Chummy Chum Thanks Several Generous Sponsors

We would like to thank the following kind-hearted individuals for their donations to CCF:

1.  Thank you Ms. Jentricia for your donation of juice, mineral water and cupcakes. We met Ms. Jentricia during an event for cancer kids last July 2012. She is an Overseas Filipino Worker and every time she has extra blessings, she donates to us through her brother, by buying cupcakes and juice packs for the beneficiaries of CCF.

2. Thank you to Ms. Ruth for the toys, cupcakes, juice, etc. We met Ms Ruth when she asked for our help to organize an outreach activity when she vacationed here in the Philippines. Ms. Ruth is shy and she did not want to tell anyone that she’s the one celebrating her birthday for that event. She told us that she experienced a different kind of happiness that particular day and since then, she shares her blessings to CCF beneficiaries.

3. Thank you to Sir Gary & Ms. Elaine for donating toys and an Ultrasonic Scaler to JJASGEN. Sir Gary is Ms. Elaine’s brother. We met Ms. Elaine when she asked us to accompany her for an outreach activity in a cancer ward in Quezon City. She was reduced into tears seeing the plight of the cancer patients, one has bulging eyes, some have big lumps on different parts of the bodies. This prompted her to give generously even if there’s no occasion. Thank you for your help for the month of July.

4. Thank you also to Ms. Elyn who sponsored popcorns for 700 kids, cupcakes and juices for 300 kids, last June even.

May the good Lord continue to shower you with His abundant blessings.

Chummy Chum Brought Joy to SPED and Wasted Pupils at RC San Pedro South’s Project Launch

CCF Team went to Laguna Resettlement Community School (LRCS) in San Pedro City Laguna upon the invitation of Rotary Club of San Pedro South as they celebrated the inauguration of their Potable Water System Project and grand launching of the Daily Feeding Program that will greatly benefit the SPED and Wasted students of the said school. 
We can compare the event to a 3-in-1 coffee for the multiple projects of RCSPS on the said school with the help of their partners, just like Century Pacific Group for the 1-year Daily Feeding Program and Planet Water Foundation for the installation of a water system that guarantees safe and clean drinking water, not only for the students, but also to the poor residents residing near LRCS. 
While the program was ongoing, we set up our table and started to prepared the popcorn. As the speakers onstage was explaining the importance of the projects, we noticed that the children were staring at the popcorn and toys laid out on the table which will be given to them after the program. 
Only the parents and teachers were the ones listening and paying attention to the speakers. We were able to distribute 170 popcorns to the delight of the children. Chummy Chum came out and mingled with the children and had their pictures taken with him.

Thank you to Ms. Ruth for some of the toys, and Sir EJ for the cupcakes and juice.

Chummy Chum Spread Joy and Cheer to Sick Kids at National Children’s Hospital OPD

CCF conducted a hospital visit to National Children’s Hospital Out Patient Department (NCH-OPD).
We treated several sick children, especially those with cancer. We’ve been doing this for five (5) years already, some of the patients have already passed away and some are continuously fighting the Big C. 
We take pity especially to those new cancer patients and are clueless of what to do. CCF has become a bridge, for these less fortunate kids, not only to avail free medicines but also find them sponsors for their expensive medical treatment. 
God is truly good as He continue to use us as His instrument to help these poor children. 
On our part, we consider it a big reward just to see them smile and lessen the burden that these kids feel.
Big thank you to Ms. Elyn Aracid for the additional refreshment.

Chummy Chum with SM Foundation Free Medical Mission at Earnshaw Community

CCF Team headed to Earnshaw, Sampaloc City wherein 70% of the residents are classified as poor. 
That is why when SM Foundation distributed stubs for their free medical mission, the poor people of the said community didn’t even hesitate and grabbed the opportunity offered to them. 
When CCF got to the newly-constructed health center, the registration started. The said health center was built courtesy of SM Foundation for the benefit of the poor people of Earnshaw who cannot afford to go to private clinics and hospitals.
CCF distributed snacks and freebies to little children who availed of the free medical checkup.
Thank you to Sir EJ for the cupcakes and refreshments for the kids.

Chummy Chum has once again spread cheer to poor children of Calamba, Laguna who were having their free medical and dental checkup courtesy of SM Foundation.

They said they missed the smell of our popcorns that even some of the volunteer doctors even requested for popcorn. 
The children were also excited and had big smiles on their faces because after their checkups they will finally get snacks and freebies courtesy of Chummy Chum.

Chummy Chum Graces Ms. Elyn’s BDay Outreach at PCMC Charity Ward

CCF Team headed to Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC) located at Agham Rd., Quezon City for the annual birthday outreach of Ms. Elyn. 
Fortunately, there's an available vehicle for us to use because normally, Sunday is a busy day due to deliveries of apparel for our boss’ business. 
Their success in business is the result of hard work and their generosity towards the needy, through Chummy Chum Foundation.
Just like the kind-hearted Ms. Elyn with her annual charity outreach. On this day, she and her friends prepared lots of food and gifts for the cancer-stricken kids of PCMC. We got to the venue and immediately set up our booth. During gift distribution, we saw poor little children who have big lumps and are asking for financial assistance so they could go to medical experts for their condition. 
We gave them our cellphone number and advised them to gather needed documents so we could present them to our boss for possible assistance. 
All the children in the Charity Ward were given grocery packs and food which were served in their hospital bed.

Teary-Eyed Mom Thanks Chummy Chum Foundation

A poor mother with a sick baby was crying… and they were tears of joy. 
Last April, she was feeling unwell as she went to different public hospitals in search of an incubator for her premature baby. Unfortunately, there were no vacant incubators in the said public hospitals. 
She did not give and continued to search until she found one at Our Lady of Lourdes, a private hospital. 
Though the safety of the mother and child has been secured, the bill was too expensive as both she and her husband don’t have jobs and were living with her parents. 
With the help of Chummy Chum Foundation and some of her relatives, her baby finally got out of the hospital after two months.

Chummy Chum Make Kids Happy at Open Day Center Despite CC Van Problem

It was an unfortunate day for Ms. Diane, the one who invited us to spend her birthday with the less fortunate children of Open Day Center of Virlaine Foundation as our Chummy Chum Van’s alternator broke down. But this did not deter us from doing our mission to spread cheer to children. Ms. Diane offered her vehicle as service so that we can transport our equipment to Quiapo, Manila where the venue is, while our truck was left in Ospital ng Maynila.
When we got to the venue, the children were all there waiting for us. We immediately get to work and set up our popcorn machine and suit up Chummy Chum. The kids enjoyed playing during the parlor games hosted by the clowns. After the games, Chummy Chum came out and danced for the children. Afterwards the children and Ms. Diane & friends had their pictures taken with Chummy Chum.

Chummy Chum w/ SM Foundation Visits Poor Families of Baryo Looc, in Batangas

CCF went to Baryo Looc, Nasugbu, Batangas to join SM Foundation’s Medical Mission for the poor families of that community. It took us 4 hours to get there as our CC van is not that fast but we eventually got there.
SMF yearly conducts medical and dental missions to far-flung barrios in partnership with their respective local leaders.

When we got there, most of the volunteers were already there and were already starting. The volunteer soldiers kindly requested for popcorns and in return, they provided us boxes of biscuits for the children who already had their checkups. The people of Baryo Looc were very thankful to SMF and CCF for spending time with people from faraway places like them.

Chummy Chum Joins Summer Camp Bulilit by QCGH Family Medicine Department

Located at Seminary Road in Quezon City, QCGH is not that far but it still took us 3 hours to get there because of the traffic. 
We got to the venue a bit late as the registration of kids has already started. We were immediately assisted by the hospital staff and we set up our popcorn machine so we could cook 150 popcorns right away. 
The program started by teaching kids of proper hygiene like how to wash their hands properly and how to make homemade oresol, and many more valuable tips. 
After the lecture, Chummy Chum came out to entertain the children during the break. They had several activities afterwards. 
As the program ends, the organizers distributed school supplies to the children, along with Chummy Chum freebies.
