I always encourage my kids to share their blessings with others. Sometimes it’s hard for them to part with their things, but as the holidays approach, I’m going to ask them to sort through their toys and books to see what we can donate to Jollibee’s Maaga ang Pasko. (Have a feeling books will be easier to give away).
Jollibee’s Maaga ang Pasko is the country’s biggest and longest-running annual toy and book donation drive.
More than 5,000 kids benefited from last year’s program with over 600,000 toys and children’s books that were collected from Maaga ang Pasko donation boxes in Jollibee stores nationwide, as well as corporate donors, partners and online channels.
On its 22nd year, Maaga ang Pasko welcomes actress Jodi Sta. Maria and her son Thirdy as campaign ambassadors.
“Seeing your kid grow up to be a loving, kind and generous person is the most fulfilling thing for a parent. That’s why I wanted Thirdy to learn sharing early, and he started that right here at Jollibee,” said Jodi.
Jodi and Thirdy are inviting families to place their pre-loved gifts, toys, and children’s books inside Maaga ang Pasko boxes at Jollibee stores nationwide, or send their donations online through campaign partners Lazada and Blink and via http://www.jollibee.com.ph/MaagaAngPasko.
