Join Hero of D Day!

MANILA

Storytelling is an age-old tradition of the world. It has been practiced to
pass on information, make sense of experiences, and understand one another. It
has the power to immortalize individuals and events, incite ideas and action,
and bring people together. It is in the spirit of this powerfully unifying
practice that Hero Of D Day and CSR World bring to you Share a Story, Save the World: A Volunteers’ Meet-up.
On
the 8th of November, Saturday, 6:00 PM, aspiring and seasoned
volunteers from the youth sector will meet at Co.Lab, Brixton St., Brgy.
Kapitolyo, Pasig City to tell their own tales and listen to others. Php 250
will avail participants of a Hero Of D Day kit, certificate, food, drinks, and
an invaluable storytelling experience.
There
will be an opportunity to share volunteer stories with fellow volunteers. Juana
Change, an advocate of freedom, justice, good governance, and social change is
slated to speak at the event. Geoanna Corneby, a Corporate Social
Responsibility officer and an active volunteer for various NGOs that further
youth development, empowerment of the poor, and nation building, will be
conducting a writing workshop for the participants as a culminating activity as
well.
Share a Story, Save
the World: A Volunteers’ Meet-up
is led by two groups one in the cause – Hero
Of D Day and CSR World. Hero Of D Day is a social media organization that believes
there is a hero in every one. Focusing the lens on the everyday hero, it recognizes
great and small acts of heroism by collecting stories and publishing them
online. CSR World is the youth department of Benita and Catalino Yap Foundation
that ensures the knowledge and experience of young people on CSR 3.0 – Citizenship,
Sustainability and Responsibility – are comprehensive and will enable them to
be better citizens.
Both
organizations focus on stories of volunteers and volunteerism and through this
joint event, they aim to inspire participants to pursue their passion for
helping others and live lives worth telling stories about.
