Jaric & Center for Possibilities Visits the Mind Museum

By | Educare, Giving Back | No Comments

 This year our foundation ( Jaric Foundation) collaborated with Center for Possibilities of Dolores Cheng and we took 17 “special kids” from Virlanie foundation and Cottolengo Filipino ( home for abandoned special children) on a field trip to the Mind Museum @themindmuseum The kids enjoyed and I enjoyed because the kids were so much fun to be with :-)

I spent 4 hours with them and I saw different personalities and just love them. Now I know why they are called “SPECIAL” because they truly are.  I miss them already. Thank you to the Mind Museum for a great time #TheMindMuseum #JaricFoundationjaric-center-for-possibilities-visits-the-mind-museum-2

 James and I don’t really celebrate our birthdays but this year we decided to – with the kids from our foundation Educare.  We celebrated a month ago since it was the last day of school so it was an early celebration. The kids probably don’t understand but we hope they enjoyed Birthday Celebration at EducareBirthday Celebration at Educare (2)

 We receive a lot of giveaways and lootbags (and We love them:-) ) from family, friends, from sponsors and they are all blessings.   So it’s just right to give them back to people who need them the most.  I’m so happy I found these gigantic bags ( around 30 inches tall) from Rustan’s Supermarket and we filled them up with snack goodies from Herr’s & toys donated by my siblings!Birthday Celebration at EducareBirthday Celebration at Educare (4)

As I was organizing an activity for my foundation, I receive an email from my friend, Pauli!  She offered to hold an etiquette class for the kids and moms at Educare!!  What a blessing!!! God really knows even before I ask!  I got so excited I immediately accepted and coordinated with Pauli because I thought it was such a great idea.  I wish we could give classes to as many people as we can.    I took video clips and put them together here, watch Coach Pauli from Etiquette de Manille

Feeding Program by Iya

Me ( Iya Consengco)  and my friends ( Kat Aquino, Raphaelle Fernandez and Haydie Castrodes ) wanted to do something special during Chinese New Year last January 23,2012, so we came up with a feeding program for Educare since we all are fond of kids.

When we arrived at the event, it felt great to see 70 kids smiling at us, eager to share to us their talents. The program started off with a prayer and me and my friends introduced ourselves. Ms.Cecille Pamugalinog ( Teacher at Educare ) guided the kids in performing their morning action songs and after that, we were able to distribute food for the kids and have the giveaways given to them. The kids definitely loved the food..

Since we are Communication Arts  as well, we decided to make this AVP for heart-to-heart and Educare to hopefully inspire all of you to volunteer and experience the joy of helping out Educare. The subtitles are in tagalog so that the medium of language could reach multiple demographics.

Special thanks to my parents ( Jing and Brenda Consengco ) who supported this event.

Thank you to Iya Consengco and friends for supporting Educare ( Jaric Foundation Inc )


Sharing Love at Educare

By | Educare, Valentine's Day | No Comments

It was nice day today at Educare and gifts were given to 400 kids for Valentine’s Day! They probably don’t know what Valentine’s Day is yet, but they will hopefully understand the meaning of LOVE through the sharing and giving from many generous friends who made them happy today

This year we had another one for the kids.  I wish every kid in the world could celebrate Halloween and wear a costume!
