Last Thursday, 08th December, was the charity event that was catered by my Mom's employer Qantas Airlines. We volunteered to help out since we have met the kids from #BahayParola before so we went to Sky Ranch and met up with the kids.
We went on rides with them and made sure they had a great time. We all ate at KFC. Thank you, KFC for sponsoring food for the kids. After a whole afternoon of playing around in Sky Ranch we then went back to Cavite where their orphanage is located to give them their Christmas presents.
A big help from Tita Karla Estrada, Piolo Pascual, Tita Oselle Punla, Doc Haoie, Tito Keren Pascual & Ms. Char of Coca-Cola, Ate Tain of Vans, Kuya Cliff of CDO, KFC, Oishi, HMR & others I forgot to mention for helping out and making it all possible. One of the head care takers of Bahay Parola said "usually around Christmas time we're lucky if we get a sack of rice or two sacks of rice. But this year because of Qantas Cabin Crew Team (QCCT), you've made this Christmas very special to the children."
I was happy I was part of the Charity event. I even made friends with more than a couple of kids. I promised them I'd come back to check up on them and that I really will do. Around February, may naka-schedule na, na feeding program nila. We're gonna go back there and cook for the kids. I don't know. Let's see what else can we do to make them smile again by then.
It definitely felt good to give, for a change, instead of receiving especially around this time of the year - Christmas time. It felt good to do something like that simply just for the love.
