The Making of an Outreach

Less than a week from now, our group, JGC, will be having our 1st Christmas Outreach. Ngayon palang, I wanna share how much I learned from this experience. It's been priceless for me.

..2 weeks ago, I felt helpless. I learned na iba pala yung WILLING lang sa DEDICATED to make this happen. I got pressured kasi I feel like Im doing it on my own - with a very little effort on my friends' part. I was kinda disappointed. As if naman ginusto ko to mag-isa? As far as I remember, lahat kasi kami nagpledge.. That's how I felt. They cant blame me.. At that point, I said to myself, hindi pala masaya mag-organize.. 0_o

After a while I sought help from some outreach organizers. They made me realized na mali pala yun. I was wrong to expect that everyone can give the same efforts as Im giving. Nawawala na kasi yung sense of VOLUNTEERISM kung maya't maya ako nagro-roll call about their solicitations or any donations. It is supposed to be a fun activity for our group. After all, this is all about VOLUNTEERING, and not WORK. So now, I accepted the fact that everyone has priorities, and I just need to be thankful for whatever help they can share. Happy na ko ulit. And very excited! =)


On the other hand, Im so overwhelmed with the support I received from my friends, specially from the blogosphere and online buddies - mind you, I have never met these people at all. And along this journey, I met a lot of very kind hearted people. This is the best part.


Now let me share you some of the things that we'll give the kids this Sunday..

pangarap na Jollibee Kiddie Party

Actually there's a lot more! Pero secret muna yung iba.
Now, binabawi ko na yung sinabi ko before.. Masaya pala magprepare ng isang outreach! =)

Maraming salamat sa nagsponsor ng kids at nagdonate in any form they can give. Special mention sa couple who I met recently. Grabe, Im so overwhelmed.

-----> Im officially closing our solicitation. Super super quota na.
and I wont be accepting anymore volunteers too. Quota na din.

Chyng, nahiya ako bigla sa nabigay ko... :( Pero maigi ng nakatulong kesa wala di ba? May pahabol akong cash donation kasama nung clothes, dagdag mo na lang din kasi maliit lang yung nakayanan ko. Hope I can join you that day but duty calls. Di bale this won't be the last naman di ba? I won't promise anything basta pag meron uli.

Ngayon pa lang, i-congratulate na kita for a job well done!

Mas masaya yan sa Sunday, I assure you. Kakaibang feeling knowing that we will all be able to make orphans happy kahit sa isang araw lang.

God bless you Chyng!

See you on Sunday!

Me and my college friends are also doing an outreach pero since hindi available yung foundation this month, sa January na lang kami pupunta sa kanila. sana ganito rin karami mabigay namin sa kids! :D

Chyng, this is wonderful. I now know I can give a veritable feast (at Jollibee) to thirty children for 100 USD. I was pleased to see all the care packages you were able to acquire. This is a splendid effort

higit sa mga regalong inyong hatid, ang makasama kayo ng mga musmos ay sapat na upang mapintahan ang kanilang mga mumunting labi ng kagalakan. Ur a wonderful woman.

Goodluck! Super Congratz in Advance!

Allen said...

pagpalain ka ate chyng. :)

dong ho said...

hooray to your efforts! im impressed as early as the time when you were discussing me about this.

of course part of it comes from the generosity of the people yet a good heart to start something is special.

congratulations!

kg said...

chyng! super dami na nito! as in!

may i suggest something? hope you don't mind. i think this is more, super more, than enough for your party. you might want to give some goods to other kids who are not part of the orphanage, like some street children, who will likely receive nothing. tutal mukhang super dami ng goods mo. :) just a thought though. :)

PS...nanliit ako bigla sa binigay ko. he he! so many people are king-hearted! God bless you chyng!

k said...

i meant kind-hearted! he he!

pusang kalye said...

naimagine ko na nag so-sort ka ng mga yan and it must be overwhelming. ngyn palang I am saying I am happy for you na magawa mo to. ibang level. maven level kana. haha. seriously. syang di ako makakasama---and I mean tagal ko na sinabi na di ako makaksama. pero good luck sa Sunday--yun na talaga ng big day. God bless you Chyng.
