“It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving” – Mother Teresa.
A few days more to go, and it’s Christmas time. It is a time of joy for us all, especially for children deprived of love and care.
The 7XM, one of the reputable casino sites and the award-winning online gaming provider in the Philippines, held an incredible event by initiating a Donation Drive at Asociacion de Damas de Filipinas Inc. last November 16, 2022, with the theme “Spreading Smiles, Sharing Love” to bring happiness to children who need love and care.
The Asociacion de Damas de Filipinas Inc. is a Catholic orphanage in Paco, Manila. It enables children to experience the conditions of a loving family through quality care essential to help them grow and develop as God-fearing and holistically healthy children. They offer adoption services to people who share these values and who will be able to provide the children with families to support and help them grow as good individuals.
During the activity, 50 children, including 27 girls and 23 boys aged from two to thirteen, received advance Christmas presents from the 7XM team volunteers. The said children are classified as Children in Need of Special Care because their families, relatives, or guardians could not meet their basic security and nurturing requirements. They are either abandoned, neglected, orphaned, foundlings or dependent. These kids are clients who walk in or are referred by organisations like the DSWD, local government units, and non-governmental offices.
There were several pleasant surprises throughout the activity, such as the amazing dancing performance and the excellent poem recitation by the selected kids. The giving of gifts to the kids made the activity stand out. The gifts include diapers, milk, cookies, chocolate drinks, juices, and many more. After the said event, the children’s faces showed how happy and appreciative they were inside, which was quite evident from their expressions.
WHY ASOCIACION DE DAMAS DE FILIPINAS?
The 7XM team just want to contribute to the goals and objectives of the Association De Damas De Filipinas. This is so that children deprived of love and care can find happiness, which is one of 7XM’s core values.
The mission of Asociacion de Damas de Filipinas Inc. is to support children who are socially, emotionally, and financially disadvantaged, to uphold their rights and interests, and to provide a nurturing environment that enables them to experience the circumstances of a loving family through the required high-quality care to support their growth and development as God-fearing and holistically healthy children. The 7XM team has never questioned sharing this mission as a result. Every effort is taken to keep the environment and circumstances characteristic of a family.
WHY DONATION DRIVE?
The 7XM Team believes giving presents is a straightforward but powerful approach to teaching young kids about appreciation and gratitude. Children are taught to be grateful for all gifts, no matter how small it was. They gain an appreciation for the thoughtfulness of gifts. Research revealed that young kids ages 3 to 5 tend to appreciate material items more than experiences.
In conclusion, 7XM is a champion, not just in terms of casino games. They work to create an environment where children can experience what it’s like to live in a loving family and receive the high-quality care they require to support their growth and development as God-fearing and holistic beings, as well as to protect the rights and interests of children who are socially, emotionally, and financially disadvantaged. They are motivated in this way by their underlying ideals. This distinguishes 7XM from other gaming websites.
