Lingap Children’s Foundation is HOPE for a brighter future, a PROMISE for lost, abandoned, abused, forgotten and some nearly dead children providing food, shelter, education and a safe haven. It offers opportunity for the forsaken innocent children. Founder John Drake works passionately and tirelessly for such a worthwhile cause. ‘Tito John’ as he is fondly called by the children and staff of Lingap, answered God’s call and is a living witness to Mother Teresa’s words “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.” Tito John went BEYOND helping the one nearest him commuting from Michigan, USA keeping his promise in support of Lingap. Know that your financial support help RESCUE innocent neglected lives and serve as a LIFELINE making a difference for a lifetime. 100% of donations go to Lingap Children’s Foundation.

I had the opportunity to help assess the area education offered to the Lingap children a few years ago while visiting the Lingap Center. The experience was life changing. The children now attend private schools and are flourishing. They did attend schools where it was not unusual to have 50-60 students in a very small classroom. They had to copy from a blackboard everything. They had no textbooks. The difference the staff have seen with their educational growth today and what took place then has been astounding.

These children are always so appreciative, prayful, and loving. I am still in touch with some of the children and they continue to move forward despite their past hardships. I witnessed firsthand how all our donations are used. Wow...every cent is used for a good purpose.

The Street Program is a living testimony of "greatness in action". The entire Lingap Center is a gift to the world in so many ways.

"We are the hands and feet of Christ." This applies without limit to John and Judy and all those who are responsible for the Miracle that is ongoing at the Lingap Center everyday. I have seen this miracle first hand and it has changed my life's goal. We have giants of LOVE in our midst. Even in the tragedy of this typhoon John's arms want to embrace ALL the people who need help. Let's make an effort to help in our own little way by supporting John's efforts to bring love and care to this wonderful mission of Lingap Childrens Foundation.

If you have not met John Drake and heard about The Lingap Center you have missed an unbelievable miracle! He has created growth and beauty from a desperate situation. I didn't think I could add another thing to my plate, but found it is so easy when I realized what John has and is accomplishing. His presentation that details the the struggles they have endured and the successes they have had should be shown at every organization - especially ones that kids are involved in.
I am thrilled to have met John and his cause and feel blessed every time I contribute or have any interaction with such a noble cause!

My wife and I have volunteered for the Lingap Children's Foundation for the last four years. Every year we love doing everything we can because we know 100% of our efforts directly impact the children. It is such a great organization that gives these children a new chance at living. Love everything about it!

My wife and I have helped volunteer at Lingap Children's Foundation fundraisers, and I can honestly say that the time and effort that John and Judy put forth at all times is simply amazing. I think that many of us don't realize the true impact we can have on a child's life halfway around the world, just by simply donating our time and money to this wonderful cause. Getting to meet some of the children from the Lingap Center at these events has given me an even greater appreciation for the work that John and Judy do. They are truly wonderful people, and I can only hope to be that giving in my future years.

As a volunteer for the Lingap Children's Foundation, I have had frequent contact with President and founder of the organization, John Drake, as well as his wife, Judy. Both John and Judy have made it their life mission to serve the needy children of The Lingap Center by making their lives incredibly better with love, support, encouragement, healing, schooling (in addition to food, housing and medical care). Not only have they changed the lives of the children at the center for the better, but they have reached out even further to educate street children and provide food to those needy people in the area. The impact the Lingap Children's Foundation has made in so many lives is indescribable. The most recent great accomplishment they have seen includes children that grew up at the center and are now college graduates. It is an honor to volunteer for such an honest and downright incredible organization.

Personally I would just spend more of my time trying to help, but I would make zero changes to this organization other than having it become more well known.

As a committee member of the Lingap benefit, I was completely impressed with the way that John Drake runs the organization. He puts 110% towards the children and the betterment of their lives. I have never seen anyone so committed to a cause as John is to the Lingap Foundation. His enthusiasm for the cause is definitely contagious.

The Lingap Center took children who once lived in a slaughter house and gave them each shelter, food, education, and most importantly, a loving family. Mr. John Drake loves all of the Lingap kids like his own, and always keeps their interests at the center of his goals. Every cent of every donation is used to directly benefit the lives of these kids whom Mr. Drake ensures their success. There is no better place to donate if you want your money to truly make the world a better place.

I am so impressed with the way that The Lingap Children's Foundation operates. Their care for the children in the Philippines, their financial transparency, and each worker's personal conviction are all reasons that I am happy to support The Lingap Children's Foundation's work.

We support 194 children at the orphanage and more thru the outreach program. I've been to the orphanage four times and cannot say enough good things about the staff and John and Judy Drake.
Without them these children would be on the streets or living in horrible conditions.

I have been to the Orphanage twice and plan on going again in 2012.
John is a miracle worker and Judy is right there with him every step of the way.
The children and the staff at the Center are wonderful and I wish
every supporter could get to meet them. The children need so much love
and I was priviledged to be able to share it with them.
I started supporting John's project in the beginning and am glad to know that 100% goes to the project.
If I could give more than the five stars I would.

John Drake and I rode the school bus together over 50 years ago. When he came to my Rotary club when Lingap was in the planning phrase, he captured our spirit, our hearts and our imagination. His plan was simple and it did not involve millions of dollars. I think he needed $300,000 to get Lingap center converted. That struck me as a goal that was reachable and one that our club's contribution could really amount to something. Thank you John for enriching our lives, by being apart of the tremendous success of the Lingap Center. Praise be to God.

Our Rotary Club has followed and given financial support to the Lingap Foundation, since it's creation. We got excited about this organization because we are a small club and we were able to make meaningful contrbution to a wonderful project that has literlly saved the lives of so many children. I have know the John Drake since high school, and I can verify his integrity, talent and commitment toward Lingap. He makes every dollar go so fall toward making the school so successful.

John Drake has had students from the Lingap school visit our Rotary Club meetings. It was very emotional to see children who were destined to be lost in a the dispair of poverty, transformed into a person who now had hope in her future.
