When I was a teenager, my mother would collect money from women at the parish and send it to a Jesuit in India -- that was my inspiration. By supporting the work of CJI, I get to continue my mother's legacy and meet some of the Jesuits at their events. This has given me further inspiration and pleasure.


I support CJI and their partners because I trust them to use my donations wisely.
