BENEFITING: PROJECT PEARLS INC
For the last 24 years, I have been celebrating my birthday in U.S. with family and friends. There were quiet birthday parties, there were crazy ones. And I am always blessed and spoiled with birthday gifts and feasts and lots of margaritas!
This year, I am very excited and very blessed that I will be in Manila on my birthday. Not only I will be celebrating it with family and friends back home, I will be celebrating my birthday with hundreds of children in Ulingan and with the amazing Project PEARLS volunteers!
But this year, I do not want to celebrate my birthday for ME! I want to celebrate my birthday, my life for and with the children of Ulingan.
Because they were born and being raised in poverty, most children in Ulingan do not celebrate their birthdays as most children do. Some do not even know when their birthday is. How tragic is that? For most children, birthday is one of the most anticipated and exciting life's celebrations!
I want my birthday to be a celebration of the lives of the children in Ulingan. I want these children to feel loved, wanted and cared for. I want them to start celebrating their lives each day!
With your support and generosity, I am hoping that on May 11, 2012, we can all celebrate LIFE, LOVE, HOPE and FAITH with the children of Ulingan! I want to throw a party and feed over 300 children !
Thank you so much in advance!
