Daughter # 2 and I went to the supermarket to buy 3,800 Peso-worth of groceries. Why that exact amount? Her grade 6 homeroom class was assigned to give gifts to three janitors in line with the school's Custodian Day. The donations amounted to 3,800 and more. Her class and daughter # 2 decided that the best practical gift would be groceries. She chose basics like sugar, milk, coffee, chocolate dink, cooking oil, rice and canned goods. Daughter # 2 also bought some snacks and cookies. She was very careful not to overshoot the budget that at the check out she was carefully watching if barcode scanner was working just fine. The following day, she said the three janitors were so happy with the "party" and gifts her class sponsored. All three janitors cried. Tears of joy I presume.

  2. awww... that was touching. sometimes you'd never really know how these things would affect the people you're nice to. the telenovela queen in me would like to think that they're probably running out of stocks themselves and wouldn't know where to go for them (since payday is still so many days away) and then out of the blue, this happened to them.

    your daughter and her class deserve a pat on their backs for a job well done. hopefully this would really teach them to be charitable and to be grateful also for the things that they have in their lives.
