Birthday Project 2013: How to Donate or Sponsor my Bridge Run

I’ve been asked by a number of my friends on how to donate so I decided to create a post for everyone to refer.

The goal of this post is to answer the question: “How to Donate?“.

There are a number of ways on to donate or show your support. I’ll list a few and if you think aI still miss something, kindly inform me.
1. Go directly to the Starlight Jumpstart Fundraising page and click on “Donate Now“.

 

2. Click on “Sponsor Me” link found on my blog’s sidebar widget. It will direct you to the Starlight’s official Fundraising page and click the “Donate Now” button. (See Option 1)

 

3. You can simply click on the direct link of the donation page: Everyday Hero Donation Page. It will redirect you to the page where you have to enter your name and payment details. Fill it up and click “Confirm & Pay”. That’s it!

Payment Methods: Credit/Debit Card, Paypal or Cash/Cheque (Australia only)

4. For Philippines based donation: You can directly deposit thru my BPI or BDO account and will just convert its equivalent to Australian Dollars. I’ll use the exchange rate of AUD 1 = PHP 40. Just email me the deposit slip to confirm the transaction. In return, I’ll be sending you a copy of the funds transfer notification with reference number for confirmation as well.

Account Name: Kathleen Madula

BPI Savings Account #: 4019009624
Branch: Tektite

BDO Savings Account #: 00280689306

5. You can also help just by share my link: http://www.starlightjumpstart.org.au/kathmadula to your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Blogs or Emails. They might be willing to sponsor me :)

Thank you very much for the support. God bless your generosity.

Preparation for my Birthday Project 2013

I’ve been thinking of my Birthday Project 2013 ever since I moved to Sydney. I felt bad that I can’t do it with my friend Coe whose been my partner in crime during these days. I know I can’t do the things I used to do in the Philippines since I’m new here. I don’t even know if charities exist here. Little did I know, the answer to my question is just around the corner.

Exactly 2 weeks ago, I started working in a company here in Australia. I got to learn new things, made new friends and just enjoying everyday of workday. On my first days, I was welcomed warmly by everyone, I got my own space and desktop. And then they set-up my email. I noticed then their email signatures have more lines than the usual signatures I had before. They’ve included a link to Starlight Children’s Foundation. That my friends caught my attention.

I’ve been reading about this foundation since then and felt that it was the Lord’s answer to my prayers. Now I had a charity institution as a beneficiary of my yearly Birthday Project 2013. It is so timely and it is also for children. You know how my heart is for the Youth of today, so this is the perfect match.

The Starlight Children’s Foundation provides positive distraction and entertainment for seriously, chronically or terminally ill and hospitalised children, to take their mind off the pain, stress & isolation caused by their illness and treatment. Starlight provides an opportunity for them to simply be kids, have fun and connect with other children. Starlight does this through entertainment programs within and outside the hospital environment.

Luckily, they had this page on how to fundraise, so I created one. I’ll still continue to research about this foundation and start to share the donation page in a couple of days. You can see my donation page here.

I hope you can support me again like you used to when I’m still in the Philippines. This would be a challenge for me since a lot of donors in the past gave goods instead of money. Well, I wouldn’t know unless I try, right?
