Kumusta na mga Mandirigma!

I hope this email find you in great health. I have current update on the Donation Process for the benefit of our friend and brother in the arts, GM Roland Dantes.

I just want to let you all know that I have recently made arrangement with Attorney Vic Turdanes, a member of the Philippine Council of Kali Eskrima Arnis Masters and close friend of GM Dantes. He is now helping and representing GM Dantes with all finances relating to the payments of the medical and hospital expenses. To insure that all donations will be received and applied promptly, I have been asked to be the central point in the USA to handle donations.

I am very honored to take this responsibility and trust. Please rest assured that all donations made by you will be sent promptly and properly applied.

How this will work?

Donors would send their monies (check or money orders only) to my attention. Upon receipt, these will be deposited. I will immediately send an email to each donor confirming receipt of their donations. I would then process the electronic funds transfer that would be sent directly to the bank account as set up by Attorney Vic Turdanes. I will be sending the electronic funds transfer in batches to lower our cost per transaction.

Please do the following:
  • Please make sure to make the checks or money orders to my name, Myrlino Hufana.
  • Also, please indicate on your check or money order that this is for GM Dantes Donation.
  • Simply write GM DANTES DONATION somewhere at the bottom of the check/money order.
  • Make sure to include a note or letter with your email address so that I can email you with a confirmation.
