Lizzy Dee, a friend, former colleague and fellow blogger tagged me on her Facebook status asking for help to spread the news about the Pencil Project that launches, so, here I am doing my fair share of spreading this project for the benefit of young kids. As a father it is one of my obligations to nurture my kids with great knowledge so it starts with this campaign. I hope you do too. I just signed up but the number of signatures according to Lizzy Dee or I used to call here LizzyBear is way, way behind the target. Bloggers, fellow mountaineers, friends, family and relatives please support this campaign to accumulate more signatures, the more signatures we can get the more pencils will donate by the hotel owners. If you believe this pencils will help sharpen the young minds of our youth and child sign up now by click on the picture on this blog.

Philippines, 1 June 2011 — Hotelwithheart .com (HWH) in partnership with Dynamic Teen Company (DTC) launches its HWH Pencil Project Signature campaign which aims to give pencils for underprivileged children being taught by DTC. By signing up on the HWH Facebook Page, HWH will give 1 pencil to DTC for every signature collected.

“We can measure statistics of children without the means of Basic Education, we can measure poverty, we can measure the rising crime rate, and we can even measure the cost of ignorance. But can we truly measure the potential of a child?” says Dr. Rudy Sabater, HWH Director. “By providing these children with the materials wherein they can continue to learn, we are offering them a brighter future.”

Facebook is a powerful tool for sharing status, pictures, and videos. With more than a 500 million members and counting, the potential for social interaction is great. Sharing for a cause has gained ground in social media for years. hopes that letting people take part in a simple yet symbolical campaign will help Facebook users give the betterment of society.

The Pencil Project will run for 1 month starting June 1 to June 30, 2011. HWH hopes to raise 10,000 pencils to be donated to DTC as materials they could use to help children further their education despite their poverty. To support this campaign, visit HWH Fanpage at
