We planned everything out for 2 weeks: the food, the decorations, the packing of goodies, the handing out of tickets, the games, the agenda--- everything.
This experience made me believe that people as young as we are could also help spread happiness to the world!
Our program was entitled "Live To Give". We were able to host around 90-100 people, more or less.
7am. We packed a bunch of candies into 102 lootbags for the children.
The bags of donated goodies that were collected from nursery- 4th year highschool students.
The bags all had 1 box of alaska powdered milk, 1 pack of milo, 5 packs of pancit canton, 2 bowls of Lucky Me soup, 1 pack of cupcakes, 1 kg brown sugar, 1 kg rice, 1 kg oatmeal, 2 cans of corned beef, 1 can of luncheon meat, and lastly, toys.
Boodie and I playing with the toys! Ah, heaven!!
We all agreed that THIS was one of the freakiest stuffed toys we saw in our lives. eerr.
Packing, packing, and more packing!!
Wow, good work, decorations committee! The court looked magnificent!!!
The boys helping out bring the goodies to the covered court.
Boodie, Geonah, and I hosting the "Bring Me" game!
We had a lot of fun games for the kids like Bring Me, Pass the Ball, and Relay.
For the adults, we had the infamous Hep Hep hooray!
Lola Tacing. I will always remember her:) She was sooo sweet and kind. God bless her!:)

The grand prizes!
This experience was soooo life-changing.
First, I felt happy because my batch became CLOSER than EVERRRR.
I love 4th year batch 2012!!
We became one family, and we loved each other very much.
We laughed together, planned things out together, served together, shared together, packed together--- we basically needed each other to make this possible!
I am blessed to belong to such a loving batch!!
It felt SO GREAT to be used as an instrument to be a blessing to others.
I can't believe how simple our guests were! Simple things that didn't seem to matter to me actually meant the world to them!
The kids delighted in candies and toys, and the adults delighted in cans of corned beef that we gave away as prizes!
This Christmas, let's not forget how God gave His one and only son, Jesus Christ, for us. It was the greatest present of all time. So just like Him, let's also share and give to the people around us.
That's what Christmas is all about, after all :) It is a time of giving!
Have a blessed Christmas, friends!!
