Just a quick update, plus some photos.
To date, over 4000 books have already been distributed directly or through partners such as Museo Pambata, the Joey Velasco Foundation, TAO-Pilipinas Foundation, Sarilaya, BenCab Art Foundation, and Onesimo Foundation. The rest (a total of at least 10,000 books!) will be distributed in the coming weeks with the help of other partners and individuals working with disadvantaged children throughout the Philippines.
We've also set aside 1,000 books (500 each of Kulayan, and CANVAS Collection) for the child victims of the recent Typhoon Sendong in Mindanao. Even as donations for the basic necessities are now pouring in, we've been told that books, board games and other donations that can help keep children busy in these trying times are also needed. So this is our modest contribution to this effort. Together with Stray Interactive (our web design partner), these coloring books will also be accompanied by one set of crayons each. As with all our GlobalGiving books, this would not have been possible without your generous support!
