No one has ever become poor by giving. - Anne Frank

Hello friend,

My name is Andrew Maggio, founder, and president of Rosaries & Scapulars Initiative Inc. I really need your help. I started in July, 2019 by giving rosaries & scapulars out to parishioners of my parish, Saint Ann’s Catholic Church in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Not long after my brother-in-law was dying at a VA hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He was unresponsive and in his final days. I asked Chaplain Father Austin if he would tell my brother-in-law that I loved him and was praying for him. Father did and then told me that he had eye movement and heard what I said. But I had wished he died with a scapular. Father Austin told me he had no rosaries nor scapulars even all though he had many, many requests from Catholics and non- Andrew Maggio, founder, and president of Rosaries & Scapulars Initiative Inc. I started in July,2019 by giving rosaries & scapulars out to parishioners of Saint Ann’s Catholic Church in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Logo Catholics alike. I told him I would send some rosaries & scapulars immediately. As soon as he received them he called and said, “I have a chaplain in Boston that needs some too.” And that’s how it began. To date, Rosaries & Scapulars Initiative Inc. has sent out to 150 VA hospitals. And we have also sent packets to many Catholic schools. Some of the bigger schools that received them are Calvert Hall 1,400 packets, Loyola High School 1,000, Notre Dame Prep 1,000. We even have two of parishioners who delivered, in person, 200 packets to Medjugorje. I have met so many nice people when I deliver packets to the schools. I even get many hugs from the principals thanking me, too!

We have sent out over 57,000 packets in the last three years. Each student and veteran receive a rosary, scapular, and pamphlet on how to pray the rosary. It has gotten so big that we formed a 501c3 non-profit organization with EIN-880648975. Up to this point, I personally financed all expenses.

But we need your help. Please pray for our mission and if possible, consider making a donation so that we can reach every student and vet in our country. No gift is too small. Thank you for being a part of our mission.

Our website will be live soon and then we can take donations online. In the meantime, please if you would like to make a donation, please make your check payable to the Rosaries and Scapulars Initiative Inc. and send to 60 Reaping Way, Ocean View DE 19970. Your gift is tax deductible

Thank you,

Andy Maggio
President and Founder
