These are two words that always stay in my mind, words that help me push myself beyond my comfort zone.
I can’t remember how or when it started, but I always had this strong desire to open up opportunities for other people to be a blessing, and be blessed in return.
Maybe because for almost 5 years, I thought that my heart to give wasn’t enough if my financial capacity couldn’t move my surroundings — or at least feed one child in our feeding outreaches. But I was wrong!
I started organizing workshops for a cause. It helped me raise funds for Joseph Feeding Mission’s (JFM) beneficiaries. Yay for that! I’ve been doing it for almost 3 years now through Share Movement, but “empower” and “growth” keep hunting me. Everytime I accomplish my goals, these words come back and remind me that it’s not the end. PUSH! Haha!
With that said, I prayed and wondered: what else could I do?
“Sometimes you have to help yourself
get to a place where you can bless others
with your best thinking and effort.”
I soon realized that we have a lot of talented contributors who wanted to do something for a cause, but were too shy to be one of our workshop speakers. After months of planning, brainstorming, studying, praying and a lot more, I finally did something beyond my expertise – selling products! :))Shop and Share with the hope that it will help Share Movement save funds. (Yes, we have expenses too!) and give more to JFM.
These are some of our contributors who dedicated their time to produce sticker layouts that we can sell.
L-R/T-B : Jane, Jules, Trina and Allison
And yay! It’s available now! I love how our contributors worked together to sell these lovely stickers. (One of my contributors, sold dozens of sticker packs in Ateneo Trade, some blogged about it, or even volunteered to sell it on a bazaar!) — And soon, it will be available in Common Room (Katipunan)!!!
