A Little Altruism Goes A Long Way

Just recently, I decided to join the Leo Club to put my thoughts into action. The main reason why I joined the group is to be able to help kids. This is my way of fighting poverty and illiteracy. This is my advocacy.

Yesterday, I volunteered to participate in the feeding program organized by the Leo Club. We went to Loboc, Lapaz and gave out school supplies. We brought food and prepared some games as well. There was also a story-telling portion; its basic goal is to enhance literacy.

I didn’t feel tired at all. In fact, I enjoyed spending my Saturday morning with the children. The altruistic feeling still lingers and I can’t help but smile. It feels good to know that I have helped my community in my own little way.

There will be a next time. That, I promise.


As a bonus, I met a lot of good people in the Leo Club! 😀

Children, praying.

My Leo friends. The guy holding the plastic is Jerrick. He is the president of the organization. The girl holding the microphone is Mia, then there’s Chan-Chan and another Leo member, I forgot his name.
