For the third time around, let’s make a brave bunch of kids extra happy this Christmas!

For two years, we’ve given the Hematology and Oncology patients of the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC) extra smiles by presenting them with gifts containing art materials and books, and by distributing balloons for Christmas. We were also able to put up a face-painting booth especially for these brave bunch of kids during the Christmas Party hosted by Project: Brave Kids. All of these were made possible by the combined efforts of many people.

This year, we still hope to give away art materials (drawing books, crayons, pencils, etc.) so that these children will have a way of taking their minds off of the life-threatening illnesses that inflict them such as Leukemia, Thalassemia, and Tumor.

We also wish to add a treatment kit to the now traditional gifts we give them. The treatment kit will include a bag, bottle of alcohol, pack of cotton balls, plaster, gauze, etc.—all of which will be useful in their regular visits in the hospital, the place that has become their second home.

With your help, we can once again come up with 150 gifts (art materials and treatment kit) which we can distribute during the Christmas week.

If you wish to share cash or anything in kind, you can contact us at

Merry Christmas!
