KA Unity

1 12 2009

According to Webster’s Dictionary the word unite can be defined as: 1. To bring or put together so as to make a whole. 2. To join together for a common purpose. 3. To become consolidated.
Through the unity of the online Filipino community we were able to cast enough votes to declare Efren Peñaflorida as the Hero of the Year. When we come together for a common goal we are able to achieve great things. The bake sale that we held to raise money for the Ondoy relief fund showed how we can succeed in our goals when we all unite. Everyone pitched in his or her time and effort to make the bake sale happen. We all came together as one class to sell a variety of food and in the end our hard work all paid off. We were able to raise $227 dollars to donate to the relief fund, which was way more than we all expected to make. Although we are a small group of volunteers our efforts helped to be able to provide support to many people in the Philippines even though we are thousands of miles away. It is our goal a part of the Filipino community of the San Francisco Bay Area to unite to help each other and our fellow brothers and sisters around the world.
