World Vision continues its annual Christmas tradition with the Noche Buena campaign and as the child-focused organization moves forward, World Vision celebrity ambassadors and supporters help bring the Christmas spirit to Filipino children and families in need.

World Vision celebrity ambassadors OgieAlcasid, Enzo Pineda, and Gelli Victor together with World Vision loyal sponsor Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo encourage more people to join the Noche Buena campaign and be part of the advocacy.

“I am so glad to be part of World Vision’s annual Noche Buena campaign even amid the pandemic. I hope people will continue supporting this initiative as not everyone can even afford a Noche Buena meal to celebrate Christmas,” says OgieAlcasid

By giving a one-time donation of at least Php 1,000, sponsors and donors can help provide two families with a Noche Buena gift that contains ingredients for Filipinos’ holiday favorites, spaghetti and fruit salad.

“This year is very hard for everyone, but we can still make this season like no other. With a small amount of donation toWorld Vision’s Noche Buena campaign, we can all help spread the spirit of Christmas to the Filipino children and their families who are in need, especially in this season of giving,” says Enzo Pineda.

Meanwhile, Gelli Victor and her daughter Guiliana teamed up for “Cook for Good”, one of the initiatives under the Noche Buena campaign. The mother and daughter tandem created their very own version of Fruit Salad.

“World Vision’s Noche Buena campaign is one of my favorite initiatives of the organization because a simple Noche Buena pack means a lot for children as it symbolizes that they can have something special to look forward to every time it is Christmas,” says Gelli Victor.

Launched in 2005, the Noche Buena campaign has been one of the most awaited seasons of World Vision’s assisted children across the country, bringing joy to Filipino homes annually.

“The Year 2020 is a very different year for each one of us, but the spirit of Christmas never wanes. World Vision continues to bring joy, peace and hope to every Filipino especially in these trying times. We invite everyone to join our Noche Buena campaign and make this a Christmas like no other for Filipino children,” says Rommel Fuerte, World Vision National Director.
