Show Your Real Love!

I think it is no secret, especially to those who read my blogs a lot, that my Lolo is my hero. It has been 14 years since we lost him, and though the pain and sadness of not having him around has faded, it never really goes away. Although he was diagnosed initially with emphysema, he eventually succumbed to cancer in 1996. Our family has had a long history of battling this deadly disease, which claims so many lives yearly. Even my mom had her own uterine cancer scare a few years back after she had given birth to my youngest brother and in all honesty, this is also why my personal PCOS related woes kinda scare me to the highest heavens all the time things don’t go well health wise. In my head I do know prevention is better than cure, which is actually why I opted to get myself vaccinated against HPV, which is one of the leading causes of cervical cancer, but right now, I’m butting heads with my doctor because of it hehe.

I realized that one thing that helped my family a lot get through all those cancer scares and difficulties was the fact that we had a good support system to lean on. However, not everyone has that. This is why when I was invited by Ms. Janette Toral to support the Real Love Campaign for the benefit of Kythe Foundation, an organization that provides support and psychosocial services for children with cancer, I did not hesitate to include it as one of my personal advocacies.

The Real Love Campaign is led by Unilever Foodsolutions. You too are invited to support the cause by simply “liking” their official Facebook Page. By just clicking on that “like” button, you help make a difference. How? For every 1,000 “Like” entries until it reaches 10,000 fans, Unilever Foodsolutions will donate 1,000 sandwiches to the different Kythe partner hospitals.  Not bad, right? (SO CLICK NOW!!! hehe)

You can also support the cause by buying a special Team Manila Shirt (especially designed for this campaign) for only Php 550. The shirt comes in both mens and womens sizes.

You can also WIN one of these limited edition shirts by simply supporting my little contest here in The Accidental Teacher :-) The mechanics are simple. Just complete the statement:  “I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by____________”. Post your answer in the comment section below and on October 10, 2010,  one lucky winner will take home the special Team Manila shirt :-) Winners, however, must be Philippine residents only.

  1. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by liking the spreadreallove facebook page, and by praying that the Kythe foundation will have many more sponsors and donors in the future.

  2. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by simply recruiting more people to like the Real Love Campaign facebook page. I know that every single “Like” counts, so I will ask my friends,my friends’ friends, co workers, subordinates, family members and everybody that I know who uses facebook to like the page and share something for the kids of Kythe. I will also spread the word by posting information about the kids of Kythe in the forums where I am a member, in my blog, multiply,twitter and other social networking sites. Maybe some of them might want to become volunteers or sponsors in the future.

  3. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by blogging, Tweeting, Plurking, and sharing about the Real Love Campaign Facebook page and asking people to like the page.

  4. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by being an inspiration to them and other people as well. I will share the Real Love campaign to everyone, praying that more donors and volunteers will open themselves to this cause. I would be a PhP100 Miracle Worker!

    I have a soft heart for kids, most especially to those in need. I would take time to listen to the kids’ hearts and hold their hands. I’ll read with them stories filled with acceptance, hope and happy endings.

    I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by offering special prayers of hope, resilience, and recovery for them this entire month of October (till forever). I will also let other people know about this campaign so that the foundation can raise not only more funds but greater awareness about cancer.

    “I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by VOLUNTEERING, because it gives me an opportunity to change lives, including my own. If I’d like to support a cause but can’t afford to donate money, I can donate my time instead. I will show my love, my emotional caring and support to give the kid a secure base from which to explore the world, I will pray for them for their healing. Children fighting for their lives have very little to smile about. Sending words of encouragement and support to a cancer patient of any age can make a difference in their life, and have a beneficial effect on their recovery.”

    Keep on spreading the love guys! Keep on spreading the Real Love Campaign!

  7. “I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by offering healing prayers and masses during our class mass and during our regular school mass”

  8. “I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by utilizing my talent as a blogger in the field of passing the information and awareness of this move and hoping everbody can work together to save cancer patients”

  9. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by spreading the word about the Real Love Campaign.

  10. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by making a change within myself. I’ve always been inspired by Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror and the message is so clear that if we want to help others, we must also learn to help ourselves change. Let me just quote “No message could have been any clearer, if you wanna make a better world, take a look at yourself and make that change”.

  11. I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by, aside from offering prayers for them and joining campaigns as such, doing our best in everything we do…in other words, we could live our lives to the fullest in favor of the opportunity given to us.
    As a student, I would study hard and work my ass of, so that I could be the one to also MAKE a change in the future…
    …so far, that’s the almost-best I can think of.
