821 million people go to bed hungry every night. Giving an animal is like giving someone a small business, providing wool, milk, eggs and more. Animal donations can provide families a hand up, increasing access to medicine, school, food, and a sustainable livelihood. Your animal donation will support the lives of families in need.

Gift Wrapping for Philippines
Nene and her team will offer gift wrapping each Sunday in December (3rd, 10th and 17th) 8am -1pm on a donation basis. You can drop your gifts and pick up the next Sunday or at the chili dinner on December 17th. The donations collected will make a significant difference in the lives of children at Baclayan Elementary School in Nene’s hometown. By providing essential school supplies, you can help around 100 students, from kindergarten to 6th grade, who face challenges due to financial constraints. Your support allows us to prioritize their education, breaking the cycle of limited opportunities and creating a brighter future.
We kindly request your assistance in monetary donations (checks or cash) as well as items like paper, pencils, pens, crayons, watercolor paints, and books. Additionally, the school needs a projector for special events to enhance the learning experience. Your contributions will help these children with the tools they need to excel academically and create better futures for themselves. Your monetary donations will also help cover the cost of shipping ($95 a box). See the table at the Gift market on Dec. 3rd or in the preschool hallway by Room 11 on the other Sundays.
