All Aboard With Blogger

We've had a blog for quite a while now but we've just switched to using Blogger for more functionality and to reach a bigger audience. So if this is the first time you've come across us, welcome!
We're a UK based Christian Charity comitted to helping people in the Philippines escape from the trap of poverty. We believe in giving a hand-up and not a hand-out. As someone once said "If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. But if you give him a net you can feed him for life". That's exactly what we are about -providing tools, equipment, training and education to give people the power to change their own lives.
The population of the Philippines is around 80 million and around half of these people live in poverty (officially defined by the Philipine Government as having less than 47 pesos a day, about £0.60 per person, to live on). We know that we can't help all these people but, with your help, we can make a real difference for some of them.
So how can you help? There are lots of ways. For a start please subscribe to this blog and share it with your friends. We have a Facebook group too. Post a link on your own website, blog or social network page - that way we will get more traffic coming here.
You could join our child sponsorship program - more information on our website
You could make a donation - there's a Paypal button on the left.
Or you could organise your own fund-raising event on our behalf. We are currently putting together a resource library of Powerpoint presentations and photographs and will post details here when they are available.
And, if you shop online in the UK you could try using the Easy Fundraising shopping portal. There you will find hundreds of big name retailers, insurance companies and service providers all of whom will make us a donation when you buy online through Easy Fundraising - and it doesn't cost you a penny!
