This growing online community of Ilonggos in the World Wide Web has been existing since 2005. Nestled in this corner of WWW, the SkyscraperCity Iloilo Thread (SSC Iloilo) of the SkyscraperCity.com serves as an avenue for Ilonggos around the world to converge and discuss anything concerning Iloilo. Its members are composed of Ilonggo professionals enthusiastic in the developments and progress of their beloved hometown.

And I am a proud member of this online forum.

For the very first time, SSC Iloilo thought of sharing a little bit of their blessings by organizing an Outreach Program for the selected poor children in the city. It was actually a brainchild of forumer Ken_7 that was materialized through the financial support of some generous members currently based outside of the country namely; IMPRESARIO, irong206 and adelro2049. The idea is to throw a Christmas Party for the Children of the chosen barangay.

This year’s beneficiaries are some 30 Children from the remote barangay of Hinactacan in Lapaz district. Through the help of forum member zynet and in coordination with the Barangay Council, some 30 Children were selected. Together with their parents they were treated to a Jollibee Kiddie Party yesterday, December 22, 2010 at Jollibee General Luna branch.

It was indeed a manifestation of the true spirit of Christmas – that is GIVING. We were happy to see those Children enjoying the games, entertainment and good food even for just a second.

SSC Iloilo has truly evolved from merely being an online community of internet savvy individuals to a group of people willing to extend help and give hope to the real community outside the cyber-world.

P.S. Jollibee doesn’t have generic party materials hence “Happy Birthday” is seen in its posters, balloons and invitation cards.
