Last Saturday, it was one week before Christmas Eve
While I was struggling to complete my Christmas list
Our countrymen from Northern Mindanao were trying to save their properties
While were safely tucked inside our homes, they’re struggling for their lives
Everyday news only shows how bad the situation is with dead bodies everywhere
I remember I talked to a friend last time and I said why my heart seems to be like a rock
Tried and tested by time, hardened by the circumstances
But seeing children lost their lives while their bodies were held by the mourning parents
Surely, only a rock won’t cry.
In times like this, Filipinos always manifest a great spirit full of hope
That in every crisis we’re always ready to stand up from the fall
Even those who just have enough tried to help and for sure
A little help won’t hurt
A lot of people helped and were helping but more help is needed
With our prayers and little donation, no matter how small when put together
Will help sustain life and bring hope
This maybe one of the saddest Christmas but now is also the right time
To show the true spirit of what we’re celebrating.
For those who are willing to help, 7 eleven branches are accepting donations,
just approach the crew on the counter and they will give you your official receipt

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
