AirAsia Philippines brings Star of Hope project to Asilo de San Vicente de Paul

AirAsia Philippines, committed to its core value of "For Everyone", has rolled out its alwaysREDy: Magbigay Saya Ngayong Pasko campaign to ensure nobody is left behind this Christmas.  Together with its partners McDonald’s Philippines, Ms. Universe Philippines Charity 2021 Victoria Vincent Velsaquez and award-winning actor Carlo Aquino, the world's best low-cost airline delivered the “Star of Hope” to Asilo de San Vicente de Paul. 


With just 3 days before Christmas, AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla and CFO Ray Berja led the Allstars and McDonald’s Philippines in the gift-giving activity that brought happiness and benefited more than 100 orphaned children, youth, family and individuals in crisis under the care of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul. 

The donations were collected following the alwaysREDy Magbigay Saya Ngayong Pasko internal drive by AirAsia with its employees and corporate social responsibility partners.


The distribution of the Star of Hope Christmas lantern is an annual tradition of the Allstars to help promote the spirit of positivity and hope.  It was launched when AirAsia Philippines mounted a mercy flight and relief operations to the typhoon ravaged province of Catanduanes in December 2020.


AirAsia Philippines Spokesperson Steve Dailisan said, “We have lots of good things to be thankful for this year.  Despite the ongoing global pandemic, we are happy that slowly but surely, we are seeing  light amid the turbulent skies.  We are thankful that Asilo de San Vicente de Paul welcomed us to their home to share our blessings with them.  We hope that despite all the things that are happening, this simple celebration has spurred hope and joy among our partners and those less fortunate.”


Asilo de San Vicente de Paul Administrative Services Head Sister Bernadita Epcta said, “We are happy that though we are in the midst of the pandemic, organizations such as AirAsia Philippines and McDonald’s have found a way to celebrate and have fun with our Asilo family with high consideration to health and safety.  We will remain positive and resilient especially now that we have them included in our extended family.”


The hybrid gift-giving event was also highlighted by performances from Carlo Aquino and AirAsia Allstars. All attendees are fully vaccinated and have undergone antigen testing prior the event.
