The Christmas party for Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) sponsored children and their siblings always includes food. Most of the children prefer to receive food over any gifts they might receive at Christmas. At the annual FCM Christmas party, a child will hear a Bible story, sing some fun songs, and receive at least one gift. In most cases, for these children, this gift is the only thing they receive for Christmas.
One thing that is not easy for someone, who is not from the Philippines, to understand is that if a child in does not pay the “Christmas party fee” at their public school, then the child is not allowed to attend the class party. When necessary, FCM pays the fees for their sponsored children. Without your donations, it would not be possible for these children to join their class in a Christmas party.
The children that FCM sponsors come from very poor homes. A Christmas gift for a child in the Philippines does not have to cost a lot, and it would make that child very, very happy. A simple toy, a new t-shirt, or an ice cream cone will put a smile on a child’s face. Other popular gifts are mosquito nets, bath towels, light blankets and umbrellas. Food is always a special gift, because the children rarely have enough food to eat, and it is not unusual for them to go all day without food.
FCM Partners, Sponsors and Friends have given so generously in past years, so that the Filipino children and their families are blessed at Christmas. Your donation, large or small, will make Christmas special for them.
You can send your donation online to the Christmas for Children fund via the FCM website. Donations for Christmas need to be received before Thanksgiving, so that we can send the money the first week of December to the pastors who care for the children. Thank you!!!!
