A Bookmark and a Wristband

    For the past weekends, a friend and I were into food. Like we ate as if there's no tomorrow.  We just had rice meal and then we suddenly thought of eating pizza. Wow! That's one hell of carbohydrates. What a heavy meal for us.

    One pizza resto became our favorite hang out when we feel like we wanted to have a full stomach. Hahaha! We only wanted to be satisfied when we eat.

    Upon eating, we suddenly noticed that there is a campaign 'We Feed for Peace'. You've got to buy a bookmark for Php20, a wristband for Php40 or both the bookmark and wristband for Php50 and the money will go especially to the children in Mindanao who were greatly affected by the ongoing war. 

    We thought of buying these items to help these children. We are lucky that we can eat 3 meals everyday and also get a chance to savor foods not usually served at home.   

    Since I love reading, I opted for the bookmark while Dorris wanted to have the wristband. Our frugality struck again and we choose to buy both for Php50 and we get Php10 less for the two items. 

    We are proud of what we did. We showed what we bought to our friends and tell them what we did. Most of them were encouraged to do the same thing. We eventually became advocates of the campaign.

    'We Feed for Peace.' I hope this will serve as an inspiration. Even a small deed can be helpful when done by a number of persons.
