ABOUT SSA CFC:
The Combine Federal Campaign (CFC) is the only fund raising that is allowed by law in the federal government. And it is fortunate that Galing Foundation, Inc. has been accepted as one of the non-profits to receive pledges from CFC.
CFC is a global undertaking. It affects not only our immediate neighbors, but what we do here and now affects everyone in the world. Poverty, disease, hunger, violence, happens anywhere, everywhere, anytime, and all the time. This is why it is important to give thanks for what we have. And as part of giving thanks, is giving to the less fortunate. What better way to give than to the Combined Federal Campaign! In our own little way, we can “change lives, one gift at a time!”
For our community members who serves in the federal government, please appeal to your friends and employees in your workplace, to support Galing, by pledging to CFC and choosing Galing Foundation --92690! Thank you for "Changing Lives, One gift at a Time." --- Jane Rolen

More dictionaries, reading books, text books and school supplies are on its way to GFI Mindanao partners
More dictionaries, reading books, text books and school supplies are on its way to GFI Mindanao partner schools and library
September 4, 2010-Norcross, GA
Amidst a wave of crowd at Manila Mart store on labor day weekend, volunteers and donors of Galing Foundation, Inc. packed and shipped 5 balikbayan boxes full of dictionaries, reading books, textbooks, bibles and school supplies to benefit GFI Mindanao partner schools and library: (1) Kipalkuda Elementary School c/o Datu Wali Mission, (2)Landan National High School, (3) Maligo Day Care Center School, (4) Maligo Elementary School, (5) Barangay Maligo Public Library.
Volunteer-donor Bernard Turner shares, "I was there earlier this year with my wife Arjho. One thing that touched my heart was I saw that there was a lack of dictionaries, something very simple that we take for granted here in the United States." As a result of their mission trip last May, Mr. Turner came back with a deep desire to help stomp out illiteracy, promote English literacy by introducing BMAD (Buy Me a Dictionary) Project.

With the generous support from GFI's logistics partner since 2005, MMW Logistics Balikbayan Service, the children and teachers in Mindanao, with a high percentage of IP (indigenous people) population, will soon put the donated educational tools into use.
Donations contained in GFI balikbayan box (shipping nos. 137-141, invoice nos. 100839 & 100840) were received from members of Cross of Life Lutheran Church in Roswell, Queen of Angels Catholic School, Friends of Roswell Library, Atl-Fil Moms, Bernard & Arjho Turner, Abundant Life Church in Lithonia and Lauren & Melissa Luetgers.
Funding of the shipment was provided by Cross of Life Lutheran Church & Faith in Action Ministry under Global Outreach and Atl-Fil Moms.
