Gratefulness despite all the uncertainties and struggles
INQUIRER.net BrandRoom / 11:01 AM December 16, 2021
Christmas celebrations look a lot different than the big holiday parties and family reunions before 2020 struck. You’ve probably thought to yourself: “Why do I need to put in so much effort into cooking Noche Buena, if kami kami lang naman?”
If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s never to take anything—or anyone—for granted. This has been two years of uncertainties and struggles but there’s still hope. We hang on to hope with our families, our loved ones, and the traditions we have been sharing with them. The fact that we are alive, that we still find ourselves surrounded by family and friends, and that we can still share mealtimes together, there is still so much to be grateful for. The holiday season is the best time to show how grateful you are for your family. Showing your appreciation isn’t only just through presents under the tree, but also through putting in the effort by cooking up a feast. A Noche Buena that’s as special as your family is what they deserve.
This is why gratefulness was at the center of Eden’s Grateful Christmas Facebook Live Event held last December 9. Eden mom ambassadors Nikka Garcia, Sherilyn Reyes-Tan, and Ciara Magallanes shared real and inspiring stories of what they are grateful for in 2021.
Eden also launched their Eden Gratefulness Bundle in ecommerce, which is a Christmas Bundle initiative for the benefit of Rise Against Hunger Philippines, a non-profit organization that actively implements programs to address food insecurity and malnutrition in the Philippines. For every purchase of the Eden Gratefulness Bundles on Shopee, Eden will donate one (1) Eden Gratefulness Bundle of the same kind to Rise Against Hunger Philippines.

Eden has also released the Eden Gratefulness Instagram & Facebook filter, which aims to spread the cycle of gratefulness and which users can use to express on social media their gratefulness for being with family this Christmas season. It’s very easy to try, users just need to launch the filter from IG/FB, wait for the randomizer to select something to be grateful for, and once selected, the user can nominate a person who matches the description. After, users can explain why they are grateful for them, tag them in the post, and upload it on Facebook or Instagram with their description or story, accompanied by the hashtag #NamnaminPaRinAngPasko, which you can also try through these links:
