Books for the Barrios has donated over 12 million books to the needy children of the Philippines. Here is a video slide show I created to show you some of their work.
Last Sunday, when I sent out NaFFAA’s press release regarding Mayweather’s rant about Manny Pacquiao, I wrote…
A PERSONAL OPINION from Lorna Dietz (before sending out this NaFFAA statement to her email list and social media network): Mayweather is no match for Manny Pacquiao’s world-class quality of character. For those who know him AND who know him well, “PacMan” is morphing into a true statesman and philanthropist who knows how to transform the energy of his influence to benefit, for instance, the needy children of the world.
A special thank you to the NaFFAA Region 8 teamwork of Ben Menor and Baylan Megino in preparing this online auction for Books for the Barrios.
