Mahatmi Gandhi once said that as human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – it is in being able to remake ourselves.
This is the idea behind the Be The Change (formerly known as Lian Caleb foundation), a charity initiative by a graduate student named Raianne Mata.
“I named it Be The Change because it serves as a reminder for me to lead people into having better lives by extending a hand; I want it to become a lifestyle,” said Mata.
Since 2009, Mata have been joining and conducting small charity events, inviting friends, colleagues, and relatives to be involved in any way that they can.
This Saturday, November 15, she shares another opportunity to help.
Happening at the Philippine Orthopedic Center, from 1pm onwards, is the trauma healing workshop for the benefit of kids of Kythe foundation.
“It is intended to ‘heal’ the cancer patients emotionally and psychologically through the medium of art. This way, we’ll let them express whatever their hearts contain in their continuous effort to fight cancer.”
“We encourage volunteers (but NOT required) to bring a token for the kids (50pax). Any help will do.” she added.

Be the Change. Ignite Hope. Cheers to a Better Tomorrow.
