UPDATED - A Breeze of Good Deeds #19: For Lysander's Heart
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Kids are supposed to be a picture of playfulness. They should feel the warmth of a sunny day and enjoy dancing in the rain. But not all kids have been given the chance to enjoy their childhood. I was always sick growing up. My parents always recall how I was left behind in the hospital when I was born. I grew up taking care of myself, knowing what medicine to take and when to ask for help. Now, I am not scared of needles probably because I got used to them as a kid. I am still sickly but I am still fortunate that I still get to enjoy the things that life offers. But not everybody is given the same chance that I am now enjoying.
I hope you will help me make this possible for Lysander, a one-year old boy born with a congenital heart disease. His family is trying very hard to raise ONE MILLION PESOS for his medical bills and his upcoming operation on January 2011. Family and friends have joined hands in saving this little angel.
I came to know Lysander through her aunt Lore. We used to work together before she left the company a few months ago. She has the most contagious laughter that every time I hear it, I can’t help but giggle even if I don’t know what was making her laugh. I know that Lysander will grow up to be as jolly and cheerful as her aunt. And I know that this will be possible with everybody’s help.
They are selling bracelets and necklaces to raise funds. Christmas is just around the corner so these are nice gift suggestions. Donations are also very much welcomed. Account details are as follows:
