Chummy Chum with Ms. Emmaruth and Family at National Children’s Hospital

After the morning event, CCF team went straight to National Children Hospital in the afternoon, upon the request of Ms. Emmaruth as they share their blessings to the cancer patients. 

CCF Team was the first to arrive and we immediately set up our booth, cook popcorns and organize the distribution of stubs to the parents of the patients so that when the donors arrive, everything is ready. 

Ms. Emmaruth and family brought along many food for the children. 

This is the 2nd year that we have worked with them in giving happiness and sharing the blessings with the children.



Chummy Chum at GMA Kapuso Foundation’s ‘Gift for A Cause’ Project


CCF team started the day by heading to Ever Gotesco Commonwealth Atrium in Quezon City for GMA Kapuso Foundation’s event. 
In our 4-years of partnership with them along with Mr. & Mrs. Sison, we saw the different faces of children afflicted with cancer. 
It is always heartbreaking to see them, and see the pain behind their sweet smiles. That is why in every invitation we receive for cancer –afflicted children, we make it a point to prepare lots of gifts for them. 
For this day we are sure that the children of Cancer Champion 2014 will be very happy with the numerous gifts from us and Mr. & Mrs. Sison such as toiletries, school supplies, lootbags, fruits, toys, glitter balls, as well as breakfast and lunch of the children and parents. 
Because of the generosity of the Sison couple, even the artists present were very thankful to CCF.

Chummy Chum’s Surprise Visit to SPECS Foundation's Sponsored Community

CCF graced the request of SPECS Foundation Community and went to one of their community beneficiaries located in a landfill in Paranaque City. 
This is our first time to go to the said place. The place is similar to Smokey Mountain and Baseco in Tondo, Manila wherein the families’ primary living is to scavenging. 
The organizers initially told us to prepare popcorns and freebies for 100 kids but when we got there, we were welcomed by 300 children including those that are bare-footed and unkempt. 
Good thing CCF was prepared for this kind of situation and brought just enough supply of popcorns and freebies to accommodate all the children. We prepared 350 popcorns and gave away coloring books to the little kids and we are happy to see the beautiful smiles on their faces. 
We promised them that we will come back and bring with us generous donors that will give them a complete party.

CCF team went to Project 4 in Quezon City upon the request of Kaisang-Buhay Foundation (KBF) as they celebrate ‘Children’s Month’. 
KBF works under DSWD and helps poor children of Project 4 especially from Epheta Foundation for the Blind. These are children of our visually-impaired brothers and sisters housed at the Center. They have a day care center and they are celebrating Children’s Month. 
This year’s theme encouraged the children to wear national costumes of different countries. 
CCF arrived at the venue halfway through the program that’s why we rushed to set up our booth and cook 300 bags of popcorn for the children.

Chummy Chum Graces Ms. Emelyn’s Birthday at Makati Fundamental Baptist Church

After  the Dasmarinas event, CCF headed straight to Tejeros, Makati in the afternoon, to be at Ms. Emelyn’s Birthday Celebration. 

The event was held at Makati Fundamental Baptist Church wherein Ms. Emelyn and family treated the poor children from their community. 

This is the first time that we get to work with Ms. Evelyn and she is very happy to share her blessings to the poorest of the poor just like Chummy Chum Foundation.



Chummy Chum with SMF for SM Dasmarinas Medical Mission

CCF Team started the day by going to SM Dasmarinas for another Medical Mission with SM Foundation. 
The activity was held at the mall’s parking lot. The organizers were so accommodating and kind to us that is why we love working with them and providing freebies for the children who avail their free medical services. 
It is but heartening to know that SMF prioritize underprivileged kids that cannot afford to  buy medicines and rely solely on the free medicines that the Foundation gives them.

Chummy Chum Visits OSTON with 143 Group and I-Juander Staff

CCF received a call from I-Juander staff, they wanted to produce a story in a rush for an episode of their program. They wanted to meet the founder of CCF but they are running out of time. They decided to just film CCF in one of our events and create a story segment out of it. 
So we arranged a visit to Ospital ng Tondo (OSTON) and Dr. Cando, the Hospital Director readily agreed for the rush interview and also allowed I-Juander to film their segment in the hospital. With them is 143 Group boy band. 
They started filming us as we set up the booth and prepare the popcorns. Chummy Chum came out and entertain the children at the OPD, then we distributed freebies. 
After the gift-giving, we were interviewed by the segment host. We were asked as to why we do what we do and what are the benefits we gain from it. We answered that we are happy serving the less fortunate by doing charity work. They also asked why our boss is doing this, and we answered that this is his way of giving back for all the blessings that he and his family received. 
The segment will be aired on Nov. 12, 8pm at Channel 11. The show wanted the viewers to follow CCF’s lead in giving happiness and sharing our blessings especially to less fortunate children whole year round.

Chummy Chum provides 550 popcorns for Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Month

CCF Team had an early start as we head to Calauan, Laguna to join Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Month. In almost four (4) years of partnership with Bantay Bata 163, they have always requested CCF to join them during their events for children. 
Most of these kids reside beside the railroad tracks which endanger their lives that’s why they were relocated here in “Bayan ni Juan” in Calauan to give them a nice shelter and a clean environment. What’s sad is that there are still numerous vacant houses in the site because some those who were relocated here went back to Manila. 
This day, Chummy Chum made the children who are beneficiaries of Bantay Bata 163 under ABS-CBN Foundation.

Chummy Chum with SM Foundation bring smiles to kids of Brgy Bulihan


CCF Staff started their day very early as they cruised South Luzon Express Way and took the Sta Rosa Exit to join SM Foundation on their Medical Mission at Barangay Bulihan in Nasugbu, Batangas. We just encountered a little setback when our van experienced a problem while we were in Brgy Dapdap. We caused a little traffic due to the unfortunate event. Thankfully, one barangay official helped us out and let us pass through when he learned that we were with SMF. When we got to the site, only a few kids were there but when we started setting up our booth, cooking popcorns and preparing the freebies, more kids started to arrive and had their medical checkup.

Chummy Chum Brings Joy to Rescue Kids at CFC’s Children Ministry “Kids’ Camp”

CCF headed to Tikling, Taytay, Rizal through the invitation of Couples’ for Christ. The CFC Children’s Ministry held a 3-day “Kids’ Camp” at Methodist Prayer Garden with ‘batang hamog’ or children who beg in the streets that were rescued in Pasig, Quezon City and Manila by DSWD Pasig. 
During the Kids Camp, they taught the children good manners and right conduct as well as about God. The CFC Children’s Ministry prepared for this 3-day immersion by providing the children with clothes, food and bath essentials during their 3-day stay. During the first day, they held an acquaintance party for the children and invited Chummy Chum for the event. The children were delighted to receive freebies from CCF and generous sponsors. Big thanks to Ms. Karen Mendoza for the lootbags.

Chummy Chum Visits Sta. Ana Hospital during Children’s Month

CCF received a call from a Pediatrician of Sta. Ana Hospital requesting us to celebrate Children’s Month with them on October 16, Thursday. We told them that our van is covered with the coding system for that day, so the re-scheduled the event to Oct. 13, Tuesday. Since the registration in the OPD in public hospitals starts very early, we left our place at 6:00AM and we arrived at Sta. Ana Hospital at 8:00AM, just in time for the pedia checkup. We saw a lot of sick children coming from very poor families who are just relying on the free medical service that public hospitals provide. The children were very happy to see Chummy Chum and were more thankful when they received snacks and loot bags. Big thanks to Calvary Foursquare Church of Sta. Mesa for the loot bags.

Chummy Chum Goes to Angono for SM Foundation’s Medical Mission

CCF met the poor families of Angono Rizal who participated in SM Foundation’s Medical Mission. The event was held in Angono Municipal Hall.

We arrived at the venue after going through the rough road via C6. When we got there, the registration is ongoing. Everything went smoothly and was very organized, even when CCF distributed freebies to children. 

The only setback we encountered were people, particularly municipal volunteers, who were complaining that they too were already hungry and they were asking us for popcorns. We patiently explained to them that said popcorns are intended for children only. Despite their insistence, we stood our ground and kindly told them that we cannot give in to their wishes. Thankfully, they finally understood. Even SMF did not meddle with the situation and just let us be because they know our policy, that we are doing everything just for the kids. 

Big thanks to Calvary Square Sta. Mesa for the loot bags.
