Did you just feel something awesome happened to the world today? It’s because of you and me actually. 🙂 Four days after the birth of The Notebook Project, five kids received a set of notebooks for the coming school year today. Talk about instant help and action right? Many, many thanks to my friend Mon, My Man, Don Domeng and My Aunt for the most immediate helping hand. Bless your heart! 😀
I’d like to say something about these five kids who got the spanking new notebooks today. The two boys are brothers and the other three are siblings too. The first two boys do summer jobs for Don Domeng in one of the many Bataan beach resorts here, solely for the purpose of earning money for their school supplies come June. They watch over the billiards table at the resort for Don Domeng and their exact words were “para may pambili ng notebook sa pasukan [to have money to buy notebooks when school starts].” The other three, well, it is not a fantastic story. Their parents left them. Their aunt is now looking after them, bless her heart. You know what these three kids said when they got the notebooks? “Akala namin hindi na kami makakapasok kasi wala na kaming Mama [We thought we would not be able to go to school anymore because we don’t have a Mom anymore].” Breaks your heart, doesn’t it? Thankfully, they got a reason to smile today.
So you see, this is a fantastic project because it touches people and sends good vibes to the universe. If everyone would only look after their neighbor, then this world will be a whole lot better. To all my blog friends who have pledged support, thank you everyone. Looking forward to receiving your help and reporting back to you! This is only part one of The Notebook Project Many Thanks post – I’m praying there’d be a ton more. With your help, that can happen. 🙂 Don’t miss this chance and give your PHP 100 more weight today!
