My friends from Makati Shangri-La, Manila asked me to post this as they celebrate World Macaron Day on March 20th at SINFULLY with some fun Instagram challenges and activities, all benefiting the Embrace Project.
The hotel’s CSR initiative, a program where their employees volunteer their own time to spend with nine chosen children that are stricken with critical illness and help them with their homework, offer moral and emotional support to the little warriors and their equally brave families during chemo and radiation sessions, as well as throw parties and organize activities in their honor. This is a volunteerism program partnership with Ospital ng Makati and Cancer Warrior Foundation that sponsors nine children who have been diagnosed with Acute Lympoblastic Leukemia, Non Rhabdomyosarcoma, and Hodgkine Lymphoma. DO support this worthwhile activity. <3

I’m a mom, and anything children-related holds a soft spot in my heart. I can’t imagine what the moms of these cancer-stricken children are going through -more so the children who are so helpless but bravely facing the battle & fighting the disease! For at least for a day, let us think & give ode to the children as we join project #MacaronEmbrace. Please, let us help make this happen.
