Sunshine Sundays, for our
60 Sunshine Families!

We are very happy to report that we have successfully helped 60 families for a total of 45 weeks. Emergency relief was given from March until June 2020. This was followed by our rice and milk drive from July 2020 up to the present.


This year, our new campaign SUNSHINE SUNDAYS aims to encourage more people to join in our caring community, because there is room to give a little more!


HOW CAN YOU HELP?


In Cash. You can be a monthly donor of at least P500. The cash donations are for the purchase of rice and milk. Additional funds will allow us to add other essentials (some are listed below). This has taken the place of our Daily Lunch Packs which we normally provide during school days.


In KIND. SUNSHINE SUNDAYS invite those who can add “60 of Anything” to our “packaged blessings” which we usually distribute during weekends. Suggested items you can donate:

FOOD FOR THE MIND


'BASA PASA, BIYAYA'T PAG-ASA' was launched to enhance the children's reading abilities. Art and craft supplies are provided to develop the kids' creativity, discover their talents, and to build their confidence. When school begins at a later date, our children are prepared, motivated, and ready to take the challenges ahead of them! 

FOOD FOR THE BODY


Our FEEDING PROGRAM will provide RICE and MILK periodically for the children. We care about their nutritional growth and health, and this is our way of adding healthy food on their tables.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Sunshine Club Updates

We also welcome volunteers who can share their time and talents through various social media platforms. 


Monthly, Bi-Monthly, Occasionally or on Special Days ....as a family or with a group of friends.... let’s share our blessings!


Our giving is not a “dole-out”; it is TO ACCOMPANY A CHILD, A FRIEND, in a time when help is needed most. Let’s bring joy, offer hope and spread little miracles.


EVERY LITTLE BIT, WHEN PUT TOGETHER, ADDS UP TO MUCH. NOTHING IS TOO SMALL WHEN IT COMES FROM THE HEART!

On 14 March 2020, the children received a gift that speaks of joy, hope, and  love. A donor has kindly donated 'books' to our kids. These are not an 'just  books', it is a book authored by our founder, Nini Veloso.


The book is for sale at 150.00 php a copy (proceeds of sales will be donated to the club to procure donations for the children and their families). To get your copy, please send us an email.


With another national lockdown in our midst, we need to brace ourselves for more challenges ahead. We survived the first wave last year. Let's stay together; together is stronger. With God on our side, we will succeed in our mission to take care of our kids, their families, and their future.

Let's bring some Sunshine to 60 Families!
Every little bit, when put together, adds up to much. Nothing is too small when it comes from the heart.

FOOD FOR THE SOUL


As a continuing effort towards values formation, we will bring meaningful stories through various materials to the children and their mothers. We care to bring goodness, hope and joy, specially during these trying times.


PASKO!

First of all, our apologies for the late publication of the club's events since October. The lifting of restrictions have brought back pre-Covid 'madness' to our founder and our website editor. Commitments, work, and family gatherings have kept our lives busy once again. The good news is, the website is updated. Do browse through and enjoy!

malamig and simoy ng hangin....

Year after year, since 2006, Sunshine Club brought light and joy to the 60 families of our Sunshine kids as we celebrated Christmas. The generosity of our donors are boundless, the difference they make in our children lives is priceless. We continue our work as a community, as we actively take part in supporting our cause. We would not have been able to achieve what we have achieved if not for the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and donors. To all of you, our heart-felt 'thank you' and have a joyful and blessed Christmas.

November 

November was another busy months as school opened and activities have resumed. There were interactions with classes with other schools, a 'zumba' party (yes, you read it right - a 'zumba' party!) with Tito Wilson and guests, Titas Tricia & Cha, Ate Raia, and daddy Bobby.  'Basa-Pasa' books were delivered by Tito Ron & Tita Jane, and an online meeting with moms and Ate Ophine as guest took place. And, there were veggies from Ateneo Center for Educational Development and more veggies from our titas in Baguio!

October 

The new school year (SY 2022-2023) for Kalayaan Elementary School, Pasay, officially began in September.. Sunshine Club was very fortunate during the summer vacation (June – August), as the club continued to give bi-weekly food packages. Thanks to our generous donors who sent their help even during our official “break”.


This school year is particularly special because it marks the return of our children to their campus after over 2 years of schooling from home, due to Covid-19. Face-to-face learning resumed partially and would be fully enforced this November. It is indeed a blessing to realize that the Club did not fail its beneficiaries, and accompanied 60 families no less, during such a trying period of isolation.


What can we look forward to?


After successfully organizing in-person activities in May 2022, we are now ready to resume monthly activities with the children. The mothers, however, will still meet online. The Club will work on organizing regular face-to-face meetings in the months to come while practicing proper protocols. Every ounce of effort will be given to make sure we stage a Christmas Party for the children.
