Review for Bundles Of Joy, Foster City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Today I received a Facebook message from Father Saldua in Cebu City, Philippines saying thank you for the donations of used clothing that Bundles of Joy shipped to the San Carlos Seminary. The cargo boxes just arrived in Cebu and the donations will be distributed to families in need. Thanks to all our generous donors in the San Francisco area who made this possible.

Bundles of Joy is fundraising for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Philippines. Typhoon victims in Leyte, Samar and Cebu need help and will continue to need help for a long time. Bundles of Joy is supporting the relief efforts of the San Carlos Seminary in Cebu headed by Father Socrates Saldua and the St. Peters College of Ormoc Class of '63. Through their coordinated efforts relief goods have been distributed to 3,000 families in Leyte. Right now they are purchasing tents for families left homeless by the typhoon and assembling more food, water and medicine to be loaded on trucks and taken by vessel to Leyte for distribution next week. 100% of cash donations are sent for typhoon relief. Thanks to all our supporters for your generous donations.

In July 2013 the Filipino Club of Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, California donated 6 large cargo boxes full of clothing, toys and school supplies that they collected in a fundraiser. These inspiring high school students asked Bundles of Joy to ship these donations to the Philippines for distribution to needy families. The donations will be distributed in Carcar, Cebu, Philippines. It warms my heart to meet such lovely teens who care this much about community service.

Bundles of Joy has partnered with Cars for Causes to receive donations of cars, motorcycles, boats and RVs running or non-running. Cars for Causes sends a tow truck out to pick up the donated vehicle and helps the donor fill out the DMV paperwork. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. Cars for Causes then sells the vehicle and the profits go to Bundles of Joy. Today we received our very first donation. Mr. Sanny Leviste donated his car. Thanks, Sanny!

Bundles of Joy shipped school supplies to St. Hannibal Multi-Level School in Manila for the opening of the 2012 school year in June. This school provides a free education, uniforms, books and 2 hot meals a day to children from very poor families. In October 3 large cargo boxes of donations were shipped to Metro Manila for distribution at a free housing project for the poor. Donations included new and gently used clothing, children's books, personal items and household items. Bundles of Joy officers and volunteers are determined to make a difference and enrich the lives of the less fortunate in the Philippines.
