My 2 Year Old Snapshot is Calendar Worthy! (March 2013)

So I got a nice surprise yesterday when a colleague called me and asked me about which photo I took for our company calendar. I totally had no idea the first few seconds, what she was talking about, but then I remembered I joined a photo contest last October 2012. Winners will get a chance to get a GE camera and their photos published in the company calendar. It was so long ago, I thought, maybe I just didn't make the cut. Turns out, I made it. Yey! I got the October page of the company's ASEAN 2013 calendar. Photo entries came from all over ASEAN and I got lucky enough to be chosen. I'm just not sure if everyone chosen will be getting the free camera.

They wanted a photo telling a story of why I love working for GE. I submitted 3-4 photos and I guess they liked the photo of the street children above. Here's what I wrote about the photo, it wasn't shared in the calendar :

"I work in Finance and sometimes I don’t feel how exactly I’m helping the world by working for GE. I just know that somehow, I’m making a difference by doing my job to the best of my abilities. So when we have GEV activities, my heart swells with pride when I see immediate effects on the people we are helping. Take for example these kids, they were so happy to see us because they know that for that one day during that week, they will have a free meal and time to play with some adults (some of them do not have parents and most are abused). For a day, they will feel safe and loved. These GEV activities make me appreciate what I have and realize that I have more to give."

That photo is over 2 years old. I took it during an outreach activity in Pasig last October 2010. I wonder how the kids are doing. They don't even know their faces got published in our calendar. Hope they are doing better these days.
