Philippines Volunteer Program

I've been lucky enough to be selected for a volunteer program through my employer and I'll be heading to Northern Mindanao in the Philippines with others from Optus and our partner sites. 

The volunteer activities will have a social and environmental focus including tree planting, a sports clinic and delivery of a Digital Thumbprint session.

So, this is where you come in!
All travel expenses including flights, accomodation, meals etc are covered but I'm raising funds so we can help out the local children in the communities we'll be visiting.

The funds will go directly to the people on the ground. We'll get to see first hand what they really need and what will make a difference to their day to day lives. This is where your donation will go. I'll give a full run down on my return on what the funds were used for and will of course include some pictures.

How am I contributing?
I'll be doing other fundraisers on the side as well BUT whatever I raise here, I'll match 20% of it as a donation. If we raise $500, I'll donate $100, if we get $1000, I'll donate $200. You get the idea!

All of the rewards are a thanks from me to you for donating. None of the funds raised here or elsewhere will be used to fund the purchase of them.
