Fund a Feast: Noche Buena 2016
It’s beginning to look, a lot, like Christmas here in the North East, United States. The Thanksgiving season has come and gone, and we are now ramping up our shopping and baking as Christmas is right around the corner.
However, let us not forget to look beyond ourselves, and those closest to us this Christmas, and remember to send blessings to those that could use them this Christmas Season!
If you remember, last year we were able to raise over $2,000 to provide a Christmas Meal for over 200 families throughout Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. This year we are looking to break that record and feed over 300 families throughout the Philippines by raising $3,500 dollars to bless those who are still feeling the effects of Typhoon Washi that hit the Philippine coast 5 years ago. We are also raising money to provide a Christmas party for 200 women, ladyboys and their families who feel trapped by their circumstances in the Red Light District near Manilla, Philippines.
The first part of our fundraiser will be focusing on blessing families that were devastated by Typhoon Washi in Cagayan de Oro’s Byaheng Tulong Barangay. Our goal is to raise $1,000 dollars to create 100 food baskets for 100 families in this neighborhood and give them a little extra joy during this Christmas Season! We will be partnering with the Junior Chamber International – Bai Lawanen, who will be creating and distributing the packages to the families in late December.
The second part of our fundraiser will be to raise $2,500 to provide 200 meals for a party that will be thrown to bless some women and ladyboys from the Red Light District in Manilla, Philippines. Along with the party, we will be providing them with a food basket they can take home to feed their family and friends. We are partnering with Wipe Every Tear, a ministry that does work in Red Light Districts around the world to bring Freedom, Hope, and a Future to all those who seek their aid! They will be putting on the party at one of their facilities and organizing all the events and the purchasing all the materials needed to make this Christmas a year to remember!
If the news of this event has moved you, then we at CODE Ministries invite you to donate below, so we can make these events a reality and bring some extra joy to some families in need this Christmas! Our Goal is to raise $3,500 dollars by Christmas day so we can send the money in time for these events!
