The House of Hope is a transient home for children with cancer, hailing from poor farming communities, seeking treatment at a large hospital in Davao – it provides free accommodation for these children and their caregivers, most of whom have sold all they have, to pay for treatment for their children.
Thus, when there was a call for new presents to bring some Christmas cheer to these children, I happily put together 10 scrapbook kits that tweens would enjoy, with materials from my SIL and my stash. The lovely Pam and Angeline both helped pass the gifts to Bravemaeve, who generously arranged to ship it all over.
I was a bit concerned that Typhoon Yolanda might have affected the House of Hope. Thankfully when I checked with Bravemaeve, she said they were fine, and the gifts would indeed send some joy their way.

Sending this across the miles with much love!
Even though I’m far from wealthy, I count myself very fortunate to be without want. Hence, I’ve decided to start a series called “Love in deed”, to post about helping the less fortunate, both on our shores, and beyond.
“…let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
