A lot of kids in Negros (Philippines) are in real need. They go bare footed to school and write in banana leaves as a notebook.
Fortunately for them there is an international organization, with its Philippine branch pushing strong to help the less fortunate. That’s Domino Lux Way of Life: DLX.
President Marlon Ramirez has been leading the group for two years now and achieved to collect tons and tons of toys and goods to give away to the needed kids all over the country.
So from June 23 to June 30 they will be traveling around Negros Oriental and Occidental on this charity mission.
Because I’m gonna probably be a part of it as well soon.
Met brother Marlon Ramirez recently doing a charity work precisely for DLX, when I knew nothing about them.
Things always happen for a reason. When Marlon walked in the dressing room of the event where all the artists were and started his speech I was sleeping in a secret corner and not minding anything that happened there.
But something didn’t let me sleep anymore. My arachnid sense was telling me I was missing something important. So I stood up and sleepy walked towards them to hear the last words and clapping of the crowd. I didn’t know what happened really so asked the colleagues, who couldn’t really explain much. LOL.
Anyway we saw each other and connected awaking common interest. Well it sounds like a novel, but as I write it I discover what I felt and what I think we both felt. The organizer came fast to say “Sir Marlon, this is Kuya Manzano”. And I apologized for not hearing the speech and he had the interest enough to sit with me apart to chat about the organization and goals.
Made a good contact, gave him my number, saw him during the event happily taking pics with a non stopping smile. Well, that’s the kind of people I like!
Then met his friends and took lots of pictures and started unconsciously to get closer. The next day we are talking in Facebook. I’m researching about the organization in the net, reading all I find, he invites me in to meet more people and all seems so positive, and happy, and nice that I end up interested.
More chats have to come and possibly you’ll see me doing some charity events soon with DLX.
Thank you Facebook for connecting people. And everything happens for a reason. And one thing leads to another. And I always keep on getting surprised with new events and directions in my life.

As a friend of mine just said. They wont approve the RH bill until the poor people don’t start eating priests.
We are far too many people living in Manila these days. Our population has burst up in such a speed we cannot contain it anymore.
Streets full of rubbish and squatters. Hold ups, taxi scams, robbery and rape all over.
I bought my own car and spend so much in my transportation everyday because I cannot commute. It’s too dangerous, specially if you are white. Most people think I’m so rich because I’m white.
Well thanks to that I have to spend a lot in transport I really have to check on what jobs to accept because if it’s too far and not well payed I simply don’t get it coz I’ll lose money in due to transportation.
I have friends who have kids been still teenagers and they can’t take care of them. They can’t even marry if they even wanted to, because they cannot afford living out of their parent’s place. How can they raise a child.
Kids begging everyday in the traffic. Don’t those kids go to school? No they don’t. They prefer to beg to get some money. Maybe their parents force them to beg. Later their parents will force them to work and be prostitutes too in the future, or even now.
Every time you give money to a kid in the streets you are collaborating and promoting that kind of life. If you give them money they wont go to school anymore because it’s great to earn money by begging in the streets. They will never learn anything but to beg. You are promoting beggars. And then you’ll protest because you don’t want to see that.
