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!
