The Christmas season is the most profitable time of the year for us and I'm glad to announce that in the Spirit of the season, we will be donating 10% of all profits from Black Friday to Christmas Eve.
The charity we are supporting is HERE It's a poverty ending organization based in the Philippines called Gawad Kalinga.
Only a short flight from Taiwan, the Philippines is a land of beautiful beaches, friendly people, wonderful music and, unfortunately, grinding poverty.
My wife, Chia, and I were glad to get the chance to visit the amazing island of Boracay in the Philippines a while back. On our way, we spent a couple of days in Manila, the capitol city of the Philippines.
We ventured a bit from the tourist area where our hotel was and came across a little girl of maybe four years old begging outside of a restaurant. She was not clean, it was getting dark. I looked around for her mother but there were no adults around. She looked soooo vulnerable and I was deeply moved. I did what I could at the time but poverty is a terrible thing. I promised myself that I would do something in the future and that time is now, and probably every year hereafter.
Gawad Kalinga has a hunger fighting arm. They serve nutritious meals to needy children of the Philippines. We will be donating to this purpose within their organization.
Thanks for your support this holiday season!
