It seem rather daunting to find out that while we go about in our day-to-day activities, complaining only of too much summer heat and being bored out of our wits now that it is summer and we have not decided on which summer classes or activities to enroll our kids or ourselves, that most of the victims of Typhoon Pablo {Bopha} in Mindanao are still trying to put their lives back together after the devastation and the grave loss. Many families where relocated from their houses that were washed away by the flood and students cannot have proper classes after the typhoon destroyed most of their schools and school stuff.

Ten Moves in a nutshell

mum for a cause, fundraising

TEN Movesa part of the Bayanihang Pampaaralan and managed by the Ayala Foundation and the Philippine Business for Social progress,  is a campaign to raise money to build 10,000 classrooms in the Philippines as the response to classroom shortages. The campaign, TEN Moves, an acronym for The Entire Nation Moves, appeals and encourages every Filipino to do their share and aims to gather our whole country of 2 million people to donate what they can to the movement by starting with Php10 each day for 10 months or donating directly to the campaign in larger sums or any amount anyone wishes to donate.

Typhoon Pablo

mumwrites 10moves

We are all aware of the damage and devastation that typhoon Pablo left in Mindanao, destroying schools and towns in its wakes. Ten Moves prioritized their fundraising efforts and shall be putting all donations made today until June 30 to directly fund rebuilding schools in Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley.

iGive.ph/TenMoves

Ten Moves is partnering with iGive.ph, an online fundraiser and are asking individuals and/or groups to create a fundraising page to help raise funds or donate directly online. True, not everyone can raise 600,000, which is the cost of building one classroom, but collectively we can all lend a hand in making this noble vision a reality.
