"THE proud bag"
On the 14th of September 2019, our Auckland team hosted Gig4giving - a jazz and blues fund-raiser musical performance for our new project that we have just launched - The Proud Bag. This project is driven towards helping migrants in Auckland by providing them free groceries and toiletries.
Being a migrant ourselves, we know how difficult it is to leave everything behind and start a new life in a foreign land. Thankfully our team is well-settled now and calls New Zealand our new home. We decided to give back to the community by giving away free groceries to Auckland migrants in need. We don't have a power to approve their visas or give them accomodation or a job but through our simple gesture, we are hoping that we can give them a break from worrying “What am I going to eat today” and be able to focus on other important affairs.
Each beneficiary will receive this bag which contains groceries.
This bag is sponsored by www.loyola.co.nz
Our target beneficiaries are:
Migrants in need (who don't hold resident or permanent resident visa and are not citizen)
and currently living in Auckland
If you think "The Proud Bag" can help you please answer this request form or if you know someone who can benefit in this project, please pass this on. Once we receive the answered form, our team member will be in touch with you within 1-3 business day(s) to arrange the grocery delivery dates etc. Please note that we are not affiliated with any Immigration channels and we don't have a power to do background checks - whatever you say to us, we will take it as is and as much as we want to accomodate all the requests, our resources are very limited and therefore there's no guarantee that your request will be granted.
This gesture is more than just "Free Groceries" - this is a gesture of hope. That when you're feeling low, there's someone out there who cares and is willing to lend you a helping hand. Proud Campaign Philippines believes that everyone needs to be valued and has the capabilities to make a difference in the world regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity. If you have questions or you want to know more about the project or the organisation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our organisation is operated entirely by volunteers, all profits are used to provide help to the beneficiaries of the Proud Campaign Philippines and reinvested to the next project to support our mission. With your generous support, we can help more people.
