We ship boxes of flip flops (and shoes), used clothing, children’s books, toys, and household items to needy areas of the Philippines. Your contribution will be sent to either Manila, Philippines or Cebu, Philippines via freight forwarders. We currently ship donated items to the Philippines in 20″ x 20″ x 20″ Balikbayan* boxes. Shipping time via freight forwarders from Portland, Oregon to the Philippines is approximately one month. This is the most economical shipping method for our purposes. When shipments arrive in the Philippines, they are received by our distribution coordinators who distribute the donated items to poverty-stricken families in various towns throughout the Luzon and Visayan regions of the Philippines.
