The Gift : #GlobeWonderfulProject

Galatians 6:9-10 ______ 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

I stumble upon a blog as I read her article about what gift we can give for the Philippines? I decided to join and thinking that maybe I should try my luck, not merely on winning but hoping that "somebody" would spare time to consider what could be my gift for my beloved country.  The question is very simple, yet answering it was was very hard.

My wish to gift for my beloved country is a gift of Livelihood Program to those people affected of typhoon Yolanda. Before anything else we can easily recover from that incident if we have something where we can generate money. Money today is the most needed resources, you cannot buy food and other basic commodities  without it. So instead of giving a certain amount of money to everyone, why not give each family (if possible) the gift of livelihood, like giving them seeds for planting fruits, vegetables, local crops, for poultry raising, and even materials for fishing. They don’t need “short-term-help” they need lifetime solution for them to be able to survive everyday. They need something useful that would benefit not just a single person but for the whole family, and perhaps for the whole community. This wish of mine is quite impossible but I believe that Nuffnang Philippines together with Globe Telecom this project is just a piece of cake! All we need is just a careful research, intensive planning, and strict monitoring who could benefit this project would definitely a BIG success. In the long run if all people are productive your advocacy of helping would never be forgotten. Many lives would thank you for this bright idea of #GLOBEProjectWonderful2014.  This project could be your Legacy, A legacy that will last a lifetime for future generations. A livelihood Program that will uplift the lives of many Filipinos. A program that aims to attain better life for the whole community, and promotes national development for the whole humanity.

If only I have the money to make this project possible I would do this. If you would ask me if I already help this typhoon victims, YES I already have. I have deposited a small amount of money to ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya bank account. I believe that no small amount is too small, but as long as we are  helping out , we can achieve greater things. For as long as there are people/organization would willingly make this project happen, nothing is impossible. If everyone of us wholeheartedly extend our help to the needy we can surpass every trials that comes along. #ProudPinay.

  1. Great post. :)

    Since I support Globe’s PROJECT WONDERFUL for 2014, my gift to the Philippines is to help ENHANCE Project Wonderful via the acronym H.O.P.E. so more help/assistance can reach our fellow Filipinos, and this project can give them inspiration, and more importantly, HOPE.

    With Globe’s Project Wonderful, I can fuse my ideas with the existing system to ensure Filipinos are given enough help and a boost of HOPE. The gift of HOPE are enhancements to the current and existing GLOBE PROJECT WONDERFUL which aims to provide help and inspiration to our fellow Filipinos.
    HOPE stands for:
    H – Help Others to Help Others
    O – Overcoming Obstacles
    P – Post it! Appreciation Board
    E – Education for Sustainability of efforts

  2. I think we all need reminding that access to quality healthcare is not a privilege but a fundamental human right. Ensuring the overall wellbeing of individuals not only results in being better capable of achieving anything but also ultimately leads to empowerment. And that is the kind of people that every nation needs, for who but its people will lead any country to grow and develop? We need empowered and competent individuals to drive the Philippines to progress. So if I could give any gift to the Philippines, it would be better/full access to quality healthcare. :)

  3. If I can give something to the Philippines that is immaterial, that would be Discipline. If one person wakes up one morning and decided that "starting today, I will follow rules and the law, I will be a disciplined citizen." And religiously and conscientiously does this everyday for the rest of his life, and other people will see this change and because of this example others will follow suit. If this will be our mentality, don't you think our country would be a better place to live in? Where: - people don't throw their trash just anywhere, drivers follow their lanes, public utility vehicles stops at points only where it is allowed to drop or pick up passengers, people cross where it s only allowed to cross the street, motorists follow the speed limit and are diligent, people know how to fall in line and don't cut in a line, we arrive in meetings or gatherings on time, we don't vandalize and other thousand more things that we can do to show discipline.

    The tangible thing that I want to give to the Philippines is the gift of Education. I still strongly believe that education is the key for success; yes, there are those who make their lives and the lives of their loved ones easier and comfortable by making a living and succeeding in their fields even though they have not finished school. But that's one in a million. Having proper education will still give someone an edge to survive in this world. One can get a better paying job, thus, one will have greater chances of helping his/her family for a better life.

    With that being said, to answer the question: "If there is one thing you can give to the Philippines, what is that gift?”, I would like #GLOBEProjectWonderful2014 help me by Adopting a Scholar or Donating to REAL LIFE FOUNDATION.

    Real LIFE Foundation is a christian non-profit, NGO that was incorporated in 2007 with the vision of seeing thousands of marginalized Filipino youth educated, gainfully employed and uplifting their communities. The goal of Real LIFE Foundation is to transform lives, families & communities through hope and education. Real LIFE Foundation is one of the organizations that is in line with what I believe in. Like them, I strongly regard that education is the key to a better life.

    The foundation does not only help its recipients by paying for their tuition, but they also help equip them in most, if not all, that they will need to finish college and what they'll be needing when they start looking for a job. They hold personality development coaching for the scholars and even tackles on how to dress and present their selves properly during job interviews and when they're already employed. Also, the students’ other miscellaneous expenses will be covered, like books, uniforms, OJT expenses and a daily meal & transportation allowance. Because of that the scholars don’t have to worry if they will be able to eat or get to school.

    As I've said awhile back, Real LIFE Foundation does not only focuses on the financial side of putting a student in school but also comprehensively addresses the needs of their scholars that will help them thrive after finishing school. This is done through their LIFE Coaching, which is the character development program of the Real LIFE Foundation and which provides mentoring for their scholars in Leadership, Integrity, Faith, and Excellence.
