LAST September 24, 2011, an estimated 34,000 people, 23,000 of them children, in the Philippines and all over the world joined the Kids For Christ - Global Day of Service Part 2 (GDS 2). On this day, the  kids with their parents, families, friends, fellow students, teachers, ROCK facilitators and Couple Coordinators came together in their respective areas to do acts of service and love in various schools, barangays, home for the aged and orphanages.

The KFC GDS (Global Day of Service) was launched last year in response to the challenge of becoming “World Changers.” It was participated in by 10,000 kids from the Philippines and all over the world serving others (e.g. feeding street kids, visiting the elderly, assisting in medical missions), serving in Mass, and serving the environment (e.g. tree planting, clean-up and waste segregation).

This year, all the CFC sectors of Metro Manila and 49 provinces in the Philippines conducted their Global Day of Service in public schools, where they cleaned classrooms, planted trees, repainted walls, conducted feeding programs and medical
missions.

Outside the Philippines, Kids for Christ in some states in the US visited a rehabilitation center, entertained old folks at an elderly home, served in Mass, served in the CFC Assembly and gathered to collect donations for ANCOP. In Europe, KFC Milan and KFC Geneva served in the Holy Mass while in Seychelles, Africa, kids visited
the elderly in their homes. Kids from countries in the Middle East and Australia, among other countries, also did their part by doing different things for the environment.

The message of the yearly GDS was “Kids Can! - Kids can lead! Kids can serve! Kids can make a difference!” This was derived from the verse of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Thus, GDS 2 concentrated on the declaration that “Kids Can Lead” believing that through the kids’ service and leadership, many will be inspired to do something about changing the world and bringing it back to the plan of God. This year was once again a success and the kids are excited for the third Global Day of Service 2012.
