Dear Students how would you like to help? We all know that Cancer is slowly becoming one of the major cause of death not only to adults but also to children. It is so sad to know that children are battling the disease instead of spending their time playing. You, my dear students are very lucky because you are living a healthy and normal life but for Filipino children with cancer "Normal" is living and surviving another day and spend most of that "day" battling the disease. 
Help save a child

While we use technology to entertain ourselves, spending our time playing online computer games, chatting in facebook or updating our status, Filipino children with cancer are praying that the latest technology will be able to help them defeat cancer. Kythe, a non-stock, non-profit organization has organized the Child Life Program which is designed to uplift the quality of life of children with cancer and their families through various developmental and educational activities aimed at helping them understand more about their disease. In partnership with Unilever FoodSolutions, Kythe launched the REAL LOVE CAMPAIGN to make kids with cancer able to interact and create fun and healthy sandwiches made of healthy ingredients. 
Helping Uplift the Quality of Life of Children With Cancer

So how can we help? My dear students you can help by using the technology available to you, the internet and Facebook. All you have to do is to visit the Real Love Campaign Facebook page and click on "Like" this is because every 1000 likes Unilever FoodSolutions have pledged to donate 1000 sandwiches to the different Kythe Affiliated Hospitals. Imagine just 5 minutes of your time would make a difference. 

I am moved by the support that former SLU-LHS students have given by taking the initiative of "Liking" the Real Love Campaign facebook page so in order to challenge you a lot more I am encouraging you to join several Real Love Campaign contests. Below are some links for the contests that were initiated by some bloggers in order to spread awareness about Kythe Foundation and the Real Love Campaign, in line with this I am opening a simple contest exclusively for SLU-LHS students. Since this is for a good cause I am going to give a one year domain name and basic wordpress web hosting as a prize to the student who will be able to join all the contests listed below. The criteria is as follows:
1. Join all the contests listed below 
2. List down the URL of your contest piece and post it as a comment on this blog page.
3. Be the first to submit / post the comment as stated in number2.

I am initiating this contest for SLU-LHS students to encourage you to use technology not only as means of entertainment and income generation but also as a medium to help.
