Thank You, Mom!
Women taught their children a love of learning and the desire to excel. Now, their sons and daughters, husbands and friends are saying, “Thanks for everything, Mom” by donating to the Philippine International Aid’s (PIA) Mother’s Day Scholarship Program for street children and disadvantaged youth in Metro Manila. It’s a great way to preserve a legacy and to give the gift of education to the next generation.
