It’s almost time for Pinugay Elementary School’s annual Christmas Party! It will be held the morning of December 17th 2009 to be precise.
The school is situated in the mountains of Pinugay in Tanay, Rizal – a rural area about 3 hours from Metro Manila where people rarely have enough to get by. It’s become a tradition for the LittleTwinClan to throw the kids a party at Christmas and there’s no doubt it’s something the students look forward to.
The party is usually a simple affair. Last year, the teachers facilitated the games and the kids had a marvelous time. (It really doesn’t take much!) Aside from the fun, each student takes come a goody bag and in the past, thanks to donations from generous friends, we were able to stuff the bags with loot like:
- coffee (for the parents!)
- canned goods
- evaporated milk
For the game prizes, we usually have the following ready to hand out as soon as a game ends:
- toys (new or old but working)
- pencils / crayons
- coloring books
- reading books
Here’s hoping that we don’t just replicate what we did last year but outdo it
Donations in cash and kind are welcome. The items listed above are what we suggest but donors may have better ideas and can give what they like. Cash donations will likely be used to buy rice.
So to all our dear friends and readers from near and far, please spread some of that Christmas cheer to the little corner of the world known as the Pinugay Elementary School. There are at least 120 kids we need to treat – not to mention their younger siblings who aren’t in school yet but come to join the fun.
Do please click away on the “donate” button on the right. The Kiki & Lala Blog will post an accounting of how your precious donations were spent just as we did for the typhoon victims. Thank you in advance for opening your hearts and pockets!!
MALIGAYANG PASKO SA INYONG LAHAT!!!
(that means MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!)
Dear Kiki and Donors,
I do apologize for the delay…
Finally, here is the story of where all your generous contributions for the flood victims in Rizal province went exactly.
Kiki sent me $350…
…which as you can see came to P14,444.09.
LittleTwinBokal also gave me another P3,000 from a LittleTwinTita so I had a total of P17,444.09 to use! That is NOT bad for a LittleTwinBlog such as ours.
I gave P7,000 to LittleTwinBokal’s office to cover the cost of gasoline for the van and to buy rice.
So P17,444.09 – P7,000.00 left me with P10,444.09 to shop for relief goods!
I went to two supermarkets.
In Makati Supermarket, I spent…
The items on this bill included approximately:
- 60 instant noodles cup
- 100 cans of sardines
- 44 toothbrushes
- 30 packs of biscuits
- 10 packs of toothpaste sachets
- 50 bars of soap
- 6 packs of diapers
There were no small bottles of water in Makati Supermarket so I headed to S&R.
My total bill there was… P4,366.45
And with that I was able to buy:
- 210 bottles of water (350ml each)
- 100 cans sardines
- 84 noodle packs
- 102 tetra packs of milk (110ml each)
And when we put all that together… this is what it looked like…
So thank you once again to our donors – you know who you fabulous people are! – for opening your hearts and pockets for the people of Rizal province. As you can see, a little can go a long, long way.
Rizal is still recovering from this disaster, there is still a lot of work to do and we hope you can help us help the people there.
Maraming salamat, po!
