Boracay, Philippines– aroundtheworldin80jobs.com owner and blogger Turner Barr has come to the Philippines for a very special mission: Operation Save Santa. Together with Oliver Köllner of Boracay PubCrawl Inc., a fund raising campaign is launched to gather donations from all over the globe and give presents to kids who have been affected by the Typhoon Yolanda.
 
 
Operation Saving Santa : A Filipino Christmas Story 
 
Christmas is a very special season for all Filipinos. But due to the recent typhoon, it will be harder this time for them to feel the spirit of the celebration. Most families, aside from losing loved ones, also lost most of their possessions. Now, their focus is how to rebuild and to restart. That’s why, it will be difficult for Santa this year to deliver joy and hope to Filipino children as their families have other important priorities. With this, Barr and Boracay PubCrawl Inc. is encouraging you to be their next Santa! With your donation, you can help families make this Christmas as special as it would have been. The Operation Saving Santa fund drive is intended to distribute toys to Filipino kids for them to celebrate this season with a more positive outlook. 
 
 
Why do Toy Drive? 
 
Filipinos celebrate Christmas with kids in their minds. This is the time for kids to enjoy the end of they year, share and experience blessings from their families, relatives and friends. With this is mind, a toy drive is a perfect way to bring back those laughters and smiles to the survivors of the typhoon. While reconstruction of homes, and other relief missions are just as important, the focus of the Operation Saving Santa campaign is to lift up the spirit of the children affected by the typhoon and make a difference to their lives. 
 
It could be a simple slipper, or a teddy bear, or a brand new hula hoops. But these things can help a child still recovering from the tragic aftermath of the typhoon appreciate the more positive side of it. With a scarce resource, it is difficult for parents to provide gifts to their child. And that is where you, our Santa, can fill the spot. 
 
 
Why should I be the next Santa? 
 
We want you to experience how is it to be a Santa. That’s why, our Operation Saving Santa toy drive will be documented via video from the start to finish for you to see everything that happens to make this operation successful. This will be as interactive as possible so that you can see for yourself the effects of your help. 
 
Aside from the kids, the Operation Saving Santa toy drive will also help stimulate the local economy by purchasing products locally available. In turn, this is another source of income to those whose businesses were affected by the typhoon. 
 
Much of the focus of most relief operations is in the Eastern Visayas region but there are many villages in Western Visayas that need help. To ensure that this campaign will make the biggest impact, we will focus our resources to the families living in the remote areas. 
 
Lastly, the Operation Saving Santa campaign, with your help, can push the tourism industry to stand up again. Many tourists already cancelled their trips to different areas in Western Visayas thus affecting the livelihood of the locals. By showcasing, through our videos, the beauty of these places, we aim to help the tourism industry cope with the effects of the recent disaster. 
 
Excited to be the a Santa this Christmas and be a part of our Filipino Christmas Story? Good!
