See the World in Children's Eyes This Christmas


Celebrate the season of giving with "See the World", a joint Christmas initiative of AirAsia and World Vision, is an awareness and fundraising effort for the benefit of Filipino children.
“See the World” aims to raise at least one million pesos to provide sponsorship program for many children as direct recipients across the country.  For every AirAsia seats booked or sold in the Philippines from 1 to 31 December 2017, five pesos will be automatically donated to World Vision’s child sponsorship program.
AirAsia Regional Chief Operating Officer Pete Chareonwongsak said, “The collaboration between AirAsia and World Vision represents another step forward in our commitment to the philosophy that no corporation can live apart from the community it serves. As a truly Filipino airline, we will always extend a helping hand to the communities we serve.”
“AirAsia as a global brand is honored to partner with an international relief, development and advocacy organization as we both share the same commitment and passion in helping communities especially children see the wonders of the world through sponsorship programs in education.”
World Vision Philippines National Director Rommel Fuerte, meanwhile, said, “As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of World Vision here in the Philippines, we are very thankful to have this milestone partnership with AirAsia Philippines. With this significant initiative, we can ensure that every peso that will be donated to World Vision will help a lot of underprivileged Filipino children attain their dreams.”
“Christmas in the Philippines is very much celebrated and being involved in this exciting project is truly a gift that enables us to reach out and help as many children as we can.”
Aside from fundraising efforts, “See the World” will feature inspiring stories of children from impoverished communities around the country whose lives have changed and caused other children and communities to aspire for better living conditions.
“See the World” was officially launched November 18 at Hotel H2O with World Vision Philippines ambassadors led by Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista, singer and rapper Quest and radio DJ and host Gelli Victor.
World Vision ambassador Christian Bautista said, “Working with World Vision in the Philippines is really a joy for me. Yes, I am able to touch the lives of these children when we reach out to them. But they don’t know how their smiles are able to change me as a person. And with the wonderful ‘See the World’ collaboration of AirAsia and World Vision, each one can have that chance to touch each other's hearts and celebrate Christmas in a different way.”   
For his part, Quest, also an ambassador for World Vision said, “I don’t feel any burden being a child sponsor. In fact, it makes me feel wonderful being able to help. And through this ‘See the World’ campaign of AirAsia and World Vision in the Philippines, it will be easier for anyone to help.”

Colors of Weaving and A Hidden Christmas Star Highlight CCP Christmas Light Decor

Young, talented architects Rochelle Ong and Louie Suico of WTA Architecture & Design Studio wins CCP’s HOLIDAY LIGHT INSTALLATION COMPETITION 2017 with their simplified Christmas tree design structure that reveals levels of symbolisms of a what Christmas in the Philippines is all about.


This year’s focus of the annual competition between The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and OMNI (Yatai International Corporation) is on Philippine lantern-making technology.


The winning proposal, entitled “Habi ng Pagkakaisa: Weaving the Multi-Cultural Filipino Together”  is inspired by the geometrical patterns of various weaving traditions in the Philippines.  It was particularly inspired  by the Kalinga in Luzon, the Bagtason of the Visayas, and the Bagobo, the Mandaya, and T’Boli of Mindanao. Their proposed design “aims to empower the weaving industry of our nation, which is deeply rooted in our rich culture as it is the same for all ASEAN countries.”


The panel of jurors, which was made confidential until the deliberations on September 20, was composed of the ASEAN-National Organizing Council Consultant Nestor Jardin, CCP Associate Artistic Director Ariel Yonzon, Henry Yang of Yatai International Corporation, and artist Jose Tence Ruiz. Proposals were evaluated based on originality and innovativeness, feasibility of the implementation, ties to the theme and to both the CCP and Omni’s institutional mandates, appropriateness to the surroundings and eco-friendliness.


“Habi ng Pagkakaisa” will be unveiled on 3 November 2017, Friday, 6pm at the CCP Liwasang Asean Park, along with the launch of the regularly anticipated multi-faceted and custom-designed lanterns on display at the fa├žade of the CCP Main Theater Building.

A collaboration between the CCP and the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, the lanterns continue to be a beautiful showcase of the craftsmanship and ingenuity innate in the traditional Philippine Christmas. The two projects combined express the CCP’s mandate of showcasing artistic excellence through Filipino creativity, as well as the institution’s ongoing partnerships with like-minded corporations and other government institutions.
