I use the money I make as a copywriter to help disadvantaged kids go to school. Maybe you'd like to donate and help them too?

If this is the first time you’re visiting my website or the first time on this page, I have been living in the Philippine western Visayas (since 2014) helping  disadvantaged kids in a small fishing community deeply affected by poverty and seasonal typhoons.

Then in mid-2015, a little boy arrived into my life quite by accident. When his father died last August (2016) leaving him orphaned, I immediately realised I needed to legally adopt him and give him a family.

I’m a freelance copywriter and blogger and use the money I earn as a professional writer to provide school supplies, lunches and uniforms to disadvantaged kids living in this small  community. My goal is to one day operate a dedicated creative learning centre for disadvantaged children as well as become Jerry’s legal mother. Maybe you would like to help me realise my dream?

Thank you

There have been so many people who have helped me out in so many different ways since I first arrived in the Philippines. A big thanks to my family (especially my parents), friends and people I have never met who helped. Thanks also to the businesses who supported the projects. Finally a big thanks to my Uncle Richard A. Ward who spends his retirement tirelessly selling stamps and family curios to fund the projects here.
