In the Home Stretch – only $125 more to go!

December 1, 2010

Okay, can I just start by saying that I have, hands down, the MOST GENEROUS blog readers in the world!?  Seriously, the depth of your generosity has moved me to tears – 6 of the 17 who have donated are people I’ve never even met in person!  Now that’s incredible, because you’re not doing it for me, you’re doing it for the kids…

With those 17 donors help, we’ve raised $875 for this amazing cause.  We’re in the home stretch now, with only $125 more to raise to reach our goal of $1000!

Just in case you missed the initial Presents for Pinoys announcement, here’s a quick recap: we’re in the process of trying to raise $1000 to purchase 100 kids presents for Christmas.  The kids receiving these presents will be the children of Friendship Home, the ones I visit weekly (whom are frequently featured on this blog).  I can’t bear the thought of them not receiving anything for Christmas and I’m delighted that so many have you feel the same.

Will you be one of the remaining donors that will get us to our goal? Just click the ‘chip in’ button below to donate via paypal.

Update: We’re fully funded!!! YAHOO!

Stay tuned for pictures of the shopping, wrapping and gift giving over the next few weeks.  There’s sure to be lots of smiling faces.

With gratitude,

    The Chipin site has been a bit temperamental lately, but you can also just sent your donation directly via paypal to Otherwise just keep checking back to see if Chipin is back up and running.

    And doing it for the kids is what it’s all about. They are victims of circumstance and don’t deserve to be without toys this Xmas. How great that you came into their lives – and they into yours. Fate at its best!

    I couldn’t have said it better myself Chris!

  4. Yeah, I just tried to donate but it’s taking forever. Not sure if I can make it work. Not sure how I go about sending it to your email though.

    Sorry about that! How frustrating! If you have a paypal account, you can just login, go to the Send Money tab. There will be a short form to fill out:

    Step 1: put in my email address
    Step 2: Put in the amount you want to send
    Step 3: Choose US Dollars as the currency
    Step 4: Click the personal tab and choose ‘gift’
    Step 5: Hit continue
    Step 6: Enter your credit card info (if not already there) and submit

    Hope that helps! Apologies for the frustration – we’d really love your donation though! :)
