Make the World a better place, one hour at a time!

There is always a point in our lives that we thank Him for the blessings that we have. Even in the most trying of times, we have to be grateful because there are a lot others who are less fortunate than we are. Driving around the streets of Manila, we see a lot of kids in ragged clothing and begging. We can help these kids by donating to Children’s Hour.

The concept behind Children’s Hour, a non-profit organization, is that they ask at least one hour of our earnings or a company’s earnings to help improve lives of these less fortunate Filipino children. Since they are still children, they do not have the capacity to earn yet. Do you know how much you we’d be able to help if we give a part of our earnings? Check out these statistics:
