Mommy Bloggers and All Together in Dignity Foundation at Fun Ranch
On it's 4th year, Fun Ranch invited Mommy Bloggers and the kids from All Together in Dignity Foundation in a morning filled of love and Christmas spirit. The fast approaching celebration of Christmas reminds us that it is not just the celebration of the birth of Jesus do we see the tue meaning of Christmas. For me Christmasis also being able to give and share some of the blessings we had and most of all is by being able to share one's self to others.
I was fortunate to be among the Mommy Bloggers invited because I was able to spend and share my time with some of the less-fortunate kids that A.T.D. ( All Together in Dignity ) is currently helping. As a mom of 2 boys (the eldest is 6yrs.old and the youngest is 4yrs..old), I always try to to teach my kids the gift of sharing, not just to themselvesbut also to our brothers and sisters who are less-fortunate. Whenever I see children begging in the streets or for those kids risking their lives begging in public utility vehicles, I feel sad because I don't think I'll be able to help them just by giving them money or food. They will always resort to begging if I always do that.
Last saturday's event ( Dec.11,2010), answered my prayers. To further explain this,I have to share with by back-tracking a few months ago, I have this one friend that maybe in one way or another I have hurt her. This friend told me that we became friends for a reason. She hoped that she has touched my life in a way that she was able to share her life not only in terms of giving material things but also the " the giving of one's self". With what she said, I came to realize that she was right. you can help others by sharing yourself and learning from your past mistakes. To that dear friend, Thank you! No words is tantamount to what you have taught me.
In this event, I was able to share my time with A.T.D. kids after the Event. After the event we were informed by the very nice Marketing Manager of Fun Ranch, ms. Ana May del Rosario to Pick 3 kids from the foundation to look after while enjoying the rides outside . I chose 3 boys so they could easily bond with my 2 boys which i brought also to the event. My boys did have a great time with the 3 kids. They also became instant friends. I am forever thankful to the Fun Ranch team for these experience. I hope to participate more in these kind of activities. Kids from A.T.D. stayed only till 3p. Time sure flies when you're having fun especially if that place happens to be at Fun Ranch.
After that, It's time for me and my kids to bond together exclusively!!! We tried all the rides from the Bumper Car, Fun Ranch Express Train, Bumper Boat, Ferris Wheel, Plane Pirate Ship, Swing Rides, Carousel, Space Quest and the "bestseller" for me and my kids is the Go! Speed Racing ( a mini-go-kart track).
Fun Ranch is the only family Entertainment Complex with activities and establishments that cater especially to kids and their families. The theme is a Ranch in the center--wherein you will see the Big Red Barn --a kid-friendly Restaurant with free magic show on weekends. Isn't that great? Dining while enjoying a fantastic Magic Show.
I also had the opportunity to have a talk with very warm and accommodating President of Fun Ranch, Mr. Vince Padilla. He told me their family decided to put up Fun Ranch 4 years ago , because they always encounter the same problems organizing parties--separate billing for table and chairs rental, food, venue and etc., So the idea is this, Why not put up their own party place! Fun Ranch boasts that if you have your party here, all the party needs can come in one package. Their party packages are very light on the pocket. For example , you can have your party here and pay it in 0% interest-free for 3months thru your CitiBank or Metrobank Credit card. Their party packages includes free use of the venue, Birthday Streamer( on loan),name tags , free use of the sound system, cake stand, Play area, Free entrance to Active Fun for the birthday celebrant, kiddie table set-up, CCTV Security Coverage and alot more!
Their party packages for Food like the kiddie-plated meal starts at P150 and their drinks at P40, but if you opt for bottom-less, you only have to pay P50. Whoa! that was an amazing deal ! And you can only experience that at Fun Ranch!
Aside fro the rides, there is also the Leaps and Bounds, an inflatable playground with different kinds of inflatables while Family Fun Zone has the gutter-less Duckpin bowling and Mini-golf.
Fun Ranch has become a go-to place for families all over the metro. So come and join the fun at Fun Ranch, because KIDS DO RULE HERE!
Thank you Mommy Lace And Jeff Siy of Boy Kuripot and most of all to Fun Ranch team headed by the President, Mr.Vince Padilla and the Marketing Manager Ms. Ana May Del Rosario for the wonderful event!!!
