The restaurant Mamou, at Serendra in Fort Bonifacio turns two on Tuesday, 21 July 2009. And to celebrate this milestone, they have again pledged to donate ALL OF THE REVENUES (excluding VAT) from their restaurant on that day to the Marketmanila.com feeding program at the Tenement Elementary School in Taguig, Metro Manila. The wonderful staff at this restaurant have also PLEDGED ALL OF THEIR SERVICE CHARGE EARNINGS to the feeding program as well. Last year, when the owners of Mamou contacted me with their plan to help the feeding program, I was amazed by their generosity and impressed by their desire to do it quietly, without fanfare. The post I did about the anniversary last year was for selfish reasons… the more folks who ate at the restaurant that day, the more meals could be provided for the malnourished elementary school children in the public school feeding programs! All told, last year’s gift resulted in some 4,000 full meals for the kids. Thus far, marketmanila and its donors have provided some 45,000 meals for the kids, and by year-end expect to top 60,000 meals total. This was all made possible by wonderful individual donors (readers) from all over the world, and of course with the incredible help of Mamou and their staff.
It’s all so very simple. All you have to do is eat at Mamou on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 either at lunch or dinner. All revenues (except tax) and all service charges will be donated in FULL to the feeding program. This isn’t a portion of profits, or a part of sales, this includes all revenues from your meal(s) there. Essentially, Mamou is donating all of the food, staff costs, overheads, etc. You guys get a great meal, and you help feed some students who truly need it most. Also, as I have mentioned before, 100% of all donations for the feeding programs go directly to the schools, and not a single centavo goes to administration, overheads, etc. Marketmanila.com underwrites all costs associated with raising, collecting and distributing the funds.
It really doesn’t get much easier than this. Enjoy a wonderful meal with family and friends and in the process help feed malnourished school children. Please reserve your table early and if the two dinner seatings are full, you may want to consider grabbing lunch there instead. :) For reservations, please contact :

Thank you, Mamou.
