1,200 kg of vegetables, 100 kg of dried fish, 600 kg of rice and 3,000 servings of Mingo Meals were on today’s birthday buffet table. There’s a bit of difference though, because the celebrants weren’t present and they probably don’t even know each other or that they would be celebrating jointly. But both chose to celebrate their April birthdays by giving instead of receiving: Maritel through a Facebook birthday fundraiser and Susan by sending over provision for her birthday blowout.
No food was eaten, either. Instead, The Feeding Force mealbags were taken home by 200 men from the town of Isabela, Negros Occidental, whose incomes were compromised because of the COVID-19 crisis. Thanks to these two ladies and some other generous hearts who made today’s celebration possible, 200 families in 200 homes aren’t sleeping with empty stomachs tonight because of you.
