2008 Grandparent's e-Newsletter
Remember the times when you were little and most of your carefree days would be spent on a playground?
Childhood is such a precious time and the memories of it will forever be a part of us.
Much of the joys we've experienced were made possible through the people who've raised us up, cared for us and whether gently or sternly, taught us life's lessons - our grandparents.
They have influenced our future more than we realize. Let's make sure that the good they've shown us lives on in our lives and is passed on to others!
Happy Grandparents' Day on September 7, 2008!
Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while, but our hearts forever. ~Author Unknown

Grandparent Collage Frame Craft
A personalized gift any grandparent will be happy to have!
Materials: magazine pages, scissors, glue, thick markers, photocopier, white paper, blank frame (from Papemelroti, bookstores or mall home section), cloth scraps and scrapbooking components (optional)
- Take a picture of your grandparent. Make sure he/she is smiling!
- Print out the picture and enlarge using a photocopier. The height of the head should be 1/3 the size of your frame.
- Cut out the head from the picture. Set aside.
- For the back portion of the frame, gather old letters, bright full color magazine pages, other pictures or drawings. Glue onto the frame backing.
- Cut a piece of paper for the bottom banner (it doesn't have to be straight!) and with your marker, write your name (you may want to include the date or a special message as well!).
- Look for a body for the picture in the magazine or better yet, cut pieces of cloth and form a neck, torso and arms. Glue onto the backing.
- You may add lace, buttons, wire shapes, ribbons, paper cutouts and other scrapbook components to the backing.
- Glue the head picture and write the title message using your marker on the top portion of the frame. Cover with glass and secure the frame backing to finish the project.

Worthwhile things to do and go to...
Ever wonder what to do when a street kid asks you for money? We asked Kuya Joe Dean Sola of He Cares Foundation. Their mission is to get the kids out of the streets and into good homes and schools. We hope with them that one day, there will be no more Filipino children begging in the streets.
Kuya Joe Dean says you can give them something to eat but don't give them money. Instead, befriend them, be kind to them and show them they don't belong in the streets.
If you want to join others who share this vision, volunteer for He Cares foundation and other charitable organizations working to get the kids off the streets. He Cares now supports 200 scholars but it's a gruelling task to change lives. They need people to help them understand their lessons, teach them good manners and right conduct and most of all, they need people to encourage them that they have a bright future!
If you're part of a school club, organization or group of friends, you can adopt one of the He Cares areas and put up a tutoring pool of volunteers. This way, the kids will have ates and kuyas to help them along the way!
Together, we can make a difference! Visit the He Cares website for more information www.hecaresfoundation.com
