For Ondoy Victim Donations...

FAIR PROCEEDS: 100% of Fair proceeds will go to Ondoy Victims, we noticed during some of our outreach activities, that donations of old items instead of making the Ondoy victims feel good, they feel self-pity. To help them get back some dignity, we aim to get them basic NEW items, that won't make them feel too poorly about themselves. We invite additional cash donations from the BDJ Girls =)

SALES FROM PARTNER BRANDS: Buying from our partner brands during the FAIR, will add our cash donation, among others, COCCO will donate up to 15% of their sales.

DAVID & GOLIATH T-SHIRT DONATIONS: 10 BDJ girls who bring in the MOST T-Shirts will receive a special David & Goliath gift pack. Each gift pack will include exclusive a David & Goliath tee and other premium items! =)
