    Hi Nicole!
    We’re glad to see that you’re all keeping busy in Sagunto. Sorry for the delay in responding to your donation request, dear. We’ve been a little busy trying to calm people down after the fiesta, hehehe 🙂

    My suggestions regarding the donation request is to give a specific monetary amount for the items you need for the Valentine’s program. For example, how much for the printer toner? How much for bouquet? How much for the snacks, etc., so the donors will know what amount to send for what items you request. Once you have your itemized list with amounts needed, send it to us here so we can do a separate post. I think it’s a good idea to keep these programs for our people ta isu met la ti liwliwa ken entertainment dita ngarud. Even though there are people concerned about this and that controversy (based on unsubstantiated facts), there are still a lot of us who are not deterred with helping you kids there. No worries. We’ll do our best to help you.

    Just concentrate in making our barrio a better place to be for everyone. I’m sure you kids are doing your very best and we’re still proud of all of you youth leaders in SK & Council.
