Hello, I am a seventeen year old girl who lives in the United States. I have a best friend who lives in the Philippines. She and her family struggle with financial issues. Her mother works abroad and her older twin sister has a job, as well. Still, even two members of the family being employed doesn't earn much income for their huge household. For you, this probably doesn't sound so bad. But since her family has been poor for years, she also didn't have a very great childhood. Her family has dealt with so much.
Knowing this, I feel empathy for them because they don't deserve the struggles of lack of food, water, and other daily essentials. Immediately, I wanted to help them, especially since I'm gifted to be in a family who has a good income. Knowing they don't makes me feel powerless. However, I don't have to be.
I created this campaign to attempt to raise money for them. With your help, I hope to succeed in raising the specific amount of money before the deadline. Please consider donating, even if it's a bit of money. Every little thing counts. Thank you.
