A Gift that Gives Back

Share the joy of Christmas! With every purchase of a Christmas Paper Ornament, a donation will be made in your name to Save the Children Philippines. Each ornament will fund Project ARAL (Access to Resources for Alternative Learning). The project ensures that children ages three to 12 years old continue learning by providing age-appropriate educational materials that can be used at home. The paper ornament will be placed in Manila Marriott’s Christmas tree with your name on it for only P100. Apart from the paper ornament initiative, once again, Manila Marriott, Sheraton Manila, and Courtyard by Marriott Iloilo curates a Charity Hamper—a plush robe, two pairs of indoor slippers, and towel set complete with a tote bag.
