While my family has so much to be thankful for. I know there are millions of people who face hunger and there are so many families who struggle to put a meal on the table on a daily basis. Every year we fulfill a family tradition that's been going on for four years now, we visit Hospicio De San Jose to celebrate Kuya Marc's Birthday.

I look forward to Kuya Marc's Birthday every year since we started. You get to spend a special day filled with friends and family and know that you are making a difference in someone's life. 
Kuya Marc celebrates his birthday at Hospicio De San Jose knowing that he won't receive any gifts but rather he's the one giving. The happiness and smiles from the kids are more than enough for him. 

It's been getting better each year as more people are encouraged to give love and share their blessings. Tito Boeing and Tita Dulcie from Tampa, Florida was with us, Bangalan Family, Friends and our children. 
It's not just about the money, we also let our children be a part of this special time that we give to the less fortunate. How you give is less important than that you give- and the only way to teach your children about sharing is to be willing to give yourself. Children will do what you do and not what you say. Actions will always speak louder than words.

We hired Jollibee to cater again this year to host the party, which had brought smile to everyone :-)

Happiness is having a LARGE, CARING, CLOSE-KNIT FAMILY who makes life more meaningful. 

Thank you God for all your blessings to me and my family. 

Happy Birthday Kuya Marc and Thanks for keeping this family tradition. ♥ 

Tell me what you think? I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.

THANKS, Much Love, Rochelle
