Last quarter of 2013, my sister and I decided to have our birthdays (in 2014) be a different one. Different from how we usually celebrate it. So we have decided to have it at ChildHaus, together with the children of the institution. CHILDHAUS- It is a temporary shelter for the cancer patients from the far-away provinces, undergoing treatments here in the metro.
So…. in order for us to give more, so this is what we did.
We did garage sale to sell things that we don’t use anymore (or should i say, we don’t use at all) to get more money to buy more stuff for giveaways. I gave a portion of the profits I made from my business as an organizer. My husband pledged to provide for the clown, but since we only have 2 hours for the event with the children of ChildHaus; we just bought 1 sack of rice and the excess money was used for additional toiletries. My sister gave portion of her savings. We also have friends who helped us for the preparation of the food and for the entertainment/ set-up.
I would like to take this chance, to thank all the people who wholeheartedly given their resources, time and effort to make all of this possible. And they are: Arnel, Teacher Alice, Ej, Ning & Bryan, Claire, Ria, Rodilyn and our mother, Judith. May the Lord Above bless all of us!
On Feb. 22, 2014 we did a small community outreach to this institution…
For those who wanted to share their blessings to ChildHaus, you may contact them at 0916-4252927 or you may visit them at 90 Mapang-akit St. Quezon City.
It will surely give your heart fulfillment seeing the smiles on their faces. They are very grateful and accommodating. They are strong. They showed discipline and how to have fun. They just…gave me pure joy.
