4th Back to School Gift Giving Project by a Strong Wheeled Advocate

It's that time of the year again for Back to School Gift Giving Project. 


This project is spearheaded by a good friend of mine and a fellow Davao Blogger officer, Naprey Almario. He blogs at Behind the Rolling Chair where he talks about his advocacy to a barrier-free environment for the persons with disabilities. Some of the successful charity events he had were Children's Day (for the benefit of Balay Pasilungan, Padre Pio's Home for Children and Providence Home of St. Joseph) and Dinner for A Cause (for the benefit of  the Providence Home of St. Joseph). Naprey is also one of the bloggers who helped in repacking the goods for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda under the Bloggers for Relief's Project Hygiene Kits. He is also known as the Strong-Wheeled ex-PBB housemate of Pinoy Big Brother House.

4th Back to School Gift Giving Project

An advocacy project helping school children who do not have necessary materials to foster their basic education. Distribution of school supplies will be on May 2014. For those who are interested to volunteer and send their donations, you can contact Naprey Almario at: 

These are the beneficiaries for this year's Back to School Gift Giving Project:

You can also refer to this video created by Glorypearl Dy of Switotwins Digital Storytelling Philippines, also a fellow Davao Blogger:


This video is one of the finalists of The Good Story Competition in Singapore. The said competition is a celebration of creative and compelling video storytelling of everyday people in Asia doing good to improve the lives of others. I am inviting everyone to vote for this video by simply following these steps:
2. Watch & like the video “Naprey the Strong Wheeled...”
3. Share it with hashtag #goodstoryasia
3. Come back tomorrow and do it again!


"This nomination is very timely since Back to School Gift Giving Project will have its 4th installment this May. There will be another distribution of school supplies to less fortunate school children in Davao city and Davao del Sur. If given the chance to win, the cash prize will really help this year's project." - Naprey the Strong-wheeled Back to Schooler
