Inspired by the success of “My Dream in a Shoebox” program, Flatworld Philippines came up with the “Christmas Dream Kit.” On December 14, 2018, Flatworld PH launched the gift-giving event at the Dumanlas Elementary School in Dumanlas, Buhangin, Davao City.
As one of our Beyond Business outreach programs, we aimed to replicate the impact of “My Dream in a Shoebox” and distribute a total of 1,146 Dream Kits to children from Grades 1 to 6.
The joy of Christmas resonated with every Dream Kit that Flatworld gave. Aside from some of them funding the school supplies themselves, Flatworld staff gave time and energy, putting kits together during breaks in their work schedules. When gift-giving time came, Flatworld staff personally distributed the kits, enjoying the smiles of over a thousand happy children receiving the kits.
As they say, it takes one conviction to start a ripple of change. Like a ripple, we hope that this simple act of kindness helped the children of Dumanlas Elementary School move them a step closer to their dreams. We’re glad that for a moment, we were part of making it happen.
