Yes, that’s the question. Let’s face it: getting over the first quarter of 2020 was as dreadful as finishing your dental appointment. It was painful and full of foreboding about the next turn of events. And as we have it, the situation became a full-blown pandemic.
To many, 2020 was a dark year. The kind that makes you want to tear it off the history books as if this can change the year magically. Before burying 2020 alongside the memory of looking desperately for face masks and not finding any, there were some (very) bright spots in SPECS Foundation’s 2020. Read on and find out.
We’ve talked at length about this project that helped an unbelievable number of barangays and communities. To get the whole picture, our Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram accounts, and this website can give all the information one needs.
With the support of our donors, funders, and sponsors, SPECS Foundation was able to help people affected by different calamities. We’ve brought food, medicines, blankets, and other essentials to victims of the typhoon series that entered the country.
3.Vegetitos and Vegetitas of SPECS Foundation
This project is part of the Puso Initiative but still worth mentioning separately. What’s great about this was the idea of a circular economy that was the principle behind it. Buying vegetables from Benguet farmers who experienced difficulties selling their produce to helping people in Metro Manila have access to vitamin-rich vegetables was the perfect way to help more people.
2020, An Excuse or A Reason?
2020 has given us an excuse not to plan big parties (all for good reasons). Safety should come first. But for SPECS, 2020 was a reason to celebrate the human spirit. It was the year that we saw pure love and concern from all walks of life. And we all saw that 2020 was good.
