“We can measure statistics of children without the means of Basic Education, we can measure poverty, we can measure the rising crime rate, and we can even measure the cost of ignorance. But can we truly measure the potential of a child? By providing these children with the materials wherein they can continue to learn, we are offering them a brighter future.” ~ Dr. Rudy Sabater, HWH Director
Hotelwithheart.com (HWH), the world’s first and only online hotel booking site that gives to charity from commission income at no cost to guests, partners with Dynamic Teen Company (DTC). DTC is a group founded in August 1997 by four teenagers from Cavite National High School, including Efren Penaflorida, 2009 CNN Hero of the Year. Their mission is to make small yet significant difference in other people’s lives, particularly the small children in slum areas who have no access to education, basic hygiene and sometimes, even love from their families. Through the HWH Pencil Project Signature campaign, each collected signature is equivalent to one pencil that HWH will donate to DTC for less fortunate kids to help them in their education.
The Pencil Project originally ran for the entire month of June, but is now extend till the end of July. HWH aims to raise 10,000 pencils to be donated to DTC. I signed up today and it only took me three minutes to fill-up the form. Please help HWH and DTC give these unfortunate children a brighter future by supporting this campaign.
