Tolentino Family’s Dance Workshop with Holy Family Home

Dance Workshop with Holy Family Home

Before the start of the event, Kuya Harvard played a number of songs and to our surprise, the Holy Family kids were able to sing along with all of them! We found out that their favorite song is “Dessert” by Darwin. When Kuya Erwin and his wife Ate Glaiza and their cute, little daughter Maria arrived, the workshop finally started. The amazing Tolentino family were the ones who sponsored this fun event.

Dance Workshop with Holy Family HomeThirty kids joined us for a dazzling “Dessert” dance workshop! The kids were divided into five groups. Ates and Kuyas were distributed among these kids to get to know them. To break the ice, the three early volunteers showed some of their dance moves while five kids were also chosen to showcase their best dancing talents! Some of the kids are born to dance! It was really fun to see them dance all day! The next activity was the “getting to know you” part. Everyone in the group must answer the following questions: 1. What is your name? 2. What is your favorite dance move? 3. What is your favorite movie?

Before we started the workshop, we played the In-Out game. Every group stood up and held hands. The mechanics are as follows: Each group will be given round strings which will be placed at the floor near their group. If the person is positive on the description told by the host, all persons acquiring it will get inside the circle string and if not, he has to stay outside the circle and hold the string. For example, kuya Harvard said that hairs longer than shoulder length should get inside. Almost all girls, the kids and the Ate’s got inside the string while the boys held the string outside. Another example is whoever wears rubber shoes must get inside. Almost everyone went outside and held the string.

Finally the dance workshop began! Kuya Japox is our dance teacher for the day. He started with a stretching song and also reminded the kids the importance of stretching, so that our body wouldn’t end up being injured. Because he knows the favorite song of the kids, the “Dessert” dance craze was the one he taught.

Everyone was so energetic, having fun and doing their best to dance. The kids were challenged with the dance moves Kuya Japox was teaching. And all were thrilled with the fast, slow, swing, grooves, jumpin’ and freestyle moves. Truly, Holy Family kids have the best and active dancers ever!

Dance Workshop with Holy Family HomeAfter Kuya Japox taught the main song. The kids are up for the battle showdown where they’ll apply the moves they had learned. Every group has to have their leader who would be creating his own moves to the given song where the rest of his groupmates will follow. Amazingly all kids are participative. Group 4 and Group 5 performed the best in this battle. The best part here is that every kid was just having fun dancing with one another.

After the dance craze, the kids were brought to the dining area to eat pancit and pizza! The kids were thankful and began with a prayer. Afterwhich, Kuya Erwin, Ate Glaiza and Maria distributed their school supply gifts to the kids. The kids were happy receiving and the sponsors were joyful in giving.

Lastly we cannot leave without the group photo and the big hugs from the kids and from the Ate’s and Kuya’s. This dance workshop was beyond beautiful and more fulfilling than a dessert!

Dominican Republic Mission Trip

Dominican Republic mission trip (outreach to youth and children through baseball). Please pray that God would give us great favor in ministering to the young people in the DR.

Dominican Republic Citizens

DATES: November 5-13, 2015

Snapshot of the Dominican Republic

Population: There are over 9.2 million people in the Dominican Republic. Over 70% of the population is mulatto, while Haitian and Spanish peoples form the largest minority groups in the country. In addition, over million Dominicans live in the United States – 600,000 in New York City alone.

People: There is much economic disparity, with upper-class individuals having lifestyles comparable to the United States, while the poorer people may not even have access to basic amenities. Most Dominicans who live in rural areas work on farms. Some own small farms and raise their own food. They sell some of what they raise to buy clothing, household goods, and other items. Other Dominican farmers work for wages on large plantations, especially sugar plantations. Many Dominican farmers live in two-room shacks that have thatched roofs and dirt floors. Most city dwellers earn a living as factory workers, as government employees, or by fishing. Many of them live in crowded, old Spanish-style apartment buildings. Dominicans dress in much the same way as people in the United States.

Land Area: Covering 18,703 square miles, the Dominican Republic is approximately the size of Vermont and New Hampshire combined or the province of Nova Scotia.

Major cities: Santo Domingo is the capital with a population of 2.7 million. Santiago de Los Caballeros is the second largest city with 1 million residents. However, nearly 50% percent of the country’s population lives in towns of less than 10,000 people.

Languages: The official language of the Dominican Republic is Spanish, though Dominican Spanish is its own distinct dialect with different slangs and pronunciations than other countries.

Location: Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the north and the Caribbean Sea on the south, the Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola. The West Indies republic shares a common border with Haiti that runs for 193 miles on the D.R.’s western boundary. Located between Puerto Rico and Cuba, the country has a coastline of more than 1,000 miles.

Terrain: Four mountain ranges run almost parallel across the country from east to west. The principal one is the Cordillera Central which crosses the middle of the country. One of the range’s peaks, Pico Duarte (3,087 meters or 10,094 feet above sea level) is the highest point in the Caribbean. The Valley of the Cibao, nestled in the upper central part of the country, is considered the Dominican Republic’s “food basket” and produces fruits, vegetables and sugar cane.

Climate: Ocean currents and year-round trade winds moderate the tropical heat and the temperature varies little with the seasons. At lower elevations, temperatures range from 65 to 95 (18C to 35C) degrees while it is slightly cooler at higher altitudes. Average annual rainfall is 55 inches (140 cm to 180 cm) with two pronounced rainy seasons – the first in May and the second in October.

Government: A representative democracy with three independent branches of government: the executive, legislative and judicial. Elections for congressional, municipal and presidential offices are held simultaneously every four years. The Supreme Court has nine members appointed by the Senate. Each of the 29 provinces is headed by a presidentially appointed governor. Mr. Leonel Fernandez is the current president of the country.

Religions: All religions are tolerated but the majority of the population is considered Roman Catholic which is the state religion.

Industry: With an agriculturally based economy, the most important export crops are sugar, tobacco and coffee. The principal industrial activity is processing agriculture products. Tourism is also a leading source of income in the D.R.

Flag: The Dominican flag is divided into four sections separated by a white cross. Its upper left section is dark blue; the lower left is red. On the right side of the cross, the colors are reversed. The national coat-of-arms appears in the center. It is the only flag is the world that contains a symbol of the Bible.

Culture: The Dominican Republic’s culture blends Spanish, African, and indigenous Taino practices. The fast-paced dance musical styles of merengue and bachata were created in the Dominican Republic. Rock and rap have also become increasingly popular, especially among the youth. Baseball dominates the country’s sports scene, though basketball and boxing are also popular.

Food: Dominican meals generally contain rice, beans, some type of meat, and a small salad. Lunch is the main meal of the day in the Dominican Republic. Another popular dish is sanocho, a stew that uses several kinds of meat. Flan, dulce de leche, rice pudding, and sugarcane are all popular desserts in the country.

Ate Bianca’s Baking Workshop with Mano Amiga

Baking Workshop with Mano Amiga

On a hot weather of April 9, 2014, Ate Bianca Arcega celebrated her birthday with the Mano Amiga children in Western Bicutan, Paranaque. It was another engaging event for kids to think creatively and to learn another important skill.

The volunteers who came are from different walks of life. Most of them are friends of Ate Bianca. There were also students from UST and some walk-in volunteers. There were surprisingly increased number of volunteers than the kids, which is favorable because kids are well taken cared of.

Baking Workshop with Mano AmigaWhen everyone was settled, Kuya Harvard began the event with getting-to-know. Despite the scorching heat of the sun, eagerness and pure joy manifested in the faces of the kids and volunteers as they share each other’s pieces. This was my second time to be here and I noticed that the Mano Amiga kids are always smiling and always eager to learn. No wonder Mano Amiga are known for producing kids who are outstanding academic achievers. It is run by Altius Foundation, an International NGO founded by the Legionaries of Christ which aims to provide education, health and development in over thirteen countries.

Before we even started with the main event which is the baking workshop, there was a special treat for kids. A puppet show was exhibited to the kids. Puppet show is a good way to connect to the kids while making your message or learnings come across. The puppeteers delivered a presentation full of humor that made most of the kids roll in the aisle and at the same time, they displayed a lot values for the kids to learn. One of which is how to properly take care of oneself.

Baking Workshop with Mano Amiga

After that, a game was executed. The game is called “Hula Together. Teams were divided into five. In this game, a certain number of team members will be asked to fit inside the hula hoops. First team to complete the instruction, wins. It was a heart-racing game that both kids and volunteers enjoyed. Everyone is competitive that’s why every team got points. Team 3, however, won in this game.

Baking Workshop with Mano AmigaThen it was time for the much- awaited activity, baking class of Chef Michelle. This is another fun activity that will challenge and develop a child’s imagination. Chef Michelle prepared five desserts for the kids to learn. They were muesli, peanut butter lasagna, chocolate pancake, fruit pizza and peanut butter with cream cheese toasting. The good thing about Chef Michelle is that she adds a twist to her desserts. For instance, as she makes her pancake, she added cups of milk to the chocolate flour mix instead of just putting the usual warm water. After Chef Michelle’s demonstration of her work of art, the kids were able to exercise their creative skills by decorating the desserts with different toppings . Kuya Harvard also called in kids and volunteers who will taste the desserts. It was indeed a fun and memorable experience especially for the kids.

After that, healthy food was served to the kids and volunteers. We also sang a happy birthday to Ate Bianca together with her close friends. She was very happy. We ended the day with a group photo and distribution of give aways.

We are grateful to Ate Bianca and to all the volunteers who participated in this event. Mano Amiga kids are very blessed to have you as their sponsors and they will definitely cherish these moments they have spent with you.

150,000 Children Affected by Lando

Philippine Typhoon Victims

MANILA, Philippines – Humanitarian organization Save the Children has launched an emergency response in areas affected by Typhoon Lando and has committed to stay for three to six months.

In a statement, Ned Olney, country director of Save the Children Philippines, said since Typhoon Lando (international name Koppu) continues to put more children at risk, the humanitarian organization is “very concerned about their safety with severe flooding being reported.”

“We expect that the worst affected families will face prolonged stay in evacuation centers, and this raises our concern, considering such spaces are usually unsuitable for vulnerable children to live in for an extended period of time because of limited hygiene and sanitation facilities,” Olney added.

Yesterday, Save the Children launched an emergency response in various evacuation centers to help around 280,000 people, of whom more than 150,000 are children.

Funded by the United Kingdom, the children’s agency is targeting around 8,000 households in the worst affected locations and will prioritize emergency relief and shelter, education, health and child protection.

The country team is preparing 1,000 relief kits for dispatch to some of the worst affected areas in Aurora province, where Typhoon Lando made landfall.

Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1

“The children’s agency will be sending emergency supplies like tarpaulins to serve as emergency shelter; basic household kits containing kitchen utensils, mosquito nets and sleeping mats; water items, including water purification tablets, and household kits with soap, towels and toothbrush, for the most vulnerable families affected by the typhoon,” it added.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) also expressed concern for children stranded in remote areas in the aftermath of Lando and has appealed for $2.8 million to replenish its supplies.

“UNICEF’s first priority is to ensure children are safe and protected. Following a typhoon, children face risks from contaminated water sources, lack of food, epidemics such as cholera, hypothermia, diarrhea and pneumonia,” UNICEF Philippines Representative Lotta Sylwander said. – With Janvic Mateo, Pia Lee-Brago

Film Showing, Heneral Luna with Pangarap Foundation

Film Showing with Pangarap Foundation

Amidst the wave of superhero movies today, a remarkable local film recently made its way to mainstream cinema. This movie was also about a hero, but a real one who helped shaped the Philippines’ history. ‘Heneral Luna’ was a critically acclaimed film by Jerrold Tarog. To this date, it has continued to draw in viewers while also receiving praises from different sectors of society.

For this reason, U! Happy Events was not going to pass up the chance to bring some teens to see this educational yet outstandingly made movie. 20 kids from Pangarap Foundation in Pasay City, together with their guardians, joined the U! Core Team at Market Market Mall to watch this blockbuster. A handful of volunteers were also present to lend a hand.

Film Showing with Pangarap Foundation

The movie was nothing short of superb. You know you are watching a classic-in-the-making when everyone in the theater reacts to every scene and every turn of events. As the movie ended, it sure left an impression not only on the teens but to everyone present in the theater.

These movies are very few and far between. We are glad we were able to witness it with some young and eager spirits. We hope this sparks an interest in their minds to learn important values from our history. Thank U! to Pangarap Foundation for spending their holiday with us.

Mystery Over £300,000 Donation to Child Brain Cancer Charity

Esten Pederson returned to school after five rounds of treatment

A charity set up to support children with deadly brain disease has received an anonymous £300,000 donation.

Funding Neuro, a Glasgow-based charity set up to support the work of neurosurgeon Professor Steven Gill, set up a crowdfunding page to raise £900,000 to treat 18 children with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) brain tumours.

But chief executive Sharon Kane said she was ‘blown away’ when an anonymous person donated £300,000.

‘We were absolutely blown away when we received the donation,’ she said.

‘It’s very unusual for anyone to make such a substantial one-off contribution.

Professor Gill’s work involves ‘robotic treatment’

‘It’s certainly by far the biggest single amount Funding Neuro has ever received. There was only one caveat to the donation, that it remain anonymous.’

DIPG brain tumours are extremely resistant to chemotherapy. Professor Gill’s work involves ‘robotic treatment’, where drugs are injected directly into the brain.

One of Dr Gill’s current patients, 12-year-old Esten Pedersen Indset from Norway, has returned to school after five rounds of treatment.

His father said: ‘We do realize how fortunate Esten is to be accepted for the treatment in Bristol. The journey has been hard, but also filled with renewed hope.’

Funding Neuro has now raised £600,000 or its £900,000 target.

Ate Te’s Snow White with Project Pearls

Snow White with Project Pearls

An enchanting time awaited the dashing boys and girls of Project Pearls last September 19 at Onstage Greenbelt in Makati. Sponsored by U! President and birthday celebrant, Ate Te, the teens from the Manila-based community organization got premium passes to watch Repertory Philippines’ Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This production was also in partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Philippines, an organization also close to the heart of Ate Te.

Snow White with Project PearlsBefore heading to the theater, the youngsters spent some time first with eager volunteers over dinner at a nearby Jollibee. Yes, the space was limited but it just made for very intimate discussions among the volunteers and teens. After dinner and an ice-breaker game (Bring Me Art), everyone patiently and courteously lined up as we finally made our way to the venue.

The live adaptation of the timeless tale also provided a very interactive presentation to the delight of the kids and volunteers. The cast had the audience ‘yodelling’ at one point and it really got everyone into it.

After the play, the teens got to meet the cast members and even take some pictures. It was truly a great way to conclude the evening.

Our thanks to Ate Te, Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Philippines, Project Pearls and of course, our volunteers. We hope to see more of these wonderful people in our events soon!

10 Ideas to Get Children Involved in Charitable Activities

Children Giving Gifts

As I was running from store to store picking up presents for my family yesterday, I started noticing collection boxes and signs for charities who are in need of donations and volunteers at this special time of year.

That got me to thinking…this might be the first year that all of my children are old enough to really understand the importance of giving.

With that in mind, my youngest two and I talked through charitable ideas that we could do as a family to help others.

Their input was invaluable, as they gave insight into what would be fun for children to do, yet meaningful to them at the same time.

This is a list of 10 ideas that we came up with to get children involved in charitable activities.

1 – Decorating Cookies for Elderly Neighbors –

In keeping with the jolly theme of the season, we decided to turn this fun little task into a small party.

Here’s how: Invite 3 or 4 of your favorite friends and their children to participate and assign each of the families an item to bring.

For example, one can bring jars of sprinkles, while another brings cans of frosting.

Make sure that every family has an assigned item, so that they feel like they are an important part of this project.

The host can supply baked cookies, serving trays, plastic wrap, and a light lunch with drinks for party guests.

Once all of the cookies have been decorated, split up into 2 or 3 groups and deliver the cookies to elderly people that could use a special treat.

2 – Kid’s Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt for Operation Care Package

This worthwhile charity sends warm holiday wishes through care packages to deployed troops.

To ensure that the project really makes a difference, include a large number of people, such as a neighborhood.

To do this: Gather a group of kids and parents from your neighborhood, then divide them up into teams by which street they live on.

Using the Operation Care Package Holiday Wish List, each team runs from house to house asking people if they have items on the list to donate.

To get maximum benefit, fliers can be circulated throughout the neighborhood the week before which include items to donate as well as the pick up date (day of party).

People can even leave bags of goodies on their front porch with a note for you, if they are not planning to be home.

Use the Neighborhood Association, Book Club, Bunco group, Wine Club, and Mom’s group, to spread the word and get people to join in on the scavenger hunt fun, as well.

Tastefully decorated signs and neighborhood newsletters are also a great route to get participation and donations.

Once the items are collected, have Santa make a surprise visit and take pictures with all of the kids.

3 – Decorate a Homemade Christmas Tree for a Nursing Home –

One of my kid’s most memorable Christmas activities was decorating a tree with nothing but handmade decorations.

We made (construction) paper chains, strung popcorn garland, made (construction) paper snowflakes covered in silver glitter, dried gingerbread men and women cookies, and reindeer candy canes.

To put a special spin on this, make these items for a nursing home and take them up one afternoon to decorate their Christmas tree.

You can even take extra supplies and work with the elderly to make additional ornaments, using yours as examples.

Then everyone can decorate the tree together.

Don’t forget to take Christmas cookies and a beautiful poinsettia plant for their living area.

4 – Volunteer at a Holiday Charity Event –

Sometimes it is just impossible to plan a charity project during the season, or even months before.

However, with a little bit of online research or asking around, there are many charity events that would love last minute volunteers.

Don’t let the overwhelming thought of adding another party or project stop your involvement with charities during the holiday season.

In many instances, the work has already been done for you…just show up!

5 – Plan a Neighborhood Toy Drive –

Every year in our neighborhood Santa drives down the streets on a fire engine, while the kids clamor with excitement.

What better way to greet Santa at the street than with a brand new toy in hand for a less fortunate child?

Just pick a charity that you want to donate to…Toys for Tots is a great one to consider, then circulate fliers much like as described in #2 – the Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt idea.

As the child hands the present to Santa, snap a picture, then send it to their parents by email.

Nothing like teaching children the gift of giving, as they give to the very jolly man that has made their Christmases so bright year after year.

6 – Caroling, Candy Canes and Christmas Cards for a Nursing Home –

One day after church or the school’s choir practice, gather a group together to make reindeer candy canesand cards while practicing Christmas carols for a local nursing home visit.

Then, the following week, wear your merriest holiday attire and take your show on the road!

There is just no better way to make an elderly person smile than to have children singing songs while they read warm holiday wishes and enjoy a sweet treat.

Make sure to stop by everyone’s room, though.

Sometimes the people who most need the Christmas spirit are not able to join in the festivities in the main gathering area.

7 – Food Bank Shopping Trip –

This is a wonderfully easy project for a family, but it touches people’s lives in incomprehensible ways.

When I do projects like this, I want to get as much as I possibly can for the money I have budgeted.

If you have a few minutes, cut or print coupons and compare local grocery store’s ads.

Then gather up your family and make an evening or Saturday morning out of it.

Canned and boxed food items that don’t require the addition of many ingredients to complete the dish are generally preferred.

If at all possible, drop off the donated items as a family to the food bank.

This is an invaluable lesson, as most of our children can’t imagine going without a meal.

8 – Adopt-A-Family –

From one family to another, this might be one of the most unforgettable life experiences that will touch both your and your children’s hearts.

Find a family through your school, church, or an online search of reputable charities that is truly in need and will allow your family to personally donate items.

Then do what you can to make their holidays a little brighter.

A very small, lit Christmas tree would be wonderful to have, but if it takes away from what you are able to give them, then only presents and food would be recommended.

Families in need have much different priorities than those who are not.

Name brand toys are probably not even on their Christmas lists.

They will be happy with what you have to give. Give from the heart.

Even ask your extended family for small donations, if they are able to help out.

9 – Christmas Cards for Hospitalized Children –

Making holiday cards full of warm wishes is a perfect project for a class, a grade or even the whole school.

With some basic supplies, children can cheerfully decorate and add personal messages to cards that will help brighten the day for the most deserving of children.

Since sweets are often not allowed in the children’s ward of a hospital, a brightly decorated card from one child to another may just be what they need at this time of year.

If you can gather small stuffed animals in tandem with the card project, that would make the gift even more special.

10 – Make Treats for your Local Ronald McDonald House –

While hospitalized children often can not enjoy homemade treats, their support systems that live in Ronald McDonald Houses across the country welcome them.

After a long, hard day sitting next to their children’s hospital beds, these families return to their home away from home often looking for some glimmer of happiness.

Making trays of homemade treats for these large numbers of families will be much appreciated.

Our family’s Dreamy Christmas Cookies recipe has worked out for us on more than one occasion. You might want to give them a try, too.

By the end of our conversation, my children wanted to participate in each and every activity.

Inspired Note: While that might be quite a bit for my plate during this holiday season, I decided to immediately do one of the simplest projects I could think of.

With a budget set, we ran over to Target and scoured the toy aisles for extremely good deals on great presents.

Target carries a “Let’s Play” brand that is more than reasonably priced for children who would just love to have presents under the tree.

With two very excited kids in the car, we merrily made our way home to find the best place to donate these toys.

I hope that some of these ideas were able to inspire you and your children, as well.

Ate Raquel’s Story Telling Workshop with Quirino Memorial Medical Center

Story Telling Workshop

Cousins, Ate Raquel and Kuya Lohwe always find time to hang out and catch up despite their busy schedules, most of the time over coffee. This year they’re celebrating their 25th birthday and decided to have a break on their usual bash and thought, “why not party with a purpose?” A purpose that is to give back, even in a small way, what God has blessed them with over the years.

Story Telling WorkshopIt wasn’t a typical gathering, last September 27, 2015, for both agreed to celebrate their special day by spending their time with family, friends together with 25 kids from Quirino Memorial Medical Center and their guardians.

The event was one of the 5 events we had that day and was led by one of our officers, Ate Amy. The volunteers introduced themselves by writing their names with their bodies. Laughter surrounded the place. We had games before our main activity for the volunteers to get to know the kids. They actively participated in the story telling workshop where Ate Dyaly taught them and the volunteers the right way of reading and expressively tell a story with the “Ang Barumbadong Bus”. It was a heartwarming scene, seeing the children’s happy faces wearing beautiful smiles despite their battle against their illnesses. The kids attentively listened as their ate’s and kuya’s read stories to them.

Story Telling Workshop

After all the activities, it was time to eat. Volunteers distributed our snacks with a surprise treat while ate Raquel and kuya Lohwe distributed their gifts for the kids. Like any celebration, we were having fun but this has to somehow end for we couldn’t party all day because the kids were getting tired and have to rest to get their energies back. They went back to their respective wards while the volunteers stayed. We ended the event by surprising our celebrants with a birthday cake!

What a fulfilling day, knowing that somehow you had the chance to make someone happy and to get the volunteers experience this kind of love and appreciation these kids could give. Hearing the words, “Salamat, napasaya ninyo ang anak ko.” Sweet and uplifting, definitely conclude the success of this event. Thank you to our volunteers for having the time to celebrate the mark of ate Raquel and kuya lohwe’s 25th year of life. According to them, this was surely not their last but the beginning of a grateful journey of paying it forward.
