Christmas Meal Appeal 2014 – Buy a ‘Bucket of Love’

As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, it means it’s time for our Christmas Meal Appeal! Our Christmas wish is that none of the families we work with in Cebu go hungry over Christmas. However, to make this wish come true, we need your help.

Our Meal Appeal, otherwise known as ‘Buckets of Love’, aims to provide a large family with enough food for 5 days over Christmas. The buckets contain all the ingredients needed to cook Filipino Christmas favourites like spaghetti, fruit salad and spam! They also contain tinned fish, rice, toiletries and other essentials.

The buckets are handed out to parents on the morning of Christmas eve. It is a frantic days work, but a lot of fun! It’s wonderful to see someone walking home clutching their bucket, with a beaming smile on their face. There is a lightness in their step as they know that, for a few days at least, they don’t need to worry about how they’re going to feed their families. They can celebrate Christmas along with everyone else and know their children will not go hungry on Christmas day. They too can share in the joy of Christmas, without bearing the burden of poverty.

This year, we hope to raise enough money to provide 500 buckets to families living in local slum areas. To fulfil this goal, we need £4,500! With your help and generosity, we can feed thousands of people over the holiday and help ease the pressure for those living in poverty. You can buy a whole bucket for £9; for only £9 you can totally transform the Christmas of an entire family in the Philippines. Can you join with us this year, and help us make Christmas a cause for celebration for thousands of individuals in the Philippines?
