Any prize that remains unclaimed by end of November 2011 will remain for distribution but winners who fail to claim their prize will be replaced. Replacement winners will be chosen from the same batch of followers at the time of raffle.


To show appreciation of our increasing followers, CGF is going to conduct year-end Follower Appreciation Contest for the month of November. All names of Facebook and Twitter followers will be included on the raffle until 5 minutes before the drawing begins. Video of this contest will be posted.

Please note this date and time – Saturday November 5, 2011 at 3:00pm Manila time (i.e. 3am EST November 5, 2011 in the US)

Grand winners (1 winner for USA and 1 winner for Philippines) – will receive Flip HD Camera

30 winners will receive portfolio bags for distribution in December. Since this needs to be hand-carried in to the US, distribution is by end of November when one of our board returns to US from Philippines. Color: Black. There will be other goodies that will be included as a surprise so just wait for it in the mail.

If you win, our representative will contact you directly to ask for your mailing address. Make sure to send only your current address so that the package arrives safely.

Thank you for your support! If you have any suggestion/comment please complete our form by sending them in for consideration.

Want to become part of the change? Take our poll and be heard how you want to change the community.

More people arriving, simple office blessing this coming Wednesday. A humble place generously donated by MBL Holdings. Few board members are spending weekend at a resort generously donated by Au Management.  Simple beginning full of team members that are focused on the task at hand. We are truly blessed!

Thank You Voters

CGF would like to thank those who sent in their vote.

Top requests are:

  • Starving Student Supports

We will put those requests on priority.

Please continue to stay in touch and keep letting others know how they want us to serve the community!

Those MinoHD 4 GB 1-hour high-definition video camera  is the most amazing video camera ever! No attachments, crisp clear videos, easy download and sharing. Whoever invented this thought of convenience and quality. Very straight forward and light weight. Just flip the USB connection for charging and file download. Everyone who got it from our last event wants more.  Everyone that see it function wants one. It makes our reporting so convenient. Thanks, Cisco!

Update – Manila opening

Preparation of Manila office opening in 6 days going well. Space & furnitures generously donated by AuMSI. We were selecting materials for the baby room (simulation testing) earlier. Government partnering with us to spread the curriculum programs nationwide. Community wish list being presented for our project consideration (even our own staff has long list they want to do to help). More and more people are walking-in coming forward to join. In spite of our many challenges in the past, things continue to improve beyond our own imagination with so many people supporting our cause. We are truly blessed!
