After producing the feature documentary, Gwapa, we became enchanted with the spirit of Pitogo Island, a tiny remote island off the coast of Bohol, and created lasting friendships with the families there. Pitogo Island is very remote and getting necessary supplies is challenging. Many children eat only rice and don’t have shoes or pants to wear to school. We started Project Pitogo as part of Weird Pixel’s philanthropic arm and as a way to extend compassion, goods, and assistance to children and families of Pitogo Island.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
2ND ANNUAL DONATION DRIVE
After Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda devastated the Philippines in 2013, we collected over 450lbs worth of critical clothing, supplies, and toys, and relayed them to our dear friends on Pitogo. It was a great success! In the spirit of friendship and compassion, we’re gearing up for our 2nd Annual Donation Drive to meet the ongoing needs from the Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda rebuild and preparing for future disasters.
