The thought of being able to donate at least $1 to a charity by uploading an entry here is already enough motivation for me to join the contest. This is the first time I am joining one so I am really thrilled about it too. I hope you can help my urge to give a donation for this advocacy by making my photo entry a favorite. Thank you so much for the support! I am most grateful. =)
First, since this is Chictopia, let me talk about my outfit post. If you happen to read about my blog here before, I said something about not ever experiencing buying stuff online yet but that it doesn’t mean that I won’t ever give it a try. Indeed, due to all the influences I got from here, I tried online shopping and bought this dress at Romwe.com Click Here! . They have really nice stuff, glad to have discovered it here at Chictopia. Since I live at a Tropical Country- the Philippines, it’s mostly a sunny and hot day around here, so floral and summer outfit never get out of season for us, most especially in the Province where I come from- Masbate, which is an island. As for the accessories, most of them are from my mom, who got them from her recent trip to Europe. Charity begins at home as they say, and in this case, I am my mother’s recipient. =)The necklace is DIY by my very creative niece- Dimple. She made it and to support her venture, I have become an avid fan.
I especially chose wearing this outfit for this entry because I feel it looks natural, simple and most importantly it has a sentimental value for me. All that I’m wearing are “Firsts”. From the dress which is my first dress bought online, first item bought from Romwe too. The accessories from my mom are from her First time visit to Europe and my necklace is the First necklace that my niece made. My sandals and bag are from my First time trip to the US with my husband when he was granted a scholarship by the US State Department to join the International Visitor’s Leadership Program. All expense paid by the United States Government. Awesome!
Anyway, as for my chosen charity, this one is closest to my heart- the Real Life Foundation. I am an advocate of education for the youth. As our Philippine National Hero Jose P. Rizal once said “The youth is the hope of our nation.” I believe that for them to be that, they have to be equipped with the knowledge and wisdom that they can get from being educated. Real Life Foundation is a social and educational advocacy with a vision for transforming lives, families & communities through education. They especially give scholarships to the underprivileged youth. To know more about this charity group visit their website Click Here! or their Facebook account Click Here!
My photos by the way were taken at JZSES- my very own alma mater, a public elementary school in our Province. This is to emphasize that Education is an advocacy closest to my heart. The bracelet I’m wearing if you can check it out has a heart and a key. It symbolizes my heart for this advocacy which for me is a key for progress which our Country especially clamors to have.
I hope you can help me give a donation for this advocacy by making my photo entry a favorite. Thank you so much for the support! It really means a lot to me and most especially for those who can be sent to school if this entry wins. =)
