Assuming A Greater Challenge: NNCRVII Appoints New Champions to Causes

I have always used my social media influence to promote awesome things: from great personal reflections, to events with a blast; but what I'm most notable for is my inclination towards anything for social good. 

So it comes as no surprise that I became part of one of the fastest emerging organization of media practitioners in Cebu assembled by the National Nutrition Council that would help sustain efforts for nutrition campaigns, advocacy and events.

Malnutrition is one of the effects of poverty that has been putting the country at bay in terms of human and economic advancement.

MEDIA INFORMATION NETWORK FOR NUTRITION AND DEVELOPMENT 7 (MIND 7) has been involved with projects and events that NNC Region 7 has been fighting for these past few years.

Yours truly, was just entrusted the position as Secretary and was blessed enough to land in a national daily via coverage by Ms. Cheryl Baldicantos of Manila Bulletin. As I assume a new responsibility, I promise to do everything in my pow…

Of Becoming Your Own Hero: A RAFI Alumni Story

Here is an inspiring story from the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. tells that you could be a hero by just giving a little of your time, and that time you give someone today is the treasure they will forever be grateful for...

Helping fellow youth
Reviewing her school lessons and doing assignments were the usual routine of Joni Joy Dumasig, 19, the moment she arrives at home from school. But now, this business major student dedicates some of her time to community work.

Dumasig is one of the young scholars of Young Minds Academy (YMA) Season 5 who have given up some of their time for hobbies and hanging out with friends to do more rewarding work.

These scholars under the youth leadership and citizenship development program of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) committed to carry out community-based projects to address poverty and social welfare, the theme of YMA Season 5. By teams, they were assigned to four local government units and partnered with six civil society groups, which act…

Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. Celebrates 5 Years of Awesomeness!

A glamorous event for the Cebu bloggers happened at Harold's Hotel in light of CBSi Appreciation Night last February 15, the organization's anniversary celebration and a toast to the monumental success we've worked so hard for. 

With the theme, “ACTNow”, which is also CBSi’s guidepost for civic participation, I thank all the members' support and the guidance of our leaders who are one with me when I say that bloggers have the power to incite action from the general public in issues that we are facing today.

And as the Official Committee Chair for the Outreach, I promise to integrate social good in every endeavor that CBSi will be involved in and eventually have it naturally assimilate with us especially to our partners: the agencies, the businesses, the government and most especially the non profits and the youth sector.

The night will recognize members and partners who made significant contributions to the premier blogging organization in the country.

This event will ca…

How to recharge prepaid mobile balance from anywhere in the world

I have relatives on both sides of my family living abroad for various reasons reasons and it always has something to do with trying to give the very best for their families. Technology has enabled us to connect with our loved ones in ways we never knew a few decades back. It has enabled us to simply talk and laugh with them like they were never gone. In fact, last Christmas, the whole family gathered around the computer to skype with our cousins abroad and they did a little magic show to our little children's amazement. Things like this are priceless.

But Skype has limitations, they're gonna need to login to their computer to be able to contact you. They even need to load credits to call you, or when worse comes to worst: what if there is an emergency and you need to get contacted immediately. Computer and internet connection may not always be there but your phone is. Worry not, there is hope.

I had just learned about how to enrich your experience with loved ones abroad throug…
