Your 100 Pesos and 100 Kids in One Project

Aside from celebrating the birth of Jesus, we all know that Christmas is the season of sharing and giving gifts. It is the time, where children are very excited to receive and open gifts. But how about those who are abandoned and street children? 

This year, we, together with the Mission Partners of Mary started the street tutorial and feeding. As Christmas day is fast approaching, we ask the children what are their wishes. Some of them said, to eat and play at Mcdonalds. And yes, wish granted!

On the first week of December, through the help of social media we asked some friends and relatives to help us in donating 100pesos per kid to eat and play in Mcdonalds. We aim to gather at least a hundred of street chidren and orphans. And by Dec. 14, we were able to gather them all in one fun and memorable christmas party held at Mcdonalds, Bajada Davao city branch.

KakaoTalk Makes Party Planning Easier with New Features

Planning to meet with friends can be challenging and frustrating, especially if you are constantly on the go and have different schedules. Especially since Philippines is like a maze filled with one-way streets and small alleyways to get lost in, describing a location to a friend can be especially difficult. KakaoTalk, the No.1 Social Networking App in the iOS App Store, offers a Location Sharing feature, which reduces the hassle of planning and coordinating with your friends, giving you accurate updates on their current location.

With only a few taps on your phone, KakaoTalk’s Location Sharing feature lets your friends know where you are, instead of typing out the complete address. You can also use the feature to share a certain location of choice. Tim Jang, director of Kakao Philippines, explains how this will simplify meeting with friends. “The location feature offers a seamless experience for users, by allowing them to share either their current location or a location of choice all within the KakaoTalk chatroom, without the inconvenience of switching between different applications.”

Back to Back Recognitions for Behind the Rolling Chair

It was about one and a half year since i started blogging about the life of people living with disability. When i started blogging, i didn't realized how important this is especially to us PWDs (Persons with Disability). When i joined Davao Bloggers Society last year, i was inspired by my fellow bloggers of how dedicated they were in blogging. Honestly, im not really a good writer but i realized that if you have the passion, you can do it. If you are just positive enough to think that what you are doing was not just merely writing, it is about helping the sector in voicing out the rights of PWDs so as to give awareness to people.
