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.
This year we raised money for scholarships for 2 elementary school children at St. Hannibal School in Parañaque, Metro Manila.
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.
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.
This week Bundles of Joy was able to distribute donated clothes to families in Manila affected by the devastating flooding.
I support this non-profit because it does good work.
A great non-profit does more than just fundraising. It inspires others to do their best and it helps individuals make a difference. This is what Bundles of Joy does.
Bundles of Joy has been busy sorting, packing and shipping donations that will be distributed at Christmas time in Metro Manila. Toys, clothes and household items from donors in California will be distributed at the Aya Multinational GK Village in Paranaque, a free housing project for the poor.
Bundles of Joy is spreading awareness about the plight of the poor in the Philippines. This non-profit fundraises and sends aid to schools, a home for the aged, squatter villages and other mission areas in the Philippines. I have worked with this year's fundraiser in partnership with St. Mark's Catholic Church in Belmont, CA. The First - Third graders in the Church's faith formation classes brought in old shoes that they had outgrown. The Fourth - Eighth graders brought in school supplies. The Youth Group donated the proceeds of their Souperbowl fundraiser to the cause. The congregation brought in donations of old clothes, shoes and school supplies. All donations collected were shipped to Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish in Manila, Philippines and distributed to poor families in their community. The school supplies were distributed at an elementary school for poor children that is run by the parish.
