One day, while I was randomly thinking, I had the greatest idea and shared it to my mom: "I want to celebrate my birthday on the hospital." I thought of Philippine General Hospital (PGH) since that's where I often have my hospitalization because it's cheaper and has my lot of good doctors. But I'm still lucky because we are able to afford the pay ward (private rooms) and the best doctors! I feel so blessed and I wanted to share my greatest blessings, not money, definitely not. My greatest blessings are my friends! MAY BIRTHDAY PROJECT was born!
I sent a text message to all my friends and everyone I know for a birthday gift/s on my upcoming birthday. I asked for tissue, alcohol, cotton, diapers, soap, and other toiletries / necessities used during hospitalizations. Pack them together and I was able to give more than a hundred patients from 3-4 charity wards (2 Pedia, Neurosurgery, Spine surgery, Pedia ICU) I also asked for toys and gave it to the kids in Pedia wards because I've been confined in the hospital bed a lot of times and I know how boring it is to stay there. What more if you are a child? That would be so boring! So we should give them something to play with. And of course, a party won't be complete without foods. :) Before we come in their room and start our gift-giving, you would notice the sad and blank faces of these patients and their guardians
