Manila, Philippines

Pay it forward. The rise of Community Pantries.

Remember when they say everyday is a blessing? If you live to see a miracle, then we are seeing it right now. Hope is always around the corner.

It takes only one pure initiative from Patreng Non at 96 Maginhawa Street to raise a movement that everybody now calls "Community Pantry". With it's mantra of "Magbigay ayon sa kakayahan. Kumuha ayon sa pangangailangan" this just shows how one individual can influence to change the world.

As she lead by example, it clearly shows how we can react on things. We hold the option to continue to complain or do something about it. The only thing that stops us are ourselves.
