If you were one of hundreds of Marketmanila.com readers who read this post on The Little Brown Book and quickly called Mae over at the school to reserve your copies, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you. According to Mae, within a few days of that post, MM readers ordered a whopping 650 Little Brown Books by text. And gosh, are you among the lucky ones! The 4,000 copies are now SOLD OUT, and Mae has STOPPED accepting orders from MM readers. So please, if you have placed an order, remember to pick it up when they give you the go signal. This agenda will be a highly sought after present this holiday season, and you can’t buy it anywhere else. Now I am just a little bit surprised that only 350 or so shirts and totes have been picked up so far, leaving nearly 200 more as of this writing. I guess I have to do another 1 or 2 pick-up points and hope that readers who had previously indicated they wanted shirts and totes will be able to make it then… So far, The School Feeding Program has raised about PHP170,000 and I would like to keep it going until I get to about PHP220,000-250,000… so stay tuned for further distribution announcements in the weeks ahead. Again, thank you to all the readers for your generosity towards all of these charitable causes, between the books and the school feeding program, readers of this site have generated almost PHP400,000 towards various causes in the past week or two alone! Now THAT IS INDEED SOMETHING we can all be incredibly thrilled to be a part of! THIS IS A VERY NICE HINT of the TRUE SPIRIT of CHRISTMAS! Maraming Salamat!
