DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Healthy Balance Between Work And Family Life - Part 1

Del Monte workers and their families create a healthy balance between work and family life as they explore new ways to get their families closer the fun way.

Cawayanon Kick-out

Plantation employees and spouses took time to play with their children during the Foundation Day of Del Monte School in Cawayanon. They joined the kickball game and other sports events lined up during the two-day celebration. Parents welcomed the activity as it gave them time to bond with their kids.

An Inspiration to Excel

Plantation employees share time and talent with aspiring football players, mostly children of their co-workers. Sr. Mgr. Ramon Manlunas, the moving spirit and president of the Bukidnon Football Association who has been elected recently to the Board of Governors of the Philippine Football Federation, works closely with supervisors Franz Rizon, Apet Sicat and other football aficionados to spark interest in the game among youngsters. Franz and Apet served as mentors of Del Monte's football teams that represented Bukidnon at the National Finals of the Philippine Olympic Festival in Pasig. Their efforts yielded outstanding results: the Under-17 team brought home the bronze medal while the Under-15 team won 4th place in its category. Both teams earlier won silver in the Mindanao Division Championships in Cagayan de Oro. The proud winners are Paul Corbita, Merick Torino, Princeton Josue, John Dalaota, Archie Tacgos, A de Jan Burdeos, Mariel Gumop-as, Lois Madrio, Rodante Larios, Jr., Dennis Tao-on, Rey Brusas, Anthony Segundo, Jude Boo, Jovan Obatay, Dennis Hojas, Jr. and Justin Paluga. Players Jovan Obatay and Jason Lofranco are among the 24 Jose Y. Campos scholars. All team members get tutorials at the Center for Football Excellence in Camp Phillips, one of five in Mindanao and funded by the Phil. Football Fed. with support from Del Monte.
