I Am…

The typhoons that struck the Philippines earlier this year were devastating, and so many survivors are having to start life anew, with very little or nothing from their past. The I AM Foundation is teaming with other partners in San Diego (the Lion’s Club and Aero Financial) to gift educational books and school supplies to thousands of  kids, families, and schools in the Philippines.

In addition to books, the groups are also mounting a “Medical, Optical, Dental, Education, Rehabilitation, Nutrition and Other Services (M.O.D.E.R.N.O.) mission to the Philippines” departing January 17, 2010. The San Diego Classic Lions Club Team is scheduled to go to 5 sites in the Philippines: Kalayaan in Laguna, Bayambang in Pangasinan, Tabaco in Albay (where the landslide took place), Abucay in Bataan, Olongapo City in Olongapo and Zambales Province. To donate to the fundraising efforts to collect medicines, eyeglasses, dental supplies, and school supplies, visit the Lions website here.
