in the community. Are you hoping to run both projects or are you wanting to focus on one in particular as part of the support that we can provide to you? Are you working with a team?
We would love to hear more to be able to identify the best ways to help you.
Thanks for making the world a better place!
Have a great day!

Thank you so much for reaching out! I am hoping to focus more on the Love and Bubbles one. This project focuses on making a care package (full of toiletry essentials such as toothpaste, soap, etc) and then donating it to women's abuse shelters and homeless shelters in the Boston area. I was wondering, what is the support/advisor process like? Is it an online thing, or do I meet with someone? Would it be possible to get an advisor like this?
I am hoping to do this project for school but need to adhere to their guidelines, which includes having an advisor.
Thanks so much,

Thanks a lot for the additional details. Would the advisor need to be face to face in order to qualify as a proper advisor for your school? If we organize for a staff member to be your advisor, we could probably organize some phone or video calls. Would that work for you? Where are you based?

Thank you so much for your help and quick response. Luckily, I was able to find someone in my community that could help me with the project. So, I will no longer be needing help from Peace First.
Thanks so much anyway!

Just checking in about your project and the next steps. I wanted to make sure you are aware of the upcoming Mini-Grant Deadline - there is still time to remain eligible to attend a Peace First Challenge Accelerator if you complete your Compassionate Insight, Project Plan, and Mini-Grant application by March 31st.
We're excited about your work, and would love to be able to support it with a mini-grant of up to $250.
These tools can help you craft your insight, plan, and budget for your mini-grant:
Through your dashboard you can submit your "compassionate insight," record your plan in "Make a plan" and then "Apply for a mini-grant" for the materials you need.
Let me know how I can help!

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.
If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.
If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!
