I received a note yesterday from a fellow blogger from General Santos City, Mary Michelle Carillo who maintains a blog called Ana Filibini.
Miss Carillo is based in Kuwait but even though she is far away from her hometown, she has managed to conduct a Christmas Day FOOD CARAVAN program last year, sort of like a feeding program for GenSan’s street children.

This laudable project which she calls “Pay if forward, GenSan” has fed 100 streetkids the first time and for this year, they are targetting 200.
So if you have spare money to give away, why not donate to her group, Proud Art Entertainment? Or better still, donate in kind – pasta, juice in tetra packs, rice, vegetables, to name just a few.
You can also join them during the Food Caravan on December 25, 2008 after the 5:00pm Christmas Day mass and bask in the glow of delighted faces of the children.
For more details, try contacting them through Joy at +639095089279 and Mackay at +639282882878. You may also email them at proudart(dot)entertainment(at)gmail(dot)com.

As for Bariles, he is 100% for this and is looking forward to spread joy and cheers to these kids on Christmas Day.
How about you, reader? Are you joining us to celebrate Christ’s birthday in a more meaningful way with these underprivileged kids, who are closest to His heart?
