Charitable…


I always love to give from very young, I think I got this from my mother (God rest her soul).  I love to contribute to great cause and I try to donate my time or my money if possible.  I love to recruit people or brands to donate necessary items to those in need.  God only knows if I ever hit the lottery, if would donate a good amount to the following


Maya’s Hope Project- strives to send aid and hope to children throughout the world. Our main focus is to send medicines, clothing, books and other basic necessities to orphanages in great need, with a current focus on orphanages in the Philippines and Ukraine.

Philippines: Bethlehem House of Bread, San Martin de Porres and Hospicio de San Jose orphanages.

Ukraine: Donetsk Home for Children and Ternopil Psychiatric Children's Home.

You can get involved by volunteering your time, contacting companies for donations, helping get donations which would be for shipping costs. This is truly a labor of love to show these children how each one of them is truly important.

My personal favorite is
Operation letter to Santa- This program is held in December every year.  Here is a little history behind the program
Operation Santa Claus began informally in the early 1920s, when New York postal clerks began chipping in their own money to buy gifts for poor kids whose notes to Santa ended up in the dead-letter office. As the number of letters grew, the clerks asked for help from the public. The program’s most dramatic growth has come in the last two decades. In 1980, there were about 5,000 letters to Santa from needy kids received at the New York Post Office. This year the total will almost certainly be more than 150,000, and could approach 200,000.
Many of the kids are not even asking for gifts for themselves but for their family.  Wonderful program because it represents the spirit of the season.
