Since my birthday is coming up, I think I have the golden ticket to ask for whatever I want as a birthday gift, right? Well, that’s what I think. So to make the most of this annual celebration, I did think of something to ask from each one of you for my birthday. You won’t […]

I’d like to address the children in the Philippines who have also experienced a potentially traumatizing event, which came in the form of a typhoon.

The holiday season is a time of giving. This holiday season, I ask you to please remember those who are in need of our generosity the most, such as the families affected by the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

In one of my previous posts (Eradicate Polio Now), I gave a brief overview of what Polio is and a few ways on how to support its eradication. In this post, I’d like to focus more on the various ways I’m aware of to support eliminating Polio in the world completely. Please, if you know of any […]

Imagine $1.25 A Day

Could I live on $1.25 a day? Do I even have the skills, the resourcefulness, and the will to live at $1.25 a day? At $1.25, I could probably get a burger from a fastfood place, but I will have to ration it for an entire 24 hours. I’d probably have to live in a small shelter […]

I became more aware of UNICEF‘s programs for the children and families affected, including establishing safe communities for refugees in neighboring countries. I thought that in addition to telling people about the situations in war-torn countries in […]
