Nicaela Nicasio - Nic, Nica or Ela as people call me, turning 26 this year. And I have something to share..
YEZZZ it's my birthday this 11th of December! And I have a small wish for this special day and i am hoping you can help me achieve it?
I have been celebrating my birthday for the past years on fancy brunch with friends, staying in hotels, treating myself on a shopping spree - spending for myself to celebrate another year of life. I usually would also receive gifts, flowers and chocolates that I of course truly appreciate with my whole heart! Hey don't get me wrong, it is utterly fun! But you know what, every year as we get older, we find ourselves searching for our real purpose, why have we been granted another year of blessings and opportunities – so guess what? I found my purpose this year!
Join me as I raise funds for my chosen charities -Project Pearl, Philippines - An NGO based in Tondo, Manila, helping unfortunate children to receive school supplies, supplementary vitamins and feed them for the day. The team also conducts film showing and story-telling on weekends, accompanied by free basic medical check-up for the youngsters. And lastly - (PAWS) Phillippine Animal WelfareSociety based in Quezon City Philippines, shelter for abandoned, sick and deprived animals. The shelter also has animal cemetery and caters a recovery place for animals saved from dog fights, slaughter houses, etc. - Timely, it's the season of sharing and caring thus I am challenging myself, my family and friends to help me grant 200 children gifts and holiday meals this New Year and supporting PAWS to their daily necessities. (Photos are from our recent activity with the organizations.)
This year, I ask you guys to celebrate my birthday by sharing a piece of yourself and ending the year with a pure joy of putting smile into other people’s faces.
I really want to do this not only to help the less fortunate but to share my realization on how much money we spend on a single day when in fact our birthdays should be a reminder to us how fortunate we are all to have reach this age and another year of chances for us to share with other people.
The fund raising will run from 20th November till 15th December, 2018 – I’m flying to the Philippines on the 27th December and the Project Pearl event will be on 5th January, 2018. PAWS will receive their necessities on the same day. Pictures and acknowledgement will be posted online and of course will be shared to all donors for you to see how your help have gone a long way.
