grown up Christmas list

Lapit na pasko. regalo ko ha. i've been joting down my grown-up christmas list for days now. i still couldnt finish. actually, i couldnt even finish #1. I always want to jump and start my selfish wishes. But that should not be. Come to think of it, what should I put on my #1 list? Hmmm... Ikaw? What were your wishes for Christmas?

That was what I wrote on my blog the other day. And I am sending this to you now for one reason. Something about Christmas (and the meaning of it). But before that let me tell you how I came up with one big plan.

I was on my way home to Calumpit, I was really thinking of something great to do, something not for me. A thing that would make me happy. Really happy. Alas, there came an idea (or a vision haha whatever) and I was instantly happy and I haven't even started doing anything yet.

This past few days, I've been collecting kiddie/happy meal toys from McDo/Jolibbee. I was actually saving them for Christmas time. I intended them really for my pamangkins. But you see they have enough toys already. And they will still have rather more toys come Christmas.

And so I planned of giving these toys to other kids. Kids who don't have new toys to play with. Kids who will need it more. You see, when I was just a kid my family don’t have much to buy me new toys (we still don’t have much though just enough haha) but I have titas, teachers from Sunday School and a lot of dear ones who have made my Christmas bright with gifts of toys and love. And now its high time to pay them forward.

I would want to touch hundreds of children but there is one big catch. I have only collected handful of toys and I still need moooore. I need friends who are willing to give ONE (just one) kiddie/happy meal toy each. (But if you wanna give a hundred toy, why not!) And here’s a bonus, with the toy you will donate I will give you a bracelet especially made for you or to whomever you wish to give it. Win-win, ayt?

So what do you think? Mail, Text or Call me if you have questions.

Merry Christmas friends. mwaah mwaaah

i know not all will be able to read this so i will mail this to everyone ok. =)
