A Round Tuit


Jerome: Hello?
Me: Jerome...Hi this is Chesca.
Jerome: Whooo?
Me: Chesca. Silva.
(dead silence...me thinking...oh sh**...maybe he does not remember me)
Jerome: From U.P.??? (University of the Philippines)
Me: Yes!!!
Jerome: Chesca, it is nice to hear from you after 20 years...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I finally called an old friend of mine (some friend, I am).
He lives in Manila.
His family owns CDO, the meat processing factory.
I told him about Helping Hams (our project this Christmas to distribute Hams to families of street children)
I asked him if he could:
1. supply the hams at a hefty discount, so as to be able to reach more families.
2. donate free hams, so as to be able to reach more families.
He agreed.
