The kids were welcomed with a sumptuous buffet of their favorite snacks and treats in Sambo Kojin. After lunch, they were invited to Toy Kingdom, the kids were initially asked for a Christmas wishlist which Toy Kingdom granted, and each child left with an armful of gifts. The celebration continued at the SM ice-skating rink. The kids, who had never ice-skated before, had a blast gliding around the rink, with big smiles and lots of laughter.

It was a day of joy and hope for these kids with cancer, and the event organizers, volunteers, and partners that helped make it happen all deserve a huge round of applause. Thanks to the generosity and kindness of sponsors and event partners Mr. Hans Sy of SM, Mr. Martin Sy, SM Cares, SM Megamall, Toy Kingdom, and SM Skating rink these children and their families had a special day that will never be forgotten.
