Last 2009, I have met a very beautiful lady and her name is Sarah. She is beautiful inside-out and I am happy to have met such an amazing person. Though our time spent together is minuscule, I am thankful that God and the universe have conspired in order for us to be friends.
This January, she have finally tied the knot with her long-time boyfriend (I guess) and I am wishing her well and a life full of blessings.
I have found out that during the wedding, they have gave away a book instead of the common giveaways we receive every wedding that we attend to. Aside from that, this book is a product of their love for each other and for the less fortunate in our country.
According to Sarah (I have copied this note in her album in Facebook where she has uploaded the pictures and inviting us to buy this book)
Exactly one month ago was our Prose & Poetry-themed wedding. Exactly one month ago, on that day of vows and promises, we also launched our first co-authored published book. Entitled Under the January Moon, it is a collection of prose and poetry on life’s nothingness and intimate meaning. As two separate individuals and as a couple, we… share the same passion for the written word. Nestled in the pages of the book are lush artworks created by our mom and uncle.
We gave the book as a token to our wedding guests and at the same time, encouraged them to buy another one or two for a friend. For each book bought, the whole amount goes to SAGIP (Sagipin ang Galing, Isip at Pangrap)- a child & youth development program of Gawad Kalinga and to Santa Maria Eufrasia Daycare Center, a school in the mountains of Sariaya, Quezon, practicing the Waldorf teaching method. Donations are made under the name of the donor guest. This advocacy angle of our wedding is our way of doing our share in making the world a little bit brighter for children.
Our book will be available in some bookstores soon but for now, you can place your order with us. The same advocacy applies: Every book sold, donation will be made under your name to our 2 chosen institutions. At P450.00/book, you will already be able to help little souls who, by learning, will hopefully be able to uplift their own lives. If interested, please send us a msg. via FB, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (Rocky&Sarah’s joint email) or contact us at 0917-5928460 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 0917-5928460 end_of_the_skype_highlighting (Sarah’s mobile #).
Thank you. This book is our testament to love and to God.
