Follow the spiritutality of Father Martino Nguyen Ba Thong, the children of OBV Vietnam and Campuchia won't receive or give gifts. Instead, as an offering to Jesus on his birthday, they will do some good deeds and make sacrifices for their families, relatives, friends, and neighbours.
In this picture, the children of OBV Cambodia list down the good deeds that they will do this Christmas, and hang them on their tree. In Vietnam, the children will save a part of the December allowance to donate to the homeless on January 12th, 2018, as Father Martino has done every year for his birthday (Jan 13).
