Wheelchairs are as important to our differently-abled friends as legs
are as important to normal people like us. Without it, they're limited
to what they can only do on their beds. Perhaps, imagining how they'll be able to
live their lives to the fullest.
These wheelchairs are costly but with every kind heart's contribution, we can buy as many as we can for the children.
Just as they say,
one person can make a difference, but a group can change lives.
This Christmas, we want only the best for the kids of Cottolengo
Filipino Inc. That's why Davines Philippines, together with Davines
Creative Style Academy Batch 2016, is organizing this donation drive to
raise funds for wheelchairs that will be given to the foundation.
Cottolengo Filipino, Inc. is a non-profit religious and non-government organization owned and managed by the Sons of Divine Providence Congregation. This foundation is licensed and accredited by Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and aims to serve the most poor, abandoned, neglected, and surrendered children with disabilities. It houses differently-abled boys, who, despite their disabilities, manage to make volunteers smile through their funny antics and happy ways of life.
Our Davines Creative Style Academy Graduates of 2016 have been
visiting this foundation in Montalban, Rizal since last year, making
children happy with fun activities, various donations, and one thing
they all love, free haircuts!
It has been the group's
mission to use their God-given talents in paying it forward by giving
awesome haircuts to special children of this orphanage.
And with Christmas season fast approaching, we want to make this year's
outreach bigger and of course, the children happier. So along with the
efforts of our Davines Creative Style Academy graduates, we are having a
donation drive for those kind hearts who are willing to share their
blessings. Here is a rundown of what the kids need:
Donations in kind can be dropped off to 7H Sheridan Street,
Mandaluyong City, while for those who want to donate through Paypal or Credit/Debit Card, please do
so through this GoGetFunding campaign. Cash donations will be greatly
appreciated since we're raising money to buy special wheelchairs for
children with cerebral palsy, polio, and other rare disabilities.
For those who want to donate through bank transfers or cash, you may contact the number below.
If you wish to join us in our Christmas Party and Charity Program in
Cottolengo Filipino, Inc. on December 4, 2017, please let us know. We
and the kids would love to have you with us!
