In a hastily called online drive for toys to somehow uplift the spirits of the traumatized kids who survived typhoon Yolanda in the Visayas, Goshen Land is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for the short term project. Goshen Land customers who dropped by the company’s home store during the weekend run to the nearest toy store in Baguio and rushed back to the office to bring brand new toys.
Goshen Land partners– the ones who work at Goshen Land also gave anything from whatever they could spare from their homes. Karin Bangsoy, a 15 year old Grade 10 student in Baguio who also writes for Joseph Digest, told her parents she will give her birthday money to the typhoon victim kids in lieu of a 16th birthday on November 30 which she planned earlier.
A resident at The Courtyards, a Goshen Land master planned community in Baguio gave five thousand pesos to the drive. Netizens also suggested drop boxes must be placed along Session Road for the toys drive . Goshen Land staff responded immediately to the request by placing a box infront of Manahan building along Session Road.
For the long term, Goshen Land plans to help rebuild homes of some indigent survivors in the Visayas beginning next year.
