When Breaking Point Foundation Philippines was officially established here in the country in January of 2001, the immediate plan was to have it registered at the Securities and Exchange Commission as a foundation affiliated with the Breaking Point Foundation in the U.S.

But due to uncontrollable circumstances, this did not push through as the founder of the organization in the U.S. passed away and he was the only person the Philippines director dealt with regarding this topic.

Fortunately, the work of Breaking Point Foundation Philippines continued. The organization went to different high schools in Metro Manila and in the province and continued to present its drug abuse prevention program.

Eventually, the organization tapped the internet and established an online presence through a blog. As time passed, Breaking Point was able to purchase its own domain (abusepreventionteam.org) and got its web site hosting.

The way the comparison is laid out on their site, organizations like Breaking Point Foundation Philippines won’t have a hard time finding what they need.

Last night, the director of Breaking Point Foundation Philippines, Jeffrey C. Aspacio, had the rare opportunity to introduce himself to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General/Senior Undersecretary Dionisio R. Santiago. This was done over dinner event organized by Yehey and the office of DPWH Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. through Attorney Conti.

Recently I heard in the news that the number job opportunities, both local and abroad, given by employers to a certain online job search service has gone down due to the financial crisis. This is really bad news to many job seekers. But the spokesperson of the online job search service said that employers are probably just being cautious but their company expects that more job opportunities will come in the next few months.

Speaking of job opportunities, during a recent bloggers event, in a conversation I had with another blogger, I learned that for those who are into writing, there are many job opportunities abroad and local. Freelance writing jobs abound in the internet, and in fact, my blogger friend mentioned how someone she knows earns big time from writing a Custom Essay, web content, e-books, a Dissertation, term papers, etc. So, I thought I would consider doing freelance writing, too.

So this past few days, I have been visiting sites that have lists of jobs and last night, I sent my first e-mail to an employer inquiring about the freelance, part-time writing job being offered. I just tried it out because telecommuting was allowed. There were some jobs, though, that seem too much for me. I don’t think I can handle writing 8 to 10 600-word articles per day. Maybe I would be more comfortable starting out with about 4 to 5 250-word articles and right now, that is what I’m in search of.

One idea thought of was to apply at those sites that offer Buy Essay services, editing or proof reading. A website where a student or a professional can buy original and uniquely written work, whether it’s an article, an admission essay, resume, web content, assignments, term papers, a report, a research and even a database. But since I am just an amateur writer, I am really not sure if I can handle working for that type of company.

I am just hoping that my wife and I would come across a freelance job opportunity from a local or international employer directly. Because with that, rates would be more reasonable compared to having a third party slash off a big part of the employer’s payment before it gets to us. And I’m sure that the competition is tight in this arena but I believe in a big God who can provide this job if it is really meant for us.
