How much is your P200 worth? It could help save a child’s life.

Two hundred pesos could buy you a 2D movie ticket with snacks to spare.  Two hundred pesos can buy you a Micro SD card for your phone or a flash disk for your files.  I load up on Sun Cellular’s UnliText 200 every month, which I use heavily.  My favorite comfort food, White Hat’s sourdough waffles, is roughly P200.

How much is your P200 worth?  Well, if you live in Cagayan de Oro City, it could save a child’s life.

Meet Cherubim and Micah, two adorable little girls who live in Cagayan de Oro City.  From the picture below, they look healthy, bright, and active.


However, one of the twins is seriously ill.  It’s the one on the left, Cherubim.  She was diagnosed with right kidney hydronephrosis…and she urgently needs an operation.


The parents are both working, but they have to shell out an insurmountable amount of money to save their daughter’s life.  Ever resourceful, they’ve started a fundraiser.

They need to sell 1000 “Save A Kidney” mugs at P200 each to cover the cost of Cherubim’s operation.  If I’m not mistaken, their computation does not include the medicines that come after the operation, so I personally feel that we have to help them surpass the 1000 mark.  Not only will I help them out by making this blog, but I’m going to buy me several mugs.  I’m a coffee and tea drinker, anyway.


Simply put, no way would I leave them to fight this fight on their own.  I’m a parent, and one of the worst things a parent can go through is seeing a child suffer.  Heck, I can barely stand seeing my kids go through the flu.

But much worse is a parent learning that a child’s life is on the line, and learning that to save the kiddo would require something pretty unreachable.  That is a situation no parent should face…and I ask you, no, beg you to help them out.

Check out the Save A Kidney facebook page (one of the notes has information on how you will receive your orders) and help them reach or even exceed the 1000 mark.  If you live in Cagayan de Oro, then by all means place your orders (the “s” is not a typo).  If you live outside CDO, you can also order and have delivered to other locations in the country, then you can also share the facebook page to those you know who live in CDO; or you can order and have the mugs given to CDO-based friends and family.

What is your P200 worth?  It could help save a child’s life.  Are you willing to do so?  

“But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”  (1 John 3:17-18)

    1. Hi. I don't think that's a good idea, as I heard Google will penalize you for copy-pasting material. You can either share this particular blog or you can make a blog post of your own (mine is not the only one, neither is it the first).
