The Fruits of Our Blog: Our Christmas Present

Time flies.....was it only a few months back when we were contemplating to move "The Salitype Society" mansion from friendster to our very own site. Some of us may have not gotten comfortable to express their thoughts in this site, but some showed their inspiring energy to contribute and helped this site going. Nevertheless, the few who persevered and dedicated part of their time to this site was very inspiring. We truly appreciate everyone's support to this site, both members and guests, who kept on coming and leaving us comments, making us feel supported. Thank you, if not for the thoughts you shared, we may have not persevered and accomplished something. In just a few months, this site has reached a PR2 in google page rank, though we do not exactly know what it means, but for us, it means some significance, it means our blog is growing, it means, we can help make a difference somewhere.
And because of your support, we were able to accomplish one of our dreams, that is sending a child to school. In a few months, we were able to earn enough to help make a difference in a child's life, in the name of Micah Ramirez. We found Micah through Tapulanga Foundation. Tapulanga Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that helps the underprivileged get a chance for a better life, through education, healthcare, and micro-credit assistance. Micah is from EB Magalona or Sarabia, one of the more remote little towns in the province of Negros Occidental, Philippines. Micah's father left them, and her mother is now a single parent of 4 or 5 kids. The mother volunteered to work in St. Francis of Assissi School hoping to get a scholarship for her daughter, Micah, who is in Grade 3. And we were just right in time, after a few months, our blog has earned enough money to help make a difference. We were really looking for someone to sponsor, to send to school, to bring hope to the life of a child. And we are thankful to the Tapulanga Foundation, for allowing us make a difference in Micah's life.  Sending help to Tapulanga Foundation for Micah was easy through Give 2 Asia. Both Give 2 Asia and Tapulanga Foundation share God's gifts and good news, helping both body and soul. Check their sites for more information. 
Let us share with you Tapulanga Foundation's running ad, on kids who want to go to school, taking their chances for a better life. 

God willing, this site will generate more funds, through blogging. Blogging has indeed come a long way, when it was only mainly for expression of thoughts and words before, now, blogging has allowed us to become a community. A community who shares, a community who listens.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to All!

  16. Wow! You ladies have such good hearts. You're being blessed because you're also a blessing to others. Your PR determines the value of your site/blog.PR is Google's way of deciding a page's importance on the Web.It affects your ranking in the search results so the higher the PR,the better 'coz you'll be more visible.More traffic will come to you in effect.

    Lots of blogs may have linked up with you,hence the increase in PR.Though it ain't the only factor but it helps big time. Congrats and more income for charity! =)

    Merry Christmas to you all!
