Gift Giving Project using my Read.cash earnings
It’s the 16th day of December, the first day of dawn mass or “simbang gabi”. I wasn’t able to attend the anticipated mass last night because I thought it would start at 8 in the evening just like the previous years prior covid. I was out yesterday to picked up something . I also went to grocery, so when I got home it’s already 7 pm. The church is a walking distance from home so I was hoping we could attend the 8 pm mass. To confirm the schedule, I checked the facebook account of the parish church nearby and I was sad because they were already starting, apparently they started at 7 pm this year. My plans of making “simba gabi” completed this year wasn’t gonna happen. I prefer antipated mass because I am more attentive during the mass unlike waking up in the morning where I feel so sleepy.
What’s the plan?
Now, speaking of plans, if you could still remember on my 2nd article this month, I mentioned about the gift giving I will do for this year. My earnings starting from December 1st up until yesterday in this platform will be used for my small project for a cause. My plan is to give random people, mostly the less fortunate one, a noche buena package. In our country, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without having a noche buena, unfortunately some cannot afford to have a decent one.
Who will benefits?
My beneficiaries are those people who lived begging for money in the overpass nearby. I always see them whenever I am out for grocery because I need to pass them to be able to go to the other side of the road. I don’t usually prefer giving them money, as much as possible I would rather give them food so that they can eat it, but there are times if I really don’t have food to give I will leave a penny so they can buy one. I know we shouldn’t tolerate them, so that they should work harder to earn money for a living, but how can they do that when they’re already old and last night I saw someone who is disable. Tell me how can he work with that situation.
Actually there has been stories about some people who use this kind of modus operandi to extort money from people like the one we see in some public transportation. It has been revealed in tv show which I can no longer recall the title. And I feel disappointed because if you would look closer at it, these people who intended to fool people by extorting money are in good shape and young. They can surely find a decent job rather than fooling a lot of people.
What’s in the package?
Yesterday when I go to the grocery, I looked for the price of the items I wanted to include in the noche buena package. My initial plan is to buy 300php worth of noche buena package but then I thought it will only benefits few people since the budget isn’t that big. So I lower it down to 200 php per package so it can accommodate more people. The package would include spaghetti pack (spaghetti noodles and sauce), a can of corned beef, a box of cheese, loaf bread and juice. Hopefully the 200php or approximately $4 is enough so I can buy these things. Consequently, upon looking at the prices yesterday, I think it will fit.
The budget and the date of gift giving
Upon checking my articles of December up until yesterday, the total money I was able to earned was $48.47 unfortunately because the bitcoin cash price keep going down, the total earnings I got on my wallet was only $33 dollars. I will just add another $7 to it from my noise earnings to make it $40 dollars. With the current rate I guess it will be converted to 2000 php, thus with the budget of 200 php per package, I will be able to give it to 10 deserving people. When? I am planning to give it by the 23rd of the month. The location is near our place. I have been planning a project like this even before but due to lack of finance I wasn’t able to do so. This time around, I will make sure to make it happen.
Christmas is the season of giving. And it has been said that “it’s better to give than to receive” With that being said, I am wholeheartedly doing my part to the community because of the blessings through earnings I receive from noise and read cash. It’s time to share and give back to those who have nothing or less fortunate people around us. I believe they too deserve to have something to put on their table on Christmas eve.
