Non-government organization Angat Buhay is letting Filipinos gift each other with its special Christmas bundle in the upcoming Holiday season.

The org, led by former Vice President Leni Robredo, said that the public can pre-order the “Pag-asa Christmas Bundle” packages until October 31, Tuesday by filling out a Google Form.

The packages come in three bundles. The first bundle comes with five crocheted items that can be used as decorations, a sticker set and a Christmas card.

The second bundle, meanwhile, comes with two crocheted items, a sticker set and a Christmas card.

The third bundle, on the other hand, comes with a sticker set and a Christmas card.

The stickers included in the package feature illustrations associated with Christmas season such as a church, a Christmas lantern, keso de bola, tansan tambourine, bibingka and puto bumbong.

The NGO said that each ordered bundle will support its programs and the communities the org is serving.

Filipinos also have the chance to support local artists.

The crocheted items were created by Bea Rosal and Debs Magpantay, while Sid Gonzales made the sticker sets.

“Let’s fill hearts with hope, one gift a time!” Angat Buhay said in its social media post.

The NGO said those who placed orders will receive an email from [email protected] starting November after the verification of their proof of transaction.

The Angat Buhay NGO was founded by Robredo, who wanted to continue the anti-poverty initiatives she had spearheaded during her term as vice president.

She said that she sought to continue the spirit of volunteerism that emerged from her 2022 presidential campaign.
