As you and the whole world already know by now, the Philippines has recently been stricken by tragedies one after the other. First, it was the 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Bohol and Cebu which literally brought structures down to the ground and into pieces. Then, just last Friday, we were hit by supertyphoon Yolanda (international name “Haiyan”) which again devastated towns, especially in Leyte. These affected areas are all nearby each other in the Visayas and the earthquake victims haven’t even recovered yet from their tragedy and then, came, I would say, an even more destructive force of nature. See map here (for the earthquake) and here (for the supertyphoon).
Even before these natural calamities came, Sew Easy For Kids was already planning and preparing for their upcoming bazaar on Nov. 23-24 by Woodrose School. We were all excited and looking forward to this fun and new, learning experience for the kids. After all, all we needed was SCRAP FABRIC and extra time to sew! A first for many, if not all of us. When the earthquake happened, we then collectively decided to donate proceeds of our sales to the earthquake victims. A BIG portion of it!
The kids have been extra busy SEWING MORE and MORE so that we could GIVE MORE! Not only to the earthquake victims but now, to the supertyphoon victims, too! Needless to say, the kids have been SEWING with their HANDS and HEARTS!
We are grateful and blessed to have been given this opportunity to share whatever and however we can to our fellow Filipinos in dire need. If you think that you cannot help much or don’t know how to help, think again. YOU CAN HELP! YOU CAN!
