PANGARAP FOUNDATION and Marriott Manila's Spirit to Serve

It was a bus ride like no other.We were on board the one which was full of staff from the housekeeping department of one of manila's most affluent Hotels.It was around noontime of Saturday,September 15,2012 and we were headed to PANGARAP FOUNDATION along Taft Avenue.


PANGARAP FOUDATION is a shelter for boys ranging in age from 8 to 17 who are in need of special protection with the objective of ensuring that these children do not return to the streets and are given support, recovery, development, reintegration to society.

Marriott Manila on the other hand was here as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility aka corporate conscience.This is Marriott Manila's Spirit to Serve.

THE PRESENTATIONS

"It felt like Christmas in September"----that's me quoting myself.It was a time when you feel the spirit of joy and giving is very much alive.

Part of the day's activity was to entertain the kids and the housekeeping staff of Marriott Manila prepared dance and song numbers for the kids.And the kids of Pangarap Foundation also showed their talents.There were also games which made the atmosphere festive.Indeed,felt like a Christmas Party for a cause.

I felt how the employees of Marriott interact with the kids of Pangarap Foundation and the sincerity to share their time and talent to them.

  2. God bless the people who are selfless, generous and charitable. God bless Marriott in Manila!

    I suddenly miss doing Medical Missions.

    On a lighter note, gusto kong maging best friends ang mga taga-Marriott! hehehe! Seriously, I have a somewhat like points-rewards card of Marriott Hotels in blue, which I gained after we checked in at Renaissance Hotel (which is also operated by Marriott) in Kota Bharu, Kelantan a year ago, however, we have not tried accomodation and F&B of Marriott in Manila. Hopefully, pag nakauwi kami next year. :)
