Giving Tuesday is December 1, 2015


Tuesday December 1, 2015 is “Giving Tuesday,” a movement to create an US national day of giving on the first Tuesday of December.   Would you consider donating any amount to the Bayanihan Foundation this holiday season? The Foundation’s ‘Pamasko’ (Gift Giving) For Indigent Children plans to give over 1,000 food packages to street children and their families. Did you know that over 37% of Filipino children and their families live on less than $3 a day? (Poverty Headcount Ratio, World Bank, 2012)

The ‘Pamasko’ (Gift Giving) Program plans to give food packages to street children, provide books and computers to different libraries and offer educational opportunities for indigent children so they could have a brighter future. Will you consider donating $10? $10 will provide 10 square meals for one child living in the streets, otherwise would have scavenged for food in a trash dump.  Your donation of $10, $100, $1,000 or whatever amount you can afford will make a difference in these children’s lives. Would you consider donating today and make a difference?
