Leo's BDay Benefit for the Philippines

Dearest Family and Friends,

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!! I hope that you are well. I would like to thank you all, near and far, who celebrated and supported my Birthday Cause to help feed 100 families affected by Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. The performances were breathtaking and it was truly a heartfelt evening for everyone.
Together we raised $2700 out of our $5000 goal! As we do today, lets always celebrate life and love with those who are in need.
To actualize this wish, I ask that you briefly share your experience and and my BDay Cause to encourage you're friends/family by word of mouth or the internet to support. If you were not able to participate it's not too late, there are families who still need our help and love.

I need to raise $2300 more by February 28, 2014 to feed 100 families in the Philippines. Any amount makes a difference!
For a contribution of $50 or more you will receive an image and "Thank you note" from the family you will sponsor to help feed for a month.

A BIG THANK YOU in advance to those who recently sent their donations via check to me directly. If any of you wish contribute in this way, please let me know.

Let's create real value on this Valentines Month. I appreciate you all from the bottom of my Heart.


In good Faith to you all, I have trusted friends and family directly affected by the recent disaster that have compiled a list of families who need our help. They will purchase food/sacks of rice, deliver them directly to these families and report back to us as proof of where our funds and efforts end up.
For every $50 you can sponsor to feed a family of 6 for 1 month. The fight to survive, recover and rebuild will be for years to come and so every bit counts. ANY AMOUNT, EVEN $1 IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.

These were my wonderful friends who performed for this cause on my Birthday at Dardo Galletto Studios:

Grammy Award Winning Composer and Pianist Fernando Otero.
