Every Filipino, whatever his stature in life, can make a difference. And at the Philippine General Hospital, a chance to make a difference presents itself everyday. Every day, hundreds of indigent Filipinos flock to the PGH, often as their last resort, seeking hope in the face of a serious malady.
For many of them, what stands between them and earning a second chance in life is a few hundred or thousand pesos – the cost of some medicines or a medical procedure that they are simply too poor to afford.
We who are behind the “I am PGH” campaign believe that we all can be a source of hope for these indigent countrymen of ours. A P100.00 donation — that is ONE HUNDRED PESOS – to the PGH Medical Foundation — when done by enough of us — can create a wave of hope that will bring with it that most cherished second chance at life.
And so we call on you, as an individual, to join us in becoming a Person Giving Hope. Your organization can itself become a Partner in Giving Hope. Think about it: as your P100 buys a fellow Filipino a second shot at life, it buys you in turn that invaluable satisfaction of having been able to make a big difference in the lives of others.
What greater gift can our P100 buy than that — a sense of sharing the burden, of community, of Bayanihan?
