Dear Friends, Colleagues and Advocates of Educational Development,

Greetings and Good News!

The Ateneo Center for Educational Development (ACED) wishes to announce
the amazing success story actualized last Christmas 2006! With the help
of the Ateneo Community and our faithful private partners, ACED has
triumphantly realized its Christmas Gift Giving Program for 700 most
indigent public elementary school pupils from Bagong Silangan Elementary
School, Culiat Elementary School, Lupang Pangako Elementary School, &
Payatas B Annex Elementary School.

700 Gift Packs containing two cans of sardines, one can of meatloaf, three
pack of instant noodles, one pair of rubber slippers, one toy and two
kilos of  rice  were given out to the project beneficiaries . Because of
this simple yet meaning present, Christmas 2006 was definitely a dream
come true for the students and their family.

To pay homage to the great men and women who shared their care, time and
blessings to indigent public school pupils whose Christmas wishes were
granted by this amazing project, ACED proudly presents this heart-warming
poem written by Jessica Jenna P. Valdez, a grade six pupil from Culiat
Elementary School. Jessica was fortunately chosen to become a beneficiary
of this project--

"Thanks for the Gift"

To our brother and sister Ateneans
Our heartfelt gratitude for your concern
In sharing us the blessing that
We have been wishing

The token you had given us
Had been a great help this Christmas
To our school and families
All cheers and joy this season brings

You all taught us what Christmas means--
It's giving gifts and sharing the blessings,
Seeing people with smiles on their faces
And go through what the New Year brings

In behalf of Jessica, pupil-recipients and their families, the ACED family
wishes to express its heart-felt gratitude to the following people who
became amazing Santa Clauses last Christmas.
