Volunteers Needed for a Good Cause

My friend, Ime Morales of Isang Bata, is looking for volunteer storytellers. Please read on ... 

Original post can be found here. Would appreciate it if you guys can also spread the word. Thanks in advance! :)

Join STORY THERAPY, Isang Bata's Christmas Program for Sick Children.

You don't need to spend money to make a child happy this Christmas. Isang Bata is inviting you to take part in its Story Therapy project on December 7, 2010 at the Philippine Children's Medical Center in Quezon City, where a lot of children will be spending the holiday season sick in their hospital beds. Let us make Christmas just a little bit brighter for these children.

We will be working with around 150 children, so we need as many volunteers as possible. Volunteers only need to pick an inspiring storybook and read it to a sick child on the day of the program. Invite your friends to come so you can have fun while making a difference together. Everyone is encouraged to unleash their creativity during storytelling: you can use props, music, puppets, etcetera. Remember, it's your gift to them.

Around 60 of these children are infants (neonates, the hospital calls them). So if you can also bring at least one rattle or one soft toy (or any kind of baby toy) on December 7, that would be awesome as well. You're also welcome to bring gifts for the older children, if you like, in the form of books, toys or clothes.

Register now as a storyteller, and let's offer some Story Therapy to these sick children. Please contact Ime Morales through 0906-2457910, email morales.ime@gmail.com

Deadline for registration is on November 30, 2010.

Please spread the word and help me share this announcement to as many people as possible.
