Hello Kababayans and friends!
We opened PINAY BOUTIQUE, an online and pop-up clothing store in 2017. We sell Philippine wardrobe and accessories with a unique multi focus and mission to preserve and promote Filipino cultural heritage of those Filipinos living abroad; fund educational scholarships to locals in the Philippines; and to conduct outreach program to the needy children of the Philippines.
Todate, we have two scholars funded partially from proceeds of this store. Rona and Ryzy de Villa are attending elementary and middle school in Hope Christian School located in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. They are A’s students and we are proud foster parents to them. We are blessed that we can pay for their school tuition, fees, and supplies, medical, clothing, and other miscellaneous expenses.
For four years now, we conducted annual outreach programs in the Philippines. In 2015, we started our gift-giving to 400 elementary school children in San Manuel where each kid was given a Christmas pack containing sandwich, egg, candies and a drink. In 2016, we fed rice soup and sandwiches and gave clothing to 500 children from Bubusawin community in Palawan. In 2017, we distributed 2000 pairs of shoes and fed elementary school children in remote areas in Aborlan, Palawan. This year, we are going to distribute 2000 packs of school supplies to elementary schools of needy children. These were made possible through joint effort by Pinay Boutique funds, Villa de Sierra Vista, Rotary Club, Ortega Family, Makabayan Georgia, Inc., Atlanta Pinoys and other volunteers. You may also join our efforts by donating to our cause through Rotary Club of Emory Clifton or by buying some items from this store.
We thank you for your patronage! Mabuhay ang mga PILIPINO!!
