THE event area of Abreeza Ayala mall was speckled with twisted balloons, clowns, and kids who were all excited to perform and watch their friends groove on stage as the Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines, Inc. celebrated the Christmas season as well as their 15th Anniversary last December 29.
Mr. Antonio Brias and his wife Maricris Floirendo-Brias of Davao were the moving forces behind the Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines, Inc. in Mindanao – a support group whose advocacy is on the well-being of the children with Down Syndrome, a challenge that never defined these kids but rather made them even more loved by the people around them.
They shared the spirit of kindness and exuberance of Christmas to kids with a lot of dancing and stage performances. There were those who performed the Creed of the Babies with Down Syndrome through a doxology that brought out too much emotion from the audience. Some of the kids danced the hula, complete with their grass skirts, colorful leis and their most fascinating smiles. There were also those who executed a Muslim-inspired dancing with their headdresses on and bamboos all ready for props.
The kids and their parents were also entertained with a magical show, on-site photo opportunities, raffle prizes, food and ice cream. Christina Brias, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Brias, personally handed cupcakes, loot bags, gift items, and cash gifts to the delight of the kids.
The party was full of warmth and love from their families and friends. It was full of enthusiasm and positivity that moved the hearts of the viewers who were there to witness the children’s talents as they continue to bring smile and love to the world.
