DJ Chacha brings entertainment and gifts to the elderly.

 

DJ Chacha recognizes the loneliness the elderly feel being without their families. "I want to make them feel that they are remembered and loved even by strangers like us," she said.

 

"I am grateful for all the blessings I am receiving from our Lord and in return, I wanted to share it with other people. I’ve always had a soft spot for the elders as I don’t have grandparents anymore. Visiting GRACES makes me happy, and I will do it over and over again,” she said.

 

DJ Chacha added: “Some have wealth, some have talents, some have time. Whatever gifts we have been given, large or small, we should share generously. When we do, we make the world better for someone else and find true meaning and satisfaction in our own lives."

 

To date, Globe and Disney’s Time Please program has reached over 13 million volunteer hours through small acts of kindness nationwide. This is a testament to the Filipinos’ sense of malasakit and bayanihan.

 

As Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications, said: “We are grateful to all the volunteers who shared their time and talent to help others in need. We hope our collective effort will truly make a difference to the lives of all beneficiaries.”

 

Time Please provides a platform for volunteering activities that match individuals or groups of volunteers with various opportunities around the country.
