Brought to you by the Social Involvement Coordinating Office, with SAMAHAN Central Board (through STAMP and COFA).
The big box from Davis Langdon Dubai Office arrived too early for the next distribution. This is something POHD is grateful for because the volunteers need not collect writing materials for the next batch of beneficiaries.
They seem to have encompassed the needs of the students as they didn't only stick with pencils and pens. They also included other school supplies such as
sketchbooks and crayons
erasers and sharpeners
bond paper, rubber bands and chalk and
Marlon, Elbert, Rene, Carla, Raffy, Gloria, Irizh, Axel, Piggoy and Jun.
May you continue spreading your contagious habit of kindness and concern
for the Filipino kids.
POHD received a small blue pack of writing materials from the UK. Apparently, the donor doesn't want his/her name published on the Internet but nevertheless, this small act of kindness is worth blogging.
Whoever you are, it's quite evident that you sent not only writing materials but also love. Thank you.
