Kids of Human Nature: For the Spirit of 'Bayanihan'
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6. I believe in this saying. Whatever training we had since we were kids, whether positive or negative are brought until adulthood. My parents were not perfect. But, I still remember that my mother and father will get mad at me whenever I throw garbage outside. Now that I’m all grown up, I will still keep a single wrapper and will even youngsters about keeping your own trash.
“The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed.” Proverbs 11:25. Again, I believe in this. When you help, expect something from God. You will be then blessed abundantly.
The two quote from the bible is quite a perfect combination. Train a child into helping others, so when they grow up, they are very blessed.
This is why I support Human Heart Nature. The company always aim in molding and honing kids, whether personality aspects or the capabilities.
Just last Saturday, January 18, 2014, the main office of the company at Commonwealth, Quezon City invited kids to help in selling stuffs where the proceeds will go to funds to help the victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). The kids were asked to help in preparing the hotdogs, orange cooler and selling them.
The event also sells book and used clothes all are donated by helping hands.
My four nieces, including Zoe, who just visited Philippines volunteered to help and they’ve done it with enthusiasm. My youngest nieces, Kahlen and Zoe were tasked in carrying a banner to encourage shoppers and even employees of Human Nature to buy some foods while my two older nieces cooked the hot dogs along with Dylan and Anna Wilk’s (Owners of Human Nature) children.
Now, let me ask you a question, when two cute kids carrying a cardboard asked you to buy hot dogs for a good cause, will buy or not? Of course, yes. I followed my nieces as they encourage people and 100% were delighted with some bought using large amount.
Me, just showing support for my nieces spent more than P300.00 for the hot dogs and orange cooler. I know it’s for the benefit of our brothers in the Visayan region, that’s why I did it with full of gladness.
According to my sister (store manager) the kids raised more than P3,000.00 for foods alone. The books collected more than P2,000.00 while the “Ukay Ukay” collected P6,000.00. All are audited and will be donated to the recipients.
It’s such a delightful experience seeing kids giving their time and sacrificing the supposedly time for play and relaxation for others. The event is quite worthy. Worthy of the time, effort and money. It’s cuteness overload as well.
At the end of the day, all my nieces were drained. They fell asleep as soon as they got home. Apparently, they got inspired. They were happy, because they helped.
Whenever the time that I already had kids, I would love seeing them to such. I will teach them to have compassion to everything.
