Fundraiser 2019 Davao Christmas "Food for Tots"

Dear family and friends;

I need HELP and your support to be able to provide meals to about 500 children for a Christmas Dinner in Bangkerohan and Maragusan, Davao City!

Last June 2019, I summited Mt. Whitney and had the 'adventure' of my life and almost had a NDE (near death experience). In one of my in and out consciousness (I had hypothermia and rhabdomyolysis/picture inset below with PCT kids who were my hero) I kept seeing a white church and can't figure out what it was. I'm born and raised Catholic and believe in God. I'm not religious BUT I DO BELIEVE in a Higher Being and do my best to live in love and kindness. Last summer I met a nice and kind gentleman whose vision is to help a pastor in Davao build his dream, in building a church in Maragusan. Although the building is still in it's unfinished phase, the movement (Shepherd of Lord Promises) and it's community will hold their annual Christmas event in Bangkerohan and Maragusan, Davao City. 

I will be traveling from the US to Davao to be in their presence and celebrate this event. 

The event will be on December 7 and 14, 2019 at 2 different locations. The pictures in the cover are from last years event and looking at those children just melt my heart just from the sheer joy and simplicity of life that they have. Living in a 1st world country definitely gives me a different perspective of life and often wondered how I can give back some of this blessings I enjoy to other people who has less than what I have and enjoy. 

I will be very grateful for any monetary help anyone can give to buy the meals for this event. I am attaching below information and links to the organization I am trying to support. 

As a first time fundraiser, I will use Go Fund Me but they have stipulations on funds and like any other business, they have fees. My desire is to you just be able to have enough funds (targeting $2000) to buy Jollibee (a fast food chain in the Philippines) and groceries for meal preparation in the outskirt of Maragusan. IF anyone just wish to Venmo me or use Paypal, please let me know, as I'd rather not pay fees and use those amount to buy more meals. 

If you have any question/s please message me (FB, IG, Viber) or call me.

This is my first fundraising and I hope it to be a successful endeavor with your generosity and kindness.

Love and Sincerely yours,

Information on the benefactor for this fundraising:
iLivinspire is a movement of the Shepherd of Lord of Promises that caters programs for kids and youth in certain communities throughout Mindanao. Its goal is to inspire and bring hope to the new and next generation through the Gospel.

This December 7 and 14, 2019, we will have a Christmas event and would like to bring something special to the kids in Maragusan and Compostela Provinces who belong to indigenous people groups and also in a slum area in Bangkerohan, Davao City. We desire to give them a meal instead of biscuits and toys or anything useful for these less privileged children. These are the three (3) main sites of our outreaches.
