Celebrating Valentines Day

February 14 and its Valentines Day! What makes it really special for me is the thought that there still a number of people who are willing to spend a little more than what the market value for a good cause. Kessa organized a Hearts Day Charity Drive At Work where we sold bouquets of flower to our colleagues and it turnout pretty well. We were able to raise a small amount of money worth Php 600.00 to add to our project. So we either buy it for more books or we will use it to buy paint so we could paint the dull looking shelf of Colalo Elementary School.

Again Thank you and here's a photo for you!

A Growing Number of Book Donors

And so it continues... Rosalie Amparo at Development Bank of the Philippines has been consistently sharing old books. I assume it was her old books that she had been giving or donating to The Project Mountain Alphabet and I don't know how could I ever thank her.

Thank you for helping us.... Will see you on our next project.

The Story Books from Cupcakes

Yey! Here are some brand new story books from selling cupcakes in the office. I am very happy to see the product of joint effort from different people. 

Thank you Angela Chua for really taking your time in going around the metro to find good and reasonable books. 

These books has English and Tagalog Version in one book.

I would like to pull the time and to see the reaction of those kids when they'll go to school and surprise them with their library full of books.

The Project Mountain Alphabet Fund Raising Activity

Everything seems impossible when we are starting the Project Mountain Alphabet. Everything seems so distant. I even don't know how to start the project. However, as I open up with my friends and colleagues everything seems so easy. Ideas are blooming like a bud of flower. Help are pouring in like a drop of rain coming from the sky, a blessing from the sky. Volunteers are sprouting up like a grain of wheat from the field, very eager to grow and bear fruit.

So one of the idea that I came across from a friend is to sell cupcakes at a higher price since it is for a charity work which we did. One of our colleagues volunteered to bake the cupcake and sell it to us on an even price just enough to augment the price of the ingredients.

We sent a blast email to our colleagues and orders came in. I would like to take this chance to Thank all of them for sparing a little of their financial resources to help for a good cause. We were able to raise more or less a Php 2000. This can buy a few good story books that we still could share to the pupils of Colalo Elementary School.

I am sure that they would love reading the books we all share. I am sure they will cherish every moment they would spent in the library. I am sure they would always look back at their school and will remember that somehow, somewhere someone was out there willing to share what they have for them to learn and to be better.

Feb 14 is International Book Giving Day

We are participating in the International Book Giving Day. International Book Giving Day is an organization aimed to give used or brand new books to the hands of many children all across the globe.Accordingly there are 3 simple ways to celebrate International Book Giving Day. On February 14 you can 1. Give a book to a friend or a family member 2. Leave a book in a waiting room or lobby where there are children. and lastly 3. Donate a Book to a charitable institution or individuals like The Project Mountain Alphabet.

What we would do to celebrate?

We are still collecting used or brand new books from individual and or organizations all across the globe (if possible) and to fellow Filipinos. The book they shared will then be wrapped and shipped to Colalo Elementary School for our first beneficiary. We are helping them have their own working library.

Furthermore, we are doing fund raising. At present we are selling cupcakes to our office mates. The amount we collected will be used in buying brand new books on February 14 to be added to our collection. Also, I started collected plastic bottles to be sold on or before February 14 to be added to our collections of brand new books for Colalo Elementary School.

Lastly, we appeal to the public to help us make it happen. We are accepting all kinds of donations (in cash or in kind). Rest assured that it goes to our beneficiaries 100%.

Red Velvet Cupcake Fund Raising Was A Success

Last year, I had a fund raising campaign to help so we could buy new books (story books) for our Project Mountain Alphabet Campaign.

I am thankful to my colleagues who had shell out some of their money to help out. The best Christmas gift is the gift of giving, sharing and the heart and willingness to help others who are lesser fortunate. I myself is so proud with all of them because I know they too have their errands but they still showed their support.

The project red velvet cupcake definitely had helped us a lot to gather a penny to buy new books.

I will post the pictures soon.
