Bright Start Hero Launches Operation Webster

“Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.” ~ Maya Angelou

What better way to celebrate your birthday than to launch an outreach project for the children? One of our Bright Start Heroes, Wella Crowder (Virginia, USA), did just that!

Project Sunshine: A Year That Was

"God will make a way when there seems to be no way." ~ Don Moen

Today November 8, 2014, we commemorate the anniversary of typhoon Yolanda. We say a prayer for those who perished, for those who lost their loved ones, for those who lost their homes and schools, and for survivors who continue to rebuild their communities.

We take a look back at Project Sunshine. This was our special project for one of the most vulnerable population whenever natural disasters strike --- the children.

Project Sunshine Update #23: Revisiting Medellin

“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” ― Steve Maraboli

Through the efforts of our volunteers, the family of Margie and Carlos Librero, the students of Canhabagat Day Care Center and Don Virgilio Day Care received crayons, pencils, toys and clothing donated by Bright Start Heroes --- Rizzy Montecillo and family (New York), Lyra Malapitan and family (Edmonton, Canada), and Green family (Texas).

Keeping Promises

Last August 29, 2014, we visited Lahug Elementary School (SPED) and did the first set of occupational therapy (OT) assessments. This would provide the SPED teacher with information and concrete suggestions on the students' visual-motor and handwriting skills. We also distributed toiletries as part of promoting Life Skills (Grooming) to the students. We would like to thank the donors, Jeanette and Lee Go. You've made a lot of children smile!

Color-My-World Events Part 2

It is not not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do. ~ Moliere

Color-My-World Events Part 1

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others. ~ Pericles

Project Sunshine Update #22: Revisiting Baybay and Palompon (Leyte)

Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~ Norman MacEwan

School year 2014-2015 has begun and we wanted to wish our friends in Baybay and Palompon a bright year ahead by giving school supplies.

Summer 2014: Shining Bright

A number of children from different areas in Cebu had one Bright Summer. They received toys, clothes, food, and school supplies from our Bright Start Heroes from Edmonton (Canada), Oregon and Texas (USA).

Thank you very much on behalf of the children and their families. May you continue to let God's light shine through you!

Project Sunshine Update #21. Newly repaired Grade 1 Classroom at Paypay Elementary School (Bogo City, Cebu)

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. Victor Hugo (Les Miserables)

No stopping the summer heat as well as Project Sunshine! Only a month more to go and the students will be marching back to their classrooms. We are excited for the Grade 1 students at Paypay Elementary School to see their newly repaired classroom.
