Tonight, all roads will lead to BookSail's event -- Plates for Books! :)
Some 70+ awesome people (ahem! ^_^) will be meeting up tonight, February 23, 7p.m., at St. Honore Clubhouse in Quezon City, for a benefit dinner for the 333 schoolchildren from Palumbanes Island in Caramoran, Catanduanes. All the proceeds will be used to purchase books and school material for the kids. :)
There'll be food, music, and a lot of sharing of ideas for the cause. I'm super excited, and I can't wait to meet everyone!
How to get to the venue:
a.) If you're taking the MRT, stop at GMA Kamuning Station. Walk a few steps along EDSA Southbound. Follow the red trail as shown in the satellite image below. Take the first turn left before the Shell gas station. It will be at held at Sct. Borromeo cor. Samar Ave.
If you're riding a car coming from the North, you could easily turn right to Scout Borromeo from EDSA southbound and follow the blue trail. If you're coming from the South, take a U-Turn near GMA7 then turn right to Timog Ave. and follow the yellow trail. :)
Important to know:
a.) Look for Kiks at the entrance and present your ticket (if you already got one) or purchase it for only P350. This will entitle you to enter the venue (of course, hehe) and enjoy the buffet dinner (yehey!). Then take your respective seat, feel the crowd, enjoy the food and the music! :))
b. ) If you want to donate new or used books and school materials, we'll be setting up a space for it at the venue. Hope you could bring some! :))
What to donate:
Story and picture books (English and Filipino)
Elementary books (Math, Science, English, Filipino)
Science laboratory materials
School kits - pad papers, pencils, crayons, etc
c. ) There'll be no dress code. Come as you are. :))
d.) This activity is encouraging sharing of ideas about literacy. If you've got one, please don't hesitate to come up the stage and share it to the group. :))
