A Trek To Remember 8 (Aklan) - An Invitation

Last summer, we joined the Kabataang Inyong Dapat Suportahan (K.I.D.S.) Foundation on their 7th Trek To Remember at Tanudan, Kalinga. You can read about it here.  Needless to say, we had an awesome travel/volunteering experience.

So anyway, the K.I.D.S. Foundation holds these kinds of treks twice a year. The next one will be this coming November in Aklan. E and I won't be able to make it this time, due to previous commitments, but we're inviting you to be a part of this amazing activity that could possibly change your life.


Below is the official invitation from K.I.D.S with all the details.
