Jillian's Philippines Service Trip

When I was 10, I had visited the Philippines and had witnessed first-hand the struggles and hardships Filipino families and children endured. Since then, I have made a promise to commit myself to do something to make a difference. 

This year, as my last year of high school, I decided to make a difference not only in my own community but in the global community. I had learned that 44% of the Philippines lived under $2 a day. 44% of the Philippines' population is nearly 40 million people. In perspective, that's the same as every single person in Canada, living under $2 a day.

Upon learning these facts and witnessing this for my own, I signed up for the Philippines service trip with my school board, knowing very well that this would be a challenge to pursue, but one I was more than willing to take head-on. 

I've created this GoFundMe so as to raise money for this initiative. Please support me in giving the gift of charity to those in need this Christmas. 

ALSO continue the positive change and SHARE this with your family and friends.
