EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2011
I am going back to the Philippines this summer and while I'm there, I plan to help out my old country.
HOW DO I HELP?
The goal is to donate USED/new school bags (back packs, reusable grocery bags, purses, etc) to the street children in the Philippines when they start school in June.
For every 100 Filipino school children enrolled each year, 66 will complete elementary education and 42 high school. Only 14 will earn a college degree. Any kind of bag would be appreciated, as many of the children use plastic bags as their school bags due to the high level of poverty. Plus it's not asking a lot from you.
WHERE TO DROP OFF BAGS?
WILL WE SEE PICTURES?
Yes, I will be taking pictures of the bags being delivered.
