Outreach Program 2014

“The greatest gift you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return”

IMG_2625-45

Christmas is the season where kids and kids at heart celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and also a time of family bonding and exchanging of gifts. Not everyone gets that chance and some just want to feel loved especially the less fortunate. Every year we would organize an outreach, helping the elderly, the lost and most especially children who simply want to feel loved. This year we got the chance to put a smile on a couple of kids from a small community at Pasig City.

The outreach program was held at Manggahan High School Covered Court, Pasig City. The whole court was filled with kids of all ages. eager to play and go home with a toy or two. The place was swarming with kids and kudos to all those that made it happen as they certainly put a huge smile on the faces of these kids.

All sorts of fun activities were done during the program from Bring Me games, The Boat is Sinking and a talent show. The kids were amazing, I don’t have the guts to sing my heart out in front of a crowd but these kids, they have it their all, they sang, danced and even rapped!

During the event, we had a special guest, Fatima Soriano who is certainly someone we look up too. Why? Well for a young girl who was born with the lack of sight surely has a positive spirit. She always shows great strength as a person and her laughter is priceless oh and yes she has such an angelic voice.

What else makes kids happy? Jollibee of course! The food, the famous chicken sad now turned chicken joy again put a smile to all these kids as well. Jollibee himself was there to dance and play with the kids.

Christmas is never complete without gifts especially to kids, so to put an extra grin on their faces, each kids received a gift that they could open either on the spot or put it under their Christmas tree and open it on Christmas day :). It really is an amazing feeling seeing kids enjoying and even the parents who accompanied them feel loved and give them a little more hope in a better life. The event was such a wonderful experience thanks to the Couples for Christ commnity for having such a big heart and sharing their blessings to everyone. I would also like to thank my uncle and aunt, Venchie and Jun Paminiano  for sharing us the opportunity to bring joy to kids. 🙂

It never stops here, helping out does not have to be just during the Christmas season but the whole year round. A simple smile to a kid on the street already gives them strength and a little help by sharing them your blessings comes along way. 🙂

MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!

    This year we’re doing something similar, we’ve given up on a couple of Christmas parties to be able to join a group of homeschooling families in hosting a Christmas party for an orphanage. We think it’s important for our children to understand that the purpose of blessings is to be a blessing to others as well.

    P.S. love the image of the host dancing with the kids here. kudos to jollibee and kudos to this team!

    My family and friends do an outreach program every year, which does not just include giving toys and presents but we also organize a Christmas party for the community that my Mom has been taking care of ever since I was a little kid. It is a gesture and a tradition that I’ll continue when the time comes that I have kids of my own.

    It’s good that you do this to the unfortunates. It’s nice to share blessings once in awhile. Seeing them smile is all that matters

    very meaningful event! you’ve captured some lovely pictures of the happy children! they really do seem happy dancing with the jolibee staff. 🙂

  8. I see Jollibee! Haha, it’s like a childhood classic character. It’s so sweet to do this outreach program! The kids must have loved it!

    Jollibee really makes kids happy for some reason though when I was younger, I usually get afraid of him. Haha! I’ve always wanted to host a Christmas party for kids in my area who are not as fortunate as we are. I want them to experience a Christmas party full of fun, games & food! However, it’s really hard to host if I’m the only person working for it. Hopefully, next Christmas (2015) I would be able to make this dream come true. 🙂

    The Outreach Program is a very noble initiative that would definitely bring some joy in the lives of so many kids. What I wish for is that we do not do charity only at particular celebrations such as Christmas, New Year, and Easter, for example. We have to regularly help the disadvantaged children and constantly search for ways to make them happy and contented and give them opportunities. Wonderful post!

      We agree with you on that 🙂 As much as possible we do that all year round. Not organizing events but helping out in any way possible. Small deeds such as giving food to kids in the street and likewise to adults or even we try as much as possible to lend a hand to people who needs a boost and start a better future for them. 🙂 Thank you for your insights 🙂 Just like you we hope that everyone gets to share the little of what they have to everyone all year round :D.

    This is very similar to Christmas in Ecuador. We are having a Christmas happening for the children in our program the next Friday and they get very similar gift baggies 🙂

    This type of event just touches my heart! It is wonderful to see when a community comes together to help those less fortunate, but at Christmas it is vital for the little ones. God bless you ❤
