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!!
