It's been more than 2 months since KAPISANAN held their own awesome lantern (parol) making workshop, Parol Paaralan. As an event for Round 2: Home for Christmas, the second round of typhoon relief efforts for the Philippines, KAPISANAN welcomed a whole lot of people and let them get creative with their parols.
Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy, support and check out KAPISANAN's Parol Paaralan. We would also like to thank our food sponsors; cloud9ne, Aspetta, and Sana's Kitchen for providing our event with their delicious treats, snacks, and goods. And of course, thank you to everyone who supported, donated, and expressed their interest in HFC.
Home for Christmas will be donating the money raised from the fundraiser and Parol Paaralan to CRC (Children's Rehabilitation Center) in the Philippines. CRC is a non-profit, non-government institution helping children and families who are victims of state violence in the Philippines. CRC will be using the money that KAPISANAN has raised to rebuild centres that were damaged and lost because of typhoons Ketsana and Parma. They will also continue providing help to those deeply affected by the typhoons in more ways than one.
The workshop netted $283.25, a small amount that will go a long way.
