The Sandy Project: Now in its 5th Year

Sandy_Project

Dengue has already become a year-round threat in the Philippines. As a mom of 3 kids aged 11, 8 and 6, seeing and hearing all those news about dengue makes me worry a lot. So I see to it that my kids were armed with the best of health, long pants to wear at school + mosquito repellant and patches. If my kid had a rash or an insect bite I get panicky and I pray that it’s not Dengue.
The Sandy Project: Now in its 5th year, is An advocacy that aims to teach schoolers the dangers of dengue and how to protect themselves from the dreadful disease. With this milestone, a fundraising activity is set to happen on Feb. 12 at the Green Sun building in Makati City.
Based on national surveillance data collected between 2011 and 2015, 
There was an average of 220 dengue cases reported across the Philippines every day. InterHealth
With dengue making headlines again following the deaths of several children related to the controversial vaccine and immunization program launched by the government last year, Aranas is convinced the Sandy Project is on the right track, hence their “Night of Thanksgiving and Charitable Giving” event this month.
It was Ma. Louella “Peaches” Aranas, who started the advocacy in 2013 after her daughter Sandy succumbed to dengue at the age of 10 years old. Her group is looking for benefactors who would help the project reach at least 5,000 school kids this year.

“Children should be empowered to take care of themselves. Thus I’m hoping Sandy Project will have a stronger impact on the kids, because they’ll realize Sandy was a child too. Maybe there will be one less Sandy this year. That’s just my goal,” Aranas said.

Jollibee celebrates milestone 40th year with anniversary anthem featuring Gary Valenciano and Sarah Geronimo

Jollibee - Apat na Dekada
Apat na Dekada. Jollibee marks 40 years of spreading joy with a new anniversary jingle, performed by two of the country’s biggest stars, Gary Valenciano and Sarah Geronimo.

 

Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo join forces for a one-of-a-kind collaboration that capture the joy-filled stories of Filipinos to mark the 40th anniversary of the country’s number one fast food chain.

Entitled ‘Apat na Dekada’, the upbeat and heart-warming song encapsulates four decades of joyful moments shared with generations of Filipinos who have made Jollibee a part of their lives. The song was composed by Thyro Alfaro in collaboration with Jollibee’s creative agency, McCann World Group Philippines.

For the past 40 years, Jollibee has been a home to stars who have served as their brand ambassadors. The stellar list includes Sarah and Gary who headlined some of the most memorable Jollibee campaigns but none quite as special as the 40th anniversary anthem.

One of the brand’s first endorsers, Gary shared how it feels to have reached full circle, “I was happy then, overjoyed now because it is 40 years later and I’m doing something with them again.”

For her part, Sarah has been a part of the Jollibee family since 2005 and has since become one of the country’s biggest superstars, growing a wider audience in the same way that Jollibee has continued to spread its reach in the country and across the globe.

While recording the song, the two artists felt waves of nostalgia as they looked back at their own Jollibee moments with their loved ones.

“‘Yung entirety nung message nung kanta, inisa-isa niya ‘yung simple joys of life, ‘yung simple pero masagana, sincere at totoong-totoo kasi ako mismo nakita ko ‘yun, naranasan ko ‘yun, at naramdaman ko ‘yun,” shared Sarah.

Because the song struck a chord in both singers, they agreed it would also easily resonate among many Filipinos. The Popstar Royalty added, “Kasi ‘yung Jollibee it’s not just a brand. Pinapahalagahan talaga ‘yung values ng pamilyang Pilipino, at saka yung importansya ng saya ng pagiging isang buong pamilya. Iyon ‘yung dahilan kung bakit naging malapit sa puso nating mga Pilipino ‘yung Jollibee.”

According to Gary, he was very happy that the brand had gone global. “I think that they’ve really been able to master that touch of going out of their way, maybe even bending backwards, to stick to what is Filipino, through and through, and it’s now creating an impact. Now people are seeing the consistency and I think that’s something I commend them for. So I think expanding into other countries is not only going to bring a piece of the product to them but it’s also going to bring a piece of the Filipino heart to people all over the world,” he shared.

This is the first taste of many surprises in store for Jollibee’s 40th anniversary year-long celebration. Be part of this special milestone by watching the special music video (LINK) and relive your very own jolly moments!

 In here, you can have your hair cut done together with your kids. Isn’t that Cool! But this depends on the hair stylists availability so better book for an appointment just to be sure cause I think they can only accommodate a few number of clients at a time.

Did I mention that it’s a nail salon too? Look!!!
