12th day of December 2015, marked Seasielle’s (founder of Wonderful Life) first ever storytelling event with a theme: Exploring the world through reading.
It came out because of her will to give back to others for such a prosperous year, and what a perfect way to share it but with her most favorite thing to do: reading.
Of course, organizing an event while working for more than eight (8) hours a day was not that easy. Obstacles along the way was her greatest enemy. Can you believe that just two days before the event, one of the storytellers backed-out due to personal reasons; twenty four (24) hours before the event, another one had an emergency. What a total chaos! Good thing, miracle happens all the time! Seasielle’s mother volunteered to be the storyteller. Huge thanks for her!
The event started at 3:15 pm in the afternoon, and ended at exactly 5:00 pm. Five books were read – three Tagalog and two English.
The kids were very attentive and well-behaved though there were some who were naughty.
It was really a fun Saturday filled with learnings, games, activities, prizes, food, and of course, loot bags.
The kids did not only leave with prizes, but they also left with a story to share with others.
We all say that we want a change from this planet, well, be the change that you want. Let it start from us so that slowly, we can achieve what we dream of. Don’t just sit there while complaining and being greedy, do something for yourself.
God Bless! #ForeverGrateful
P.S. This year, Seasielle is planning another storytelling event maybe November, or December. For those who want to lend a helping hand, just leave a message here; also, suggestion for places are still welcome (specifically in Makati, Marikina, Pasig, or Quezon City).
