The June collection drive and charity bazaar that made a $419 US dollar donation to Globalgiving portal made an big impact on youth. Hilton Dubai cluster hotels once more were recognized by the Executive Director of CANVAS.ph for giving 3000 books.

“We thought we might take this opportunity to thank you all first, again, for your continuing support for our project. And, we want to show you all how this support has and will continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of children throughout the Philippines.
To date, we’ve worked with various individuals, nonprofits, government agencies and private corporations to give away close to 30,000 books! That’s 10 times what we originally were aiming for, and it all would not have been possible without each and everyone of you.
It all started with your support, quite frankly… Because of your initial and continuing participation, we managed to generate concrete success stories (as we’ve highlighted in our past updates) and considerable interest from other organizations and corporations who were eager to support campaigns to promote children’s literacy and a love for books.
Your belief in our project, and the success that we’ve had with you, has also enhanced the project in one other significant way.”
“I would like to sincerely thank you for your generous $419 donation to our project, which we received yesterday, September 4, 2013. Kindly extend our heartfelt gratitude to all your colleagues at the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Residences as well. Know that every donation helps ensure that we can continue with our work at CANVAS and we are truly touched by your support.
We know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, and appreciate the support you have again given to our cause.
Please consider telling your friends and family about our project – share the link on your blogs or social networks, use the tell-a-friend feature on the project page to email your network, or just bring us up in conversation.
Thank you again and warmest regards.”
