Pope Francis Portrait Drawing


I’m excited to share this portrait drawing of Pope Francis made by my daughter. I requested her to place one of Pope Francis’ memorable quotes in the portrait. I hope you’ll like it and be inspired by the message. The pontiff was in the Philippines from January 15 to 19 for a pastoral and state visit.

Things to Remember When Donating Clothes to Typhoon Victims

There are some people who seem to assume that you only need to give old clothes to typhoon victims. While giving clothes that you do not need anymore is okay, it will not be wise to give clothes that are not wearable anymore. Things have changed tremendously right now with people giving brand new clothes to typhoon victims because if you really think about it, people deserve to have nice things too right after a typhoon has wiped out most if not all of their belongings.

If in case you cannot use your ann summers vouchers in order to purchase new things to donate, there are some things that you have to remember so that you can focus on giving new clothes to the victims of the typhoon. Here are the tips that you have to remember:

    1. Make sure that the clothes you are giving out can still be used. If in case it is still your style or if it still fits you, would you wear it? Is it something that you can still wear in order to look good and feel good? If you think that you can still wear it, it is likely that those who will receive it will do too.
    2. Make sure that there are no stains or holes on the clothes. There are times when there are permanent stains on the underarm area. It will not be a good idea to give this type of clothing anymore no matter how good it still seems to look. You would not want to receive items that have already been lambasted by rodents and insects.
    3. Try not to give underwear and other underclothing because it is not sanitary anymore. This is also the same with swimsuits and camisoles.
    4. Giving clothes is not only limited to clothes that you can wear outside the house. Pajamas and other comfortable clothing are still important provided that they still look good.
    5. Make sure that you package the things neatly. Donate clothes that are clean as well so that typhoon victims do not have to worry  about cleaning the clothes before wearing them.


With all these tips mentioned above, you can donate your clothes and also feel good for being able to help people out.
