20140608-204858.jpgI attended a fundraising event today benefitting Bantay Bata 163, which rescues abused (in every way) children, provide them with healing and psychological support, and provide assistance to any children in need, in the Philippines.

The event also celebrated the Independence Day of the Philippines. The silent auction with art from various Filipino artists, including Paolo Mejia, were on display, and a performance art and reading by celebrated Poet, Writer, and Educator, Oscar Peñaranda.

It was an incredible event providing a glimpse of the past of the Philippines through various wars, as well as a way to raise money to help the children.

I was grateful to attend to help in some way. Anything for the children!
