We’ve been noticed. Salamat po!
We’ve been featured on Kuya Daniel Razon’s award-winning website, DanielRazon.com.
Really a big honor from Kuya.
In an article titled, Kuya Daniel calls for Just One day; Rotary Club of Kamuning first to respond, posted earlier today (April 2) on Danielrazon.com, the site found our little remarks on the blog post, The Beautiful Story of Isang Araw Lang, that read:
“On February 24, 2009, Kuya Daniel and the rest of “Pondahan” were publicly professing their pondering on pressing issues that plague the Philippine people (Wasn’t reading that fun?). And then, the most ingenious of ideas, like a streak of light, comes from Kuya Daniel: What if a doctor or lawyer just gives one day of his service to his fellow for free? What if any Filipino who has the capacity to give will sacrifice just one day for his fellow in need?
And that is how the “Isang Araw Lang” campaign was born and its cries have been ever so echoing on print, radio, TV, and the Internet since then.”
In the said Danielrazon.com article, it mentioned that Kuya Daniel Razon’s call Isang Araw Lang “spread like wildfire on the Internet and has caused an organization to provide medical assistance to a public school in Quezon City.”
Online publishers started blogging and uploading the video clips of an episode of the hit morning show Good Morning Kuya! (GMK), when Kuya Daniel disclosed to the public the underlying principles behind it.
Through the call, Kuya Daniel encourages every one who is capable to extend any help they can give to the less fortunate Filipinos in their own will.
After his bold call, many asked Kuya Daniel (he said on UNTV) why just for a day? To quote Kuya Daniel, here is what he said based on his website:
When asked by a friend, why one day only? He responded, “Sa’yo ko iiwan ang sagot sa tanong na yan…pero ang sasabihin ko sa iyo, hindi mabubuo ang isang linggo kung walang isang araw, hindi mabubuo ang isang buwan kung walang isang araw…inumpisahan na namin gawing araw-araw. Ikaw? Kelan mo gagawing araw-araw? Pero bago po tayo makarating sa araw-araw, mag-uumpisa muna tayo sa isang araw. Kaya isang araw lang po ang aming inaamot.”
(“I will leave the answer to that question to you…but what I am going to say to you is, one week will not be complete without a single day, a month will not be complete without a single day. We have already started doing it daily. How about you? When are you going to do it everyday? But before we start doing it everyday, we will start with one day. That is why, our plea is just one day.”)
Again, kudos to Kuya Daniel Razon. Thank you very much.
