Helping Philippines Disaster Victims The Right Way

Often times you hear people asking for help to disaster victims but most of the time it leaves donors wondering if the goods actually reached the people. Many of those who are seeking for donations have several layers before it get to the people. Stop the bad experience. Send donations to those who give the goods directly to the people. See below for options.

  • To send goods directly at low risk to Volunteers, consider sending it directly to DSWD a government office who can receive goods. They will add your donated goods to those that are being distributed by them. They put items in plastic bags and then give it out to the people directly. Delivery receipt is your only receipt.For Bohol and Cebu area send to the address below. This is the closest location to the major disaster.

Help for earthquake victims in the Philippines

We are going to send some help to the Cebu/Bohol Philippines earthquake victims.  Details on where distribution will happen will be posted once the ocean shipment arrives.

Community giving continues

CGF reps are going to a homeless shelter of people with illness today to give out donated goods from Regis Salons.

We believe that giving does not always have to mean exposing people who are disadvantaged just to be recognized of doing good deeds. Therefore, no photos will be posted for public viewing to protect privacy of the people but we will have something to present to donor as part of reporting.

Two more giving will take place this month to complete distribution of all goods received. Thank you for following us and for taking the time to read this post.

Message to Magazine Readers

As part of CGF’s role as a resource center, the magazine was published to allow grantors to be able to have legitimate source of data when considering funding they are passionate about. Since we still have plenty of nonprofits awaiting further assistance, we will not be publishing any new editions until most of them are funded by grantors.  Publishing these magazines do take some effort, time and money which we are currently short of so we will focus on important matters that are in need of attention now so we can begin to see some of the projects become available to the community.
