I work overseas as a computer professional and in one of the seminars I attended I heard somebody talk about SAS Ai, Inc., the public-charity organization. All of the things said about the organization were positive. When I inquired further on their mission, I was surprised to hear that they were into helping kids who come from poor families get a good high school education. I hold education near and dear to my heart because this is how I was able to find a good job... through education. I commend SAS Ai for their works of charity.

I am no stranger to business, nor a greenhorn in the domain of non-profit organizations. I have a vast experience in the business of fund raising and promoting good programs. SAS Ai is an exemplary organization. The team is very cohesive and they are very focused on their mission. I salute them on their success. More power to SAS Ai, Inc.

We are currently meeting with other members of our graduating class in order to decide when we will sponsor one scholar with SAS Ai, Inc. We believe that SAS Ai has the best program for our kids there in Tagudin and we are going to support their mission.

I am a graduate of St Augustine's School. When I first heard of SAS Ai, Inc and their scholarship program, I couldn't believe at the generosity of the assistance package. But over time I have seen the way it has helped many in our hometown of Tagudin. I can really support the mission of SAS Ai and I can truly appreciate their efficiency and professionalism.

SAS Ai, Inc. is a public charity organization operating under the 501(c)(3) IRS tax code. Donors can claim their donations to the SAS Ai scholarship fund as a tax deduction. What a program these guys run. Very efficient and most professional.

I am considering making a donation to the SAS Ai scholarship fund because I have heard nothing but good things about their scholarship program.

I just think of the poor kids who go to bed hungry at night. All of us should help these kids get something to eat and to get a good education. SAS Ai, Inc. is a public charity organization that is talked about a lot in our parish. Their mission to help these kids gives a compelling argument to make a donation. I can support this group.

When I was in the active military I had an opportunity to help build a school building in the Philippines compliments of the United States Navy. I saw the face of poverty in those shanties and rows of lean-to's the people called home. I also sensed a tremendous amount of hope from those kids as they watched us put up the roof of their new school. SAS Ai is doing the same thing. I heard Tom Buenavista's presentation and I believe that SAS Ai's mission is something I can subscribe to and support.

I have heard a lot of good things about SAS Ai and their mission to help bright kids who come from poor families get a good high school education at SAS. Although I have not donated any money, I am trying to save some so I can start and allotment. These kids sound like they are motivated. More power to them. Also, SAS Ai is the standard by which all scholarship programs are measured against.

When brother knight Tom Buenavista presented to our council his non-profit organization SAS Ai, Inc., I felt that their mission was something I could support. Their mission is to help bright kids who come from poor families get a good high school education through scholarship assistance. Some of our members did donate to the scholarship fund. I believe we need more organizations such as SAS Ai, Inc.
