Just last week, the 6th of December to be exact, me and my friends from the RushersML spread some early Christmas cheers by doing an outreach project. A month or so before, we asked for donations from our Yahoogroups members and we accumulated a total of around Php12,000.00! Proceeds were used in buying toiletries, a stand fan, gifts, giveaways and some food for the kids of Bethany House, our chosen beneficiary located in Guiguinto, Bulacan.
Only six of us made it to join on the actual day but we all enjoyed it! We played games, gave gifts, and was able to provide them lunch. Of course this wouldn’t be possible without the (financial) aid of other Rushers mailing listers who participated and donated. It is a really nice feeling to help and reach out to those in need, especially this holiday season. We all enjoyed being part of this. Being the big ate’s and kuya’s to those orphans was really a fun experience. They’re makukulit alright, pero mababait naman.
It was indeed a success! And we hope to make this an annual thing. This is actually the first outreach event I was part of, and I’m really glad I did this. I initially became interested with the idea that’s why I just didn’t offered my financial assistance but joined in the actual outreach day itself. I really hope to join in more programs like this. Let’s all spread the early holiday cheers! Let’s all help and reach out! Even in our own little and limited means, it will surely go a long way.
