Convergys PH Launches Give a Bag of Hope 2

Convergys Philippines has launched its Give a Bag of Hope 2, a nationwide employee-driven program that seeks to address the perennial problem of lack of school supplies among public school students. We are all too familiar about stories of broken young lives that could have been different if they were only given the chance to study with the basic tools they need. The lack of school supplies while in school can be a real cause for many children to drop out and forego their chances for education.   One can only imagine the feelings of children who have had to ask or beg for these supplies from their equally less-privileged classmates. It is easy to understand why some would choose to just look at their classmates, too embarrassed to ask after probably asking too many times before. The decision to just stop schooling usually comes after enduring many episodes of this and there goes the future of a child. Give a Bag of Hope Give a Bag of Hope, which is on its 2nd year, is a project initiated by Convergys Philippines that involves the participation of its employees. Employees can donate in three ways including referral, monetary pledge, and donation of school supplies. Every successful employee referral would mean one Bag of Hope to be donated to the cause. They can also choose to donate PHP 500 (the cost of one Bag of Hope) outright or arrange for salary deduction. The last option is to donate school supplies to be placed in the bags. The very first Give a Bag of Hope Event last year was a huge...

6 Tips For Getting The Cost Of Your College Degree Down

It’s not a secret that the cost of tuition is out of control. Just look at how big a platform it is right now for the presidential candidates. College fees and student debt are by far the most significant economic issues of our generation. But besides political change, what else can be done to get the cost of college down? The following are some tips to help you make your college years a little leaner, but without ruining your life. Fill Up Your Freezer When you first get to college, you’ll probably struggle with the cooking. Let’s face it, many of us haven’t done it before. And so it can sometimes be a challenge. But even seasoned cooks can find it challenging to use up all the food in their fridges before it goes off. That’s why freezing perishables is such a great idea. They’ll last a lot longer, and mean that you’re throwing out far less food. Great things to freeze include bread, leafy greens, and berries. Go Off Campus Don’t just assume that your college offers the cheapest accommodation. Often it doesn’t. You might think that’s strange. But many people are willing to pay a premium, just to be nearer to all the action. Off campus housing is often cheaper. Plus, there’s more competition among private providers to get the costs down and the quality up. You’ll be surprised by just how much more you can get for your money by moving out of college digs and into the rental sector. Study This one might seem a bit unusual, but actually studying at college can help you...
