BUNDLES OF JOY
October 26, 2012

This year Bundles of Joy shipped donations collected in Northern California to Missionaries of the Poor in the town of Talisay, on the island of Cebu in the Philippines. MOP is a Catholic organization that runs a program for handicapped children in Talisay and does outreach to the poor in the area. Bundles of Joy also shipped donations of children's clothes, shoes, books and toys to an orphanage in Bulacan, a province outside of Metro Manila.

BUNDLES OF JOY
May 10, 2012

Bundles of Joy is a California-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fighting poverty in the Philippines and striving to give needy Filipino youth a brighter future through education. Education will help break the cycle of poverty and improve lives. The Bundles of Joy team has developed partnerships with agencies in the Philippines to provide outreach to the poor. We also work with local groups in our community here in California such as Girl Scout troops, schools, local companies and churches to fundraise. We have collected and distributed donations in many areas in the Philippines such as Manila, Cavite, Cebu, Bulacan, Cagayan and Iligan. We are very grateful to generous sponsors and donors who have made our mission a reality.

meeting the needy recipients of donations in the Philippines and seeing first hand the impact that these donations have on their lives.

Ways to make it better...

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

find more volunteers to help out so we can do more and have a greater impact.
