Your Greatness Is Not What You Have, It’s What You Give

“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.” – Mother Teresa

 

 

 

I was browsing some photos online and saw some photos from one of our Philanthropic works. I love slippers and I love giving them to kids. Why kids? Because they make me happy because of their natural vibes. They have genuine smiles and happiness that should not be gone when they grow up. I believe that we should teach all the children well about life while they’re still young because they are the future and instill in their minds the power of positivity no matter what life throws at them.

I grew up in a negative environment wherein I had always been criticized because I was different and I think differently. But when I got married and had my own family, I decided to change myself so that history would not repeat itself. I decided to learn more about life and how to better myself. That is why I love helping children so that they may grow up feeling loved and supported because I know how important it is in order to make all their dreams come true. That is how I am raising my son.

In my own little ways, together with www.ElmerFrancisco.org and our volunteers, we helped the children of Calaanan. They were Sendong survivors. Tropical Storm Sendong hit Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines last December 2011 and left so many families displaced. As a part of the community, it was our moral obligation to help in the rebuilding process.

I see kids running around the city with no slippers or shoes. Since I love wearing flip-flops, we decided to give some to the kids. My husband, Elmer, usually allows me to talk before we start giving. I tell the kids to always say “thank you” because when you are grateful, you get more blessings (in a dialect that they understand). I remember telling Elmer to make them understand the “law of attraction” in a simplified way, in a way that they would understand. Hehehe. It’s all worth it! If you do something out of LOVE, it will give you so much joy and energy.

As what they say, you have two hands. One is to help yourself and the second is to help others.
