What I love about Christmas is that everyone gets a chance to dress up their homes with beautiful Christmas decorations and bright lights to enhance the festive season. Sadly, there is not too many houses, streets and establishment I see these days with lovely Christmas decors. Most of the houses I used to pass by in the past with lovely Christmas lights no longer have it. Quezon City is a sad place to look at these season, there’s not a single Christmas light at commonwealth area. Is it because the QC mayor is saving up funds for he upcoming election?
Anyway, whatever the reason is, I make sure our house is filled with the Christmas spirit. I make sure to make time to put up the Christms tree and place as many Christmas lights as possible at home. In fact, my house is so Christmasy that I am inspired to join Meralco’s Maliwanag ang Pasko (MAP) Facebook app raffle where one gets a chance to win Php5,000 daily.
It’s so easy to join all I need to do is like Meralco’s Facebook page on www.facebook.com/meralco. Install the Maliwanag ang Pasko app by clicking the MAP tab. Upload a photo of our well lit home or a Liwanag Park I recently visited and fill-up the my personal details and hit submit. The raffle started December 1st and will end on December 22, 2012. I just saw the last raffle and there were two winners who won Php5,000.00 each.
If you don’t know yet Meralco’s Maliwanag ang Pasko is One Meralco Foundation CSR program now in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT) and with various local government in the country. For 2012, MAP wants to extend its electrification assistance to Buenavista in Bohol and Dinagat Islands in Mindanao.
In regards with this project, Christmas light lighting party activities was held by Meralco together with DOT at Liwanag Parks of partner LGU’s. These partner LGU’s were given starter kits consisting of MAP parols and 500 boxes of Christmas lights to start lighting up their communities. For this , an award for the Best Liwanag Park will be awarded to the most beautifully-lit community. DOT sponsored cash prices for this contest (Php100,000 for 3rd place, Php150,000 for 2nd place and Php300,000 for the Grand Prize winner) so as to boost the Philippines tag line of : Christmas Is More Fun In The Philippines!
I believe this is a worthy cause we should all support. So if encourage everyone to light up your homes, take your camera , take a shot of your beautifully lit homes and upload it at the Meralco Facebook page. Who knows you could with an extra Php5,000 for your Christmas shopping.
Stay gorgeous everyone!
