Q: What can I pray for?
A: Your prayer can be about anything at all. Pray for yourself, a friend, a family member, or a complete stranger. It can be anything from "Please help my sister get out of the hospital soon" to "I pray that I will make better grades this semester". No prayer is too small or unimportant. If it matters to you, it matters to me.
Q: I'm not religious, but this seems cool. Can I still send you something?
A: Of course. This project is not intended to be about a particular religion, so if you're not the religious type, no worries. We've got enough things in this life that divide us. My hope is that Project Prayer Box will transcend political and religious issues and bring various people, faiths, and causes together in a unique way. Have an issue with the word "prayer"? That's fine, too. You can call it a "wish" or a "worry" if you'd like. The point of this is to provide you with courage and hope, so as long as it's doing that, you can call it anything you want.
Q: Does it cost anything to send a prayer?
A: Nope. Project Prayer Box is absolutely, completely free. However, if this project inspires you and you'd like to donate toward helping it continue, consider making a small donation here. :)
Q: Sooo...is this a charity? Can I write off my donation?
A: Yes! Project Prayer Box is now a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, so your donations can be written off.
Q: Wait, who are you again?
A: Hi, I'm Paige Lewis. I'm a singer/songwriter from Houston, TX, who now lives (mostly) in Los Angeles. Nice to meet you! I started hiking and hiding prayers in a box for my mom last summer, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now that my mom is cancer-free (!), I've started Project Prayer Box as a continuation of that journey. I couldn't be more excited to be hiking your prayers! I'm not a monk or a nun or anything that might qualify me to "deliver" prayers. I'm just a daughter who came up with an idea to help her mom, and now I want to do the same for others. To me, it's not about being worthy, it's about being willing. And I am definitely that.
Q: I have an idea for you! I want to help!
A: Awesome! Email me and tell me what you're thinking! I'm open to all suggestions or offers to help! Bring it.
Q: Hmm...I still have a question.
A: Sweet. Email me and I'll do my best to answer it!
Q: What is my donation being used for?
A: Although Project Prayer Box is, for the most part, a relatively low cost operation, there are expenses involved that I need help covering in order to continue hiking the prayers. (Remember when I told you that I'm a musician? Yeah, I'm on budget). One hundred percent of the donations received for Project Prayer Box will go back into the funding and continuation of this project. If you'd like more information, feel free to email me and I'll answer any questions you have regarding the use of donations.
