I am a first generation immigrant here in the United States. My whole entire family is still in the Philippines. I am the youngest of 7 children. I grew up poor by US standards. But my parents provided for most of our needs.
When I moved here in US I realized it was not easy to go through life without my family. It was hard to navigate through the cultural differences of Philippines and the US. It was hard to find a community that I felt like I could belong to. I however consider myself lucky because I was able to find a good job, found good people to call my friends and live a good life.
This is not the case for others. There are still a lot of people that live in poverty. There are kids that need good role models. There are the elderly who need help. This is where BronxWorks come in. I am running the New York Marathon and raising funds in support of the Bronx Works organization to help poor families in that area. I'd like to give back to the community and I'm asking your help to support me in this endeavor. Any dollar donation you can make will go a long way to help people in need. Please consider donating. Thank you so much.
