LoveBags complete this wedding day

It comes as no surprise. With their combined backgrounds in education, development, and government service, it was an easy choice for Anton and Kathryn Taruc. Instead of sending their wedding guests home with keepsakes, this couple instead gifted 40 students from deprived families of indigenous tribes with LoveBags filled with school supplies.  Be blessed, Anton and...
