Dec. 9: Kiddopreneur Bazaar

When I was younger, I used to bring a lof of my Mom's homemade goodies to school like yema, cheese balls or pastillas and sell them for P8 each because Mom said I shouldn't sell them for less than P5.

This added to my allowance and my classmates from Grade 2 all the way to Grade 6 loooooved these treats! They were gone by recess time.

Mio came home one afternoon asking for another pad of his crosswise pad paper and I wondered why he ran out of it too often. He told me a story that his classmates kept asking him to draw for them and so he obliges. I explained that the paper cost money and that some people actually pay to buy his artworks, told him the same story I just narrated earlier and encouraged him to sell his drawings for P5. The following day, he came home with P20, a smile and I bragged a bit on Facebook only to find out that he might get in trouble in school for that. So I took it back and asked him to return the money to his classmates. Ooops.

I'm telling you this story because I think being entrepreneurial is good. So I'm really thrilled that we've been a part of such a cute and responsible project like the Kiddopreneur Bazaar. The energy is so high, it beats any candy store actually!

So we usually join this to sell the greetings cards, notepads and gift tags that feature Mio's artworks to help raise funds for cancer. This year however, on December 9, Mio will be having his own drawing booth and will sit there the whole day to draw for you. He may have an artist's temperament that day so I'm not sure if he'll be able to accommodate portraits but he'll definitely indulge you with a drawing of his ninjagos, bakugans or Adventure Time. He hasn't decided on the prices yet, but since he's not a very sociable young man, I'm hoping this "new thing" he volunteered to do will get him started on the right foot. So I hope you can drop by, or volunteer to help out at his booth, because we'll need kids to sell with him :)

Sharing with you his business plan for Kiddopreneur! I think it's cute ;)

See you on December 9, Sunday at the Alphaland Mall! :)

October 21: Livestrong Day

In the Philippines, cancer is the third leading cause of death. Yet there are very little cancer prevention programs or consciousness programs. What does this mean? With little awareness or concern, for your relative, friend, officemate or you, this may mean, recognizing it too late, diagnosing too late or less chances of surviving. In the Philippines, cancer survival rates are low.

Team Philippines Benefitting LIVESTRONG works to change these facts because we know we live in a society where change can easily be done. But we just need your support. In our society, spreading knowledge is about creating the numbers, coming together as one group of individuals who empower each other, and demand change.  Think about your friend or family member, or that story you heard from someone else – those people who have faced cancer, are fighting cancer or whose lives were forever changed by cancer. They are the people we are coming together for. 

Every year, Lance Armstrong celebrates his induction into cancer on October 2nd. Team Philippines, supports this organization because we believe that the Lance Armstrong Foundation is one that attacks cancer holistically. The fight is not only about the research or the medication. It is about the people who are fighting, their families who are strong and struggling, the lifestyles that keep us healthy and cancer-free and the awareness that we need to take action.

This year, we will hold the Philippine event on October 21st, a Sunday. It is a bike-and-run event designed to unite, inspire, and empower people affected by cancer as well as to promote the need for healthy lifestyles. The proceeds of which will support local projects that furthers the advocacies of LIVESTRONG.

The LIVESTRONG Foundation was founded in 1997 by Lance, whose mission is to inspire and empower people affected by cancer, to unite people to fight cancer through programs, experiences, taking aim at the gap between what is known and what is done, for cancer prevention, providing access to screening and care, research – to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors – that you must not let cancer take control of it. 

The annual event is now known as LIVESTRONG Day Philippines, hosted by Circulo Verde, an Ortigas & Company development in Calle Industria, Quezon City. Thankfully, we are not alone in this fight. Organizations like the Ortigas & Company have been gracious in extending their support. Aside from Circulo Verde supporting us, we have Makati Medical Center, Nattural Quality Corporation’s Ampalaya Plus, Booster C energy shots, Gold’s Gym, MyTAG, San Miguel Beer, Manila Water, Enduro & Trifemme Sports, Multisport magazine, BikeBros, LoopBikers, PasigMTB,,  the Pasig City Running Club, and for our online all-mode payment portal.

Coming together empowers, it is our strength. It reminds us that we are not alone in this fight and there are many others that need our support.

Last year, Team Philippines Benefitting LIVESTRONG asked the Philippines to imagine their world without cancer.

This year, we ask for your strength. We believe that coming together, fighting as an entire society gives strength.

We encourage everyone to come. We believe that Unity is Strength.

PS. Mio Fights Cancer will be there to sell the last batch of our iCANCERvive baller bands along with our phone cases. We hope you support! :)
