19 Jul2012

Don’t forget, this Saturday at either Mamou Serendra or Mamou too! Rockwell is their 5th and 1st anniversaries, respectively! The management of Mamou is generously donating all proceeds (net of VAT) for lunch and dinner at both outlets to the Marketmanila.com feeding programs for malnourished public school children at schools in Taguig and Cebu City. All you have to do is eat at Mamou, and the proceeds of your meal and staff service charges will go to providing nutritionally complete meals to the students. It’s that simple. And each table will get a little packet of Zubuchon’s chicharon as a small token and thank you from me and the crew, while supplies last. A huge thank you to Mamou for this fifth year of generous support for the feeding programs!

I rarely ask anything from readers of this blog, but if you were intending to eat out this weekend in Manila any way, why not join us at Mamou and have your entire bill (net of VAT) but including service charges go to charity? If you order one Diet Coke, you feed three full meals for an undernourished grade school student! Great food, and you do a good deed. It’s a winner of a deal! Plus Marketman will throw in a small pack of Zubuchon chicharon for every table that dines at Mamou on Saturday, while supplies last. Please make reservations early as the restaurants tend to max out sooner rather than later… Salamat!

    Been reading your blog for more than a year so as a way of saying thank you, we went to Mamou and ordered the dry aged bone in rib eye, the prime rib eye, lamb tapa and duck flakes…. Yum yum.

    Yumyum, thank you very much… the kids are truly grateful for everyone’s support! The order sounds like a meat lover’s delight! I love their duck flakes and steaks. Getting ready to head over now for dinner. :)

    do you accept donations in paypal? ^_^

    Faust et al… unfortunately I don’t. Many folks have asked if they can give cash donations… unfortunately, I cannot accept direct donations… from a strict tax perspective. Cheques are made out directly to beneficiaries so that there is no tax liability nor questions about how the funds get to the beneficiaries… It’s a bit complicated, but one would have to set up a foundation first and get it approved by BIR to do that and it isn’t a large enough undertaking to do that. So for now, the rules stifle the extent of the charitable acts… But I do encourage readers to help in any way they can… checking with your local school districts if there are similar programs that you can donate to directly. With recent news confirming that 30-40% of kids 5 years old or younger being “stunted” or being malnourished, it’s a real concern for the next generation. When you get insufficient amount and quality of food at an early age, the damage is done, and apparently nearly irreparable later in life. :(
