Pay it forward…

Being good is innate in us, Filipinos.  I believe that.  I think we’re more attached to others compared to how other races are.  We tend to accept everyone as our family hence, the attachment.  It is in our nature be involved  to other people’s problems or challenges… although sometimes, to a fault already.  I have encountered one organization that highlights this goodness in us.

It’s VSO Bahaginan.  I know there are a lot of NGOs out there but what I like about the organization is it brings out the best in us.

Filipinos, by nature, are kindhearted, and that is clearly the rationale why the term bayanihan was coined.  Bayanihan or the spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective has been witnessed in multiple occasions and through time.  It is from this standpoint that VSO Bahaginan, a development NGO that works to fight poverty through various volunteering programs , hopes to further spur the flame of bayanihan especially in making a positive change in the world we live in.

The organization’s development approach is to bring people together to share skills, build capacity, promote national and international understanding and action to create lasting change.  VSO Bahaginan invests in people at the community level, ensuring that every peso spent on their development programs spark a chain reaction.  It has developed a series of videos that aim to entice both individuals and organizations to make that first step to positive change.

The first two videos dubbed as “Chain Reaction” and “Icons” both focus on the core value of VSO, which is volunteering.  The videos were taken from two different perspectives: how one can make a difference through volunteering and the experiences and benefits of volunteering.

Chain Reaction:

VSO Bahaginan brings people with the skills and the heart for development with the communities that need them the most.  Each action, each advocacy, each social work starts with volunteering. When one volunteers, it changes lives.

VSO Bahaginan believes in the beauty of volunteering. This video shows how our volunteers contributed to changing lives in the communities they have worked with – Leo Cabasag developed a Sign Language module for the children in Cebu, James Zamora taught Cotabato farmers how to improve their civet coffee production and Dr. Allan Sande is now serving in Itbayat, Batanes as its community doctor.  They shared their gifts, made things better and changed people’s lives.

Change can start with you, right here, right now.  Make that lasting ripple effect in the society.  Donate to VSO at www.vsobahaginan.org/donate and start your chain reaction now.


VSO Bahaginan promotes volunteerism through proactively linking with communities, organizations, government and anyone who has the heart and desire to effect positive change. Through the voices of these volunteering icons, VSO Bahaginan aims to spark a volunteerism revolution in the country.

VSO Bahaginan produced the Icons videos—a series of video clips featuring the top volunteering icons in the Philippines talking about their experiences and their reasons for volunteering their time, talents and treasures.

And so it begins…

I’m talking about Starbucks’ annual promo.

For several years now, this has been the most anticipated quest for many – the pursuit to complete those stickers! This year, 17 stickers are required for you to get that limited edition planner. Personally, it already became a tradition for me to go through the process and acquire their yearly planner.  I am  an avid coffee drinker.  Every day I pass by Starbucks to get my daily dose of caramel macchiato, so why not make it useful, right? I was telling my friend, ‘I am giving myself 20 days to complete this.’ And then I will proceed to complete her promo card hehe

The first drink that I got was their Christmas red cup Toffee Nut latte drink. I’m thinking of trying their Peppermint Mocha and the Praline Mocha but I seem to remember these drinks to be strong, but I’m not sure.  I am more into the sweet and milky taste for my coffee.
