HOPE – This is what we were trying to deliver to the people of Eastern Samar after a massive and merciless Typhoon Yolanda ravaged their land. Each life lost was equivalent to a lost inspiration for them to continue living.
This is what made us pool manpower, usable clothes and canned goods and most importantly – HEART as we gathered for ONE GREAT PURPOSE of visiting the ABS CBN’s Sagip Kapamilya warehouse in November 17, 2013 at the Mother Ignacia, Quezon City.
I considered that day as the greatest gift as I celebrated my birthday on the 18th of November. Priceless.. The boxes of donations were like crosses as we unloaded them out from container trucks – though burdensome, was fulfilling to do in the end.
If you can’t feed hundreds, feed one, Mother Theresa once uttered. That day marked a day to remember among us – the day that we served for people we may never even meet. We may not have been able to go straight to Visayas to see them – but we were there in spirit – rebuilding a nation for them.
