The Story

New Goals!!!  Philando Feeds the Children is ongoing and will not stop asking for donations until we raise $1,000,000.  This fund will benefit school children starting in the St. Paul Public Schools, and expand statewide and nationwide as we are able.

In memory of Philando Castile, this site is collecting donations to pay off elementary school kids' lunch debt.  The J.J. Hill school is several thousand dollars short.  Some kids get free lunch, but many kids come from families with incomes slightly above the cut off.  They get behind in payments, and need our help.

Philando was "Mr. Phil" to the students at J.J. Hill.  He supervised their food program and interacted with the kids every day.  He knew their names and their diets.  He LOVED his job!

Philando's death affected every one of those kids.  This fund hopes to provide the kids with a lasting connection to Mr. Phil.
Please help Philando continue to feed his kids.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!! The donations and sharing of the cause is amazing!

A giant leap-- Philando Feeds the Children will soon establish itself as an ongoing fund with no maximum goal.  We are now pushing to earn a million dollars.  Once we reach that- thru private donations in any amount, fundraisers, etc.- we will allow the fund to sustain itself via investments through The St. Paul Foundation.


We thank YOU for your donations and interest, and we are asking for your help.  Please share this site.  Please connect us to national media and philanthropic foundations.  Please share this site to any kind, compassionate person you know.


This fund is dedicated to helping feed school kids.  Our purpose will not change.  We just hope to expand it as far as possible.  PHILANDO FEEDS THE CHILDREN!

THIS EFFORT HAS NO END DATE!

The media has reported that we've "surpassed" our goal.  NOT TRUE!!

We want to reach $75k to help all elementary school in SPPS this year.

Then, we keep working to be able to ALWAYS provide help!

Please donate and please SHARE this link!!!

As the Temptations sang, I "ain't too proud to beg."

Philando Feeds the Children needs a little bit more.  Our goal (me and the awesome Metro State Univ class working hard on this project) is $75,000. 

My birthday is Saturday 9-23.  I'll do whatever the biggest donor requests between now and Saturday.  I'll shave my head.  I'll smooch a random stranger.  I'll gladly accept a pie in the face.    If you're local, I'll take you for a drive in my fast car and buy you ice cream.  I'll tell you my deepest secret.  I'll wear high heels and a prom dress to school.  

Seriously-- help us!  

This is the most important thing I've ever done.  And I am having the most fun doing it.  I can stand a little embarrassment along the way :)
