Planning on how to celebrate this month of love? Worry no more! We’ve got you covered, whatever your love language is.
ACTS OF SERVICE: Feed the Hungry
What better way to serve than to feed the hungry and the homeless?
Karinderia ni Mang Urot has been consistently providing food for the hungry and the homeless since 2012. If this sounds like your cup of tea, come and join them in preparing and distributing food.
QUALITY TIME: Play with Children
Did you know that you can still teach and play with kids in the comforts of your home?
Binhi English Literacy Foundation, Inc., and Tulong Karunungan are one of the many Non-Profit Organizations that are currently accepting volunteers for their virtual learning sessions. Their goal is to bring hope to children with cancer and chronic illnesses. Spend quality time with these kids and be part of that goal.
PHYSICAL TOUCH: Play with Furbabies
Don’t you agree that one of the most painful things in this world is to be abandoned?
In this month of love, let’s not forget the shelter animals who are still waiting for their forever homes. Many of them are products of neglect and abuse. So, if you can, visit your nearby animal shelters and play with them. Remind them how a loving touch feels like.
WORDS OF AFFIRMATION: Design a Poster
What have you done for mother nature recently?
If you love nature and have the talent for poster-making, then it’s definitely your time to shine. Nature Awareness and Conservation Club Inc. is looking for volunteers who can design e-posters to promote tree planting and environment conservation. In this age of social media, let your posters do the talking. Alternatively, you can also help this organization reach wider audience by sharing their posts on social media.
GIFT-GIVING: Donate to Charity
Do you remember that Cornetto ad that says “Hanggang saan aabot ang bente mo?”
Well, if you donate it to charity, then it will go a long way. Yes, it’s a small amount, but the collective efforts of volunteers allow charity organizations to sustain their activities and help more people. That said, if you have extra cash you want to share—no matter how small it is—remember that it will be a valuable gift to those who have none.
