Welcome to the 100 Friends Project!

I am Marc Gold and I started this small project over 26 years ago, in 1989. The idea is really very simple. Every year many people contribute to the project and I take the money to developing countries and look for the neediest people I can find. I then put the money to work in the most compassionate, appropriate, culturally compatible, constructive and practical manner possible. You put the donation into my hands and I put the funds directly into the hands of the needy individual or family, or a small trusted grassroots organization helping them.
