Giving Back

I'm not comfortable telling people about this, I haven't told anyone except for my boyfriend, but I have registered myself to be a sponsor of a child through World Vision. I don't mean to brag but I thought I should tell you so you can experience the joy of sponsorship, too. I've been donating P600 since August and another donation for their Noche Buena packs that they will be receiving as Christmas gift this December. I have exchanged letter with my sponsored child and I think this is the most enjoyable part of the sponsorship. Getting thank you letter from them, well as for my sponsored child, he can't write yet but his mother sent me a letter saying she is thankful that her child is part of the World Vision and thanking me as the sponsor. She wishes me well. This letter made my day when I received it through email, I wish it was through mail though but it still gave me the fulfillment feeling. I thought I 'd share this to you so you may experience this kind of joy and make a difference. With just a P600 a month, you're sending a child to school and help their community, too. Who knows, the child you sponsor may be the next President of the Philippines or he may be the one that will invent the cure to cancer. Imagine yourself being part of their success. I've seen the happiness of being a sponsor child. Years back, I have friends and playmates who were sponsored by an NGO and I could see their excitement whenever they are about to receive their school allowance, birthday gift or Christmas gift. Their sponsors helped them to survived everyday. I thought of their sponsors were super rich before but you don't have to be rich to help other people who is in need. God give you blessings and He will pour you more than you can imagine if you know how to share.
You may start the journey of your sponsorship here.

My sponsor child.
