Why a First-World Philippines is just one tiny RIPPLE away

“The smallest good deed is worth a thousand grand intentions”


This post may have a LIFE-CHANGING impact.


Christmas is just around the corner and you are probably finalizing or just starting (like me) your shopping.


And I think you’ll agree with me that it is soooooooooooooo crowded everywhere! Plus, it’s so hard to get around with the traffic and everything, right?


And everything seems to get more and more EXPENSIVE.


Here are some of the things that might appear on a Christmas wish list:

  • That designer shirt/blouse you have been EYEING : P4,000
  • The newest smartphone that you just MUST have : P15,000
  • Apple Ipad 2 : P25,000
  • Hope and food for an ENTIRE family : P1,000


Whoa! whoa! whoa! back up there for a minute…


Hope and food for an ENTIRE family : P1,000


You read that right, my friend. You have the POWER to make an entire family fed and happy for this coming Noche Buena for just P1,000 through World Vision’s Noche Buena Gift program.


You don’t have to be Bill Gates or Brad Pitt or somebody super rich and popular to give back. You have enormous influence in your hands to help our poorer countrymen and aid the push for progress in the Philippines.


But my contribution is like a drop in the ocean. It could hardly bring any impact, right?


My friend your SMALL drop in the ocean creates a RIPPLE EFFECT.




And that ripple effect :

  • Provides a bountiful meal for poor families on Christmas Eve.
  • Brings together the entire village in a meaningful get-together and celebration of Jesus’ birth.
  • Gives simple presents to children such as new slippers or a Spiderman shirt.
  • And more importantly… HOPE that there is a brighter future ahead and the motivation to make this future a reality.


And that is just ONE ripple.


Imagine hundreds or even thousands of people like you dropping their share and creating one ripple after another. Touching more and more lives. And whether you like it or not…




In the 5 years or so that I have participated in World Vision’s child sponsorship program, I have been blessed in so many ways and some of them have been totally life-changing!


Don’t get me wrong, I did not to this for any sort of return. I did not even notice the benefits while it was happening. It was during moments of solitude that I realize the blessings I have received because of giving.


By helping alleviate hunger and poverty, we are empowering ourselves to create change. And with patience and perseverance, we may finally say that a First World Philippines is in sight.


And with that, I just want to ask you…
