Bear-y Christmas! Check out stuffed toy designed by Charisse Abalos
Mandaluyong councilor Charisse Abalos showed off her creative side as she helped decorate a stuffed toy bear for Christmas.
In a Facebook post, Abalos posed beside the bear with a personalized paper mache. The stuffed toy is displayed inside EDSA Shangri-La Hotel.
The bear was dressed in barong Tagalog and salakot, a traditional hat. It is carrying a small lantern and a colorful basket.
Abalos said the stuffed bears will be sold for a good cause.
“This is to help raise funds for Kythe Foundation, an organization that cares for children who have cancer. All proceeds from the sale of the polar bears made of paper mache (designed and decorated by select personalities) will go to the Kythe Foundation,” she said.
