Hi everyone! We hope you are well.
As we all know, communities and hospitals in the PH are in bad shape and the next months will be rough.
If you can, please donate to aid our frontliners who experience shortage of PPEs and other medical needs and our fellow Filipinos who have lost their means of livelihood.

Please check photos and links for more info.
You can send your monetary donations through paypal, credit/debit card, gcash, or bank transfer.

God bless.

Lazada and ticket2me have many organisations that you can donate to.
