Project Diksyonaryo Atbp Campaign

Thinking Thoughts_v13.02

Well, I accidentally deleted my first Thinking Thoughts post v13.01... :(

Let me start my Thoughts v13.02 by sharing what I have learned in life recently. As what most people say, "the more you give - the more you receive".

Well not really in a way that I am expecting something in return, I just realized lately that I am more blessed than others because I have stable jobs, stable income resources, and stable way of living. I can at least eat three times a day, have the capacity to rent an apartment away from home, and buy the things I need and sometimes want. :)

The idea of giving a part of what I have came into my mind last week. I considerably have a lot in life but do others have enough in life to survive a day? Last year I joined a Non-Government Organization (NGO), Diksyonaryo Atbp. / Project Dictionary, which constantly aims to provide and supply books and dictionaries to schools in remote areas of the Philippines.

How was I able to join the organization? It was a Saturday and I'm just in my apartment watching TV. I tuned in to GMA News TV Channel and the program being shown was a documentary created by GMA reporter, Lia Manalac-del Castillo. Besides being a TV reporter, she also spearheaded the Diksyonaryo Atbp group. It started as her birthday wish years ago, and it has now grown into a big group sharing the same purpose which is to help provide books for education.

I was touched by her documentary. Yes, I felt the need to help. I searched the NGO's website and signed up as a volunteer. And there I started sharing their purpose.

This year, the group has a lot of activities lined-up for book donations and student's "sponsorship". I decided to donate PHP 400 which will be used to purchase 5 Adarna story books (worth PHP 80 each), and will plan to further give PHP 1,500 to sponsor an elementary student from Benguet for a field trip in Manila this June 7 - 9. I don't mind the amount I donated and will donate, it was the unexplainable feeling of happiness and satisfaction afterwards that was definitely the most rewarding.

We do not have all the time in the world. Wake Up, and Think of your purpose in life.

What do you think is lacking in your life? Or perhaps, what's a good thing to do in life? If you share the same sentiments with me, share the same purpose with Diksyonaryo Atbp. You can help students grow their minds with more knowledge through educational books.

Sign up and stand up with your purpose to Raise Literacy, One Child at a Time!
