Generous Living, Generous Giving
“For it is in giving that we receive.” ―St. Francis of Assisi
Tagaytay City, Cavite -- Members of the senior population experience more loneliness than other age groups, due to weakened health or a decline in physical mobility. Time spent with seniors in enjoyable conversation is significantly valued, enhancing the seniors’ sense of emotional well-being. Lent is a season of grace. During Lent we follow Jesus’ example of service. Take the time to deepen your faith and serve others in this season of Lent by engaging in fun and positive conversations with the elderly.
Thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers. We received a total of ₱15,250 cash donations and pledges that we used to purchase rice provision (5 sacks of 25 kg), assorted canned goods, coffee, adult milk, biscuits, food packs, and toiletries amounting to ₱12,000. The remaining amount was spent for food and transporting the goods to the care facility. We also received heartwarming in kind donation of rice (7 sacks of 25 kg), wheel chair, commode, diapers, clothes, and food packs. It is such a joy to see you pouring your hearts out through your selfless contribution. Your kindness will always be remembered. May God reward you with His choicest blessings!
Today, we delivered your gifts to 18 vulnerable and orphan girls and 4 staff at Pequeña Casa de Nazaret, Las Piñas City under the care of the Liitle Sisters of the Annunciation. To break the ice, the children sang "You Are Mine" and played a fun name game where they mention their names and act out a motion or their favorite mannerism. Isaiah 43:1-5 tells us that God loves each one of us. He formed and made us with divine precision and care. He assures us, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name. You are mine.”
We thank you dear donors and volunteers for your support and for your desire to help us succeed in our monthly missions at Kairos Momentum. In the very presence of Jesus, God demonstrates that He is love—and love gives. May God bless you always for having hands and hearts that give.

Being extra careful not to come near to the orphaned and vulnerable children for their health and safety, we paid them a quick visit to drop off essential goods and food provision. These needs are still there inspite of the pandemic.
Heartfelt thanks to everybody who put their hand and hearts together for the children at Mo. Spinelli's Treasures in Tagaytay. It was a special day only made possible with your help. Thank you once again for helping us increase the work we can do in our community. God is your reward!
Isolation is a big issue for the elderly, more so at Christmas. Not everyone has family or friends to spend Christmas with and for many December 25th is just another day. For them, it’s not an exciting time of watching grandchildren open presents under the tree or sharing a meal with loved ones. Nor is it a day to pull a cracker or to give someone they love a Christmas present. Due to Covid-19, their interactions with each other have been restricted, their time with staff has been limited and the volunteers have not been allowed in for most of the last almost two years. During holiday and festive times, loneliness can be amplified by the lack of having anyone to spend time with.
We visited Bahay Pag-Ibig Home For The Elderly in Holy Angel Village, Telabastagan, San Fernando, Pampanga on December 11, 2021 to brighten the holiday season for 14 lolos and 33 lolas. We brought them supplies of food and rice provision, milk, groceries, diapers, toiletries, slippers and clothes. The objective is to let them know they’re not forgotten during what can be a depressing time of year. Due to strict enforcement of health and safety protocols, we were not able to interact with the lolos and lolas but nevertheless, we have delivered to them your gifts. We received a warm welcome by Fr. Ricarthy Dungo Macalino who celebrated the Holy Eucharist for us.
We're all blessed to have been part of this mission of bringing joy to others. Thanks to all our generous sponsors who made it possible for us to reach out to the senior residents of Bahay Pag-Ibig. Your work for God does not go unnoticed. God is your exceedingly great reward. Wishing y'all a Merry Christmas.
It is estimated in the 2020 UNICEF report there are about 210 million orphans worldwide. In the Philippines alone, there are approximately 1.8 million of them. Nearly one-third of these children who start primary school do not complete fifth-grade. To make matters worse, COVID-19 pandemic has forced many school students around the world to embrace remote learning. But not all have computers at home. Remote learning makes the situation especially hard for orphans and vulnerable children at Little Angels Home who are at the critical point of student to computer ratio of 1 is to 8. The computer room gifted to the children on December 4, 2021 by Datamatics CMS PH was equipped with 20 computers in like-new condition, new electrical installations and lighting were set up and a new air conditioning unit was installed. This computer room will give orphans and vulnerable children urgent resources to attend online classes like other children hence cutting on the number of children who can not access online classes due to lack of computers. For their part, employees contributed generously by making financial pledges to buy much needed staples like food packs, fresh fruits, milk diapers, toiletries and other grocery items. The kids enjoyed a day of laughter, food, games and gifts. I'm so glad to be part of an organization that takes caring and giving back as core mission.
Special thanks to ate Edna and Ram for helping us in more ways than one. The provision you sent helped us carry out this mission of mercy for the children. May you be blessed abundantly more than you deserve!
We wish all of you a very Happy Christmas and a smooth start to 2022!
Nehemiah 6:15-19 tells us the story how the Jewish leader Nehemiah envisioned to complete the wall around Jerusalem, which had fallen into disrepair. His persistence teaches us that God does not only help us start things but also finish them. We are excited to share with you that the wall finishing project has been completed! We are thankful to see this day and know that it was possible because of your constant prayers and and untiring support. God did and is still doing amazing things through our missions for the elderly, and we want you to know that you are intricately part of what is happening here at Kalingap Home for the Elderly.
To our generous donors, tireless volunteers, repeat visitors and mission partners, thank you again for all you have done and continue to do. The lolas love you more than you know and more than they could tell you. Thank you for always serving as the provident hands of God for them. As we approach the Christmas season, may the Lord bless all of you: your families, your problems, your joys, your hopes. Merry Christmas!
Isolation is a big issue for the elderly. Yesterday, we dined, chitchatted, sung and danced with the lolas in Kalingap Home for the Elderly to let them know they’re not forgotten while we are all navigating this pandemic. Biggest hugs and prayers for making a meaningful contribution of 40 bags of cement to Kalingap Home for the Elderly. Because of your generosity, they can do things they couldn’t otherwise afford with their very tight, nonprofit budget. Now, they will not only be able to finish exposed concrete walls before painting but also prevent wall damage due to water penetrations. Sincerely, thank you for all of your incredible help. A deep bow to all of you for allowing us at Kairos Momentum the privilege of serving this community. Thank you also to all those buying homemade products of cooking oil, atsara (papaya relish), black and white pepper, potholders, doormats, flowers and plants to help meet the daily needs of the lolas. May the Heavenly Father who sees your good deeds in secret reward you openly and abundantly! (Matthew 6:4)
Frequent visits to the lolas make them happy and is key to keeping them feel young. We spent the whole morning with the señoritas at Kalingap Home for the Elderly. Nanay Milagring sang "The Lord's Prayer". Nanay Mameng was slowly and mindfully enjoying her morning snack. Nanay Remie was reciting her favorite poetry. Nanay Myrna, Nanay Rose and Nanay Fem danced to upbeat music.
We delivered 195 kg of rice provision, 14 kilos of high calcium powdered milk, canned goods, food packs, toiletries and assorted groceries. This was all made possible by your steadfast support and generosity, and for that, we want to extend our sincerest gratitude. We stepped out in faith and asked for help. Then we saw God move powerfully through you. Knowing that we are in a time of pandemic, your contribution is extra special to us. May God generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others (2 Corinthians 9:8).
One of my favorite ministries is to reach out to the Catholic youth by bringing faith, friendship, and loads of fun. As a grateful alumni, I implemented a mentoring program for Sta. Perpetua Youth Organization on their 43rd year. As culmination, they premiered "Mass of the Pierced Heart" on August 22, 2021 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Minor Seminary in Makati City. It was a stunning performance! An amazing effort from everyone. They sang music mostly for divided choirs (cori spezzati) but have demonstrated team work and friendship in every song.
SPYO Gen Z was so happy and grateful to receive a Yamaha PSR E463, piano keyboard stand and gig bag as gifts on their 43rd year. I am not the benefactor. I am merely the pass-through guy of generous hearts who prefer to stay anonymous. These selfless individuals see the potential in this youth organization as future leaders of the Church.
To our sponsors, thanks to your generosity, SPYO Gen Z will be more motivated to keep making beautiful music for the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful for many more years to come. "And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:16-18. And at long last, they can now retiring their old piano keyboard!
