It’s the season of giving once again and one way we can express our appreciation and gratitude for our family and loved ones is through heartfelt gifts. Whether bought from a store or through creating handmade presents, these can show just how much people mean to us.
With Christmas as Filipinos’ most anticipated occasion each year, the parol shines as a beacon of joy and hope each year. With its colorful design and light that brightens up the night, it’s not just a piece of holiday décor, but a way of connecting people throughout the country.
This 2020, the Museo Pambata, an interactive museum for children, has launched its Star of Hope project, a crafting project for a cause. For P1,000, anyone can purchase a do-it-yourself parol-making kit. Those who buy the kit can decorate the parol any way they like—adding their choice of embellishments and colors.
For every kit bought, one among Museo Pambata’s 500 adopted kids will receive a parol kit as well, along with a Noche Buena basket. These children come from different communities in Manila.
While Museo Pambata has been closed since March because of the global health crisis, it continues to come up with programs and activities that spread Christmas cheer. If you’d like to extend a helping hand to Museo Pambata’s children in need, visit their Facebook page and their Instagram account.
