The 40-40 Project

img_3024.jpeg

On January 18, 2016, community and faith based organizations in Atlanta, Georgia will gather for what we hope will be a movement of love, peace, and unity in the beloved community. During the Martin Luther King Day of Service we will launch the Second-Annual 40-40 Project. This community initiative is inspired by Dr. King’s 40 Days of Peace Act. This year, we will successfully complete forty community service projects in forty days. Each community project has been designed to fit the mission of our partners and the causes they support.

This initiative is sponsored by The Global Peace Foundation and led by M.A.D.E, Sankofa United Church of Christ, and many other community organizations. Our mission is to build awareness of great community organizations while simultaneously galvanizing support from dedicated community members. We can’t do this without your help! On January 18th, we are kicking off the 40-40 Project but we can not successfully complete our mission without the support of everyone in our community. We are seeking passionate members of our community who are willing to volunteer in order to make our 2016 Martin Luther King Day of Service a great success! To volunteer to be a crucial part of this year’s 40-40 Project, please register at the bottom of the page.

If you would like to make an additional contribution to The 40-40 Project please donate today!
