Posted:So I just got back from doing volunteer work in the Philippines and I thought I'd share a few photos with you guys.



We were planning to visit an Orphanage while we were there, so before I went I thought I'd go down the 100yen shop and buy a few pairs of socks and tennis balls and teach them how to Poi.



I wasn't sure how they'd take it but they really loved it and a few kids took to it like a duck to water.



So I thought I'd share a couple of photos with everyone here as a thanks for helping me remain a Poi addict long enough to get the chance to pass it on.
