World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. To name a few World Vision ambassadors are Lea Salonga, Karen Davila, Tintin Bersola, Nikki Gil, Sam Concepcion and many more. :) One of World Vision's projects is the 12-hr Famine.

Last November 06, 2010, I was part of the launch of World Vision Philippines 12-hour Famine at Flying V Arena. It was the biggest movement here in our country fighting against hunger and poverty. No solid intake from 8am-8pm. But that sacrifice was truly worth it because we were able to raise funds and help millions of children in the Philippines.

This year, I am partaking again in the second launch of World Vision Philippines' 12-hour famine (It will be held on November 19, 2011 at Ynares Center). But before the event itself, today I attended the orientation and workshop for volunteers at their office. This was a day full of fun, insights and realizations. Thank you World Vision for inculcating such inspiring lessons. I am a PROUD HUNGER-FIGHTER! I am a PROUD WORLD VISION ADVOCATE! I commit myself in this endeavor and I will be a more responsible child sponsor. :)

and if you want to have a clearer picture of what World Vision is, you may also visit their site:

I've been an advocate of World Vision since August 2009. It was in the same date where I started to sponsor a child. By sponsoring this child, I am able to send her to school and help her community.

Lastly, I am spearheading a fund-raising so I can donate the money I raised before the 12-hr famine event. Any amount or any form of help will do. :) You can contact me through email: aliana_gimena@yahoo.com

Or by just simply helping me spread this post, will be highly appreciated. God Bless and Thank you! :)
