Hi friends! Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so we are now preparing for our annual candy-giving activity to promote the beautiful virtue of Chastity. (Now on its 5th year! Yay!!) Our theme this year is #WeChooseRealLove. As we all know, contraception advocates also give away free condoms on Valentine’s Day every year to promote only sex, but not love. On the contrary, what we young people want to promote is Real Love– the kind that is patient, kind, gentle, and everything else written about it in 1 Corinthians 13!
We, Filipinos for Life (F4L), together with our partner Prolife Philippines, and with the groups/individuals who wish to join us, will once again distribute candies with printed messages about keeping love real and pure.
If you wish to join us, here are the ways you could participate in this fun and worthwhile activity:
1. Organize your own #WeChooseRealLove Candy-Giving Activity
Organize your own #WeChooseRealLove candy-giving activity in your parish, community or school. (Feb 14 is a Sunday so it would be great to distribute these packets of candies outside your church after the Mass.)
2. Donate Cash or Candies
We accept both cash donations and candy donations.
For candy donations, you may drop them off or send them to the ff. locations:
- Green Heights Agricultural Corporation, 4277 Emilia St., Palanan, Makati City
