The activity is very simple. Plant. :)
We volunteered ourselves on the said activity for the following reasons:
a) Leave credit/s - yes, you heard it right! You volunteer and right away you gain one leave credit. Isn't that nice? Where in the world you'll get an extra leave credit just by planting? Not much effort was even exerted.
b) Road trip - take the chance to go on a road trip at no cost! Just enjoy the trip and wait til you get to the destination.
c) Fame (?!?) - pwede na.. Just try to imagine having your pictures taken while planting. Artista? haha.. Not much. May nakatingin sa camera, merong hindi. Mas maganda yung stolen shots eh. May mga camera-conscious. Kailangan munang mag-pose at kunin ang tamang anggulo bago picture.
d) Awareness/Assistance - Simply helping Mother Earth. Pay back time, ika nga. Sino pa ang magtutulungan kundi tayo-tayo lang? And it's a great feeling that you're helping others. Di kailangan ng pera. Just effort and willingness to help. Kakaiyak. Kaka-touch.
e) Fun! - Mas masarap mag-work when you're with your friends. It's a different bonding. Tulungan sa pagbungkal ng lupa, sa pagwalis, pagbunot ng damo at pagtanim. Pagod man ang lahat after a hard day's work pero kitang-kita ang mga ngiti sa labi.
Honestly, I am always looking forward for these kinds of activities. Kahit wala ng leave credits. Just the thought that you're doing this as a sign of helping others and showing your compassion towards nature and mankind.
