Afternoon with the VIRLANIE Kids

One of the reasons why we organized Bloggers United, is to spread awareness and encourage bloggers as well as their readers or other people to get more involved in social issues and take part in positive social changes. I know you're all aware that there are a LOT of less fortunate people in this country, but have you really done anything to help other than say "awww"? Now you can. :) Well, we did. So that means you can too.:)

Last Monday, Ana and I went to a feeding program/Christmas party at Mother-Child orphanage. It is under Virlanie Foundation. The effort was spearheaded by the gorgeous Jane, the same person who organized the Fashion Rev bazaar. She just texted me one night asking if I can donate some stuff and possibly to join the activity. Of course, mabilis pa sa alas kwatro I said yes. I texted Ana and Melai if they wanted to go too. And here's what happened through photos!

so i was a few minutes late because I had to run to the groceries to buy stuff for the kids :)

the volunteers:)

One of the best days of my life. :) I couldn't lift my arms for 3 days but it was all worth it. The smile from the children's faces, the laughter, hugs and kisses were just priceless. I was also able to bond and talk to the mothers who left their children there (they have the freedom to visit their kids). Their stories, the children's stories broke my heart. I just wish these children grow up fearing God and be kind & loving human beings. Ana and I are already talking about going back. We miss our kids. :)

Ana and I rewarded ourselves with a decent meal afterwards. My 1st meal!
love the decorations!

so homey and cozy

cute table display--letters from diners!

my partner in crime Ana:) love you girl! To more charity events--cheers, kampay!:)

We'll be organizing an outreach program soon under Bloggers United. Will announce deets as soon as it's all set:) That's it! Keep smiling, keep giving, keep loving. Share and help as much as you can. Don't do it for convenience, for show, for fame or to just make yourself feel good--do it selflessly for the people who need it the most. I'm not asking you to be a saint. I am most certainly not. But c'mon, we all have a bigger purpose in life other than our jobs, material things, etc. Life is not always about you. We can help in our own little ways. Have faith in people, in humanity. You'll be surprised as to how they'll respond if you'll just make the 1st step. Pay it forward and the returns would be ten folds. :) Let's goooo.
