“I’m always thankful to my parents for sharing their foundation to us. To help out. I remember my father, Josefino Bondad, told me that it’s better to give than to receive. While my mother, Remy Bondad keeps on sharing that it’s better that it’s you who is in the giving side. I’m always grateful and it’s human nature to help out. We will keep on doing this and we believe that in giving, you’ll receive more too. Might be in some ways, the universe will make a way as always.”- Grace Bondad Nicolas
