Making waves of love & inspiration, the 2nd time around
The Street Store popped up once again at Lagro Elementary School on February 9, 2019 to help out indigent students and their parents. The day was perfect to a tee! The donations were just right for the shoppers, 30 volunteers showed up to do the hard work, the weather was nice and sunny! 💖
All in all, we distributed over 3,500 items that we collected at The Good Trade to over 500 shoppers. It was a light, cheerful morning packed with inspiration and love. This has to be one of the best Street Stores yet! ✨
High fives to everyone who helped out, especially to Data Spring for being one of our partners in this event.
A heartfelt thank you
We would love to thank the organizers, the volunteers and all the donors for helping out the homeless community with so much love. Taking the time out of your day to help others is one of the most special things that you can do. We hope to see more Street Stores in the Philippines soon!
This pop-up at Fairview was nothing short of amazing. It left me feeling so inspired that it served as a much needed reminder of why I do what I do. These kinds of moments are everything and I'm happy to have you on this journey with us. Thank you muchos muchos muchos!
HANG UP HELP OUT
What The Street Store donors & volunteers are saying
I love the idea of the Street Store where people get a chance to choose what they need without having to shell out cash. At the same time, be able to put unused, good quality items to use again. I learned about this initiative online made me want to be a part of it. :)
My heart was so full seeing the shoppers find joy in items that were donated. It shows that what we really can "Create Good when we do more with what we have."
Volunteering gives so much joy in my heart. It's my way of showing my love and care to the world.
