Book Launch!!!

We're happy to report that, because of your support, we are launching our new book - Elias, Rocking Horse & Sol - this October 25 (Tuesday) at 6pm at the Looking for Juan Art Space in Serendra.

And we will be donating not just 3,000 copies but at least 5,000 copies. 

More good news - with the donations we received to date, we were able to attract MasterCard into supporting the project, and enabling us to also publish 10,000 copies of a new coloring book, all of which will also be donated together with the Anthology.  So that's a total of 15,000 books that will soon be in the hands of children all over the Philippines - and just in time for Christmas too!

None of these would have been possible without your support, and we are sincerely very grateful.

We still have some costs to cover though (mainly logistics relating to the distribution of the books), so please continue to support and tell your friends about this project.  We will continue to keep you updated as we begin to actually get the books into the hands of the children, and will send you photos as well.

Again, thank you for everything.

Best regards,
