Waiting For A Home

I just had the opportunity to finally volunteer at a dog pound this morning. Seeing more and more dogs left abandoned by their past owners, I chose to volunteer for Justice for Dogs at the Pasig City Pound. There were about 80+ dogs currently in the pound. The moment we arrived everyone of them started barking. I brought with me my one sack donation of dog food and wish I had bought more because we finished almost all of it when we fed the dogs. They eat only once a day because of the lack of volunteers and people to take care of the pound. Food is also quickly running low. Imagine having to feed 80+ dogs everyday, equivalent to almost one sack of dog food. I provided links by the end of this post if you’re interested in donating πŸ™‚

As I was taking photos, I couldn’t help but get teary-eyed. Just seeing these poor dogs wait for someone to adopt them made me quite emotional. I have dogs of my own too, and I promise you that you’d want to hug yours when you get home.

Some of these dogs were surrendered by their past owners and some were left abandoned. If only I had a huge house and was capable of accommodating more dogs into our family, i’d save them by adopting.

All of these dogs are up for adoption! They are also capable of the same love and loyalty like the dogs you get from pet stores if you give them the proper guidance and be a responsible owner. I hope this post also raises awareness. I’m looking forward to volunteer again and to spend more time with the dogs!

They are open to volunteers and donations (Paypal and Bank deposit). You too can save these dogs! πŸ™‚

A Time To Give Back

Last December 11, I did an outreach program for the cancer patients of the Philippine Children’s Medical Center. It was my first time doing an outreach like this and I wish I prepared more. Due to a misunderstanding about the program flow, we did not have someone to host. I was already pondering before on getting a magician for the kids. We experienced a few problems along the way but it still turned out great.

We set up a registration booth and my friend Rhazel was kind enough to help with this event.

We held games before the meal time started.

I had mini board games ready for prizes and I’m glad that everyone enjoyed.

After eating, we gave out lootbags from Me, Rachelle and Rhazel. We also visited the ward patients, giving them gifts personally.

Two hours of gift giving and bringing smiles to the patients of PCMC was worth it πŸ™‚ It’s nice to give back to people who are in need. I hope more people do so too.

On my first visit in PCMC, I met an awesome kid named Van Ryan. He is 12-years old, a very nice lad and can sing beautifully. He came by the outreach and I was so happy he still remembers me.

This was just the start. I wish I could do more outreach programs in the future but this time with a few more volunteers. Thank you to the Philippine Children’s Medical Center for letting us have this event and sharing what we have to those who need it more.

This Song Saved My Life

What a great way to start off the year with Simple Plan’s concert. It’s the 2nd time that I’ve seen them. The first one was with New Found Glory. Me and Jackie got media coverage passes which also allowed me to use my SLR. That was my camera’s first actual battle. Singing to their songs, Jumping and taking pictures at the same time was hard. Good thing I was at the barricade on the left side and believe me my camera was really heavy but It was all worth it. I had fun. It was also my last concert on being 17 lol my birthday is next week omfg

Here are the shots I took. I’m kinda proud of them.

I gotta say that Simple Plan also played a big role in my life. Their songs helped me too. I love this band for trying to connect to their fans with their songs. The second time around, they still know how to put up an awesome concert.
