YesPinoy Turned 5 and Project 888

Last August 21 YesPinoy turned 5 years old! I would have loved to be there at the beginning, but seeing it now is such a blessing. We teamed up with GMA Network and Angeles University Foundation to make it an even more memorable event. AUF held a Media Congress two years ago, and always wanted…

Spending the morning with the kids from Smile Train :-)

I love working for a foundation that really helps the people who need help the most. I think I have been lucky in life to be employed in such groups. And YesPinoy is no different. We spent some time organizing the anniversary celebration itself, but more than an event, we wanted there to be something…

Drenched in Estancia

We came from the Balasan event and went straight to Estancia Central School. This was a bigger event because this is the school we in YesPinoy adopted after Typhoon Yolanda. We are replacing all their 3,000 school chairs, and are constructing a school building as well. We brought along The Steps Project to give slippers…

Sweaty and Hot in Balasan

It was a fun-and-work-filled 2 days in Iloilo last week for the YesPinoy team. We flew to Roxas on Thursday at 10am. Flight wasn’t delayed. And I saw beside Army Navy that Jamba Juice and Krispy Kreme are opening! Terminal 3 lower gates is the place to be! :-) Got to Roxas by 11am, and…

One Chair, One Child

OPARR and Rotary Partner with YesPinoy

It was a good Tuesday spent with partners of YesPinoy. Uro, Kayjay and I went to Bonifacio Global City to meet with the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery (OPARR). They are coordinating the relief effort across all provinces. The relief effort needed after the onslaught of Yolanda. I have to admit…

YesPinoy in Balasan and Estancia, Iloilo

YesPinoy has continuing efforts in helping Estancia Central School in Iloilo. I went last week to check on our projects there. I took the 10:00am Cebu Pacific flight to Roxas City, Capiz which is nearer to Estancia than if I was to fly in via Iloilo City. There is only one flight though. Got to…
