Bohol Earthquake relief donation sent!

Bohol Earthquake donation receiptI am humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity and response to my call for donations to Bohol Earthquake Relief a couple of weeks ago. I am very happy to announce that I just sent a donation of $900.00 to Gawad Kalinga USA for their relief operations benefiting their earthquake relief operations in Cebu and Bohol. Click on the image to view the donation receipt.

I cannot thoroughly express in words my gratitude and appreciation to everybody who sent in their donations and also to those who shared my fundraising efforts on their social media channels. I hope my recording of “Sakali” conveys this warmth in my heart and soul brought about by this tremendous act of kindness from all the donors. Mabuhay kayong lahat!
