Stop Easter Wish BALLOON Release of 'Christ, King of the Universe' Parish!

This campaign has ended.

Stop Easter Wish BALLOON Release of 'Christ, King of the Universe' Parish!

To stop the releasing of balloons with written wish on Easter Sunday.

Why is this important?

GOD made us, humans, to take care of all HE has created. With this kind of event, are we taking care of our only home?

Genesis 2:15 NIV
The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

During a mass last Palm Sunday, 'Christ, King of the Universe Parish' (https://web.facebook.com/CKUParish/ ) announced that they will conduct a balloon release with wishes this Easter Sunday.

All of these balloons, once released, will end up as waste in landfills and other areas which will harm wildlife, marine and terrestrial ecosystems and even clog sewage systems, among others.


Reasons for signing

  • Releasing balloons is not the right way to celebrate Christ’s love for us. Balloons pose a serious danger to nature and wildlife and Christ would not want us to do this commemorating Easter, which is a celebration of His love for us.
  • No to ballons and other single use plastics
  • GOD made us, humans, to take care of all HE has created. With this kind of event, are we taking care of our only home?

According to the Parish Secretary, they will no longer release the balloons to the sky and promised to reuse the balloons that were already procured. Thank you for supporting the petition!

Let's continue to call on our churches and other institutions to avoid wasteful and harmful practices. PROTECT OUR COMMON HOME.
