“If there was a holiday that deserves to be commercialized, it’s Halloween. We haven’t taken it away from kids. We’ve just expanded it so that the kid in adults can enjoy it, too.”

We had a Happy Halloween Party at Helping Land!

Before lining up outside our feeding courtyard, kids were already busy preparing themselves as they wore their best scary costumes and face paints on October 31st.

For this day’s special event in the Helping Land, Tondo, Manila courtyard, we had special guests all the way from South Korea!

The guests are students of Seoul Foreign School. Not only did they sponsor this day’s feeding program, they also shared their time with the kids.

After a brief orientation for all the volunteers, the kids entered the courtyard ready for us to fill their tummies first.

We also had an extra special Brain Booster this day. We taught the kids how to create colorful paper flowers that they can give to their departed loved ones for All Souls Day on November 1.

Volunteers assisted the kids in their art projects. In just a few moments, the whole courtyard became an Art Center and lovely paper flowers filled the whole area.
