Beginning this month, we will post past donations for our "Throwback Thursday" in order to put a spotlight on OUTSTANDING donors. It is because of their extraordinary generosity that we are able to successfully achieve our goals and to further our mission.
We would like to seize this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Ruthless E-juice, a California-based e-juice company established in early 2012. This young company has already seen tremendous success in the US and is steadily making its mark internationally because of its high-quality e-juices.
Inspired by their success and with a desire to give back, the owners of RUTHLESS E-JUICE, Allen Joseph and Rb Barredo, decided to partner with Pusong Pinoy upon learning about our organization from one of their friends, our very own Charter Team Leader, Dan Pasamonte.
In 2014, these heroes rose to the occasion by way of their newly released product aptly named Rise, a mango and lychee flavored concoction with a hint of jackfruit. To help survivors in the Philippines rise above the tragedy caused by Typhoon Haiyan, Ruthless E-juice pledged to donate $1.50 for each bottle of Rise sold. They made good on their promise and gave hope to fishermen still reeling from the effects of the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines.
In collaboration with our giving partner, One Heart for Hope Foundation, Ruthless E-juice was able to provide 45 fishing boats to fishermen in Camotes Island, Tulang Diyot and Malaspascua Island in Eastern Visayas with their donation of $9,000.
Once again, thank you for your generous support and we wish you more success in all your future endeavors!
