The athletes’ efforts to help the worst-hit localities go beyond empathy. Alex Eala, the 13-year-old Filipina tennis prodigy who recently won the Les Petit 14 tournament in Paris, was among those who shared their acts of kindness by gathering humanitarian aid for the calamity-struck victims.

 

“I’m very happy I got to participate in this outreach activity. I don’t usually get many chances to give back and help communities that are in need. So whatever chance I have, I try to take it,” Eala said.

 

For Steven Andrews Near, member of the Philippine Volcanoes, the Time Please experience opened his eyes on how small acts of kinds can collectively make a difference to the lives of those who are in need of help.

 

“This is my first time to join Rise Against Hunger and Time Please. It is a wonderful experience because I get to give back to those who are in need. It is also great to work with other people, my teammates and Globe, in helping out those affected by the flooding,” he added.

 

Various groups across all walks of life have joined Time Please to do volunteering activities aimed at helping communities that are in need. Some of the key organizations that have joined the program are the Department of Education and Boy Scout of the Philippines.
