Event outcome: 2 houses funded!
We would like to congratulate and thank each and every one of you for taking part in our 2nd fundraiser, Apéro for Love. As one family, we have succeeded in raising enough funds to build 2 homes for the survivors affected by typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in the Philippines through our main beneficiary, Gawad Kalinga!
This event is what we had exactly envisioned: a celebration with our Filipino, French and foreign friends, old and new, feasting on good food and music while raising AID for our kababayans! We hope you remain on this ongoing journey with PFTP as we continue to work towards our double mission of promoting a cultural and social exchange between our two homes, Paris and the Philippines, while building hope and homes for our motherland.
Again, thank you, maraming salamat and merci beaucoup to all our donors, volunteers and guests!
We asked some of our guests to name what they LOVE about the Philippines. Check out what the people in Paris have to say...
