    • The Department of Education (DepEd), through the Center for Students and Co-Curricular Affairs (DepEd-CSCA) is soliciting toys, books and other educational materials and supplies for the resumption of classes in Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City this January.
    • In December 2011, Typhoon Sendong left the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan with damaged school buildings, wet books, and empty libraries. DepEd-CSCA believes that whatever donations will be gathered from kindhearted individuals and organizations will help encourage kids to attend school and to help them recover from the trauma they have suffered.
    • This initiative is anchored on The Kindergarten Advocacy and Donation Project of DepEd-CSCA following the implementation of the Universal Kindergarten Program by DepEd Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC in connection with the K to 12 Basic Education Program.
    • For queries and coordination, please look for DepEd-CSCA Executive Director Joey G. Pelaez at the DepEd Central Office, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City, with telephone numbers (02) 636-3603 or (02) 631-8495 or visit the DepEd-CSCA Facebook Fan Page at www.facebook.com/csca.deped

Collated Tweets: On Events, Concerts and Fundraisers

Here’s a compilation of recent tweets and retweets on events, concerts and fundraisers. Let us all join forces and help one another begin again. Kaya natin ‘to! :)


  1. Auction for Action. We are inviting you to join us in an online auction in order to raise funds for their future. For those interested to donate or bid, the information can be found in our our website. Also follow us on @Auction4Action, visit us on Facebook or send us an e-mail: Auction4Action@ymail.com. [via Pika Yonzon]
  2. Shop and Share. FYI: http://shopandshare.ph/ – courtesy by @annecurtissmith all proceeds will be given to the victims of Bagyong Ondoy and Pepeng. :) [via @iameammae] [10/18 21:46]


  1. 30-31 January 2010, 3:00 PM. Padyak Para sa Binhi ng Kordi 2009. Last year a group of young adventurous Cordillerans rode 24 hours non-stop across rough mountain roads, seeking pledges for every kilometer covered in 24 hours. On November 15 and 16, 2008, they were able to cover 206 kilometers riding into the night, through the cold, heat, mud and rocks of the Cordillera mountains in just 24 hours. In the process they were able to raise enough money to reforest 5 hectares of land in Taba-ao, Kapangan Benguet and raise the awareness of the local community about the plight of the Cordillera forests. See links: 1, 2. Due to the destruction caused by recent typhoons, Padyak Para sa Binhi ng Kordi 2009 (originally set for November 14 and 15) was rescheduled to January 30, 2010 (3 pm) to January 31, 2010 (3 pm). BE PART OF THE CORDILLERA’S REFORESTATION! Follow the link for pledge mechanics: go here for more information.
    • Padyak Para sa Binhi is for the reforestation of damaged areas in Benguet. Any donation of tree seedlings (lots of these) such as coffee, narra, pine, would go a long long way. More information on that project here. Although it says on the site that they aren’t accepting seedling pledges, they are already accepting seedling donations.


  1. P1,000 for Ondoy for every purchase of “150: The Ateneo Way” book. For the month of October 2009, from every sale of the coffee table book “150: The Ateneo Way” by Fr. Arcilla, P1,000 will be donated by the publisher, Mediawise Communications, Inc., to Ateneo Task Force Ondoy to benefit those affected by the typhoon. The book costs P4,500 each and is available at the Office of University Development & Alumni Relations, Loyola Schools Bookstore, Jesuit Communications, Fully Booked and MagNet. It can also be purchased online at www.mediawise.ph.
  2. A Nation of Heroes. A Nation of Heroes is a book writing project, the output of which is a collection of 50 stories of heroism (including profiles of the heroes) during and after the typhoons Ondoy, Pepeng, etc. The stories will be written by college students and young professionals. The public will be part of the search for stories as they will be asked to share heroic deeds they have witnessed or have heard of, during the calamity. A panel will choose the stories that will be included. Read more, visit us at http://anationofheroes.wordpress.com/ The project aims to:
    • Promote awareness among the readers about the extraordinary acts of ordinary Filipinos shown during and after the recent typhoons;
    • Inspire the readers to live a life of courage and selflessness;
    • Provide training and mentoring to young writers on development journalism; and
    • Raise P 500,000 for livelihood programs (long term support) of selected families in Laguna directly affected by the typhoons, in partnership with Alliance of Philippine Partners for Enterprise Development (APPEND).
