One million pesos is still such a huge amount for most. But how much of one thing does one million pesos get you? Since it’s the season of giving, we thought about the different charitable institutions that you can donate your one million. Here are a few of them:
1,110 school bags from the NVC Foundation
The NVC Foundation is a non-profit organization in the Philippines that aims to help children in remote areas with their education by giving kids school bags filled with supplies. At Php 900 per school bag, your Php 1,000,000 PayMayaguinaldo grand prize would allow you to donate around 1,110 of these school bags filled with the following supplies:
1 sturdy, water-resistant backpack
5 pencils with eraser tips
1 pencil sharpener
1 pencil case
5 pads of standard writing paper
1 bottle of glue
1 box of crayons (24 colors)
1 pair scissors
1 pack of colored construction paper
1 12-inch ruler
1 pair of rubber slippers for climbing hills and crossing rivers
Feed the shelter dogs 160 times or shelter cats 207 times
The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) shelters dogs and cats of many breeds and stages in life. Often, these animals are rescued from abandonment, and are up for adoption. However, since not everyone can adopt a dog or cat, the agency is always open for volunteers to care for the animals they shelter and they have a feeding program! Php 1,000,000 can go a long way into making sure these dogs and cats are well-fed and happy while they wait for their forever homes.
The food is composed of 25 kilos of boiled ground pork mixed with 8 kilos of boiled rice for dogs (around Php 6,216 in total) and 20 kilos of boiled galunggong mixed with 2 large boiled and mashed pumpkins for cats (around Php 4,820 in total). With Php 1,000,000, you can conduct a shelter feeding program for dogs 160 times or 207 times for cats!
Adopt 2,857 seedlings for reforestation
The Haribon Foundation is a non-profit organization with a focus on ecological preservation. They have an Adopt A Seedling program that accepts monetary donations in order to fund the planting and care of seedlings in areas of the country that need reforestation. If you adopt a seedling, you will be given a certificate and updates of how your little tree is doing!
One million pesos will allow you to adopt 2,857 seedlings courtesy of the Haribon Foundation!
