Donate Books to the Sta. Teresa National High School in Guimaras
I received an e-mail from my UP MBA batchmate, Anna Rojas. She was calling on us to donate books to the Sta. Teresa National High School in Guimaras.
A small library room had been donated to the school but at present, the library has no books. Anna and her group of Ateneo Faculty are thus calling on concerned individuals to make February a true month of love by sharing your love for reading and learning with others.
Different types of reading and teaching materials are welcome: encyclopedias, old books and magazines, educational audio and/or visual materials for as long as they are decent and still usable. Donations need not be limited to those which can be used by high school students. Reading material for other age groups can be sent to day care centers, grade schools, and high schools in the neighboring towns. College books are also welcome for the continuing education of the teachers.
Interested parties may drop their donations in the box just inside the Rizal Library (at the Ateneo) main door from February 3-28, 2007. Please sign your name and items donated in the log sheet with the guards in the Library so the group can acknowledge your donation. For queries and requests for pick up of donations, you may text or call 0915 409 1047 and/or 0922 888 3828.
Please do your share in helping out our fellow Filipinos in the Sta. Teresa National High School in Guimaras. If you are abroad, doing well, and happen to be from Guimaras, you may want to get involved in this project too in some way.
As a way of ending this appeal, I share with you Anna's personal note in the e-mail that she sent out. She says it best. I am glad to see that in our own little ways, ordinary individuals are taking action to help make lives better for our fellow Filipinos:
"Last December 2006, I had the chance to finally visit the town in Guimaras of the wonderful ladies who took care of me during my childhood years. After about 30 years of dreaming of going there, I was finally able to visit them at their homes & communities in Sta. Teresa, Guimaras.
We eagerly look forward to your support for our little project. Do feel free to share this email with others who might be willing to help too.
Now isn't this much better to listen to or read than all those political ads? If you happen to get in touch with Anna after reading this, please let her know that you learned about this project from viloria.com
Thanks in advance for your generosity and concern. =) The Lord will bless you a hundredfold.
