Ate Donna Mae Congson's Photos during the Blood Letting and Typing Drive
Super MAJOR-MAJOR thanks to those who came to that event, to donate their rare-type of blood to Philippine Red Cross-General Santos Chapter, to those who failed at the very first screening of the blood letting drive (baka nagpuyat kayo before, plus na-high blood kayo, or what, but it's ok, at least you tried to donate your blood in the first place), to SOX Bloggers who came and to assist Red Cross Volunteers (at kami 'yun), to the mall goers kanina for watching and was a part of something great kanina (oh yeah, that was my first time na namigay ako ng flyers outside the mall then someone snob me, but it's ok! Haha), to the Red Cross Volunteers and Dr. Teves, who offered their time and profession on a Sunday activity, and to the sponsors Ma'am Jinky Borela and Ate Chic Escal for the uber-daming tetra-pack juices, Rolee's Bakeshop for the yummy bread, Piyesta KTV and Resto Bar for preparing the delicious egg sandwiches and soup, Ate Donna Mae Congson and Kuya Emmanuel Sarifa for the lunch of the volunteers and bloggers, Ate Sheng Dumalay for the effort, rice and everything! :) (see her blog post about the activity), for the SOX Bloggers present before, during and after the activity and Robinson's Place Gensan for the place and lending us tables and chairs. In other words, YOU ARE A PART OF THE GROUP's SUCCESS. :)
Ate Donna Mae Congson's Photos with Orphans of St. Gemma Orphanage
Pagkatapos ng Blood Letting Drive sa Robinsons, SOX Bloggers decided to donate the remaining foods to the kids of St. Gemma's Orphanage, Novitiate Compound (at the back of DXCP). There, we met Ma'am Jean, the caretaker and the "mother" of 21 orphans. Agaw-eksena 'yung batang lalaki na naka-wheel chair. "WOWOWEE", he said. He's only 17, masakit man sabihin pero may sakit siya. Naging atensyon din ang 2-month old na si Baby James. Nakakalungkot mang isipin pero inabandona ng kanyang tunay na ina si Baby James. But I know that he is in the right home with his new family. At least the group made them happy through the spirit of love by sharing.
