i am happy to announce that we were able to raise $2,200 for this ondoy victims fund drive. from the total of $1,935 below, we received a pledge of $65 from Erwin (Baltimore) to finally reach our target of $2,000. he wanted to have the honor of putting the remaining amount for us to attain our goal.
late in the afternoon yesterday, a close friend who wanted to remain anonymous, dropped by in our house to give a $200 donation. this is why we were able to surpass the target! as i mentioned in my facebook status, this is equivalent to about P100,000!!!!
again, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. my family are so humbled by this turn out. we will be forever grateful to all of you who believed in this cause.
i will be sending the money later via money transfer to my superfriend (!), janet javier, to facilitate the procurement of needed supplies (food and other items) and the actual distribution of the relief goods. she will be assisted by the whole gang (its you - shawie, tj, karen, chi, claire, jojo, olan and the rest) in this relief operations. i was told by janet that she will coordinate to the local government the actual distribution of the goods for security and safety of everyone.
please note that i will be advancing the money that we are yet to receive (pledges). im doing this so that we can already facilitate the distribution of the goods.
thank you again everyone!!!
