It’s a Philanthropy Tuesday everyone! Bonuses are just around the corner, so let me share with you the invitation/announcement I received in my e-mail from World Vision. Some good ways for us to pay it forward. Please spread the word too!
If you are into organic food products, this is for you!
“The Aeta Belbel Tribe in Zambales, a former sponsored community of World Vision who have been trained to grow fruits and vegetables through organic farming, will be selling watermelon and rice (both organic) at the World Vision office. As a World Vision partner, you are most welcome to buy their healthy products at an affordable price!
Organic Watermelon @ P25/kilo
Organic Rice (RC18) @ 2,500/sack
You may visit our office at 389 Quezon Avenue corner West 6th St. West Triangle, Quezon City on Thursday, November 12, 2015. For inquiries, call 372-7777.”
Mommies and daddies, here’s a perfect Saturday bonding activity for the whole family! While you’re at it, teach your kids about social responsibility and interaction with other kids. If you’re a Team Kramer fan, here’s your chance na rin for a meet and greet (plus other celebrity-ambassadors pa)!
If you’re in the hood of Eastwood, this event is pretty cool. I’m from Manila and I would have loved to join but unfortunately, I have classes on Saturdays.
It’s Christmas-time! In the spirit of the most wonderful celebration ever, why not remember and bless the less fortunate families by helping World Vision provide them with a bountiful meal on Christmas eve with just P500.00. It’s so cheap as compared to a price of a planner if you know what I’m talking about!
Among many campaigns, this is my favorite because I knew exactly what is it like to celebrate Christmas eve without enough food on the table, more so gifts on the tree. You’ll be surprised if I say that in my case it did not greatly matter because I was just a child then, shielded by my parents, my mom especially. But now that I’m a mom myself, I realize that it must have been a torture for parents, for a mom not to be able to provide for their/her kids especially on Christmas. Let’s make the less fortunate parents, especially the moms have a blissful Christmas by helping them provide an abundant Noche Buena for their family, especially their kids.
What is included in the Noche Buena gift?
The Noche Buena gift contains spaghetti and fruit salad meal ingredients with the additions of canned goods, and juice for the entire family. In some poor communities, families expressed their preference for pancit meal over spaghetti because it is easier to prepare and they make bigger servings out of the provided ingredients.
When is the deadline for sending the Noche Buena gift?
We would greatly appreciate receiving your gift before December 11, 2015, so we can give your most-awaited gift for the children and their families before Christmas Eve.

Let’s take action, okay? The priest was right on his homily last Sunday. We receive so many daily blessings, so much that it would not even hurt just a bit if we share them with others. Blessed Tuesday!
