A message from Jade I. Sayson, ARM Editor-in-Chief:

“Hello angel risers! We all know that with the colder weather and shorter days comes the smell of autumn in the air, excessive pumpkin spice lattes, and cozy sweaters. The hustle and bustle of September has finally come to an end, and as we’re trying to recover from the busy month whether it was with school or work, the changing of the seasons has never been so refreshing. So what better way is there to relax and unwind than to sit down with a cup of coffee and our latest issue? We wish to continue inspiring you as always with one-of-a-kind stories from our writers and with hopes that their personal experiences will encourage you to go out and make the most of your own. As the holidays get closer, remember to take some extra time to show those who matter to you some extra gratitude and lovin’! There are so many things to be thankful for every day, big or small; sometimes we forget to take the time out of the busyness of our lives to pay attention to the little details!”

About the Foundation

Project Michelangelo is an independent and private organization established in 2011 and conceived from human elements of compassion and hope mobilized into angelic-like response for humanity through educational endowment for needy but deserving children and young adults, assistance to children with cancer and life-threatening diseases, helping grant a wish for a terminally-ill child, and partnership with rescue organizations in times of calamities and disasters.

The name Michelangelo means “messenger who resembles God” and is the image and essence of the foundation’s mission in delivering hope and watching over to empower the children of the world and their appointed guardians. Our commitment to accountability and unique innovations will lead us into the heart of communities anywhere on the planet where these children belong through collaborative means. We believe in hope to change the world into a better place to live in through education and setting of a moral code through passionate belief in the Almighty in the hope of finding and nurturing the next generation world leaders.

Project Michelangelo revolves around the belief that teaching a paradigm shift in the minds of children from helpless to powerful can help them achieve any dream in life they can ever imagine. This Foundation is based in Illinois, USA and currently collaborates with the Republic of the Philippines.
