Our goal is to help our friend Garie overcome some setbacks which have occured due to a choice he made in 2009 to help out a friend. Due to the loss of his drivers license, he lost his full-time job and the ability to pursue his career as an entertainer.This campaign is in conjunction with "A Very Garie Christmas," which is being held Friday, December 9th as a benefit for Garie. For those of you who have expressed a desire to help, but cannot attend the event, here is a platform where you can make a secure donation.

In 2017 I will formalize this into a proper charity to help lift as many children out of poverty as possible. But for now I'd like to just focus on giving them a good Christmas. I'll be heading over around December 17th and will buy as many school supplies as I can in Manilla then head to Coron for a Christmas Day
