It all started with 100 boxes in 2014.

When one of our friends, Zoe, asked if Experience Philippines would want to help out in an outreach program of giving away shoeboxes full of school supplies for kids in Muntinlupa, we all unanimously agreed to be part of this awesome project. We just could not pass up this opportunity to help out. From personal calls, messages to friends and family, we managed to pack around 100 shoeboxes or so. And from that time on, we have continued to help in the #MyDreamInAShoeBox campaign.

That tradition continued on 2015 where we packed around 1000 boxes in 36 hours straight. This year, we are happy to have packed around 2,000 ++ shoeboxes full of school supplies from generous families, friends and road trippers of the ever growing Experience Philippines family.

These were given to different communities around Metro Manila, Pangasinan and Davao. Here are some of the snapshots of our great time planing, collecting, wrapping, and distributing the work of love shoeboxes.

This is us wrapping 1000 boxes in Experience Philippines HeadQuarters. 🙂

Distributing the gift in some of remote areas of Pangasinan.

Looking at the smiling faces made the whole activity worth it. 🙂

Traveling to Davao and meeting Cindy and her team at Flatworld. It was a road trip to remember.

The distribution still continues in Quezon City and some areas in Pasig.

We would like to thank the following people for their generous donations of cash, of school supplies and most of all, their precious time of wrapping and distributing these magical shoeboxes:
