Paint My Future! Paint means Art. We partnered with Kuya Robby Singh for the mural, Kuya James Lo for the origami/paper toys and Katag Art Group for overall supervision. My means Kids. We reached out to World Vision and tapped one of their schools- Jose Rizal Elementary School in Tayuman Street Manila. Future means education now. World Vision programs are all about education and last Saturday, some of the volunteers pledged for it.

“It was one of the most unique events we had to date”, says Kuya Harvard. “To add we got great and competent partners to collaborate with us. The centerpiece mural will be a good reminder to the kids of Jose Rizal to focus on their future as early as now”, he adds.

It was indeed a fun day last May 12 as 103 volunteers, 12 U! Happy Events’ leaders, plus partners and sponsors, 100 kids joined in for a morning activity on art with magic show and dance at the end.

“We capped off the event with two dance songs”, says Ate Joanna. “We teach the steps, let them learn it and dance it after. It is one way to finish off and celebrate what we have done together”, she claims.

See U! on the next one! 🙂
