iLearners' Brighter Future for Kaluangan

It was sunny Sunday as my friends and I assemble at Starbucks Ayala. Waiting for other members to arrive, I had time to know new iLearn volunteers over a Grande Toffee Nut Frap. With barely an hour sleep packing school supplies with Greg and Shake, I drove up to Transcentral Highway to the Municipality of Asturias. It was November 15, 2009, we turned off the AC and opened the windows and felt the fresh mountain breeze with our hands. There were less cars on the road, thanks to Pacquiao and Cotto Match!

After a 90minute drive, we finally arrived at Asturias! The dump truck we borrowed from Aturias Vice Mayor Joel Dumdum was waiting for us there to transport 100 grocery packs and school supplies to Kaluangan.

iLearners' mission to eliminate rural illiteracy may be impossible but if all of us would try and help, at least there's progress. Instead of ranting about our nation's problems, why don't we do something about it?

iLearners officers and board of trustees would like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors who continuously supports the group's cause! And "Brighter Future for Kaluangan" was a result of the prize we won at ABS CBN's Kapamilya Winner Ka Gameshow wherein we raised 30,000php for iLearners' Cause! Thank you so much to ABS CBN! Inline with that, we handed a Certificate of Appreciation to Dra. Christine Fernandez, one of the hosts of the gameshow. Grocery packs were donations by our members and volunteers.

In behalf of iLearners Inc., I would like to thank everyone who helped, donated and took part in every iLearners Activity! You guys give the kids from rural Cebu a chance for a better tomorrow!

Starbucks 2010 Planner Promo

Just completed the Starbucks Sticker Card and redeemed my 2010 Starbucks Planner! weeeee

To get the free Starbucks planner, one needs 9 Starbucks Holiday Featured Beverage Stickers by ordering hot, iced or Frappuccino DARK CHERRY MOCHA, TOFFEE NUT LATTE AND PEPPERMINT MOCHA and 8 Starbucks Beverage Sticker. Ordering bottled water, fruit juices and bottled beverage will not get you a sticker. That's a total of 17 stickers!

I chose to get the coffee grinder design with a shiny rough texture since most of my friends are getting the velvety coffee bean design. hehehe. Unlike before, the planner does not have a pen included but there are 6 different coupons inserted at the last page of the planner.

For me, 2010 Starbucks planner is better than this year's planner. Though the writing pages of the 2010 planner is vertical and does not have horizontal lines as guide when you write, design wise, it's way better than the ordinary cover of this year's(2009) planner.
