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.

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
