How many days left until Christmas? For all we know, everyone is getting excited as they decorate Christmas lanterns and colorful lights to brighten up their houses. Others may even shop for gifts as early as now to beat the holiday rush. But we all look forward to Christmas day.
This is how Filipinos celebrate Christmas but it is not all about expensive gifts, lavish parties and bountiful preparation of food. The way to celebrate Christmas in the most meaningful way is to commemorate the birthday of Jesus Christ and gift givings through a more generous, deeper, in touch and in tune with that this Holiday Season is all about.
As a way of giving back the blessings Seda Abreeza have numerously achieved this year, it dedicates this Christmas season to the two charities, Hero Foundation and Smile Train, they have chosen as relevant partners whom they cared for deeply and supported for many years.
Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate. Guests and partners may also partake in this gift giving by buying the Christmas Tree ornaments displayed for P100-P300 and proceeds will go to Charity.
On the otherhand, Help Educate and Rear Orphans (HERO) is an organization that aims to give assistance to children of our fallen and incapacitated soldiers. Thus, part of the revenues for December and January shall be donated to HERO Foundation.
Last November 21, 2017, Seda Abreeza’s Christmas Lighting Ceremony was held successfully as highly respected executives of the ANFLO Group, the Consul Generals based in Davao City, Dept. of Tourism, City Tourism Office City Council, Davao Chamber of Commerce, friends from the press and other special guests attended to witness the ceremonial gift giving with Smile Train and HERO Foundation representatives together with patients and scholars.
