The most awaited yearly Christmas shopping event of Western Mindanao will happen on December 11. On its 11th year, the Tzu Chi One Mega Christmas Fair commits to the people and visitors of Asia’s Latin City a bigger and more choices for Christmas gifts and give-aways this year at the Garden Orchid Hotel. This is the annual fund raising activity of Tzu Chi Foundation to support its different humanitarian programs and project. Organizer said that there will be raffle prizes, contests, entertainers, and magicians to make the 2011 mega event more enjoyable. Entrance is free!

Tzu Chi Foundation (tzu chi means compassionate relief) is a non-profit organization founded in 1966 by Times Magazine Top 100 Most Influential Person of the World, Dharma Master Cheng Yen. The Foundation is known for the astonishing speed and efficiency with which it brings aid to victims of natural disasters. Wherever calamities occur, Tzu Chi volunteers and experts arrive promptly, dispensing food, medicine, blankets and warm clothing (as they did recently in Japan) and, in the long term, rebuilding homes, clinics and schools.

In Zamboanga City, they have quietly helped our city cope up during natural and man-made disasters in the last 10 years. It also built the Tzu Chi Rehab and Eye Center at the Zamboanga Medical Center offering free medical services. This year it is supporting and helping the impoverished community in Layag-Layag, Talon-Talon.

Do your early Christmas shopping here and be a blessing to humanity.
