A Moment To Remember

Written by Christine Querubin*


This post is a story about a series of events that happened in one unforgettable day in the eyes of a volunteer.

It’s March 24, 2012. I woke up around 3:30 and was uber excited to join and meet the participants for the Reach for the Sky 2, a project of the group Photography with a Difference (PWD). 


05:27am- A Long Day Ahead

Our rendezvous was at the Megamall Bus stop where I got to meet the all-hyped up kids excited for what awaits them as the sun rises today.

Ate Yon from the Philippine Society for Orphan Disorders Inc. (PSOD) oriented me about my task as a volunteer for PSOD, a beneficiary organization in the event. I would be one of the marshals who would accompany the six beneficiaries from their organization as they are about to experience their very first plane ride and “reach for the sky.”
