My recount of my experience on a pencil distribution day ^.^

Pens of Hope in Davao is an outreach program initiated to help address the scarcity of writing materials in the Philippines, particularly in Davao City. The idea, which was originally conceptualized by Nortehanon, a blogger from Northern Samar, is now being implemented by the alumni and existing volunteers of Social Involvement Coordinating Office (SICO), the social arm of Ateneo de Davao University.

And Beyond Art's Sake CEBU) is a movement to bridge the gap between artists, art lovers, and charitable individuals; making art accessible to everyone regardless of financial, social or cultural background. It is a space in the World Wide Web where artworks of amateurs and professionals are placed side by side, towards a common goal of fostering charity, one artwork at a time. It is a group of individuals who are willing to share their time, effort, and resources to give artists a venue to share their artworks, in any form, for the benefit of our countrymen in need.One of the projects they support through art is Nortehanon's Pens of Hope. Many artists contribute their drawings, sell them to art lovers and use the proceeds in buying writing materials.
 See All the artworks.

And Me as ONE of the volunteer of PENS OF HOPE DAVAO. Come up the idea to sale NECKLACE,BANGLES,EARRINGS,DRAWINGS to support the ADVOCACY.
