Buy A Kid A Meal

The Gift of Giving

What better time to give out food and smiles than the holiday season! A couple of best friends have this this tradition of paying it forward by feeding children. This thanksgiving program fed almost a hundred children thanks to the kindhearted people who organized and donated. We asked Kimberly Damlani why:

There is joy in giving.  When I launched the #20PayItForwardPH movement, the goal was to allow friends & volunteers to pool their resources to help others.  For as low as 20 pesos, you can start giving and paying it forward.❤

I have been doing this on my own for quite sometime. But alone, you can only accomplish so much. Together, you can do so much more. 

There’s Chinese saying that goes: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

In a nutshell, joyful giving is living a life with purpose and meaning. We give because doing so makes us happy.

Along with Kim, this program is co-organized by Abigail, Lemuel, Albert. This is was not sponsored by Jollibee SM Cebu but the manager was kind enough to lend the venue for free.

Special thanks to the donors who made this happen:  Joe, Flor & Noel, Kimuel, Nezreen, Chichai & R-jhun, Anonymous, Ate Kuletz, JK, Teena, Mr. Bruce Wayne,  Maria Mercedes,  Joey, Soy, Edward & best friend.

The kindhearted people who volunteered for this program are Mary Cris, Ayra, Eula, Jenelyn, Patrick
