Volunteers are not paid with money but enjoy and take pride in what they do to help their cause. Unlike other organizations, Pusong pinoy.org gives importance to both donors and recipients. Donors become more engaged because of this. Highly recommended. If you want to make a difference, however small the help may be, consider giving to this non profit. They welcome donations of kids story books.

The organization helps needy children in the Philippines, through donations of books and items for basic needs. The books bring knowledge, imagination and inspiration to young minds. With Pusong Pinoy the kids stand a better chance of getting out of poverty and making a contribution to society. This non-profit was started and continues to run at grass-roots level by dedicated individuals who are committed to making a difference.

This is a very open, honest and friendly organization who's goals, mission are very concrete and heart warming. I am very pleased to know that my donation and time spent goes a long way with Pusong Pinoy. The disclosure of my donations (or whoever donates) are very specific; down to how many people will be affected by the donation, to the place and time it will be disposed whether books, food or of monetary value.

Thank you Donna and the rest of Pusong Pinoy for upholding value and integrity to this organization. May I wish you more success to this organization.

Pusong Pinoy is an honest and reputable organization. That truly helps the indigent children of our country...a group like Pusong Pinoy that puts emphasis on education and opening doors to lots of unfortunate kids in the Philippines, they are literally creating a NEW and BETTER Philippines. The people behind this organization are very inspiring, their motive is very PURE. When I read about them a couple of years ago, I was convinced right away. They say it is better to give than to receive. I say, When you give and can cause change positively to one of these kids' life, that's even better... Thanks to Jay Martinez for being part of this.. :)

It's an honor to be able to write a review for one of my favorite nonprofits, Pusong Pinoy! I've seen them grow from a small group to a global organization that helps countless children. My friends and I have been able to donate tons of books to them to help in the development of literacy for under privileged kids in the Philippines. Back in 2011, my business partner, Judith Milano, donated to the Children of the Little Lights Ministry through the help of Pusong Pinoy and she celebrated her "birthday" party with the kids! It was a life changing experience as we saw the tremendous gratitude and joy of the children when we spent an afternoon with them along with the Miss Beauty of the Philippines - Tourism, Chasta Nechvatal. The current Miss Beauty of the Philippines title holder, Erina Lightholder, recently donated boxes of slightly used books to Pusong Pinoy also, and we look forward to supporting this wonderful group of HEROES as they continue their battle to end illiteracy in the Philippines.

I have always had a soft spot for the needy most specially the children. I first heard of Pusong Pinoy through a friend last year while I was planning my birthday- I wanted to make it a meaningful one. I was able to speak to one of the PP SUPERHERO who happens to be a friend too. He asked me to check their website and Facebook page to know more about Pusong Pinoy. I was moved by how it started - a mother wanting to teach her son how to be compassionate and generous thru a book drive.

So I went through with my plan and organized a no-gift party, I requested my guest to make donations in cash instead. The donations collected were then given to my PP SUPERHERO friend. From the time I have handed the donation up to the planning and implementation of how the funds will be used, I was updated by everyone. I was very impressed by their honesty and transparency.

What I am trying to say is that, Pusong Pinoy works with pure love and burning passion in helping the needy most specially the children.

I do believe that no matter where you're from, what your skin color is or what language you speak we all have a Pusong Pinoy in all of us, a heart that is always ready to give a helping hand to those in need.

To all PP Superheroes, thank you for giving your time and love. May the passion you all have continue to burn and give light to those in need. More power and KUDOS!

When I heard Pusong Pinoy, I never hesitate to give my support knowing their dedication in helping the less fortunate children in the Philippines in so many ways, especially the EDUCATION. I am glad for being part of this by giving hope and inspiration to those unable to achieve their dreams by their own. To the persons behind Pusong Pinoy, you've been honored for having a compassionate heart in your own way of serving.

More Power..!!

I learned about Pusong Pinoy though a friend and when I met the founder Donna Bernardo Rosario she had a great smile and have this "motherly" care and sincere concern when she was talking about her organization and how she would like to help the less fortunate children from the Philippines. She strongly believes that education is the best way to help the children. I hope this organization continues to grow and have your support in helping educate and change our children's lives.

I strongly believe that education is one of the best ways to help the less fortunate and thus share the passion that this organization embodies. Pusong Pinoy's mission of promoting education and literacy not only empowers kids but open doors of opportunities that would otherwise not easily be available to them. I myself was fortunate to receive scholarships in both my undergraduate and graduate degrees and feel very grateful to my sponsors who helped me realize my goals. Thus I know how Pusong Pinoy's work is important but also life-changing to the kids, students, and community they serve. In addition, the leadership and teamwork of volunteers in Pusong Pinoy are truly inspiring. They are dedicated, committed, and hard working and are truly making a difference. I am proud to be a part of this organization and know that my donation is used directly to help the Filipino children. I hope this organization continues to grow so that many more can be blessed to get Pusong Pinoy's aid and support.

PUSONG PINOY is a wonderful initiative from Filipinos who would like to help out young children in the Philippines. Increasing the literacy levels of the young children will impact on their futures. Literate children do better in life. It takes just one book at a time to create positive change in the lives of children. Imagine how many lives will be affected when more books are donated!

I am a mom and a primary school teacher. I know that being exposed to books encourages creativity, critical and imaginative thinking amongst children. Increasing literacy rates is a cause that is close to my heart. Contributing to this cause has been a great joy. We can change the world of less fortunate children, one book at a time.
More power to PUSONG PINOY!

When Pinays (the vernacular for women of the Philippines) like me, who often are abroad,
read about calamities that strike our native country and would like to extend some help,
WE TRUST that the donations will reach the actual victims and those in real need whenever
we hand it over through PUSONG PINOY. A lot of my own relatives have joined the group.
I personally know how these young men and women have jobs and yet have volunteered
all their free time to help our fellow Pinoys. They are not getting paid to do this. More often
than not, they have to reach into their own pocketys and supplies to provide a need.
May more young people be like them to prove that, indeed, they are the force that will
ensure the world's survival.
