Something worthwhile


It's been more than a week since I last had an entry here. It was a busy week, filled with activities that involved family bonding and preparation for Sophie's 2nd birthday (less than 3 months to go!). While I can't bring myself to do a decent post, I never failed to check my Facebook account. It keeps me updated with what's happening to my family and friends who are here or abroad, and even keeps me updated with current events, courtesy of news feeds from a well-known broadsheet. I have been lurking for a while too, in Pinoy Bloggers' FB group so I could find activities I can participate in and eventually, blog about. One such thing snapped me out of my week-long blogger's block (my take on writer's block!): HotelwithHeart.com's Pencil Project Signature campaign.


Through the use of Facebook, Hotel with Heart hopes to donate pencils to underprivileged children who are being taught by Dynamic Teen Company (Remember 2009 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida? He's one of the founders of this group). Anyone who has an account can take part in this endeavor, just follow these steps:
  1. Go to HotelwithHeart's FB page and click LIKE.
  2. Look for the Pencil Project tab on the left sidebar. Click it and allow the application access to your account.
  3. Fill up the corresponding blanks and you're done! You have succeeded in donating a pencil. :)
But if you want more children to benefit from this project, don't forget to share the page in your wall and encourage your friends to sign up too. This campaign ends by June 30, and HWH hopes to have reached their target of 10,000 pencils by then.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!

"We can measure statistics of children without the means of Basic Education, we can measure poverty, we can measure the rising crime rate, and we can even measure the cost of ignorance. But can we truly measure the potential of a child? ...By providing these children with the materials wherein they can continue to learn, we are offering them a brighter future."

--Dr. Rudy Sabater, HWH Director

About Efren Penaflorida and Dynamic Teen Company

Dynamic Teen Company (DTC) is a group of concerned young people with a mission of making a small yet significant difference in other people's lives, particularly the small children in slum areas who have no access to education, basic hygiene and sometimes, even love from their families. The group was founded in August 1997 by four teenagers from Cavite National High School, one of whom was Efren Penaflorida, 2009 CNN Hero of the Year.
