Please follow this steps in donating for Can of Charity:

SAVE TO SAVE OTHERS

We usually have the good habit of saving money for ourselves so we can have something tucked away that we can use in times of emergency.  Through the Can of Charity project, Caritas Manila calls on the faithful to also develop the better habit of saving money, both bills and coins, this time not for our own emergency needs, but for the needs of the least fortunate in our communities.  Save to save others.
The project is quite simple. We deploy our cans to partner establishments (e.g. groceries, banks, companies, schools) and willing individuals.
For partner commercial establishments, all we ask is that they place our cans in strategic spots so everyone who comes and goes in their office/store can easily drop their donations.
For companies and schools, this can be a good values-development program wherein we can cultivate among employees and students the values of mercy, generosity and compassion by encouraging them to adopt a can.  By letting them take the can home, we also help in cultivating those same values in the family.
For individuals, this is an easy, less pressured, and more affordable way of helping out to those in need.
Once the dropcans are filled-up (usually in a span of 3 months or less, hopefully in a cycle of 4 times a year), our authorized representatives will retrieve and replace the cans.

How much should the cans contain to make a difference?

Ideally, each dropcan should contain at least 350 pesos to make an impact in any of our pro-poor programs. To give you an idea, a can filled to the brim with 5 cent coins would only amount to Php 87.50.
This is the reason why we encourage our partners to drop both coins and bills in our cans.
