Giving Back The Smile to Street Children





A Virlanie Christmas: Everybody deserves a Family

We know, you’re with us in believing that Every child deserves a family, so we're extending A Virlanie Christmas campaign until the end of January!

We want to give you every opportunity to contribute in granting street children’s ultimate wish--to be with a family they can call their own. With your help, we can make a lasting difference in their lives. TOGETHER, we can make their wish come true. We have only TWO WEEKS LEFT to make this happen.

Please spread the word to your friends and colleagues, and perhaps we can make this fundraiser one of our largest yet!"


Paula, 10, a former street child, lost contact with her mother since four years. “Every year, I wish for one thing: my Nanay. I wish I could be with her for Christmas,” she says. She has been with the Foundation for eight years and while she is thankful to have her Mama Lak and Papa Ricky (Virlanie Tanglaw's house parents), she still wants to see her real mom.

There’s no time like a Virlanie Christmas. Every December, the children are able to receive toys, clothing and gifts. While these make them smile, they wish for something that will touch their lives more deeply: a family they can call their own.

There is no more sustainable and generous gift for a child than to place him/her in a family. This is built on our mutual belief that the best place for children to grow up is still within a family. You can give a LONG TERM SOLUTION to their

basic human need: a sense of belonging and love.

Together we can make their wish come true.

With your gifts to A Virlanie Christmas, we were able to raise PHP 1.4 Million! Paula’s Christmas this year will be different. While we’re finding ways to reunite her with her family, we’re also making sure that she gets all the essential support she needs. Your generosity is what allows us to do that.  

Thank you!
