ONE SMALL ACT FOR THE PHILIPPINES

 Telling the story of the ever changing, evolving and inspiring Filipino is the foundation of the Solar News Channel. It’s the little, unknown but amazing stories of the people around us that fuel our passion to showcase the unwavering Filipino spirit. One Small Act is Solar News Channel’s venue to share these stories.

The campaign which was aptly launched during the Philippine Independence Day aims to awaken the spirit of nationalism of the Filipino. The most basic result of the campaign is for Filipinos to be encouraged to do small acts of kindness and realize that these acts of kindness will go a long way.

1millionacts-53_600

An 8-week challenge designed to encourage us to perform random acts of kindness to ourselves, loved ones, acquaintances, strangers, animals, and even the environment – to help create a happier, healthier and more trusting environment.

Think about how happy you feel when a stranger smiles at you in the street, when you donate to charity, take your dog for a walk, help someone at the park fly their kite, offer your seat to someone on the tram, or compliment your partner on how dashing they look – these are all acts of kindness, and all contribute to a happier, kinder way of life.

Pay It Forward Philippines

 Have you ever been touched by a kind gesture that turned your life around? If so, did you ever want to repay that person’s kindness, perhaps to another person? In an older movie, that concept was called paying it forward. And the whole idea of paying it forward was that if you did three good deeds to three different people, and each one of those people would do three good deeds to three others (and so on), then the world would slowly but surely become a better place. Now imagine having a day where the world basically focuses on doing random acts of kindness in an effort to pay it forward. The holiday was founded by Blake Beattie, while the effort to bring Pay It Forward Day to the Philippines was started by Charley Johnson.
