Dearest family and friends! (and their friends whom we might also be reaching for this campaign)
It's that time of year again when I am blessed to celebrate life and take the opportunity to knock on your generous hearts. Birthdays are always filled with memories of meals together, songs and laughter, cakes and candles and of course, gifts. Celebrations and birthday traditions may look quite different given the current crisis we still face. But the heart, intention and gratitude for one's birthday will always stay close to what matters to us. For most of you reading this now, you know the drill and how I've tried to celebrate this special day - it's time forPrilla's Annual Party Box Campaign.Can you believe it? We are now on Year 5!!! 💛❤️💜💙🧡Last year, like with many of our plans, we had to adjust and we couldn't throw a party with the kids at Parian Center. But some of you still gave your support. And not only did we get to extend assistance in April last year, we were able to send merienda snacks every month. All thanks to the kind hearts near and far, including my Dad and Titas. It's amazing how abundant grace remains amidst a very challenging year for all of us.
So whether you are in Cebu, Manila, Asia or any part of the world really, I humbly ask for your support for this annual birthday project.Making a bolder commitment for my 32nd trip around the sun, the goal is to raise PHP 32,000.00. For this 5th Edition, we are supporting two partner projects:
The first and always closest partner is the Children of Cebu Foundation FOR THE KIDS AT PARIAN CENTER. We will have our Earth Day party and arts session this month and the rest of the funds will continue to provide their daily merienda for three months.
The second partner is SEED4COM to support the PAYAO PROJECT FOR THE FISHERFOLKS OF OLANGO ISLAND. We will be kicking off their year-long campaign to provide 20 payaos and tools for coastal fishing and mangrove protection.PHP 15,000 raised will be donated for one payao.
PHP 300 GIFT PLEDGE direct donation to the project. Select the option FOR THE KIDS OR FOR THE SEAS

Feel free to share this initiative to your own friends and family who might want to do it FOR THE KIDS OR FOR THE SEAS. This is not about my project really but the work on the ground and grassroots who are committed to their great cause. I believe this is an opportunity for anyone who is looking for ways to give 💯
I THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! 💜 I AM CONFIDENT THAT THIS MISSION32K ALREADY SEEMS POSSIBLE KNOWING THE INCREDIBLE PEOPLE THAT SURROUND ME. DAGHANG SALAMAT!!!
