Project Report | Dec 30, 2013
Resolve to make 2014 a year of giving

We hope you had a Merry Christmas and thanks so much to everyone who has set up recurring donations following our email on the 20th!

Today, we’re looking back on 2013. It’s been a fantastic year. Thanks to you, Filipino community leaders are able to run more workshops to reduce poverty and keep the community’s most vulnerable safe during floods.

These workshops include learning how to make saleable products out of trash, activities to help young people stay in school, and drills on what to do when disaster strikes.

The workshops you made possible are making all the difference for families like Mae’s. But while huge progress has been made in 2013, there are still too many families who we can’t reach because the centre isn’t yet fully equipped.    

This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help us get more families involved in the centre’s life changing programmes by setting up a monthly donation. When you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops and 2014 begins, GlobalGiving will match your gift.

Set up your monthly donation here 

If you’re not ready to commit to a monthly donation, your one-off donation, whatever its size, will be gratefully received.

Thanks so much, and we wish you a very Happy New Year!
