Make a Kid Smile – Poblacion, Talisay

Yesterday, I got the chance to meet the wonderful kids in Poblacion, Talisay through Liv, the driving force behind The Lugaw Project.

I was amazed watching these kids pray for God’s grace before their special boodle fight, how they eat with so much gusto and how they actively clean up afterwards. While the others were cleaning, the rest help out in their Christmas Bazaar. One thing you appreciate from kids is their sincerity. You can truly see in their eyes if they enjoyed what they are doing. And by their smiles you can tell that they did all these out of pure love for one another and for TLP. Thanks to the leadership of the kind-hearted, Liv Campo 🙂

That’s why when I learned about the Christmas Bazaar, I prepared some hotdogs for the kids because I’m pretty sure they love hotdogs! Kids are truly instruments of telling you to appreciate the simple things in life. Boodle fight pa lang, enjoy na kaayo sila. I never heard them complaining about the food but all words of gratitude. That sure melted my heart. Two simple words which we adults sometimes forget to say to a person who did something nice to us — THANK YOU.



Yesterday was all about GRATITUDE.


I am grateful to have met Liv whose compassionate service to these kids is worth emulating. I am grateful for the kids who have shown me to still appreciate what we have even we have less in life. And I am grateful for my sister who took care of the hotdogs and the transportation, Vivian & Irene for helping me with the food, Tonton for driving us to Talisay and Uly for always supporting me every step of the way.


Another beautiful day worth remembering because we made a lot of kids smile in Poblacion, Talisay ☺️
