Help for Ralph Relucio

Last February 14, a 5th grade Xavier student named Ralph was badly burned during a camping activity.

The school’s official statement can be found HERE.

Every Xavier parent is affected and we have taken steps to raise funds for the boy’s long-term treatment at Makati Medical Center.

Viber parent groups are abuzz about developments in Ralph’s treatment. We are all praying for his complete recovery.

Meanwhile, my friends Penny and Patrice have been thinking of how to raise more money for Ralph.

We are planning to sell some of our pre-loved bags for the cause. Please watch for it.

Very recently I also posted this on Instagram:

My thoughts and prayers are with a grade 5 Xavier boy who was badly burned in a freak accident during a school-related activity. My friends @paradi and @pen602 are meeting today to discuss raising money for the boy who is confined at Makati Med. I will be selling some of my bags and stuff soon. If you would like to contribute you can email me at or send PayPal to with a note that it is for Ralph. And i will give you proof of deposit to Ralph's account. Prayers are also requested.

Since then I have a received a few donations from friends and followers—from the Philippines, Canada, and the US.

Today I deposited the amount of Php 167,573 to Ralph’s BDO account and have emailed the donors the scans of deposit slips.

donations to Ralph

My heart goes out to the boy and his family and can’t imagine the pain they are going through.

If you would like to help out, here are ways you can donate:

1) You can use the Paypal button below

2) You can send me a check and I can deposit for you. Please email me at for my office address.

3) If you would like to make a direct deposit to Ralph’s account, please email me at for the bank details.

One received and deposited, I will email you a proof of deposit.

P.S. We are not in touch with Ralph’s parents, and we do not know them personally. We are doing this as an act of charity and have no personal gain except to help out a child and family in pain.

Thank you very much for your time.
