Rating: 5 stars   51 reviews

Issues: International

Location: PO Box 8207 Foster City CA 94404 USA

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

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.

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!

Bundles of Joy is a non profit organization promoted by dedicated members of the Suazo family. I have seen pictures and heard about the touching stories on how the littlest help from open hearted supporters have helped others. Keep up the good work and let us keep supporting Bundles of Joy

“EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON WHICH YOU CAN USE TO CHANGE THE WORLD.” – Nelson Mandela. One of the goals of Bundles of Joy is to improve the education of the less fortunate in the Philippines. Poverty is rampant and many children do not have the opportunity to get a general education. Those that are able to attend public schools are unable to get a proper education because of a lack of basic needs. These children walk to school without suitable clothing. In the classroom, learning is challenging because of the lack of school supplies and textbooks. More importantly, they go through the day without proper nutrition. Bundles of Joy supports an elementary school and provides the students with school supplies, books, clothes, and shoes. Bundles of Joy empowers these young people by giving them the opportunity to learn and a chance to forge a better life for themselves and for their families.

Through the years, Bundles of Joy has helped thousands of needy people in the Philippines. Not only does this organization help during calamities, it also regularly helps individuals and organizations, alleviating poverty and its effects one person at a time. Organizations such as BOJ need our support because their organizers are self-less, motivated only by their shared mission to help; to give to the poor and the destitue -- people who live and walk among us who need to know that they are not alone, that someone cares, and that there is room for hope. Bundles of Joy organizers have big hearts. They help wherever they feel they are needed. I know for a fact that they have helped many, many poor families in the California area.

This is a great non-profit. I have donated clothes which were shipped to the Philippines for distribution to poor families. I recommend supporting this charity if you want to help fight poverty in the Philippines.

Bundles of Joy has done a phenomenal amount of work to give aid directly to those in dire need in the Phillippines. I support their efforts every chance I'm able. I also have tremendous respect for Bundles of Joy for the positive message & great example they give our community through groups such as Girl Scouts, Church Groups, etc, to support charities.
