For the past years, my friends and I have participated in various outreach programs, medical missions and other tutorial sessions for street children. This time we decided to organize our own fund raising event and host a Halloween party on October 30, 2010 for the kids of Virlanie Foundation, Inc., our recipient organization.
Virlanie serves as a home for children in need of special protection. This non-government organization provides help to hundreds of children who are poor, abandoned, abused, exploited, neglected and orphaned. The group we are helping consists of 50 children, with ages 3-12 years old. Our little project aims to raise funds so we can give these kids learning materials, toys, basic toiletries and medicines.
Our original plan was actually a toy drive wherein we’ll gather enough toys to give to the children. But then I realized, why not give them more than toys? I talked to my friends and they were all excited to help. I got a few pledges from family and friends and I’d also like to ask for your help if you want to share your blessings with these children.
I’m hoping to raise at least $500 by October 20 from this fund raising effort through ToyPusher.com. You may donate either via PayPal or bank deposit. Kindly send me an email if you are interested to help and I’ll give you more details. I encourage you spread the word about this and ask your friends or other people you know to donate as well.
As a way of saying thank you, I’ll be giving away a Nendoroid Snow Miku and a figma Black Rock Shooter to two people with the highest amount solicited for this project. So go ahead and ask your friends to help you. This is definitely for a good cause. I guess you’ll always be reminded of your kindness and how you made a lot of children happy every time you look at that Snow Miku or BRS figma. ^^
I’m also encouraging you to do the same in your area if you have the chance. I’d be happy to spread the word too and help you get more support. Thank you very much and I hope to hear from all of you.
Edit: I removed the PayPal donate button because I just found out that PayPal is charging a fee for every donation made. Please send your PayPal donations to firstname.lastname@example.org instead, with the word Donation as your subject.
Special thanks to Omniclone Toys for sponsoring figma BRS and offering a discount for Snow Miku. ^^
