I would like to commend Bundles of Joy for their exemplary job in helping the People who were affected by the recent typhoon that hit the Philippines.
They were able to help a lot of families and individuals who lost their homes and love ones.

I salute this organization for their readiness to help.

After Typhoon Haiyan hit, Bundles of Joy quickly got the wheels rolling to get aid to those who needed it most. All of the donated money from the U.S. was sent to the Philippines to purchase tents for those who were left homeless. Not a penny of this donated money was used for administrative purposes or to cover the cost of sending the money overseas (the organizers paid for this out of their own pockets). Now that is what I call money well spent.

When times are hard, we often forget that there are others out there who have it even harder. Bundles of Joy has been consistent in fulfilling their commitment to raise awareness to help fight poverty in the Philippines by providing for basic needs and empowering the young through improved education. Their devotion to helping those who are less fortunate is truly inspiring!

It takes a big heart to start an organization such as Bundles of Joy, but it takes commitment, perseverance and an even bigger heart to keep such an organization going. Bundles of Joy continues to help those in need, offering hope and comfort to so many. I am in awe of the people who run this organization, not just because they find the time when so many of us don't but because they continue to do so year after year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ensure that it had more financial resources to help.
