Christmas at Marriot Hotel

Children of the SOS Children's Village (a home for abandoned and orphaned kids) in Talamban, Cebu are hoping to get their Christmas wish fulfilled. Marriot hotel in Cebu is now taking the initative to be the kid's bridge to the Santas in each of us.

They're inviting good hearted people to choose an SOS child to give a gift to. How? Photos of the kids are on the Christmas tree located at the hotel lobby. Each Photo would indicate a kid's Christmas wish. Anyone may buy the specified gift or may just donate an amount for the hotel to do the shopping. Simply put, you choose a kid and you'll be his/ her Santa for this season.

The Children will be at the hotel on Dec 21st, 3pm for the gift giving. And the "santas" are very much invited to hand over the gifts personnally.

I'm planning to share some of my blessings in the same manner. Before I was planning to spend my birthday shopping for groceries and giving it randomly to people living in the streets. Somehow that didn't materialize as I was travelling and spent my last birthday alone outside manila. But hopefully I could do something special this Christmas. If you'd want to join, let me know. Before, my girlfriend would put up a personnal drive collecting toys, which she then will give to the Children's ward in PGH. These are small things that makes people feel special, even for just that one small encounter.
Wanna join me in this endeavor?

For the mean time, here's a song from Michael Buble, My Grown Up Christmas List...

GROWN-UP CHRISTMAS LISTMichael Buble Version
Do you remember me?I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasiesWell, I’m all grown-up nowCan you still help somehow?I’m not a child, but my heart still can dream
So here’s my lifelong wishMy grown-up Christmas listNot for myself, but for a world in need
No more lives torn apartThat wars would never startAnd time would heal all heartsEvery man would have a friendThat right would always winAnd love would never endThis is my grown-up Christmas list
What is this illusion called the innocence of youth?Maybe only in that blind belief can we ever find the truth
No more lives torn apartThat wars would never startAnd time would heal our heartsEvery man would have a friendThat right would always winAnd love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas listThis is my only lifelong wishThis is my grown-up Christmas list
