What is The Just Right Project to me?
It’s more than just music, an event, or a fundraiser, it’s a chance for us to get together as a community and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate families out in the world. When my good friend Jay-P and Mark Modesto told me about The Just Right Project, I was moved by it and I knew I wanted to be involved somehow, I wanted to help with whatever I can.
The goal of the Just Right Project is to build homes for the less fortunate families living in the harsh conditions in the Philippines. This is done by raising awareness and putting together a series of fundraisers where all the proceeds go to the ANCOP Foundation. It costs $2,300 to build a family a long standing home that is passed on from generation to generation. The beneficiaries of the homes are families described to be the poorest of the poor, most with five or more family members. Third Floor Network along with DJ Jay-P launched the Just Right Project to aid in raising awareness and money for the cause.
After a few discussions with Jay-P and Mark Modesto, we have decided to put together a fundraiser here in Toronto and allow everyone the opportunity to help the cause. It would be nice for us people in the Toronto/GTA area to come together and build a home for a family that really needs it. So after all the discussions, we have put together the Just Right Project: Toronto happening this Thursday April 21st, inside Blondies. The atmosphere will definitely be great for the night. DJ Jay-P will be coming in from Los Angeles to provide the music for the night along with myself. It would be nice to have everyone come out, support the cause and hang out to good music with good people.
The minimum donation for the event is $10, and all the proceeds will be donated to the ANCOP Foundation. And when November comes around, Jay-P, Mark, and I, will be heading to the Philippines to help build these homes that you all help put together. So let’s all save the extra $10 we are going to spend on something meaningless and let’s make a change in the world!

Definitely want to thank Ms. Vargas for her generous donations and sponsoring Team RunRight. Her contribution will help change lives, just like what this lady does for her career. She saves lives and loves being there for her patients as a Registered Nurse at USC University Hospital, Cardio-Thoracic Intensive Care Unit.
Alongside with her continuous support in helping raise awareness is Nina Salgado, Account Coordinator at Brand Building Communications, Beverly Hills. With an extremely demanding work schedule, but loving every second of it, exudes out of Ms. Salgado, that what you do is truely complimentary to everything around you.
Their amazing drive keeps me driven and I am very appreciative and just blessed to have them a part of the JustRight project… and my life! Love these women!
“… Knowing which friends are “just for professional use.”
Mr. Eric Uaje is a very busy guy, with a full-time schedule: he is either at work as Strategic Growth and Market Planning Analyst at Epson, studying to get his Masters in Business Administration at USC, or you’ll see him at 24Hr Fitness Gym getting a workout in between hours! He means business all the time! And is the JustRight friend to talk to about aspirations and goals. I am not trying to brag about the guy, but I am just so proud of him and very appreciative of his generous donation that will change lives and help build homes for the less fortunate in the Philippines, and also for sponsoring myself, Chrystal for Team RunRight during the HB Surf City Marathon!
“…supporting friends and sharing on my good fortune to the less fortunate is just right!!”
“… It doesn’t matter how long you haven’t seen a true friend because when you do see them, everything is JustRight.” -Aldo Sibal
I am a big believer of surrounding yourself and always reconnecting as much as possible with positive and good people to help motivate you, keep you driven and just simply happy.
They wouldn’t be considered just people, they would be the definition of friendship.
Finally had an overdue and over-consumption of all-u-can-eat korean bbq dinner the other night with an individual who I have the upmost respect for because of his love for life and down to earth attitude. He had open ears and an open heart about the JustRight Project and is definitely on board to raise awareness.
Thank you Aldo for your support and I appreciate you so much as my bestfriend! I cannot wait until our big trip to the motherland, Philippines.
“JustRight is jazz on a Monday evening. JustRight is love in its purest form. JustRight is change in its finest hour. JustRight feels just right.” -Coincidence

“I’m Coincidence. I rap & occasionally make a beat.
Born a Knicks fan, raised a UCLA fan..I live to read the Sports page, jot notes in my Moleskine, and enjoy my daily 2 cups of cofee, black…none of that shit B drinks.
Woody Allen is my spirit animal. David Halberstam is my mentor. Charles Oakely is my doppelganger.
Musically, I’m a kid from the “boom bap” generation, when it was just about dope raps over doper beats. I grew up dubbing DJ Revolution’s sets on the Wake Up Show and memorizing Ras Kass freestyles. I dunno if there’s anything I feel more than a Cam’ron verse or a track from…
I currently blog about basketball shenanigans and help out with some NBA stuff in the PDX.
That’s about it.”
This very modest kind soul (and I am not just saying this because he is my best friend of 15 years) but I can proudly say that I am fortunate to see this individual evolve as a talented musician, CEO/founder of HW&W Recordings, producer known as Pete&Pete and phenomenal sports journalist on his known sports blog dedicated to 90′s athleticism on oakelyandallen.
Thank you very much Coincidence on your generous donation and blessing our ears with a beat made just for the JustRight Project.
“Being a part of this amazing generation feels JustRight to me. The young people of our generation are realizing that we are the future and are taking things into their own hands to better the world. Little by little, we are doing what is JustRight for each other. Today’s technology has made it possible for a single idea to grow like a wild fire. Success and a brighter future are at our finger tips… and its up to us to make it JustRight!!!”

…”about contribution, compassion, and expression of God’s kindness onto those in need. Although many of us have been fortunate enough to not endure such hardships, we can only imagine how life would be without basic living essentials. The JustRight Project not only raises awareness, but also unites people with the common intent to help others less fortunate, and I’m happy to be even just a small part of it.”
“JustRight to me is about helping the less fortunate. Everyday it’s easy to take things for granted, but each day I’m thankful for what I have, and it makes me realize that there are people out there that are going through a lot and need help. I’m more than happy and willing to do my part.” -Monique Magbuhos
“Being blessed enough to have a roof over our heads is often taken for granted. Given this opportunity to help our own people who live in poverty gives us the chance to bless them with a home of their own… Feels JustRight!!” -Law and OP
“The importance of JustRight for me is twofold. First, the artists that I manage are featured on DJ Jay-P’s anticipated mixtape. Hip hop band, Rhythm Natives, have an original track on the mix and R&B singer, Christine Alane, does a cover song for the mix. To have my mutually exclusive artists be together on one project is very rewarding. Second, JustRight has a philanthropic element that brings me back to earth. It keeps me aware of my own blessings and to not sweat the small stuff because there are people out there going through so much more. And JustRight reminds me that there are no geographic barriers that separate me from them – I can easily help those in need.”
