A New Kind of Miracle

27 Nov

Admit it. It is so easy to be selfish during the holidays and splurge all your hard earned 13th month pay to yourself just because you deserved it. How many times have you thought about giving a chunk of that money to the less fortunate, which does not include your relatives and family?

I for one am guilty for filtering my Christmas list to friends and family. But now is the time to extend your reach and give something back to our less fortunate brothers and sisters. One way to do that is through Miracle Whip’s Miracle Machine.

Miracle Machine is a social network application and its objective is quite simple: to get people and their friends and their friends’ friends working together to make miracles happen for the less unfortunate. Think Facebook but instead of status updates and comments, you get opportunities to help.

 

To set the wheels of Miracle Machine in motion, visit http://www.facebook.com/WhippingUpMiracles, click on the Miracle Machine tab. Maybe there’s one miracle or two you’d be able to help us make happen and you might also consider spreading the word to your friends. There might be someone in your friend list or your friends’ friend list who has the means to answer a call for help or support a specific cause.

If we get everyone to pitch in, we can show that as more people become part of Miracle Machine, we get to make more and more amazing things happen!

The following recipients will benefit tremendously if everyone decides to take part:

Kythe Foundation hopes to help Angelalyn Magalano, a 13-year-old angel who suffers from Nephoric Syndrome and psoriasis by making her wish come true of meeting a pilot and talk about flying.

Jamboree Mountaineers hopes to make the indigenous tribes’ Christmas in Wawa, Montalban merrier by trekking there and delivering food for Noche Buena.

Firefly Brigade and Tiklop Society hopes to collect 10 bikes and bike safety gear for people in urban communities to help them get from one place to another faster and safer so they can be more productive in their work.

Tahanang Walang Hagdan hopes to give back to the 326 volunteers who have selflessly devoted their time to the organization by giving them gifts this Christmas.

Resources for the Blind hopes to record an audio storybook for blind children to bring them to the world of wonder and imagination.

Museo Pambata hopes to make 2, 000 children happy this Season of Giving by gifting them with pre-loved storybooks and toys.

Finally, for the 12th miracle, a fully functional miracle conduit will be made available on the 12th day of December to organizations who need it and people with something to give.

To date, there are a lot of companies and people who reached out through this endeavor and help make some of the wishes turn into reality:
