A kick of celebration of World Pulse Philippines 2nd Anniversary was held last September 25, 2021. Inviting everyone to join, welcoming new members, with fun games & prizes and meet new friends, Meet & Greet Online.

Last October, we invited fellow #Pinay to Rise Up to join and share their stories for World Pulse PH call for story “Ito ang aking Istorya” To inspire and encourage them, we gathered some thoughts and insights on what is sharing stories mean for them and why is encouraging is important, read here: What is Encouraging and Stories meant for you?

We also raise fund to be a blessing last Christmas of 2021 for We “Ambit”: A community sharing effort of World Pulse PH” (Panag-ambit sa Gasa/Sharing of Blessings).  This is our way to be meaningful by sharing our blessings with others. World Pulse PH “Ambit” is a small way to bring joy and smiles to in need families in Leyte.

 Big “THANK YOU” for your DONATION, without you, this initiative will not be successful.  There is no greater happiness to see families who are in need to receive a pack of Christmas groceries they can enjoy on Christmas eve. We believed, that every act of generosity can make a big difference and you made it possible to happen.

We acknowledge the time and effort of World Pulse sister, Rahnee Candaza who freely donated her artwork calligraphy as token of appreciation for those who gave their donation.

Four inspired women who have taken the time to tell their story on the choices of topics: My Hope for the year 2022, My Pandemic Experience, My Mental Health and Climate Change, what can I do?.

The purpose for this call for story is to encourage #Pinay to share their stories that they deserve to be heard, supported, encouraged and lifted up.

“As a writer it has been my goal to impact of the lives of others thru my writing, I want to give them hope and to share my faith that has been helping me to thrive and to overcome challenges that I face everyday. I love listening stories and to share my own stories.  It’s inspiring and encouraging to listen to other people’s victory. One of the biggest gift that we can give is God’s love, that is through with our encouraging and by helping them see life positivity and hope” -Sheena Radam-

As I have read the stories on World Pulse, there are women who will inspire and encourage you. I may not know them personally, nor they don’t know me personally but they give their time to read your stories. Despite that they have problem, but they give their encouragement. It gives strength and makes me feel “I’m not alone.”  There is other way to send your support and care aside thru face to face or video call and that is through writing. World Pulse inspire me, I’m glad to be part of this group, outside church, outside friend, but it’s around the world and it’s inspires me.  -Cristy Sabado-
