For many of us, eating is a leisurely activity. We nom what we want and when we want. It isn’t the case for many others. There are thousands of Filipino families who cannot afford to eat even one good meal a day. Many go hungry for days on end. In most impoverished households, parents would usually sacrifice their share and sleep with grumbling tummies to be able give their children what little food that they can get. They are the luckier ones.
The children cared for by Virlanie Foundation usually have no families to run to, for food or any kind of support. They are usually rescued from abusive families- some are neglected or abandoned by their own parents while others are exploited by various evils in this world. The people behind Virlanie seeks to provide basic care for these children and steer them towards a better life, and in turn, a better future.
“Rice up!” is one of Virlanie Foundation’s campaigns, with the goal to gather enough rice to be able to provide meals for hundreds of these disadvantaged children for the year. They aim to raise 50 sacks of rice every month or 600 sacks for the year and in order to do so, they need our help. As of last Saturday, they still need 332 sacks of rice. Together, we can help them reach their target.

- Dubbed my new favorite sammich “Spamzarella”. Two slices of sugar-free bread, one topped with #Spam and mozzarella slices on the other, both toasted open-faced until the cheese starts sizzling and then combined to make the most perfect semi-cheat snack. #makemeasandwich #sugarfreebread #sammich #BTMeats - August 16, 2017
