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.

I have watched Mel and Elana, their kids and friends through the years working year round, year after year selflessly and tirelessly bring in donations and support for the poor in the Philippines. They are an inspiration to watch as a family and as caring members of the community doing things beyond their core so that they can reach out to others. I would gladly donate the little that I have and volunteer my time to help them reach their targets. This year and the coming years.
