Celebrating Christmas Family Traditions and Acts of Giving with World Vision
The holiday season is a time of joy, togetherness, and traditions. As the calendar flips to December, many families around the world start preparing for Christmas, a celebration that goes beyond the exchange of gifts and indulging in delicious feasts. It’s a time to create cherished memories with loved ones, reflect on the year that’s passing, and to give back to those less fortunate.
Christmas traditions are an integral part of the holiday season. From decorating the Christmas tree to baking cookies and other treats for your guests, Christmas becomes the most wonderful time to come together and bond.
Of course, in the Philippines, how can we forget the fun tradition of Christmas caroling and playing Secret Santa, with giving and receiving gifts as a central part of holiday. Gift giving symbolizes love, thoughtfulness, and appreciation for one another.
However, in the midst of all the festivities and merrymaking, it’s essential to remember the true meaning of Christmas – the spirit of giving and caring for others.
World Vision, a global humanitarian organization, focuses on helping children and families in need. By sponsoring a child through World Vision, you can create a profound impact on the life of a child living in poverty.
Sponsorship through World Vision involves a monthly donation of just Php 750 or Php 25 a day that goes toward providing a child with essentials such as education, healthcare, clean water, nutritious food, and more. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to establish a personal connection with the child you’re supporting. You can exchange letters and photos, creating a meaningful bond that can last for years.
You can also participate in World Vision’s current campaigns which include the #GirlsCan initiative, Level Up, Childhood Rescue, Noche Buena, and Bawat Batang Pinoy Malusog projects which aim to provide for specific needs of Filipino children.
So, this Christmas, as you gather with your loved ones and partake in your favorite family traditions, consider how you can extend the spirit of the season to those less fortunate. By doing so, you’ll not only create lasting memories with your family but also bring hope and joy to a child in need. Sponsoring a child through World Vision is a powerful way to pay it forward and make a real difference in the world.
