StarOcean spreads the LOVE

Last January 11, StarOcean Manning employees headed to Little Mary’s Home in Merville, Parañaque and gave Christmas presents and grooming kits to abandoned or neglected children. This non-stock, non-profit foundation is currently being taken cared of by the Apostles of the Holy Rosary Sisters. 

What made the gift-giving more special is the fact that the goodies distributed were donated by children of StarOcean employees.

The folks at StarOcean were more than happy to go out of the office and spend a few hours with their very own “StarOcean KIDS.” The staff taught the children the importance of generosity and encouraged them to enjoy the gift of giving.

“I felt good about myself,” Front Office Coordinator Heike Hernandez said, “For me it was a great experience being with the lovely kids."

StarOcean Executive Assistant/Deputy QR Frances Jana Sasis added, “It’s really a heartwarming experience. As Mother Teresa states not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love. Helping  orphans in our own little way is a powerful way to boost our own happiness.  My realization is, in this world people have more serious issues than what we face in our life. By helping them, we can see the misery of life and remind ourselves the value of our comfortable life.”

Towards the end of the activity, the children were further treated with delicious snacks. In return for the gifts they received, the StarOcean KIDS of Little Mary’s Home gave the office staff an endearing dance number as a gesture of thanks for their post-Christmas party.
