The 52 Million Project was created by Ohio State University graduate, Imran Nuri. The mission is to make a difference by having individuals donate a dollar per week. This idea stems from when Imran was growing up. His parents would give him a dollar to put into an empty JIF peanut butter jar, and it would be donated to a charity. With this in mind, Imran wanted to create a larger network of individuals donating one dollar per week.
