Chummy Chum with Ms. Cecille and friends at House of Sarang for Gift Giving Activity

CCF Staff headed to House of Sarang in Silang Cavite for another charity activity. House of Sarang was originally located in Taguig and was transferred here about a year ago. Silang is an ideal place because the site looks like a ranch.

Our donors arrived late because they weren’t familiar with the place. People of Sarang met our group in an appointed place and led us to the venue.

We immediately set up our booth and prepared the freebies and popcorns. We always wanted to be early so that children will not get impatient from waiting.

The schedule that was given to CCF was 10am-12nn but Ms. Cecille’s group arrived at 11am. So we went ahead because we could only allot 2hrs for each activity. The organizers allowed Ms. Cecille and friends to stay for another 1hr.

After we left, we received a text message from Ms. Cecille profusely thanking us for our help and they saw how happy the kids of House of Sarang were.

We intentionally did not show the faces of the children in the photos for their own protection.

Chummy Chum meets 500 poor kids of Taytay in SM Free Medical Service

CCF Team was already on the road at 6am heading to Taytay Rizal for another tie-up project with SM Foundation. But before we get to the venue, we had to traverse a lot of ‘one way’ streets of Taytay, a rule being implemented by their good mayor. So when we arrived, a lot of kids were already waiting. We started to cook popcorns and they were 20 kids already lining up and we kept on making popcorns until all 500 kids were accommodated. 
Chummy Chum went out to dance for the children. Some kids and their mothers who have already been given popcorns kept coming back to avail of the Chummy Chum freebies as well as free medicines courtesy of SM Foundation.

Chummy Chum Joins SM Foundation for Medical-Dental Mission at Bicutan

CCF Team went to SM Bicutan for another Medical-Dental Mission event organized by SM Foundation. Poor families of Bicutan trooped to the SM Bicutan Event Center to avail of the free medicines and checkups. 
The management of SM Bicutan were stricter in implementing rules. One of our staff was not allowed to enter RDU because he was wearing short pants, but instead directed to patients’ entrance. But it’s ok, not everyone have the same character. 
What’s important is the ‘pakikisama’. 
We enjoy being with the SMF staff because they are kind, funny and accommodating but sometimes mataray but kind, just like Joy. That’s why we miss them when they're not around. They are also very kind to kids despite being very busy every event that we do not notice the time.
 We just can't help but smile when we see kids enjoying the freebies from CCF.

Chummy Chum with Loveline Cargo Charity Loca at Palanyag Landfill for Feeding Program

CCF team headed to Palanyag in Paranaque City, a former landfill site which was cleared by the local government but the scavengers in the area remained and settled there. 
The charity activity was held at Palanyag Covered Court and was organized by DSWD-Paranaque. 
A week prior to the event, we received a phone call from Loca Group inquiring as to where they could possibly hold an outreach program. We recommended Palanyag because we saw the needs of the poor kids in that community. 
There were 200 beneficiaries, but like other charity activities that we hold on resettlement areas, we encountered some problems with the mothers of the children who wanted their kids to be first on the list. There was a bit of a chaos because everyone wanted to get a stub for the said event. Luckily, the problem was resolved and the program went as planned. 
There was parlor games hosted by clowns, after which Chummy Chum came out and danced with the kids. A bit of chaos again ensued when the kids were asked to line up for the freebies and snacks. Overall, the event was a success. 
Big thanks to Loca Group and CCF for the food and gifts.

Every June, Ms. Elyn and friends organizes a gift-giving activity for poor children as their way of sharing their blessing to the less fortunate.

Chummy Chum’s Child Survival Maintenance Program (CSMP)

Child Survival Maintenance Program (CSMP) is a division of Chummy Chum Foundation wherein we donate incubators to Public Hospitals. 
This started in 2010 when most of CCF Boss’ friends donated cash and the only thing that our boss thought of was to purchase several incubators and donate them to government hospitals in service of poor mothers who cannot afford it. 
CCF were able to donate one incubator each to public hospitals in Manila and Quezon City such as PGH, Justice Gen. Hospital, Ospital ng Tondo, Gat Andres Bonifacio Hospital, Las Pinas Satellite Trauma Hospital, Quezon City General Hospital, V. Luna General Hospital, and Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Tala, Quezon City. 
This year, we are set to donate 22 units in provincial hospital such as Batangas Medical Center, Santa Rosa Community Hospital, Tagaytay Hospital, and also Jose Reyes Medical Center, Ospital ng Paranaque, Pasay City General Hospital, San Lorenzo Ruiz Women’s Hospital, Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center and Sta. Ana Hospital. Other requests are still being checked if they are indeed eligible. We also provide photo therapy light replacement as part of the lifetime service warranty of said incubators.

CCF Team had an early start as we left our HQ at 5:00am to go to Baliwag, Bulacan to take part in SM Foundation’s Medical Mission for the poor families of said community with the local DSWD helping us identify the poorest of the poor. The beneficiaries did not have a hard time entering the mall premises even before its opening hours as they already have an agreement with the mall management.
On this particular medical mission, they were able to invite children from SPED schools so they could also have a medical checkup. We saw how happy these special children were when after their checkup and getting free medicines, they also were able to receive gifts courtesy of Ms. JM & Mr. Alex plus Chummy Chum freebies.

CCF Team went to San Andres Bukid in Manila, particularly in Sto. Domingo Church for the Libreng Salo-salo organized by Aral Pinoy. The venue was quite small so the Parish Priest agreed that the program be held inside the church but games were held outside. 
Sir Tony of Aral Pinoy was very patient in going to poorest barangays to bring cheer to poor children with the help of kind-hearted individuals. 
During the event, our game prized became the attraction for children to join the games. They were all cooperative during the activity thanks to the help of our charity clowns.
The program started with a prayer then parlor games. Kids became more excited when they smelled the popcorn that we were cooking. After the games, Chummy Chum came out to dance for them.

Chummy Chum Joins Project Outreach’s Independence Day Celeb thru Feeding Program

With most people enjoying their long weekend break, CCF staff went to Tondo, Manila to for another worthy outreach activity as we join Project Outreach Group in their feeding program for less fortunate children of Tondo. 
We left early to get to the venue on time and when we got there, we were welcomed by members of the group who resides the place. They were very accommodating as they provided us with breakfast in a Tapsilog eatery. 
We were the first to set up a booth and when the children arrived they were delighted when they saw our booth. The games a bit organized because the emcees were inexperienced but the children had fun, just the same. That is why we recommend clowns that charge minimum fees for the sake of the less fortunate children. 
Chummy Chum gave away prizes for games such as hover disks that were donated especially for them. After the numerous games, Chummy Chum came out to entertain everyone. Afterwards, the tables were set up for 120 children and commenced with the feeding program. Children were also given Chummy Chum freebies courtesy of CCF.

Chummy Chum Bring smile for check-up kids of NCH-OPD

CCF headed to National Children’s Hospital (NCH) located at E. Rodriguez Ave., Quezon City to visit the cancer kid patients who are having their checkup at the Pedia OPD. It seems like it was a lucky day for most kids to have Chummy Chum visit them because most of them just brought enough money for medicine or lab fees, and no room to buy snacks. 
Parents of the sick children were very grateful to CCF for taking time to entertain the children and providing them with snacks and drinks. 
Each children received Chummy Chum freebies such as coloring set, toys and also balloons. They also get to enjoy freshly-cooked popcorn, which according to studies, is one of the most nutritious snack in the world especially when newly cooked. 
Big thanks to Katrina Esta for lootbags.
