Stay strong for the #NextNormal: Think deeply, pray fervently, live bravely

Veronica Velarde-Pulumbarit, a journalism graduate of UP Diliman, has been a writer

and editor for almost 30 years. In 2017, she was chosen as one of the 100 Fearless Filipinas. She is a PWD with spinal tumor and slipped disc caused by a childhood accident.

My husband Riz and I wanted to create something that could give hope and encouragement this Christmas despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

We thought of making a giftbook that would remind people to pause, pray, and reflect before the year 2020 ends.

2020 has been a difficult year for many of us. We especially remember our friends who have succumbed to COVID-19. This book is dedicated to their memory and in honor of medical heroes.

Please feel free to share this little book. Available below are various formats: PDF, mp4, and flip book.

However, we would be very happy and grateful if, in exchange for this humble book,

you would extend a little kind deed to a person in need or perhaps make a

donation of any amount to any charitable institution such as our

favorite charity: CARITAS MANILA (,

the lead social service ministry of the Catholic Church.

Thank you very much and may God bless you. Stay strong for the #NextNormal.

“We cannot all do great things but we can do small things with great love.”

— Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta
