Here’s Where You Can Donate Your Old School Supplies
You’re invited to Nuffnang Philippines’ very first Nuffie Day! On July 27, Nuffnang will be holding a volunteering event in partnership with Time Please and Globe Telecom that aims to help the Aeta community in Rodriguez, Rizal by providing them with school supplies.
This volunteering idea stems from the Wonder Box program that was launched by Globe. Back in 2017, Wonder Box reached out to families encouraging them to fill a box with a few special gifts and school supplies. These boxes would then be given to the children of our fallen soldiers. It was an activity that also inspired families to do a simple volunteering activity together at home with the things that they already had – a shoebox, some pencils, and paper. Volunteerism comes in all shapes and sizes.
For 2018, Time Please has partnered with Aral Pinoy, a non-profit organization based in Manila that frequents Aeta communities in the Philippines. They work closely with the rural poor and regularly reaches out to local communities, their own partner organizations, educational institutions, and local governments.
For this first Nuffie Day, Nuffnang will be helping Aral Pinoy provide for the Aeta community in Rodriguez, Rizal by repackaging school supplies. Be prepared for a bunch of arts and crafts and an amazing time with your fellow bloggers and the Nuffies!
