This year, I (Zita Demaree, founder of AJD Angels of Hope Foundation) was asked to help the  administration of Square Tomatoes Craft Fair at Central Park in Davis, a once a  month affair!  We have a food booth there serving our Filipino signature dish  AJD Lumpia and Pancit meals as our charity fundraising but the booth also became  the haven for the homeless in our Davis community to get their Free  Meals.
Some of you are crafters, inventors, makers  and shoppers please come down and help this Square Tomatoes succeed in our  community because this is also became the livelihood of so many of our  local artisans!
If I have the time in the future, I may  bring together the AJD Fun Fair hosting  the children carnival!
$1.00 COUPON! Print this  postcard for every $10.00 purchase of LUMPIA meals at AJD Food Booth at Craft  Fair by AJD Angels of Hope Foundation.

Looking for something to do? DIY Project and Project Bear at Davis Farmers Market every Saturday and Wednesday hosted by AJD Angels of Hope Foundation

I am so torn between the need to help our community and our country Philippines but I did the best I can.
Last year, AJD Angels of Hope Foundation at launched the “Arts in the Park” as part of our community service project as our relationship with UC Davis and our commitment to our students continue to grow, subsequently it became a D.I.Y. Projects in the Park. You and your children can have a day of fun creating that special bonding making a Tie-Dye t-shirt, beading jewelry, painting, and even learn how to make origami.
Also, for it’s 3rd year build a bear and sponsorship of “PROJECT BEAR” for kids with cancer is ongoing. Around 75 bears were donated to Vicente Sotto Children Ward Hospital in Cebu for the 1st year. (supposedly had an initial beneficiary for an event at Kaiser Permanente Cancer in Roseville). “PROJECT BEAR” made it’s way when I went back to the Philippines in 2012 to celebrate our 1st anniversary, I was in tears to be there with dying children at Vicente Sotto Children Ward hospital.
Starting next Saturday, please help make a Valentine Cards for seniors in our community!
Did you know depression and isolation affects more than 6.5 million Americans ages 65 and older? You can DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Create a handmade Valentine card (we’ll help you!) and our friends at Meals On Wheels Association of America will HAND DELIVER THEM to local seniors!

Our charities are raising funds to benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, a category 5 super-typhoon that ripped through the middle of Philippines on November 8, 2013. With sustained wind speeds of up to 250 km per hour 165 mph bringing death and destruction to millions of Filipinos.  The scale of damage left in its wake was shocking!
