Next weekend we will be hosting our 5th Children’s Fair of 2014 and our first adventure in Calauan, Laguna! The community we will be spending time with represent hundreds of families relocated by 2009’s Typhoon Ondoy/Ketsana, and 2013’s Supertyphoon Yolanda/Haiyan. This same community was also hit hard by the recent storm Glenda, which brought damage to their homes, power outtages and food shortage.
In less than two weeks we will also be hosting our eighth annual Children’s Fair at the San Lazaro Hospital, Manila, and the fourth fair of the year. Below are some ways you can get involved:
We still have some room for volunteers for our upcoming Children’s Fair in Manila on July 12 with 100 children. Volunteers need to be able to commit 7am-3pm on the day of the event. We will provide light breakfast, snacks and lunch.
If you are interested, please email email@example.com. All volunteers must confirm attendance by Friday, July 4th, and will later receive an orientation.

PRAY with us
The Children’s Fair is a fantastic opportunity to share the joy and hope of Jesus with children living in the midst of different challenging situations – chronic/terminal illness, extreme poverty, abuse, or abandonment. Pray that their hearts begin to open, ready to receive the love of God, shared through us.

Buhay Makulay has got some awesome friends in Singapore! Have you guys heard of Alphabetype?
Alphabetype describes themselves as, “The playful side of type, Alphabetype started as a series of experiments with type and graphic design, constantly on the lookout for obsessively fun ways to share and spread the love of typography.”
We are so excited about our collaboration. Big thank you to all the Manila-based Alphabetype-rs who supported their first run of tees. The proceeds went to our Children’s Fair in Leyte last May 16.
