"Husay and Malasakit" in Everything We Do

If there's one gift that you could give to the world, what would it be? If you can make other people's lives better, how would you do it? What are the things that you are willing to give up just to make other individuals smile and experience happier lives? Are you willing to offer yourself to be of service to the community? To the people surrounding you? Most importantly, can you give without expecting anything in return?

Mother Theresa, a selfless woman who has spent her life helping those who are in need, once said "At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread — but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing — but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks — but homeless because of rejection." Imagine a world where everyone acts like Mother Theresa, devotes one's life to serving other people, sharing one's life with the community and giving whatever one has wholeheartedly. For sure, the world will be a better place to live in. There would be peace and happiness in our minds. Everyone will live in harmony, love and compassion.

I am happy to say that for the past few years in my life, I have shared a part of me to others. It feels great to be surrounded with people who inspire me to share my time and my blessings to those who are in need. To show compassion in every situation I encounter makes me feel more human. Allow me to share some of the "amazing moments" in my life where I have opened myself to serving other people and how they inspired me to live life to the fullest!

KK and Davao Bloggers with the Children from the Providence Home of St. Joseph

"I hope, wherever these kids are today, that they may find the right families who will accept and love them with no conditions. I hope that the toys will remind them that life is beautiful. There is no room for sadness and bad feelings because we are not born to feel them. We are here to share the love to everyone and to give back whatever it is that we receive."

Children's Day 2013
"Knowing that you have shared something to somebody is one of the best feelings in this world. The real measure of happiness is not having everything in this world but rather sharing whatever it is that you have to other people. It is by giving back that you actually receive more in life."

Project Hygiene Kits - A Davao Bloggers Project for the Victims of Typhoon Haiyan

"All 1115 hygiene kits plus other donated products were already turned over to Ateneo de Davao University for distribution to typhoon Yolanda survivors in the Visayas Area... It wasn't easy but we made it! At first, we thought it would not even be possible to gather such amount and products in a certain time frame but with all your help, it was actualized more than what we imagined. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you very much and may God bless you more and more!"

Children's Day 2014
"Indeed, it was a fun and memorable day! I would like to extend my deep gratitude to Naprey for always inviting me to be part of his charity events. Whenever I spend a day with him and the kids, I am reminded of how magical it feels to give back without asking anything in return. The best feeling in this world is not having the things we want but rather knowing how to share every little thing that we have."

Of the above-mentioned stories, the one that really moved me was the Project Hygiene Kits where me and my blogger friends spent sleepless nights to gather donations from different persons all over the world for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Bagyong Yolanda). We were overwhelmed by the support we received from different blogging communities, entities and individuals. In fact, we went beyond our target and were able to gather more than 1,000 kits for the victims of the calamities in Tacloban. With the help of the generous pledgers and AdDU, we were given an opportunity to show compassion to the people in Tacloban. Indeed, it actually felt good when we all finished packing the hygiene kits and turned them over for distribution.

UNILAB - "Husay at Malasakit" (Excellence and Compassion)

I would like to take this opportunity to give recognition to the country's biggest Pharmaceutical company, Unilab, for choosing to be in service to others who are in need. This company believes in the power of "husay and malasakit" which is probably the reason why they are successful in the pharmaceutical industry in the Philippines. Unilab does not only concern itself with generating profits but also serving the communities by coming up with products which are 100% safe in order to take care of the Filipino people better.

Unilab always place the health and safety of every Filipino on top of the priorities. The Filipino are always at the core. All their products are available anywhere in the Philippines (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao) as it is their objective to reach out to every individual in need of superior and affordable healthcare items. This company believes in the spirit of genuine concern to make the lives of other people better.

In Unilab's newest TVC, it shows their "husay at malasakit" thrust. With this ad, it reminds everyone that "what matters the most is the number of lives we touch when we reach our triumphs". Please check the video below:

Makabago man ang proseso, hindi nawawala ang puso. Bawat hakbang, may husay... Bawat galaw, may malasakit para lahat ay masaya, masigla, panatag. Ganyan kami nagsimula, ganyan kami magpapatuloy.  Husay at malasakit, Unilab 'yan.

  1. You are doing something amazing to the people of the community. It is a great cause that certainly make other people feel they are loved. Continue doing it. Am impressed.

  2. That's right, giving is definitely a good act. It does not only make someone feel good, it also makes the giver feel good about oneself.

  3. This is a great campaign by DB and Unilab. Congrats guys for a successful event and hope to you done a rerun of Children's Day in 2015.

  4. The thing that we want to change is the EGO we have within our self. This divide the things in many ways, to find chaos and separate us to the real world.

    If we want our world to motivate along to something better and attain a difference we should GIVE EXCELLENCE in everything we do and HELP with COMPASSION.

  5. SO happy to see Davao bloggers in action. I could have joined the advocacy if I'm in Davao. Mother Theresa is always a good example of "Husay and Malasakit". Thanks to UnilabPH for helping this kind of advocacy.

  6. Giving and sharing to the needy really gives feeling of satisfaction. It makes your whole being complete. Sharing is the real meaning of life.

  7. I really admire the Husay at Malasakit initiative by Unilab and they have really maintained a good social corporate responsibility program.

  8. Keep up the great work you're doing Algene! When you share what you do, you also inspire others to help out and seek the groups/non-profits that matter to them.

  9. Bless you for your good causes! I wish to be a part of a blogger group like yours to spread goodness. Better do my research.
