Greedy gets some new clothes
Greedy recently showed up to eat wearing his brothers school uniform shorts, This reminded me
we never got him any clothes. When Pineapple man and Pam asked me to buy the Rogondola
children school uniforms they also asked me to buy Greedy some clothes so he would not feel left
out. At the time and place we bought the uniforms there were no clothes his size. Seeing him in his
brothers shorts was a reminder he needs some clothes

We got Greedy a Lakers jersey top and matching shorts plus a superman and sponge bob shirt. They did not have any
him some more shorts. The cost of the jersey and shorts was 100p and the shirts were 50p each for a total 200p
While talking to Vangie, the Sampaguita Bukid homeowner’s association president I discovered there was a big interest
in volleyball. Someone ended up with a volleyball and children and adults alike started playing. However they don’t
have a net but still they hit it back and forth. A volleyball net seemed like a great community purchase that could be
used by many of the residents. There is good spot to set it up near the basketball court. I was able to purchase a good
quality net complete with steel cables on the side to attach it to poles. The cost was 750p ($18.29). The net is expected
to be set up this Saturday and we will get some pictures once it is set up.
This net was bought by TB0817

I also added a picture of TB0817. (blocked his face out a little for the website) This adds a personal touch and lets people
here know who the sponsors are that help. I wrote his name on the back and it amazes me how much people here are
interested in the sponsors. They asked many questions about TB0817 and I shared some things about him. It was funny
because later in the night when other people came up and looked at the net and the picture they would ask questions and the
people there would answer before I could. They know he bought a sack of rice for the feeding program and was one of the 3
sponsors who paid for the materials of the house we are building. The people pay close attention to the stories and names of
the sponsors because it gives them clout and makes them feel like they know the sponsor. It is almost like being around
someone important and being able to say “I know that person” That is how they feel here and it makes them feel special to
know that other people in America who never met them care enough to help.

After the first half of the school year those numbers will be switched as the children who attend school in the morning will go in
the afternoon and the afternoon children will go to school in the mornings.

This week we served 98 meals at a cost of $22.17 for a cost of 22.6 cents per meal. This is not the actual cost because some
days we serve rice. The rice for the feeding program was bought by Ed Faught and TB0817. Also the gas for the stove,
electric for the rice cooker, rent for the Action Center would add to the actual price. Steve McCrossin pays for the Action
Center bills  but even if you factored everything in it still remains cost effective for what it provides the children.
The cost of $22.17 for the food ingredients is divided between the following 10 sponsors
For a cost of $ 2.22 each
Steve McCrossin, TB0817, Ed Faught ,Dave Belanger ,Flor Penner , Pineapple man and Pam ,Aaron McAfee ,Anonymous
