I believe that hard times can bring out the best in people. Now is your chance to help!
It is my first time to create a birthday fundraiser. Since Facebook currently does not support fundraisers for Philippine charities, I thought I'd give this a shot.
A few weeks from now, I will reach Level 40. Since that is a life achievement unlocked, my goal is to reach at least P40,000 by my birthday on July 10. They say life begins at 40 and it would be oh-so-sweet to be able to help a no-kill shelter called Pawssion Project PH. According to their website, Pawssion Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of dogs in distress.

Why Pawssion Project?
- People who know me are aware that I have a soft spot for animals, especially dogs.
- Pawssion Project started in Bacolod City, where I was born. I lived there until I was 12.
- One brave woman took action as 50 dogs were waiting on death row to be executed by gunshot. It all started from there. They currently have 2 shelters: One in Bacolod, and the other one in Bulacan.
- At present, they have close to 300 rescues, and 60 rescues during the Enhanced Community Quarantine alone! Talk about dedication!
- Lastly and most importantly, have you read the news about the woman who died trying to rescue dogs from a burning house? Pawssion Project has been helping the dogs who survived in the fire, and that includes the medical expenses of one of the dogs, Gwapa, who was severly burned and dehydrated. Check their Facebook page for more details.
We still have a month to go. With your help, we will be able to raise funds for them. Any amount would be appreciated and your donation will go a long way-- from maintaining the shelters with food, medicine, maintenance, feeding strays especially during community quarantine, and finding these babies a permanent and loving home. #AdoptDontShop
Thank you in advance and always take care!
Also accepting donations through GCash, PayMaya, or bank transfer to Metrobank or East West Bank.
