Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International

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

Bundles of Joy is a very small non-profit run by all part time volunteers. We don't have the same impact as larger organizations who have large staffs and big budgets. Our philosophy is that each person we help is a success story. This year we are focusing on education and we have started an online fundraiser for scholarships. https://www.commitchange.com/ca/foster-city/bundles-of-joy/campaigns/scholarships-for-needy-youth

In 2014 Bundles of Joy collected donations of used clothing, shoes, toys and household items in California through donation drives. These donations were shipped to Our Lady of Peace Mission in Manila and distributed to needy families.

Bundles Of Joy for me is the best Charitable Organization. The Donated Goods and money 100% directly go to people in dire need.

I choose to donate to Bundles of Joy because I trust that what little contribution I make will help put a smile on a Filipino's face - sometimes young, sometimes old, but always less fortunate. That is what's important to me, knowing that my help reached the person I intended to receive it and that I made a difference - through Bundles of Joy.

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.

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.

I'm proud to be a part of the Bundles of Joy organization because this group cares deeply about the communities it serves. As just one example, for years Bundles of Joy has been fulfilling its goal to help disadvantaged kids get a good education by supporting an elementary school in Metro Manila, Philippines through donations in cash and in-kind. It's a huge goal, and this small organization does everything it can to help make an impact. The team is dedicated and does great work.

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.

Bundles of Joy is always among my favorite nonprofits. Through the years I have watched them grow and engage family, friends and others to give time, clothes and even old vehicles to help the poor in the Philippines.They are professional, committed and creative. All this they do with an element of fun. The work they do inspires me so when I have time or something excess to share Bundles often comes to mind.

Being part of Bundles of Joy has been a great opportunity. My family and I have been active in distributing all the goods here in the Philippines. It is a beautiful experience seeing those happy faces and knowing that in some way, we've made a difference. We were made to be instruments to give these poor families great hope and joy. Every little donation is very much appreciated. Please help support the cause. May our organization continue to grow and improve the lives of many.

Bundles of Joy was voluntarily and whole-heartedly organized by our family members in California who wish to free people from poverty. It is with great love and kindness to have thought of this and and with much dedication to have this realized. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people in different countries have benefited from this generous gesture. I have been helping out in distributing the donations here in the Philippines, Cebu in particular. There is no greater joy than to see the happy faces of people when they receive the goods. Me and my family wish to thank the people who have been a part of this cause and at the same time, we would like to invite more people to support Bundles of Joy.

When we give away things like old shoes, sometimes we think nothing much of it but rather how refreshing it is that we finally got to clear up much-needed closet space. What you might not know is that those old shoes traveled across the Pacific Ocean to land into the hands of a delighted little girl who can now walk comfortably a 2-kilometre stretch to get to school. And for just a pair of used shoes ... you should have seen her smile. I sure did when I was helping out with the distribution of goods.

Bundles of Joy makes all this possible. Every little donation is heaven-sent, especially for people who know what it is like to live day by day with next to nothing. Around 70% of Filipinos live in poverty. Bundles of Joy is commited to its cause of alleviating that and helping these families empower themselves. It is more than just a foundation. Bundles of Joy is a movement, established by people with big, mighty hearts showing that simple acts of kindness from you --- no matter how small --- do make a world of difference. Please, please, please support the cause and help keep the movement going.

It takes a big heart to start an organization such as Bundles of Joy, but it takes commitment, perseverance and an even bigger heart to keep such an organization going. Bundles of Joy continues to help those in need, offering hope and comfort to so many. I am in awe of the people who run this organization, not just because they find the time when so many of us don't but because they continue to do so year after year.

I am a member of my school's Filipino Club, and we recently organized a collection of used clothes, shoes, toys, and school supplies. These donations were sorted and boxed, and we collected a total of 6 large boxes. I had been trying to find a way to send over these donations to various organizations in the Philippines, and Bundles of Joy was more than happy to do this for us. They drove to my house to pick up the boxes, and were very kind and friendly. They commended myself and the club on our actions. Bundles of Joy is an excellent nonprofit organization, and we hope to work with them again in the future.
