Friends of Finn's Bleeding Hearts' Club! Help is needed!

As you may know, Boracay is closed, yes, CLOSED! NO TOURISTS PERMITTED for 6 months while infrastructure is upgraded.

Finn started Finn`s Bleeding Hearts' Club, a non-registered charity that pays for schooling and the incentive to go by supplying food to those students.

When I was in Boracay, I saw the difference this makes in these little lives -- and the difference YOUR financial donations make.

Please find it in your heart to give a little extra so Finn can continue to help the kids while this crazy political issue gets sorted out. 

I've known Finn for over 25 years, maybe he's impacted your life along the way, too. 

* All donations go toward helping the children. *

Feel free to contact Finn directly if you have questions: ronnefinn@hotmail.com

$5 amongst many adds up! Your contribution helps! (There's an anonymous option herein, if you prefer.)

Message from Finn:

Another school year is ending for the Children of Finn's Bleeding Heart Club.

What a great year it has been for both the children and me.

When I started this charity, my goal was to improve the children's lives and give them a chance at a better life. I wanted them to learn English and to get a good education so they would have the possibility to find a good job in the future.

I have decided to do my best to further make this happen. My goal is to now enrol all 20 children in a private school that will give them an even greater chance at achieving their goals. It is a big undertaking, but they are worth it.

The cost per child per school year is 30000 peso, which is $800CA (/$620US or $800 Aussie).

The breakdown of the costs are:

- Tuition and Books 21000 Peso
- Uniforms and Shoes 2500 Peso
- Big lunch everyday 6500 Peso

That's $1 a day per child.

There are 3 ways this can be done:

30,000 pesos received by May 15 and 1 child will be sponsored for a year.

22,000 pesos received by May 15 and the remaining 8,000 pesos by Nov 15 and 1 child will be sponsored for a year. ($587CA + $213CA)

A smaller amount received and I can pool the money together and get more children enrolled.

Thank you to those who have helped the children in the past; you’ve already made their lives so much better.

My total goal to have all children enrolled is to raise 6,000,000 pesos which is $15,000CA (/$12,000 US or $15000 Aussie).

Thank you!

The reason we need money now is Boracay was closed down with 21 days notice to all the people who live there so 90% of all the local people lost their jobs for the next 6 months and had no time to prepare for the shutdown because it happened with no warning and no time to a least put some money aside.

I take nothing. I have sufficient income from investments I made as a top realtor working with Anna Jorgensen

If you have any questions, please let us know.

New birthday outfits for Nene & Mary J!
