Thinking Pinoy readers are used to seeing a PayPal donation button at the end of each ThinkingPinoy.net article. However, I have decided to remove that button and replace it with a donation button for a charitable organization.
While ThinkingPinoy is mostly a political blog, I prefer to give to apolitical institutions that serve apolitical purposes. Specifically, I wish to hand over the donations to institutions like orphanages, elderly homes, disadvantaged children or institutions that help people with sicknesses and disabilities.
Here's the plan: each time the donations reach $1,000 (about Php 50,000), I will hand the amount over to a charity of my choice, provided that the said charity falls under the abovementioned categories.
I do not want to give all donations to just a single charity because I do not want to risk their over-reliance on it, especially since donations to TP are quite unpredictable.
I shall put up announcements on the Thinking Pinoy facebook page each time I hand over donations.
If you are a qualifying SEC-registered charity organization that needs a little financial help, please let me know by emailing [email protected]
