Christmas is a festive celebration here in the Philippines. We celebrate it for months, the decorations are all over since September. We can hear Christmas carols even before Halloween. Indeed, as a Catholic Country this is a special season. But do we all know what this celebration really means? I wish you answered the question with a YES.
I would like to share with you about Christian Life Movement (CLM) campaign every December. But first you might want to ask “What is Christian Life Movement?”. CLM is an ecclesial movement approved by His Holiness St. John Paul II in 1994, which is present around the world.
So CLM has a campaign called Christmas is Jesus (CIJ). This campaign aims to remind us that the real meaning of Christmas is Jesus.
Activities on Christmas is Jesus Campaign:
- Christmas Parties for Kids We held Christmas Parties for Kids all over the Philippines every weekend. We give gifts to kids and teach them the real meaning of Christmas. This year our target to hold parties for 10,000 kids.
- Boxes of Love – There boxes are Noche Buena packages for less-privileged families.
- Carols in the Hospital – Visiting and singing Christmas songs for sick kids in the hospital.
How can you help?
- Donate your used clothes
We all have unused clothes and donating those pieces can help our campaign to make some cash. Most of the clothes donated are posted in our Online Bazaar Page.
- Shop in CLM Online Bazaar Page
We can find a lot of good things from preloved. I myself don’t mind buying them online. Also, it will be for a good cause. So if you like to shop, you might want to visit our Online Bazaar Page.

Many families in the Philippines do not own a Bible. Help these families get a copy of their own through monetary donation. We are giving bible to these families this year. Kindly check the ways specified for ways of donation.
