“Hindi hadlang ang kahirapan para makatulong at maka-inspire sa ibang tao. Sobrang natutuwa lang ako na kahit gaano karami o kaliit ang meron tayo ay kaya pa rin nating magbigay sa iba” Myra Resultan, a former OFW and now a seamstress in Pasig talks about the reason why she started her project for a school in her mother’s hometown.
Eldest of 7 siblings, Myra had been exposed to the realities of life at an early age. As a child, to help her family earn, she would walk to nearby towns or hike up a mountain to find people who would buy her lola’s goods. When she got older, she took a course in Dressmaking, and used her knowledge and skills to go abroad and work in Saudi. Her life as an OFW was hard. She was filled with fear and uncertainties. Yet, amid all these hardships, what helped Myra get through them all is her loving family. So, she thought that if everyone had someone who stayed by their side— who gave them love and support, then maybe more people could get through the challenges of life.
Such realization led her to partner with BEAGIVER Campaigns, a platform by BEAGIVER Ventures Inc. where individuals and organizations can realize their advocacies and initiate projects for their communities. Through BEAGIVER’s platform, Myra initiated a campaign that aims to raise school bags for the children in her mother’s hometown which could hopefully motivate them to pursue their studies and keep going. So far, her campaign has already raised 15 school bags out of 100. Currently, Myra and BEAGIVER are working together to fulfill her goal before Christmas comes.
Since 2017, BEAGIVER’s platform has given support to campaigners across the country, touching the lives of 83,694 school children from 219 schools and communities.
Now that the season of giving is drawing near, more campaigners are coming onto the platform to start their giving projects for Christmas.
