Scarlet Snow shared color and happiness with the kids and birthday celebrants of the Right Start Community in San Juan City as she celebrated her 4th birthday by surprising her fellow youngsters with a special bubble-designed party.
Right Start is a non-profit organization that provides Creative Caring Spaces, enabling underprivileged kids to engage in different afterschool activities like music, sports, reading, and arts.
Since 2017, the Belo-Kho family has been supporting the Right Start Community’s advocacy and has already held several celebrations. This time, the family decided to spend Scarlet’s birthday with the children.
“Ang theme ng party ni Scarlet ay The Gift of Gratitude. Galing sa Bibliya, higit na mapalad ang nagbibigay, it’s better to give than to receive. Ang ibig sabihin non, higit na masaya ang nagbibigay kaysa tumatanggap. Hindi kailangan na sobrang yaman para magbigay at hindi rin kailangan pera or gamit. Pwede tayo magbigay ng oras, ng talent, minsan ‘yung mga salita na nakaka-uplift or encourage. So tinuturo po namin kay Scarlet ‘yon kaya namin ginagawa ito” shared Hayden Kho.
It was a fun day for Scarlet and the kids as the party was jam-packed with activities, including a magic performance and a puppet show. A couple of children also experienced what it was like inside a bubble with the help of a giant bubble wand. Every corner of the room was filled with bubble-like balloons and there was even a ball pit where kids could just jump in and play.
While they enjoyed all of the activities, one of the most anticipated parts of the birthday celebration was the blowing of the birthday candles. For the big event, there were surprises upon surprises from Red Ribbon.
For the birthday girl, the well-loved bakeshop brought in her favorite Rainbow Dedication Cake. Scarlet also shared her blessings by surprising each of the Right Start celebrants with their own Rainbow Dedication Cake with Theme Toppers.
“Every time we have a celebration, there’s one birthday cake and everybody nagbo-blow ng candle. Kasi parang they look forward to it, it’s fascinating that there is a candle and there’s a cake. Parang it’s symbolic na, eto na nagse-celebrate na talaga ako. And they can make a wish pa. So, it’s one of the fun parts of the celebration that they get to blow their candle. Lalo na ngayon na each celebrant has a cake, thanks to Red Ribbon and Doc Hayden.” shared Rosalie Mallari, one of the founders of Right Start.
All of the guests and the Right Start kids enjoyed the chocolate fudge icing and filling and were wowed by the three-layer multi-colored cake of Rainbow Dedication Cake. The delicious birthday cake was also topped up with Red Ribbon Theme Toppers making the celebration extra fun.
Red Ribbon has always been part of the celebrations of Filipinos, making each gathering sweeter. Now on its 40th year, Red Ribbon in partnership with the Belo-Kho family, surprised Right Start kids that they will be giving away year round cakes for the birthdays of the kids, enabling more kids to have their best birthday with Red Ribbon Rainbow Dedication Cake.
As a celebration of its 40th year, this gesture by the Belo-Kho family is a clear testimonial that when you care a little bit more, you make is special, you make it Red Ribbon.
