Steemph.antipolo: A story of us all
Steemit is a young social media platform that rewards users from everything they normally do in other forms of social media. It also encourages users to be on their utmost originality and sincerity. It is a place of being just yourself. This is just so marvelous (and at first, too good to be true) that you can hardly keep it to yourself alone. From sharing of such wonderful information, Steemit propagate to a group of friends in Antipolo City which led to a birth of the first-ever Steemit based Community in Antipolo.
Never knew that this platform will bring back together certain people that were separated by personal life activities and will be a venue for the manifestation of their once was a dream, that is to extend a helping hand to those in need.
Steemph.Antipoolo is composed of a group of Steemians located in Antipolo. These are people of different talents, behavior, wants but bounded by a common goal, that is to reach out to other people. Differences were settled for the reality of this common objective.
The People Behind
Once there was a group of youth who were gathered together as a result of the conspiracy of universe and fate. We were on another venture before. That was the time that we were learning about each other and who we are and what we want. Idealistic we are, not knowing we were of so much expectation with each other. Expectations which were not met end up producing disappointments and led to further disappointments. But we are all human beings of a different point of views. It is inevitable that at times you will not come to terms with your teammates. It is normal to have a misunderstanding at times. But unfortunately, instead of getting together...instead of knowing each other further...instead of meeting halfway we were separated by our contrasting perspectives. And there was no other way but to disband.
Pursuing our own separate paths, we still did succeed in our endeavors. We were still able to earn well. We were being able to provide our needs and wants. But once again fate brought us all back together. After a period of dispersion, we become more mature towards the view of life. Lessons were learned. After a considerable space against each other, wounds were healed. Time is really a great healer. Sometimes if a relationship would not work when you are still together, try to walk away for a while to find peace and ponder upon what was said and done.
Bringing all the lessons from our past experiences, we became more open and understanding with each other. Maybe all those conflicts before was meant to happen so will be stronger and wiser now. So, we will be more sensitive and be caring about other people's feelings. This time everyone is equal. No superiority. No power trips. Less bullying. Though in any group there will always be someone who leads the pack, still everyone is as important as the leader. No one is a filler.
Steemph.Antipolo wasn't planned. It just came spontaneously. From an event resulting in another event, Steemph.Antipolo was born.
During the time that we went our own separate ways. One of us discovered Steemit. Regardless of what has happened in the past, he was so generous of sharing this brand new platform to his former teammates. This is the main reason why all of us are certified Steemians.
It all started with a mere catching up dinner that turned into a meeting. With all the success they were reaping, an urge to share the blessings they were receiving is overwhelming. So this first few "members" tackled making an outreach program. Just a simple act of random kindness.

But a good deed will always bear fruit. By the aid of word of mouth, people keep on pouring to participate in what was just a topic of a simple conversation. Since the "idea" is so remarkable, it ignites the spark of many. An unorganized gathering came with this familiar faces. Discussions about materializing the idea of an outreach program alongside with catching up sets in countless times. And from a gathering to another gathering, more and more familiar faces came in. And these people found themselves reunited again.
Fate is so unpredictable that after all that happened it brings people back together. No need for explanations and "sorry".No need for blaming and regretting. There was only a spark for a common goal, that is to come together, work as a team once again in the service of those at the bottom of the society.

With all of this unexpected events, Steemph.Antipolo was born. The first ever Steemit based organization in Antipolo. Who would have thought that this incredibly generous platform will be the driving force for this once was a disbanded group to assemble once again for a common good.
And so, Steemph.Antipolo conducted their very own Steem Share outreach program at a local public school ( we will be making a separate blog about this). Sharing a portion of your blessing is such a noble job. Even if it is just a small act it will mean a lot to other people.
[Our Steemshare Program]
Our mission is to warm people's hearts with acts of kindness. That unexpected random kindness we forget nowadays. Though we are just ordinary people of no wealth and connections we believe that we have much to offer to the community outside our community. No single man has the ability of not giving. As a saying goes, "Only empty hearts would not know how to reach out not empty pockets." Aside from treasure, there are other ways to reach out. We can offer our strength, intelligence, time and presence.
We envision a society of understanding, sharing, caring and appreciation for others. No act of kindness will be left in vain but rather it will be remembered and will be grateful for. This will be pass on form generations to generations. Every one is important. Everyone is a major part of the community.
Steemph.Antipolo is not just our story. It is the story of everyone. It is a story of friendship, of falling apart and redemption. We are of no difference to other all people out there who deep in their hearts also longs for helping those at the bottom. We are just plain ordinary people of no big name...of no wealth. of no masters degree, of no profession but with a vigor of reaching out. We are on our first steps and we will continue walking towards our dream on a journey of making this world a better place.
