Last Sunday, November 10, SM City Santa Rosa and with the presence of Santa Rosa, Laguna City Mayor Arlene B. Arcillas, launched A Magical Christmas with the theme Small World Big Christmas dedicated to the Philippine Chlidren’s Medical Center patients and the affected families of Typhoon Yolanda that recently devastated Tacloban City and the rest of Visayas provinces.

The Magical Christmas launch highlighted the spirit of Christmas gift-giving and spreading love for the children suffering from cancer diseases and the though of prayers for the people affected by Yolanda that is said to be the strongest typhoon that hit the world in history.

Also, in the wake of damages brought about by the recent 7.2 earthquake and the super-typhoon Yolanda, SM Group announces its plan to allocate Php 100M as calamity fund for areas devastated by the earthquake and the typhoon, particularly in, Tacloban, Ormoc , Samar, Bohol, Cebu, Iloilo Capiz, and Bicol.

The fund will focus on five different types of assistance: rebuilding homes, community centers, schools, and churches, and providing immediate relief through food and supplies. In addition to these efforts, “Operation Tulong Express” will be open for the donation of relief goods in SM malls, and an account in both BDO and Chinabank will be open to accept cash donations.

Christmas is just around the corner and we know that this season will not be a joyous moment for our brothers and sisters emotionally, physically, and financially suffering at the moment brought about these tragedies but we look forward that hope and ray of light will find its way to their hearts and homes.

May the Magical Christmas launch be an occasion not just to remember the feast of Christmas but also time to reflect and remember our brothers and sisters in need.

As the lyrics goes rang in our head, “Pray for the other ones. At Christmas time, it’s hard but when you’re having fun...” from the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas” by Band Aid, our heart is filled with sadness as we see all the graphic photos and videos brought about by the devastation in Tacloban.

Here’s the complete lyrics of the song and as we all sing (or hum) with it, let us reflect the plight of our fellow countrymen.

It’s Christmas time
There’s no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade

And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time, it’s hard
But when you’re having fun

There’s a world outside your window
And it’s a world of dreaded fear
Where the only water flowing
Is a bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
We’ll, tonight, thank God, it’s them
Instead of you

And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Here’s to you
Raise your glass for everyone
Here’s to them
Underneath that burning sun
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time and…

Do They Know It’s Christmas is a song written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in 1984 to raise money for relief of the 1983–1985 famine in Ethiopia.
