Irregardless of age, financial status or gender, everyone can share something for those who don't have enough.
As a rookie dad, I wanted Amanda to learn the value of living not just for herself but to have the genuine concern of loving others. I believe that it's one of the ways to live life to the full. And hopefully starting her young even if it seems that she doesn't understand is a way to expose her that not all kids experience the same blessings as what she has and that it's perfectly ok to aim to have more than enough blessings so that she can share them to others.
So starting on her first birthday, even though she's just barely walking, we coordinated with our SFC brothers and sisters serving in Caliwag to celebrate a simple birthday with our kids there. The same went on last year and on Champee's third birthday this year, it was pretty amazing since she's able to participate in some of the activities already.
Three things I've observed:
I would like to honor the brothers and sisters who helped us with Champee's birthday at Caliwag: Jhoan, Vince, Julius, Dave, Fidel, Sarah, Zaldy, Bojo, Tita Dorie, Tonton, and Jack hoping that someday, Champee will also get the same passion for serving underprivileged kids
