Empire Flippers Christmas Gift Project 2018

We started this as a fun side-project 7 years ago, but have continued it (mostly) because it's so much fun!

Back in 2011, we thought it would be nice to give a little something back to the community where we ran our business. (Davao City, Philippines) There are an awful lot of people in need - particularly parents looking to give their children some Christmas gifts.

We thought we could help with that and so we donated some of our profits that year to the "Christmas Gift Project" we started.

Here's a video from our project in 2012:



We'd like to do something similar this year, but in THREE different locations:

- Saigon, Vietnam
- Davao City, Philippines
- Cotabato, Philippines

All three of these areas are important to us. We have teams/help coordinated in each location.

Who Are You?

My name is Justin Cooke and I'm a partner at a company called Empire Flippers.

We help others buy, sell, and invest in online businesses. We have a "distributed team" which means we all travel pretty regularly - spending most of our time in/around SE Asia.

We have quite a few other entrepreneurial friends here in SE Asia and have recruited them to help us - should have around 5-10 in each location available to help us hand out gifts.

Why Are You Raising Money?

We're going to use these funds to buy, wrap, and distribute gifts to children in need in both the Philippines and Vietnam.

This was created for friends, fans, and customers of Empire Flippers, but feel free to donate if you wish!

How Will The Money Be Used?

All proceeds will go towards the gifts, gift giving, and transport.

Empire Flippers will match the first $2,000 with our own $2,000, doubling the budget!

This will work just fine with a budget of around $4K - $6K. If we end up with significantly more than that, we'll get in contact with the children's hospitals here to see what we can do on a larger scale.

How Soon Do You Need The Funds?

We'll need some time to buy and then wrap all of the gifts, so let's put a deadline on this of December 14th, 2018. That will give us enough time left over to put it together!

Can You Share Pictures Or Video After You're Done?

Of course! We've made videos in the past and we promise to either do a video or share photos on our social media when we're done, for sure!

Thanks in advance for any donations - you've made a kid's Christmas this year! :-)
