'Mama, Mama,' shouts MC excitedly.
'Do you know that RTL (a local tv station) is collecting old yet still usable things to be given to poor kids all over the world?' she said. 'We could send those toys that IC and I dont want anymore.'
And then she stopped and added in deep thought, 'of course, those toys that dont function anymore we could send to the other poor kids who might still want them despite them being broken.'
I am happy that MC is really very open when it comes to sharing -- to being charitable. IC, too. I guess it helped when we exposed them to the Bahay Kalinga Foundation during out last visit to the Philippines this 2008. And I am grateful for Bahay Kalinga for a very warm welcome.
And we encourage them, too. In fact, in one corner of our storeroom is a big box where they place all their 'dont want anymore' toys and clothes for the poor kids. When that box is full, then it is time to send them to their favorite charity house in the Philippines, the Bahay Kalinga. It is a charity house that takes care of girls from ages 0-18.
They say those girls are their playmates, therefore, they would share their things to them. After all, as MC said, 'sharing is fun.'
