Project Protect

What We Do 

“What starts here changes the world.” As students at The University of Texas at Austin, this is a phrase that has become ubiquitous. We see it printed on t-shirts, plastered on buildings, and even written at the end of many of the emails we receive from the university. Yet, as we face this global pandemic, this phrase has become much more than a motto. It has become our battle cry as we fight coronavirus, and the inspiration for Project Protect. 


Project Protect is a fundraising campaign led by students at The University of Texas at Austin. Our mission is simple: to protect those who protect us. Every day, healthcare workers in our city, country, and across the world are on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19. It is unacceptable that these heroes have to fear for their own safety, as well as the safety of their families. This is why Project Protect is raising money for Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization dedicated to equipping facilities in resource-poor areas with medicine and supplies. Direct Relief is currently responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in over 80 counties. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for this life-saving organization.
