    Christmas appeal, please read

    So embarrassingly, but fortunately for me, I am still here. I didn't think I would be doing this again but I am still hanging on.

    But this is important. The reason I have launched this early is because we keep getting urgent requests from a local orphanage for help. We are limited in our response.

    I know I am always begging but if you wonderful people can be as generous as you were last year then we can help not only that orphanage but two others plus other children.

    In return if we get to £1000 no more posts from me on Philippine politics and £1500 no more posts on the Philippines! Isn't that worth a few dollars?

    Please can you share to anyone you think might also donate.

    P.S. everything is set up via a friend and my wife so any eventuality is covered so don't worry about that

    Please Please wonderful people.

    If you don't like donating on these crowd funding sites (though this one doesn't charge much at all)
    then I can arrange PayPal or for one particular gentleman a BDO account

    Please don't hesitate, click that button and save Geoexpat from my constant Philippines posts

    Seriously this orphanage needs your help. They opened just before covid and the lockdown started so they couldn't build up their network of support.

    Well that was much easier than the last one. Good luck. I shared it with my Facebook friends so some of them might also contribute. (Quite a few are in Philippines... usually the most generous!)

    Many many thanks.

    I have been talking to a potential big donor in Australia (as in "I will send my people up with promotional material". ) I just can't get a firm commitment.

    First Christmas present of this year is that Hill is still around to kick off this appeal!

    And don't I know it. I hope I can do the same as my granddad, they gave him six months and he lived another 38 years!

    I don't think the fees are much different but PayPal is instant which is great. We can do PayPal via my sister in law, so if you PM me the likely amount I will give you the number
