As we had gleefully posted in our last newsletter issue, the Jan. 25 fair had raised $10,030 at night’s end. This is before collectibles, Filipino Night Out with the Chicago Bulls ticket sales, online donations, and other donations.
We are now up to $10,607!
Maraming salamat for all your support!

We received an e-mail not too long ago asking us if we also took in donations in-kind. We currently don’t have the capacity to take in donations of clothing, food, supplies and medicine. But please take a moment to visit the Philippine Embassy’s Web site for leads and tips on how to help in-kind.
We face a long road ahead of us to recovery, but no help is too small. Maraming salamat for keeping typhoon-affected areas of the Philippines in your thoughts and prayers.
