Three weeks after the launch of our Project Hygiene Kit and we have finally turned over 1115 hygiene kits and other donated hygiene products to Ateneo de Davao University for distribution to the Typhoon Yolanda survivors in the Visayas Area.
At first, we thought it wasn't feasible- that we would not be able to reach the goal of producing 1000 kits within the target date of December 07. But day after day, me and my supportive team at Bloggers for Relief PH were getting overwhelmed with the influx of donations. People known and unknown to us helped us in disseminating about this advocacy through Facebook shares, retweets, IG reposts and most importantly, publishing about this project in their own respective blogs. For the first 24 hours, we were able to collect 150 pledges, and this number almost doubled every day until such time that in a span of 8 days, we were able to reach P100,000 for this project.
Once again, we couldn't THANK YOU enough for responding to our call and need. Thank you very much for your generous donations, for believing in us without hesitations, for not turning your backs on us and for trusting us with your hard-earned money. We know for a fact that there are a lot of other agencies which you can give your donations to, but we are very fortunate that you chose to be with us in this advocacy. We might not know and mention each and every one of you but I hope that this blog post will reach you in any way possible. You are not only a blessing to our team but to the more than a thousand typhoon Yolanda survivors who will be using these hygiene kits. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
