BENEFITING: Books for the Barrios, Inc.
HOURS PLEDGED: 15
This party was hosted at the non-profit Books for the Barrios. My friends brought gifts of toys, books and cash to help build libraries in the barrios of the Philippines. After a cultural slideshow, we all packed and decorated boxes for cargo ships, then we tasted native food and listened to fairy tales.
Each of my guests got the book Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin (a bilingual fairy tale).
