                      Wishes for a blessed and

Merry Christmas

go to each and every one of you, on behalf of all those who have gone before us who now rest in peace and too, from those who represent us all now in the OBU:

Tony Morrissey, Bill Halcro, Tony Smith, John Barclay Br. Paul Murphy and myself.

Christmas ~The dream of the founder of Marscom Television, Br. Oswin McKinney, to assist disadvantaged children, is realised with the launch of "The Children's Manifesto". It comes on the 25th anniversary of the founding of Marscom Television and co-incides with the 20th anniversary of Kids 4 Kids Inc. This project is based on the documentary  "The 3rd Millennium".

Young people around the world are supporting one of the most audacious attempts to bring awareness to the plight of disadvantaged children globally. Hundreds of students from Marist Pagewood blazed a path into the 3rd Millennium and beyond. They declared “The Children’s Manifesto”; carrying the legacy of the children of the 2nd. Millennium into the future.

Hundreds more students, those of La Salle College, Greenhills in the Philippines then offered their support, recording “The Children’s Manifesto” in English and Tagalog, as the legacy was sent onwards to Peru and Brazil for the recording in Spanish and Portuguese.

# Since "The Children's Manifesto" started broadcasting, it has now been translated/recorded in 9 languages.
