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
In 2014 Bundles of Joy collected donations of used clothing, shoes, toys and household items in California through donation drives. These donations were shipped to Our Lady of Peace Mission in Manila and distributed to needy families.
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.
This year we raised money for scholarships for 2 elementary school children at St. Hannibal School in Parañaque, Metro Manila.
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.
This week Bundles of Joy was able to distribute donated clothes to families in Manila affected by the devastating flooding.
I support this non-profit because it does good work.
A great non-profit does more than just fundraising. It inspires others to do their best and it helps individuals make a difference. This is what Bundles of Joy does.
I have witnessed Bundles of Joy make an impact on the lives of many. Through Bundles of Joy, its advocacy and efforts, many get to help transform lives. Keep it up.
