I'm raising money for children in the Philippines! All donations will go towards either a local orphanage near my home in Manila, or towards a charity of choice (e.g., LifeChild, He Cares Foundation, etc.)
The past few times i went back to the Philippines with my grandmother she organized feeding programs for hundreds of children, and even brought some who were homeless into the house to shower and be given new clothes. Having had the opportunity to participate in something like that at such a young age is what continuously inspires me to support the children of my home country. Last year, before my 18th birthday, I started this fundraiser as well as a drive for clothing and school supplies. After a few months i had received around 3 boxes of physical donations and about $200 online. Unfortunately, due to complications with gofundme I was unable to withdraw that money and therefore was forced to return it.
As i am leaving for the Philippines in just over two months, I decided to give my fundraiser another chance and hope to raise that money again. Many children and families in the Philippines suffer from poverty and it's effects, leaving millions starving, homeless, and unable to afford school. I hope that the money I raise will help improve the quality of life of even a just a few children, because every change makes a difference. Any donation counts, and even sharing this fundraiser helps! Thank you so much!
