This is the way to one of the earth's heavens. Three luxury cars, and a dump truck, all on its way towards being Santa Clauses!
It has been in my heart to serve the people of my land, and to give what is there to share, and to teach my kids to share what they also have.
What's best is that, we were invited by the Rotary Club of Polomolok to join them in their gift-giving also in Purok Palakasam, in Polomolok. So before we proceeded to Kinilis, we went with the Rotary Club to Palakasam and deliver their gifts.
Giving this bag filled with love, RC Polomolok's project tagged as "Shoebox Full of Love" is on their 6th year and we bloggers, joining them is a plus point, an extraordinary chance.

It is but a pleasure to have the gifts delivered to them, I was teary-eyed when I was asked to speak in behalf of the bloggers about the project since I was the one who facilitated everything for this gift-giving but the bloggers were able to put in their best effort to help. I could not contain my tears, and they just flowed because I was too overjoyed that some people have genuine hearts to consider the needs of their fellows, and generous enough to share.
After the gift-giving, the community in Palakasam had a feeding session where they served us the best arroz caldo I have ever tasted using their harvest of organic rice and native chicken.
But of course, the generosity didn't end there. We proceeded to where we will hold the Medical-Dental Mission organized by the RC Polomolok, and with us delivering gifts as well to the community of Kinilis. The treacherous road and the heat of the burning sun did not stop us from moving forward, and even with the "new luxury cars" the Rotarians drove, that did not stop them nor made them turn back from being good and generous people.
This time, being my third to go up to Kinilis and our second as SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers, we have with us gifts, used clothings and food for the children, just in time for their Christmas party. Rosilie and I donated used clothings and bags, Brother Vince donated school supplies, Donna Mae donated sandwiches, Nanardz gave 5 boxes of tetra pack juices, Rabsky gave his old pencils and the rest gave their precious time and energy to go with us.
The Rotarians, together with Interact were there to help us, and conducted their Medical-Dental Mission as well, their part in sharing their love to the indigenous people of the town.
What excited me the most is that I brought my son, Biboy, to the mountains. I wish that he'd learn giving value on the things he has right now, and share what extra he has. I wanted him to learn to share to others especially the most needy. The kids in Kinilis were more than happy to receive even just a piece of candy, because it's seldom that they eat candies.
We went home as happy bloggers and our hearts were filled with hope, that soon, other people would follow what we have started, and in the future, there will be more things to share with them.
SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers and Rotary Club of Polomolok 101, I am so proud of you! Keep up the good work!
