The 41st National Anniversary Celebration (NAC 41) of the Brotherhood for Christian and Professionals will benefit eight charities in Laguna and Cavite.
Bro. Al Mamonong, Area Managing Director of the BCBP for Southern Tagalog Region, said the eight charities are the Missionaries of Charity Home for the Abandoned and Physically and Mentally Disabled Children in Tagaytay and Trece Martirez, Cavite; the Bukid Kabataan Home of Molested Children in San Pablo,Laguna; the Bahay San Jose Home of Abandoned Children in General Trias, Cavite; the Bahay ni Maria Home for the Eldrely in Calamba, Laguna; the Mary Mother of Mercy Home for the Elderly in San Pedro, Laguna; the Canossa Health and Social Center Foundation in Silang, Cavite; the Don Bosco Seminary and the Don Bosco Tech Vocational Education and Training in Calauan and Canlubang, Laguna.
Proceeds from the NAC41 will be equally divided to the said charities.
Bro. Al explained that several activities for the NAC 31 have been happening since mid July. And just like the NAC 41 proper, they are all designed to raise funds for charitable causes.
These activities include a Virtual Bike and Run Challenge where BCBP members got to do an online run, submit their results for a chance to win prizes, and be able to help several charities in the process.
There is also a Virtual Praise Jam music video-making contest where the top 12 entries would be streamed during the Sabado Night Fellowship.
“The NAC 41 is the biggest Social Action project of the BCBP that you can ever think of. All proceeds from the 500 pesos registration of each participant, to the sale of commemorative t-shirts, the entry fees for the virtual run and bike challenge, and the entry fees for the Praise Jam would all go to charity,” he said.
