I received an e-mail today from friends Kevin & Jessie Roberts whom I met on the following link http://www.thephils.com/forums/ to inform me that they had sent a Balikbayan Box to Bethany with supplies for the children consisting of clothes, toys and non prescription medication.
Kevin and Jessie live in the USA, however Jessie is originally from Bukidnon.
Once again folks a big thankyou from everyone at Bethany for your kindness and generosity.
A couple of months ago we were discussing CHRISTMAS, the joys, headaches, commercialism and all. We sent a "CHRISTMAS BOX" to Bethany Childrens Home. They received it, took some pics the first day and wrote us a very nice THANK YOU letter. 2 of the pics show the kids sitting around the box we sent. This made my MONTH complete! I HATE to be scammed anytime, but esp. during Christmas....A BIG "THANK YOU" goes to Jim for putting us in touch with the Real Deal. NOW THAT'S CHRISTMAS! -Mabuhay--Kevin
