More Campaign Photos..and Being Nostalgic

The moment I signed up to become a GIBOlunteer I knew my work was cut out for me. I had given my full strength and concentration on rallying, campaigning, flyering, talking to pedestrians even trekking under the hot summer sun. And as a volunteer, we were not expecting ANY form of payment. The joy of being with fellow volunteers who were as passionate, and the satisfaction of serving such an admirable leader was enough. Win or lose, I am proud of the path I have chosen.

However, come mid-April I was already starting to feel nostalgic. I was not prepared to say good bye to all my fellow volunteers (some as young as 8 and some as old as 80!) come end of the campaign season, and cease our regular Tuesday meetings. Of course, this is literally not the end, because I shall still be joining "Mahal Ko Bayan Ko" (MKBK) in their future medical missions. But you know, I am just a sentimental kind of girl.

Here are some pictures from our previous Berde-8 events that I wasn't able to blog about (for more pics please check my Facebook). Most photos were taken last week at Cubao, the supposed NoyMar country.


Tomorrow is our last Berde-8 event at Alabang (details below):
