Message from my daughter Ala 2

Hi people in Australia, (and Philippines)

I’d like to ask for your help if you’re willing to give it.

I am selling quality, A3 prints of my artwork at a give-away price to help my friend, Jasmine Mendiola, pay for her son’s hospital bills in Manila. Mio is 5 years old, wants to be an artist, and has been diagnosed with leukemia. Jasmine is a single mom, works 3 jobs, and needs all the help she can get.

She has documented how she and her community are working together to beat the cancer at http://www.miofightscancer.com/

All proceeds of this go to Mio’s hospital fund with the exception of the small amount I need to make even more prints to sell for this fundraiser.

I will be selling for 15 dollars. If I have to post it to you, it’ll cost a little extra for postage.
15 dollars can be a meal at the foodcourt here in Aus, but it goes a longer way in the Philippines. It would really be able to help her out.

E-mail me at ala_paredes@yahoo.com if you’d like to buy or if you’d simply like to help. On display is a photo of the artwork I’m selling, and Mio’s pic,

Thanks everyone! Have a wonderful day and let’s be thankful for all the good things that come out way every day.

Note: This is for people in Aus since I don’t think I can handle conversation rates and transferring money internationally right now. If you’re not in Aus and would like to help, please visit miofightscancer.blogspot.com to find out how.

PS. For people in the Philippines, I am willing to handle orders for 1200 Pesos each. I can have it here in Manila by third week of November and sent to you. All proceeds will go to Mio’s mom who has tons of bills to pay.
