Christmas is the time for giving.
Though many of us often get overwhelmed with happiness from all the gifts we receive, we must remember that giving is what this season should really be for.
Sharing your blessings with those less fortunate could be the best Christmas gift you could give yourself. Goodness has a way of coming back to you ten fold.
This Christmans, WhenInManila.com is helping out ActivAsia Inc., a Media and Channel Activation agency to give some help to those who need it the most. This year, for our annual Christmas Outreach Project: “Masayang Pasko nila Lola’t Lolo”, we have tied up with Haven for the Elderly formerly known as Golden Acres so that gift and cash donations can be solicited on their behalf.
You too can become a big part of this project and make Christmas a truly merry one for all the Lolo’s and the Lola’s who have been abandoned at the Haven for the Elderly.
Donation boxes will be placed in front of major toll plazas, toll booths and in the Skyway Customer service centers along the South Luzon Expressway to collect donations from Skyway motorists such as clothes, medicines, soap, sleeping mats, cleaning materials and other items for the residents of Haven for the Elderly.
A Giant Christmas Tree lighting event along the Sucat Southbound Exhibit Area was held to kick-off the donation drive last November 29. During the turnover of the donations, we will be holding a simple Christmas Get-Together on December 15, 2010 with the residents at the Haven for the Elderly home in Quezon City.
We encourage donations (old clothes, sleeping mats, blankets, soaps, etc.) for “Haven for the Elderly” from readers/followers of WhenInManila.com starting November 29 to December 13, 2010. Donation drop boxes can be found at the following tollbooths, toll plazas and customer service centers:
Nichols A and B toll plaza
C5 toll plaza and customer service center
Bicutan toll plaza
Sucat Northbound and Southbound Exits
Bicutan Northbound and Southbound Exits
Donations can also be dropped off at ActivAsia’s office located in 291 St. Joseph Street, Oranbo Drive, Pasig city.
