My name is Vergielyn Cubol. Let me start with a huge THANK YOU to Everyday Minerals. For the past two years, Carina, Founder and CEO of Everyday Minerals has generously backed Project Happiness in the Philippines.
I’m a mountaineer, a writer, and a storyteller. Tracing its roots to 2013, I created Project Happiness as a hike-and-share random act of kindness.
Project Happiness is dedicated to underprivileged children in far-flung mountainous towns in the Philippines. Distant, remote areas in the country are typically communities living beyond poverty lines with less accessibility to food, water and education. With my hikes and experiences around these communities, I have seen poverty beyond imagination, and so with this knowledge I started Project Happiness.
Fast-forward to today, Project Happiness now reaches bigger communities and further areas across the country with collaboration from friends, hiking communities and Everyday Minerals.
Me and the children from the last Project Happiness event would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Carina and everyone at Everyday Minerals. In December 22, 2017, we brought in Project Happiness for the third time in a distant community in Tanjay, Negros Oriental Philippines so the children in this impoverished town could experience a special kind of Christmas.

From these happy children and I, thank you so much to Carina and Everyday Minerals!!
