Indeed, we had a long conversation with Ms. Jeni Mabanta today as to how we can share some of our blessings to the Batang Philex Mines, particularly the children of those retrenched employees, and hereunder is what transpired with our discussion:
1. As of this writing, there are now 670 registered members of Batang Philex Mines, if each one will contribute P200, that will amount to P134,000 already, equivalent to almost 100 sacks of rice. As for the the type of Christmas Gift that we will give, perhaps we can think of many things.
2. The question that follows is, what will happen next after Christmas? Jeni suggested that why don't we try to sponsor a scholarship program for those children? Well, why not? For discussion purposes only, we put everything in figures, as follows:
a. If each member will contribute P200 per year, that will be P134,000 per year.
b. If the tuition fee per semester is P15,000, that will be P30,000/year, therefore, the P134,000 can cover 4 students already, however, allowances is not yet included.
c. Over the 4-year period, each member have shared P800 only for the studies of 4 students.
c. The P134,000 computation above is simply based on the 670 registered members we have today, multiplied by P200, therefore, if some members will contribute more, and if more Philexians will join us, more beneficiaries will surely be entitled.
These are just but few topics which we have discussed today with Jeni, and we just wanted to share to everyone and hear their views and sentiments.
As you know, one of Batang Philex Mines' vision is to reach out to all Philexians so that they can share some of their blessings to those less fortunate ones, therefore, let's act now because we only have 98 days left before Christmas.

Thanks for sharing P1,000 for the xmas activities.
Slowly, we are accumulating lots of donations. I hope the others will come forward and show their support to our cause. We only have 85 days left before christmas... I hope we can get your commitments.
As for the bank details, we will inform everyone very soon because we are still working out for the registration of the BPM FOUNDATION. In case we run out of time, we will just be depositing all donations to a special account which will be published in our website.
For the other members, PLEASE SHOW YOUR LOVE TO PHILEX...COME FORWARD, SPEAK UP AND LET US HEAR YOUR VOICE!

Thank you very much for your commitment to contribute Euro 200. As of this day, the equivalent of Euro 200 is Php 13,300. I really appreciate this big amount that you commit for the christmas activities. I hope you can help in informing the other blessed philexians to share some of their blessings too.
I can see now that this planned xmas activity is just an arm reach away because more Philexians are showing their love and concern to our cause.
Thank you again and we will be advising all donors very soon as to where they will deposit their donations.
