Chum visited the DSWD Social Development Center in Pasay. The center is a temporary shelter for abused and neglected street children.
The aim of the charity event is to let these children feel that they are loved and cared for. The children-party-like charity event helps the children move forward from their emotional upheavals. Chummy Chum wants them to be happy and just live as children at that very moment, with high hopes that it will leave a special mark on the mind and heart of each child that life is certainly a blessing, there are so many kind-hearted and loving people out there, and that the world is a beautiful place to live in.
As the Chummy Chum truck arrives, the children and the staff at the center were curiously happy. The team member, one by one came out of the truck carrying boxes full of surprises for the kids.
Aldrin, who is every child’s tatay (father) set up the cotton candy and popcorn machine getting ready to cook the mouthwatering sweet treats. Edmund after parking the truck joined Joel in setting up the table with food, gifts, freebies, and toys for the children. Rowena started to chat with the children while the Chummy Chum jingle medley was afloat in the air. Tatay started to call out for the popcorn and cotton candy. The children were so happy while digging into the Chummy yummy treats.
After a little while, Chummy Chum (the mascot) came out, with his hips swaying gently left and right, and slow dancing to the tune of the Chummy Chum songs. The dance moves became faster inviting the children to dance with him, and so it was.
At the end of the program, Rowena and the team distributed the food, toys, gifts, and freebies that were prepared all for the children. Everyone was very happy, especially the children.
Thank you very much Chummy Chum for the untiring service, love, and care for the less fortunate children. Thank you too to our voluntary partner-donors: Mam Anonymous R for food, loot bags, and school supplies; Mam Rona for pretty paper bags, and SM Store Sucat for the toys.
We intended not to publicly expose the children’s faces for their protection.
