Jollibee celebrates the 20th year of its popular Maaga ang Pasko toy and book drive with the theme “ang pinakamaaga, pinakamahaba at pinakamalaking Pasko. To bring this concept to life, some of the country’s biggest and brightest stars shared their time and talents to join the various activities and encourage more people this early to participate and spread cheer to even more Filipino children.
