It’s been sometime since I posted on my running blog – I’ve been catching up on financial literacy educating myself as I have been working on the legalities of my business, learning the ropes of social media and running as much as I could as a form of relaxation and clarity especially during days when everything in front of me seemed to be mind-blowing.
But I have never left my love for running and supporting causes the best way I can.
I believe God truly sends us assignments that are close to your heart and redirects you to blessings that he knows you’d be able to handle. On 10 March 2011, I was approached by Tita Vicki Abraham of Zonta Club Philippines to create a last minute round of buzz for the RAT Race (Run against Trafficking) for Visayan Forum Foundation. 15 bloggers were able to attend the dinner date for awareness and though we had a problem with the venue; it was such a relief that he redirected us to the newly opened Mario’s Kitchen (which brought me to get-together with an old friend who owns Gweilos Bar and Mario’s Kitchen) and was able to execute the agenda well.
When it comes to movements wherein 100% of the proceeds goes straight to the beneficiaries – I’d gladly extend any form of help and support I can.
In behalf of Zonta Club Philippines and Visayan Forum Foundation, we would like to thank all those who supported the run at Mckinley Hill and those blogging friends who didn’t hesitate and supported to disseminate the information creating a little awareness about Human Trafficking.
Meanwhile on 24 March 2011, I, together with the organizers of Twestival Manila would like to invite you and your friends be with one of the many who will join hundreds of cities around the world to support local causes for Twestival at Le Bistro Vert on Valero Street, Salcedo Village, 8pm for JeepNeed.
Unlike other “run for a cause” or “events for a cause” , 100% of the proceeds of this fantastic global event will be donated to JeepneED to help them successfully pilot, operate and sustain their project.
What is JeepNeed?
Jeepneed is a mobile science and tech lab for rural schools in the Philippines
Their mission is to provide community-driven, financially sustainable in-school support in science and technology on a redesigned jeepney that runs on used vegetable oil.
Their goal is to graduate both academics and farmers by reconnecting the disparity between everyday science and the science of inventors.
JeepneED serves as an engaging outdoor learning lab with 10 netbooks, a 3G hub for Internet connectivity, a printer and scanner, a projector, and other basic science materials for a community of 8 to 12 rural public schools.
Its unique and creative approach to enriching the quality of education for Filipino children is a cause worth supporting!
TWESTIVAL Manila will be hosted by yours truly and TJ Manotoc. See you!
