LLNO launches Star of Hope

A simple sharing project launched by the Laban Leni Negros Occ (LLNO) volunteer group which envisioned the provision of a 2-kg bag of rice for economically deprived families during the Christmas season, has grown to become a testament of goodness from people all over the world.

Two days after the launching of their Star of Hope project, the LLNO reported that their activity which hangs a simple star on a Christmas tree at the LLNO headquarters for every family sponsored, has almost reached their target.

Harvey from San Mateo, Rizal (his last name unknown) who sent his contribution by G-Cash, said in a message that “I would like to hang stars with a brighter future for Rose Ann and for my sons and the next generations as well, a press statement from the group said.

Rose Ann refers to a five-year-old girl met by the volunteers during one of their teach-ins in a marginalized community, who has become their inspiration to embrace Leni Robredo’s “Radikal na Pagmahal” through ways of loving and sharing with the less fortunate.

LLNO volunteers also surprised yesterday promenaders at Bacolod City’s government center with a flash mob dance. They later proceeded to the volunteer group’s headquarters where the five-year-old Rose Ann switched on Christmas lights which included pink parols.

Rose Ann was later joined by Pinky who donated contents of her piggy bank she could hang the first star of hope on the tree.

Volunteers later hung close to a thousand stars representing donations received, after which they decided to double their initial target from a thousand families to 2,000.

In a literal application of “good ushering in more good,” a Kakampink volunteer has offered Jesky, Rose Ann’s father, a job and when he begins work on Friday, he will be moving one step out of poverty.

LLNO has listed a series of do-good activities in the coming months as their contribution to the Leni-Kiko’s tandem’s expression of pink as the “kulay ng pagmamahal.”

The LLNO volunteer headquarters, which is open 24/7, is located at the Total Gas Station, CL Montelibano St, in Bacolod City.*
