Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International

Mission: Our mission is to build a global network of supporters dedicated to fighting poverty in the Philippines. We are committed to helping the poor by providing for their basic needs (i.e. food, clothing, medicine) and by creating a brighter future for their youth through improved education.

Results: This year we gave scholarships to two elementary school children at St. Hannibal School in Parañaque, Metro Manila for the 2015-2016 school year. In 2013 & 2014 we raised funds for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. Typhoon Haiyan (local name Typhoon Yolanda) hit the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013 and caused major damage on the islands of Leyte, Samar and Cebu. Donations collected were used to buy tents, food, water and medicine for relief efforts coordinated by the San Carlos Seminary in Cebu and the St. Peter's College Class of '63. Relief goods were distributed to over 3,000 families in Leyte.

Programs: Educational scholarships for poor youth Disaster relief for victims of natural disasters Distribution of food and clothing for the poor

Bundles of Joy is a very small non-profit run by all part time volunteers. We don't have the same impact as larger organizations who have large staffs and big budgets. Our philosophy is that each person we help is a success story. This year we are focusing on education and we have started an online fundraiser for scholarships. https://www.commitchange.com/ca/foster-city/bundles-of-joy/campaigns/scholarships-for-needy-youth

Bundles Of Joy for me is the best Charitable Organization. The Donated Goods and money 100% directly go to people in dire need.

I choose to donate to Bundles of Joy because I trust that what little contribution I make will help put a smile on a Filipino's face - sometimes young, sometimes old, but always less fortunate. That is what's important to me, knowing that my help reached the person I intended to receive it and that I made a difference - through Bundles of Joy.

Today I received a Facebook message from Father Saldua in Cebu City, Philippines saying thank you for the donations of used clothing that Bundles of Joy shipped to the San Carlos Seminary. The cargo boxes just arrived in Cebu and the donations will be distributed to families in need. Thanks to all our generous donors in the San Francisco area who made this possible.

Poverty is a problem in the Philippines that will not go away overnight. Grass roots groups like Bundles of Joy know that they can not solve the problem, but they focus on helping the poor one person at a time and bringing some joy into people's lives.

I'm proud to be a part of the Bundles of Joy organization because this group cares deeply about the communities it serves. As just one example, for years Bundles of Joy has been fulfilling its goal to help disadvantaged kids get a good education by supporting an elementary school in Metro Manila, Philippines through donations in cash and in-kind. It's a huge goal, and this small organization does everything it can to help make an impact. The team is dedicated and does great work.
