(Inside Manila) “You can’t save the world alone.”

This is the famous tagline of the new “Justice League” comic-con poster which tells us that you definitely be needing someone to go along with in times of chaos and conflict.

Just like what our fantasy iconic heroes taught us, helping other people is just another way of expressing our love to them.

The yuletide season has come which means the season of giving is being hyped once more.

“A Hero’s Call” group was formed in order to bring hope, spread love, and help children of the war-torn Marawi City.

More than just wearing capes and swinging swords, everyone can be heroes, too, through joining this donation drive for books, toys, and school supplies for Marawi kids.

The group has teamed-up with Sinagtala, a non-profit organization which helps Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) with a special focus on children.

The organization builds toy libraries that provide psychosocial therapy sessions that will be helpful especially to Marawi children who have experienced trauma.

Donors are urged to refrain from giving pig motifs; themes of war and violence; products with names of politicians or political parties; and items with religious or Christmas themes. The gifts can be dropped off at Tavern At The Crossroads in Cubao and at Gaming Library in Makati City.

Donations will be accepted until January 20, 2018. For more information, visit the group's Donation Drive page or send a private message to “A Hero’s Call” official Facebook page.
